Social media has blown up, especially Twitter, with former NFL stars and members of the Minnesota Vikings expressing their excitement for new Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.

Vikings defensive end Brian Robison said Zimmer brings an attitude that is the "opposite" of Leslie Frazier, who was fired following Minnesota's disappointing 5-10-1 season.

"From the sounds of it, he's a guy that’s very passionate about his job," Robison told Ben Goessling of ESPN. "He will yell and cuss at you if you need it, and at the same time praises you when you deserve it. He sounds like kind of the opposite of Frazier -- a lot of passion, excitement and emotion."

Here's the rundown of all the praise Zimmer has received on Twitter, starting with Hall of Fame defensive back Deion Sanders.
