Zimmer, Vikings left looking for answers
The excitement of beating New Orleans in the first round of the NFL playoffs quickly gave way to resounding thud of a loss to San Francisco on Saturday for the Minnesota Vikings.
That left Vikings coach Mike Zimmer searching for answers a day after the loss, including calling mentor Bill Parcells for some guidance.
Both Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman enter this next season in the final years of their contracts. The Vikings also lost offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski to the Cleveland Browns and let go defensive coordinator George Edwards.
And the Vikings have to decide on the future of quarterback Kirk Cousins, who enters the final year of his three-year contract that will pay the quarterback $84 million.
