Vikings Coach Mike Zimmer Invites Media To Film Session

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- The Minnesota Vikings' head coach Mike Zimmer invited members of the media to a special event this week.

He held a film session with members of the press, breaking down Vikings gameplay video so that reporters could better understand his strategies as a coach, and the game itself.

"I think it's good for you guys," Zimmer said. "I think it's a good, healthy relationship and I'd like to keep it that way."

The session showed that this was a comfortable role for him: as a teacher.

"I love doing film work and I love motivating guys too," he said. "This is kind of my setting, where I feel comfortable with the players, asking them questions."

Zimmer says he wants smart players on the Vikings, and he's making sure of it.

"If we don't win enough games, I get changed. If they don't play good, they get changed," he said.
