Mike Zimmer gives ruthless answer on Daniel Carlson cut

Minnesota Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson reacts after missing a field goal in the final seconds of overtime an NFL football game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday Sept. 16 2018 in Green Bay Wis. The game ended in a 29-29 tie

The Vikings ended up tied with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but they really should have come out on top. Forbath was fine and all, but in a season with Super Bowl expectations, they drafted Auburn's Daniel Carlson in the fifth round, higher than any other kicker drafted in the history of a Minnesota franchise that's. He became one of the greatest kickers in college history, never missing an extra point in almost two hundred attempts and set the SEC scoring record with 480 points. Still, Forbath made 89 percent of his kicks, even if his eight missed extra points with the Vikings maddened Zimmer.

According to Courtney Cronin of ESPN, head coach Mike Zimmer had a brutal response in the reasoning why Carlson was let go just two games into his career. But on Sunday, in his second regular-season game, he went 0-of-3 on field goals.

Zimmer: "Did you see the game?". "Rick and I will sit down and we'll talk about it", Zimmer said, via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
