    Zimmer is the guy i think will attract more interest
    Gruden has come back a bit in my estimation, the offense there looked very ordinary at times

    Zimmer deserves a chance at the HC gig... I think he'd be a fantastic hire for the Bucs, or Texans if Bill O'Brian thing falls through. Or detroit actually, he'd suit them well

    Ray Horton will surely be in demand as an OC, if the new browns coach elects to let him go. Ive got a big wrap on Ray Horton, he'll be a good HC in a few years time. Id love to get him on the eagles defensive staff, even at the expense of Bill Davis

    If Zimmer went to Detroit I reckon he would get them to the Super Bowl. That defensive side of the ball is too talented to not be dominating every game.

    Gruden on the other hand at times shows he thinks he is still coaching an arena league team with his offensive calls. I pray someone takes him off our hands.

    he'd need to find some DB's but yeah, they'd be a pretty impressive D with Zimmer. He's the type of hard nose disciplined coach that would be good for them

    Look at the DBs the bengals have. A mix of low cost veterans who were on the street before Zimmer got them and some young talent that hasn't done as well as they should. Yet he still gets them working. I think the defensive line at Detroit is better than the bengals, only slightly but has a bigger upside if you get them focused. Zimmer will just grab some low vets to fill in the blanks in defense.

    Probably the only issue at Detroit is that you have too much money going to too few players. You are relying so much on drafting well to keep the costs down.

    Lovie Smith arrived in back in Tampa today. Great signing IMO. At least the Glazers didn't f**k ass around like they did 2 years ago trying to sign a coach and miss out on their #1 choice (Chip Kelly)

    I agree.

    L. Smith at the Bucs is an astute move.

    TB will reap the rewards next season.

    Very smart coach..... and a ell' of a nice guy!

    Skins hire Jay Gruden

    call me crazy, but i am not worried about this hire at all as a eagles fan. Im was a fan of Jay, but Dalton has not made the jumped expected, that offense is really really stetchy at times... and then i read about how he was the one who pulled for Dalton and won that battle over the owner Mike Brown, who wanted... Colin Kaepernick

    the reason he liked Dalton? He can run the WCO and he didnt buy into the read option... ive soured on him since that. :lol:

    Suck it skins

    Yeah, as a Bengals fan, having Hue Jackson move into the OC role is a breath of fresh air. He will use a run game and not have Dalton throw as much as he has (which really you don't want to have to rely on Dalton's arm to win games, make the defence load up the box more so he has more favourable matchups).

    Feel sorry for Skins fans. Enjoy that Arena league football offense.
