    Zimmer must be signed tomorrow

    Or he will leave Minnesota to become the Lions head coach

    Just a gut feeling

    I don't think he has even been linked to Detroit. I might be wrong on that, but every indication is that the Lions are zeroing in on Jim Caldwell which is fine by me. I would rather face a Caldwell led team twice a year that a Whisenhunt led team.

    If Zimmer leaves without being signed, I believe Minnesota is looking at someone else instead.

    I caught a few minutes of the sports talk show with McCunky on Fox sports last night. Matt Leinhart was on there and they asked him about the Whisenhunt hire. He kinda knifed Whisenhunt I thought.

    If Zimmer is signed by Detroit I would be happy to see Whisenhunt as our head coach. I think he did a great job with the Cardinals and he is an offensive guru, something we desperately need. Maybe we could develop a QB if we draft one, instead of watching him die on the vine.

    Ken's record:

    2007-8-8
    2008-9-7
    2009-10-6
    2010-5-11
    2011-8-8
    2012-5-11

    I do not, I am not really impressed with his record, sure, he got the Cardinals to the Superbowl but that was all Kurt Warner, do you think the Cardinals would have made the Superbowl if Matt Leinhart was starting? I doubt it

    Do you really think the Packers would have made it to the super bowl without Rodgers? The Saints without Brees? The Colts without Manning? That analogy isn't really a good one, any time a team goes to the Super bowl there is a good chance it is because of the QB play. Look at the two opponents last year, do you think the Ravens would have made it without Flacco, he was outstanding in the playoffs, what about the Niners and Kaepernick? This is a QB driven league now and you need a franchise QB to win a super bowl or at least play like one in the playoffs (Flacco) IMO!
