The Minnesota Vikings are nearing a deal with Cincinnati’s defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer that would make him the team’s next head coach. According to reports, the Vikings were moving toward a deal that would likely be finalized by Wednesday.
When the Minnesota Vikings let head coach Leslie Frazier go, many fans said they’d like to see a more fiery coach on the sidelines. It appears they’re getting their wish. Just down the road from Vikings’ headquarters, the lunch crowd at Joe Senser’s watched Wednesday’s reports with a mix of hope and weariness. “I probably have been disappointed enough times that I’m never that optimistic anymore,” said Vikings fan Matt Johnson.

When the San Diego Chargers went into Denver last month and beat the Broncos, no doubt some eyebrows were raised. Now, imagine if they do it again this Sunday.
The only two notable names that could miss this Sunday’s game between the 49ers and Panthers are Steve Smith and Carlos Rogers. While it’s unlikely that Smith will sit, it would not be a surprise to see Rogers not dressed. Regardless of what happens, both teams will be fine, and shouldn’t have to make any major adjustments.
