    All I know is that his players on the Bengals are very bittersweet about this. His players love him, and most say that he is the best defensive coach they have ever played for.

    Here is a link to the Bengals free agents. Their fans are worried that some of these guys will follow Zimmer to Minnesota. Check it out. I like Crocker at S to go along with Smith. Plus any players he brings in will help transition his defense to our players.

    This from ESPN, it says that Zimmer is potentially looking at Mike Mularkey and Kyle Shanahan as OC. Please say no to Kyle Shanahan.

    Oh god I hope not Shanahan.

    From what I've heard the frontrunners are Turner and Scott Linehan.

    Papa Bear Halas refused to allow Ditka to fire Buddy Ryan and bring in his own guy. How did that work out
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    I totally did not expect Spielman to go with a guy that might have the balls to disagree with him from time to time. From everything I've been reading and hearing about the guy, I'm a fan of this hire.

    I am a fan too, but from Spielmans point, if shit goes wrong, he can say that
    "it was the coaches decision", and it takes his own ass out of the fire. Just my 2 cents.
