Zimmer to Oakland?
Heard a rumor Zimmer might be offered the head coaching job in Oakland. What do you guys think about him as a coach?

Well he has a point, I dont see Zimmer leaving. I think the Bengals are his team soon. Our "director of football operations" or some such **** retired, and Katie Blackburn (Mike's daughter) has been seemingly more active lately. Leading a lot of people to believe Mike's days of absolute control are over. Very evident in the most recent draft. Brown wanted Mallett...bad. Gruden and Marvin said no, we need Dalton. Ive been a fan of making Marvin the first GM in Bengals history. He has a working relationship with the Brown family and the players like him. His shortcomings are on the field for in game decisions.

And what the hell is with Oakland wanting to be the Cincinnati Bengals West?

Hue, Bresnahan, Palmer, TJ, Ndukwe....

We would hate to lose Zimmer. Don't know how he would be as a Head Coach, but he's a solid Def Coord.

I loved Zimmer in his Cowboy days. That is all.

Now hearing his name along with Marty Schottenheimer as HC candidates in Tampa

I heard he is going to interview for the HC job at Miami.

I would be really surprized if Mike Zimmer was with the Bengals next year.

Zimmer is really good at getting a lot out of nothing. I don't think he would be a bad head coach in that respect.

Honestly, he doesn't having any head coaching experience yet. He's just as much of a gamble as any other unknown at this point. His experience under a lot of different head coaches should give him some insight on how to run a team efficiently though.
