Default Re: Hue Jackson to be new RB coach

Does anybody know anything about the circumstances of JA's retirement? Was it anything more than just being ready to hang it up? Can't help being curious about that.

He's turning 65. I'd say it's about time.
What a solid career.
Who Dey!

I wouldn't be shocked if Hue was offered the same/similar position down in Dallas or elsewhere, came back to Marv & said "Hey, here's what's up..." Hue is Marv's guy, so that would certainly make sense. We'll probably never know. By the way, NBC is now also reporting on Hue's new job title: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...in-cincinnati/

What makes you think that??

In Washington, Steven Davis was a big back. I really can't remember any of the backs that he coached in college. But, in the pros, he's worked with big backs, not only in Washington, but in Oakland as well.

From the premier prospects in this draft, I'd say that Eddie Lacy is more Hue's style. But, you never know.

Good news for sure. Glad to hear it. Hope he can be influence on upgrading our RBs to go with BJGE as in bringing in two new guys. Peerman should stay for special teams, but Leonard doesn't deserve an automatic spot on the roster next year. He isn't worth the spot to be a 3rd down pass blocker while being a non-factor in TDs and yards as a RB.

Hey, look. A Brit teasing a 'yank for adding 'u' to a word. How colourful.

All kidding aside, good news all around. Have a good retirement Coach Anderson!

The chances of trading for Run DMC just tripled IMO

It was at a 1% chance but now i'd give it a firm 3%

I stand corrected, Barry Sanders. Should always google a name before guessing.

I think the Bengals in general have always gone with the bigger back. This is the AFC North. Marv still seems to think it is 1975, too, and I think Lacy could be the guy. Bigger, stronger, tougher...that is what they love. My only concern with Lacy is he gets fat and lazy with a contract, but I think Hue would be the right guy to prevent that.

The upcoming combine should be interesting. People will say Lacy isn't a great talent because he doesn't run a sub 4.5 forty, but I can't imagine too many folks at the second level wanting to take on this bull regardless of his forty time. He didn't have that many opportunities, but he did look to be a solid set of hands out of the backfield. They could draft a bscott clone later to be a home run threat and maybe even come out with the two of them in the backfield together. I also like Hawkins in this role.

I'm not saying they will take Lacy at #21, but if he is there at the top of round 2?????

Maybe we have always gone with the big back because that's what JA wanted? I want Gio we already have our bull in BJGE. The threat to break a huge run or haul in a deep pass, Gio will add a nice few pages to the playbook, and I'm all for opening it up!

Marvin wants that "change of pace" back.....meaning if they do draft one, they'll look for a speed back.

BTW, grats to JA for turning 65 and retiring. Also, congrats to HJ on his promotion. Something tells me its going to be a long, hard slog for him to get back into a HC or even an OC slot given how he crafted the Carson trade. Owners or GMs would view that as a huge negative on his resume.

Seriously, though. I thought dude should have been fired for the way the offense crapped out at the end of the season, and his abandonment of the run, and AJ Green in the first of the playoffs game. What was that ish?

I know the Bengals front office does trust Hue a great deal. This might be a tip of the cap that our Bengals are going to go RB in round 1 or 2. Bengals love to give their position coaches new toys. My point is I think they will trust Hue to mold the RB pick or picks into a productive pro players.

Although I know it wouldn't happen I would love that also make Marvin GM and promote Zimmer to HC then find a DC or just have Zim call defensive plays... A man can dream...

Seems to be an echo in the Jungle.

This opinion gets more reverberation than a fart off a wooden school desk chair.

Believe everybody will get their wish and Gruden will depart after next years successful season though.

Unfortunately Zimmer will almost certainly leave as well.

I'm one of those who believe he did. They said leading up to it if we were going to win it was going to be because another receiver stepped up. Well no other receiver did. They also said last year that we went to AJ too much forcing it to him and was to dependent on him. Ignoring him seemed to be by design, hoping Gresham, Jones and or Hawk would step up and make a name for themselves as many stars are born in playoff runs.

My issue with Gruden is the offense fell apart weeks before the playoffs. And the schizophrenia playcalling that would cause him to forget to run the ball/ stick with a script/ call plays with purpose that led to future plays (play actions) etc.... He was all over the place at times with no method to his madness.
