The Mike Zimmer for Coach of the Year résumé is already building.

We're only two weeks into the year and already the team is down its starting QB, RB and LT. We're 2-0. His case will only get stronger as the team keeps winning.

you were saying...?

Just think if we made the Super Bowl or even a deep playoff run this year without AP or BH2O it would definitely show how great a coach and coaching staff we really have.

Could Spielman make a case for Executive of the Year if Bradford makes it through the year healthy and leads the team to the playoffs?

With the way Spielman has built this team with smart draft picks, plus the fact that the Bradford trade will look like a bargain if we are that successful...I'd say yes.

Terrance Newman: “I was one of the guys that was lobbying for Mike to get a head coaching job way back when. He’s as good as they come. He knows every facet of the game — offense, defense and special teams. He’s done a great job with this team, for sure.’’

We often focus on talent in the NFL, but coaching is an underrated part of a team’s success. In the span of a month, the Vikings lost franchise quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, once-in-a-generation running back Adrian Peterson, starting left tackle Matt Kalil and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd to injuries. But the first three weeks of the season—all wins for Minnesota—have turned Zimmer into an early front-runner for coach of the year.

His biggest competition might be the man wearing a hoodie in Foxboro. In New England, the Patriots’ ability to keep winning not just without Tom Brady, but also without Jimmy Garoppolo, has earned Bill Belichick almost as much respect as his Super Bowls. What Zimmer has done in Minnesota has been Patriots-esque, to the point that “Do Your Job” is a phrase commonly uttered around the Vikings’ Winter Park headquarters.

The identity that Zimmer wanted to establish when he took over the team in 2014 started with the simple idea that winning is the result of playing fundamentally sound football. A deep roster and an aggressive trade for Sam Bradford helped the Vikings withstand critical personnel losses, but Zimmer’s philosophy has been the driving force behind their early-season success.

“We are going to be technicians, and we are going to do our job better than anyone else in the league,” says defensive line assistant Andre Patterson, who has coached with Zimmer at four different pro and college stops since 1988. “It doesn’t matter who is out there, your technique, and doing your job is going to allow us to be successful. So when somebody goes down, and the next guy goes in, we all believe that guy is going to do things correctly. Your players don’t panic, and no one thinks, I’ve gotta make more plays because someone is missing.”

I got a kick out of this, caught this on the Vikings app. Deion is a believer in Zimmer!

a story about Zimmer's relationship with Bill Parcells, and how it is similar to a coach mentoring a younger player. but now Zimmer as a coach is getting the mentoring and support from a veteran.

Hilarious! Well written and well performed. I'll never get that out of my head.

"Cause we've got Zimmer, Zimmer now..."

Zimmer: “I think it’s 0-0 now, and we start a new season. You just forget about what has happened in the past, and we start moving on. For us, I think it’s an 11-game season, and we’ll see where we’re at then.”

Not unlike Bruce Arians in Arizona, Zimmer's long-awaited ascension doubles as a case study of a very real problem in the NFL: Two of the game's brightest minds were passed over time and again for the annual wave of buzzy candidates and hot, young coordinators du jour -- too many of whom wind up flushed out of a job within a few seasons as the process begins all over again.

"Here's the thing about Mike ... ," said former Cowboys vice president of player personnel and current NFL.com writer Gil Brandt. "Mike had a goal set that he wanted to become a coach in the National Football League. And he turned down an opportunity to become a head coach at Nebraska [in 2004] to stay as an assistant coach [with the Cowboys]. Very few people roll the dice that way."

I calculated the 16-game running average of point differential, turnover differential, and wins over the last 16 games since Zimmer took over:






Also, here are points allowed per game, and yards allowed per game:
