Current Minnesota Vikings head coach and former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator is known for more than just being a great, defensive-minded coaching talent. In fact, as many of his former players might tell you, he's well-known for telling his defensive units exactly what went wrong on a specific play.

Few instances exemplify this better than this video from his days with the Bengals, as he rips into his defense for an unsatisfactory effort on the field.

The faces of each player in that impromptu sideline huddle say it all. They know they're about to hear it from Zimmer and he certainly doesn't disappoint in his delivery.

Hopefully Zimmer can rally his new-look Vikings' defense in 2020, as Minnesota lost a ton of defensive talent this offseason.
