No, Vikings fans. Despite what Mike Zimmer says, the Vikings are not almost 2-0
September 22, 2021
Bill Parcells, Hall of Famer and mentor to Mike Zimmer, has been known to inadvertently call Zim while the Vikings coach is in the middle of a news conference.
The man who popularized the phrase "You are what your record says you are" might want to pick up the phone again this week and flag his protégé for violating that classic Parcells mantra not once but twice after Sunday's wrenching 34-33 loss at Arizona.
On Sunday evening, Zimmer said, "We were probably two plays away from being 2-0." That's a reference to Dalvin Cook's fumble in overtime at Cincinnati in Week 1 and Greg Joseph's 37-yard missed field goal as time expired at Arizona.
