The last scariest Minnesota Viking is none other than the snot rocket-launching head coach himself, Mike Zimmer. With his beady eyes, weathered-looking face, and cheeks that always seem to be flushed red, Zimmer can be an intimidating coach.
When he is fired up and screaming at a player, men who are twice his size cower in fear. Refs also tend to shy away when Zim is rattled and screaming and pointing at something he didn’t agree with on the field.
Zimmer is also frightening for what he can do with a team’s defense. He is a true mastermind when it comes to hiding coverages and disguising blitzes.
He is the innovator of the double A-gap blitz, and his coaching style has created sack monsters on the field. He can be terrifying for an opposing offensive coordinator to gameplan against, as he often will do things that they don’t plan for.
So don’t let his quiet, whispery voice fool you. This guy is as tough as they come, and will even coach a game with a hideous looking eyepatch masking half his face. Mike Zimmer may be short in stature, but he is a fiery individual who can make a big man shrivel or turn to stone in fear with a single look. He is very scary indeed.
