So what Captain Munnerlyn?
If THAT'S how players need to think in order to motivate themselves, then we can tell why this team has gone straight in the toilet. Who cares what this win or loss means to the OTHER team even if that team is your rival? What happened to going out and doing your job? This team is a mess mentally and I don't know how it happened. Must have something to do with Zimmer's approach. Zimmer needs to get these guys' heads right, forget letting outside stuff get in there. Who cares where the Packers are in the standings? Who cares if the coach is in the hospital with his eye gouged out? Who cares if the creaky old broken-down running back has returned from his latest catastrophic injury? Sure, there are great players who perform amazing feats when emotionally aroused beyond what is normal. Brett Favre comes to mind as one example. But guess what? Most players are not great players. Most players are at their best when on an even-keel emotionally. The Vikings are way too up-and-down. This team reminds me of the Vikings under Mike Tice when it seemed everyone was on a roller coaster. I almost miss Mr. Taciturn Leslie Frazier.If the #Vikings miss the playoffs, Captain Munnerlyn is going to make sure the Packers do too#SKOL https://t.co/OFQefdzE2e— The Viking Age (@TheVikingAge) December 20, 2016
