Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is clearly a master motivator.
When the Vikings showed up at the team facility this week, each player found a shirt in his locker with the NFC North logo on the front and the words “Beat Green Bay” on the back.
Zimmer admitted today that he had the shirts made.
“We’re making way too big a deal out of it. It’s just a T-shirt,” the coach added. “You can go down to the store and print them up. It’s not a big deal.”
The game is a pretty big deal though.
The Packers will travel to Minnesota to face a 7-2 Vikings team, that has won five in a row. Their last loss came at Denver in week 3.
And you know how the Packers are playing.
Still, these head to head games with the Vikings could still decide the division. Despite the three-game losing streak, a win on Sunday would put the Packers right back in the driver’s seat for the division title.
And if you’re looking for any sort of bright spot, it’s that the Vikings are 1-9-1 against the Packers since Brett Favre’s first year quarterbacking the team, which was 2009.
Of course, that stat isn’t going to win the Packers any games right now.
Kicking us while we are down? We will show them! Uh maybe…
“the Vikings are 1-9-1 against the Packers since Brett Favre’s first year quarterbacking the team”
This must mean after Favre’s first year because he beat GB twice that season.
Them wearing these just show how they know the Packers are above them. Way to put us on a pedestal :)
sure hope mcCarthy doesn’t resort to T-shirt motivation tactics anytime soon….
Then again….maybe we need hoodies or down jackets? Ughhhhhhh….
35-10 Vikings. Peterson will rush for 200 yards and that would actually benefit us, because then Capers would finally get fired.
At least the season is turning out to be interesting. Winning all of the time can get boring…
They don’t need T-Shirts. All they have to do is show up, which is more than we did last week at Lambeau. I just hope we don’t get embarrassed….again….
Every one year in 10 the Vikings beat the Packers and win the division and all they do is gloat about it. But then again, that’s pretty much their Super Bowl for them.
They should send s couple of those shirts to the packers locker room…
BTW :Great pic of “Howdy” Zimmer
Howdy Doody For President
Their coach is a jackass with giant fucking ears. Every 10 or years they win the division and what happens after that??? Yeah they usually get humiliated in the playoffs in a brutal fashion. Fuck the Viqueens and their moronic fans.
