We all pretty much knew that Mike Zimmer is a bit of a dick, but it’s always nice to have video proof of these sort of things:

I’m not saying LaFleur is the next Lombardi, but he has already solidified himself within Packers history, and even NFL history for the matter. His historic freshman season as head coach will be talked about for a long time, and now Zimmer’s snub will be a part of that history.
Zimmer was quoted last week by NFL.com about jokingly implying he wished QB Aaron Rodgers would retire:
Either me or him have to get out of this division at some point. It’s too hard to go against him. He’s too damn good. You guys should try to talk him into retiring.
While being recorded and closely observed, this made him seem like a good sport and maybe even a decent guy. But after LaFleur and Green Bay put him and the Vikings over their knee in front of their home crowd, the real Mike Zimmer came out in full display.
What a perfect coach for such a vapid fan base. They deserve each other.
