Zim must interview horribly. His record of placing defenses in the top 10 should have earned him an HC job by now.

Maybe some front offices are afraid he'll go hair-trigger profane on the press.

Yeah i was thinking the same thing too, I don't think Zimmer's really good with TV interviews or interviews in general. But that stuff doesn't really matter, its the work you do and how you perform your job.

I was much more worried about the Bengals retaining Coach Zimmer over Gruden. Zimmer would be much harder to replace, and after losing Sanu our offense went stagnant and Coach Gruden didn't have any answers.

So keeping my fingers crossed and praying Zimmer stays.

Agree and hope we promote him before we let him go somewhere else.

Every place he has interviewed with has Hired a HC now...

Zimmer is staying put. (unless jacksonville wants to talk to him or the eagles but both are looking for Offensive minded Coaches)

Now Hue is getting a lot of Attention and If Gruden lands a Job we might lose our backup OC too....

Which will make it interesting to see who replaces him.

Additionally Lovie Smith is still out of a Job I wonder if we lose hue if he would take a spot on the Defensive coaching staff so we can move zimmer up next year with his replacement already in tow (very wishful thinking i know)

Our defense put up more points than our offense in the past couple games. This might be a decent strategy, the way Huber kicks.

EDIT:
We can't let Tate return if we do this. I need to go test this out in Madden...

Absolutely the best thing that could have happened for this team, personally I believe all the recent success of the Bengals can be attributed directly to Zimmer, the job he has done with the defense despite the poor management and coaching all around him is nothing short of outstanding.

Actuay it would be attributed directly to one of the guys you are attempting to bash. .....Marvin Lewis who is the sole reason that Zimmer is here. See Zim has a great deal of respect for Marvin.

We need someone to protect us against losing Zimmer. That's why losing Coyle hurt..... And why adding Hue last offseason was smart.

I said it last year and I'll say it again.

Teams like young hot-shot up-and-coming types.

Mike Zimmer is 56 years old. He just seems like a career coordinator.

It's awesome for us, not so good for him.

Mike McCoy: 40 years old
Gus Bradley: 46
Chudzinski: 44

Hue doesnt help us if we lose zimmer but with Gruden getting interviews after 1 year it was a smart move.

Anyone Know what position Lovie used to coach.

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Why would Zim turn down a HC job now, for a HC job in the future (that's not even guaranteed)?

Lovie was a DC for St. Louis under Martz. I do believe he was a DC for Dungy in Tampa before that.

Regardless of who may be responsible for Zimmer being here he is the sole reason for the teams success, take away any other coach and the effects would be minimal, take away Zimmer and the effects would be devastating.

If Marvin is responsible for being here then kudos to him, doesn't make up for the fact that Marvin isn't a very good head coach

Mike Zimmer not getting a head coach job makes you wonder if we will move Marvin to GM and Zimmer to HC?

Please elaborate.
