Mike Zimmer and the Minnesota Vikings are entering the final week of another disappointing season. For the second consecutive year, and for the first time under Zimmer, the Vikings are going to miss the playoffs.

Throughout the season there have been questions surrounding Zimmer's future in Minnesota, and they are only more magnified heading into Week 18.

When Zimmer was asked about it, he had a simple and solid response about his time in Minnesota so far, whether it continues or comes to an end.

'Regardless of anything that goes on after the season, I can stand proud. When I walk into a stadium like Lambeau (Field) or I walk into U.S. Bank Stadium and I say to myself, a billion people would love to be sitting here right now and doing this job."

With a loss in Week 18, the Vikings would be handed their first double-digit loss season under Zimmer. While there's still no final word on Zimmer's future in Minnesota past this week, we know he's at peace with it either way.
