Mike Zimmer had another eye surgery, his fifth

No one has to worry about Vikings coach Mike Zimmer overseeing the start of offseason workouts, since he’s working on simply seeing.

According to Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings coach was scheduled for his fifth eye surgery Monday.

Zimmer has had constant problems with his right eye, but if this latest one goes well, he’d only need a cataract surgery in a few months.

Coaches have an extremely limited role in the first phase of offseason workouts anyway, so it’s not as if Zimmer’s missing much. He missed a game in December after an emergency surgery, but came back to coach later in the season.

  1. I hope this goes well because it has got to be stressful. Your eyesight is nothing to mess around with but the occupational hazard of watching the Vikings try to play football must be a contributing factor. Maybe for his long term health, he should consider another job or at least another team.

  2. it’ll be interesting to see how this years pans out after the packers went all out and upgraded their secondary after yet another humiliating postseason loss, and they even fired Dom Capers too… oh, wait.

    Face it inbred cheeseheads; even with only one eye Zimmers defense will always give the Vikings a better chance than anything you have on your pathetic squad.

    But, hey maybe you’ll get lucky with injuries to other teams in the division again.

  3. Ya, the Packers going to the playoffs for 8 straight years is just a matter of luck, right? Maybe Rick Speilman will get lucky and actually have one of their draft picks show up and start, that is of the draft picks he has traded away for a useless Qb that went 3-8 when the playoffs were on the line.

  4. How can you say that the Vikings have a better chance when they don’t even make the playoffs.

    By definition – the Packers, with all their warts, have a better chance because you’re not even getting into the party.

  5. Fifth eye surgery? I hope it works out.

    He should stay a little longer and opt for gastric bypass. Have you seen this guy lately?

    I didn’t think you guys were into playoff participation ribbons.

  7. Hey Zimmer, even 5 more surgeries aren’t gonna help! Every time you look in the mirror you’ll still be looking at an idiot for destroying your career by taking the minisoda job.
