Imagine if NFL coaches treated losses the way President Trump has treated the election results…

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is claiming the Vikings, despite their 6-7 record, have won 11 games and already have clinched a playoff spot.

Officials have made many, many bad calls and that should not be held against us,Zimmer said. We beat Seattle and Tennessee and Dallas and, come on, does anyone really believe the Atlanta Falcons are better than us?

The Vikings lost to the Seahawks, Titans and Cowboys by a combined five points and the Falcons were winless when they faced Minnesota.

Zimmer said the Vikings26-14 loss Sunday to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also belongs in the win column.

Did you see that pass interference penalty at the end of the half that set up a Tampa Bay field goal? No way that was interference. No way,Zimmer said. We also had three missed field goals and a missed extra point. Once we prove the Bucs moved the goalposts when Dan Bailey attempted his kicks, and they absolutely did, we win 24-23.

The math works, Zimmer insisted.

We are appealing to the NFL commissioner to have those five losses overturned into Ws,Zimmer said.

President Donald Trump tweeted that Zimmer has his full support.

The winless New York Jets, one-win Jacksonville Jaguars and 2-10-1 Cincinnati Bengals also are supporting the Vikingsappeal to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Just imagine.

Imagine reposting the same trash article twice on Bleacher Report. It’s like CNN,MSNBC, or NPR not covering the Hunter Biden investigation (after calling it Russian Disinformation) at all then bringing it up again. Both proving the sources are a waste of time.

This article is trash and very disrespectful to the POTUS. Thank you Ryan for speaking up! I agree with you!

Agree! I am sick and tired of sports journalists getting into politics. When they do…surprise, surprise! They are libtards. Please stop!

What an asshole you are. Yeah, we should all lay down and wave the surrender flag when our opponent cheats. Great advice for all, right? Asshole. GFY.

Dumb, Imagine if Joe Biden led the football team…scandals everywhere and he would never remember the players name or what team he was coaching.
