I was surprised to read about the Vikings' "64 year history." Did the Vikings play somewhere else before 1961?

Awesome news! Amazed Spielman didn't screw this up and hire someone he could push around. No way Zimmer let's him run the show. Great news for all Vikings fans!

Hmmm, long time assistant, never in the big job till later in his career. Can you say CHILI? Let's hope this guy is not so set in his ways and determined to not listen to anyone after waiting 30 years for the job.

Vikings replaced one good man with another. He handled the death of his wife as well as any man could.
