Forgive me but I think I will wait until something is official. There was a big bunch of bad information from more reliable sources than a message board rumor.

I heard it from Dan graham @coltsinsider pretty good source. Been right a lot.

I hope its true. I would love to have Zim as our coach. IMO Tressel don't seem like a Grigson kind of guy. By all appearances Grigson seems like an intense individual much like Zimmer. Tressel on the other hand don't seem very intense at all. I still think Tressel would do ok but I just like Zimmer a lot more.

People make too big of a deal about the coach's emotional output on the sidelines....it is perfectly possible to be a great coach and not be "intense" or "firery"...the problem i had with Caldwell was his coaching ability, not his attitude.

Sorry to get off topic, but chip Kelly finalizing deal to become Tampa new coach. According to Portland Oregon news station.

Hope this is true. We need a fiery leader for this team and Zimmer is just that. Plus it has been long overdue to fix and make this defense respectable. I can see many postseason appearances with Andrew Luck as our QB and Zimmer running a top 10 defense.

For the record, my use of the word "intense" was based purely on the fact that Grigson seems very intense and Zimmers personality is a closer match than Tressels. I don't put much stock in a coaches sideline demeanor, but Zimmer just seems like a Grigson kind of guy. Thats purely my opinion and may not be right but just the way I feel.

For every fiery Jim Harbaugh, there is a fiery Todd Haley. The difference is one is a great HC and the other is a bad HC. Every coach I ever had was somewhat fiery and most of them were somewhat dumb, too.

Hope this is true, because I believe besides the Colts, Tampa is the only other team in the running for Zimmer.

maybe if zimmer comes he bring Robert Mathis back. I believe Tampa is only other team chasing him. We better hurry up though, because I don't want bengals locking zimmer up with a contract extension.

i wasnt really talking about what you said, so much as everyone that says they dont want Tressel based on HIS demeanor etc.

that pretty much opens up zimmer with colts or he is staying with Cincy. I have heard no interest of him with Oakland

I wonder if Tressel was actually being interviewed for a coordinator position. I could actually live with him working under ZImmer.

Like someone else stated a couple days ago. (I think it might have been chad72) said Zimmer as HC, Clyde as OC, and Tressel as OC assistant.

I'd be totally fine with that.

I'd be totally fine with that. Tressel is more of a defensive coach. I could see staff like this, zimmer as hc, tressel as dc, and Ken zampese as oc. Zampese was qb coach with Cincy. Developed dalton pretty well.

I don't think he is. I think is more offensive IIRC.

That is not how it works. If the Colts want Zimmer and he wants them, nothing the Bengals do with a contract extension offer will matter.

    • With 100-plus players, coaches and support staff in a locker room in July and August, I don’t see how the NFL survives the season.  And I hope I’m wrong.   But I AGREE with you that the NBA and MLB are completely different.  But since both have dramatically fewer players and coaches, etc,  I think the NFL has a much more difficult  hurdle to clear.   I think the odds for football have to be much more difficult than those for MLB and the NBA.   Please let me be wrong.  Nothing would make me happier. 
    • It'll be interesting to watch, but IMO, the NBA and MLB are different animals. NBA will be playing in a bubble, and MLB is a lot less contact. Heck, you could actually play baseball with a face mask lol. I could see both fairing pretty well, which may or may not be indicative of what we'll see with the NFL.    All I know is all the players (NFL, MLB, and NBA) should be bubble wrapping themselves given the money they stand to make/loose. I know most of the players are itching to play, so just hope they're disciplined enough to make good choices.
    • The value is pretty incredible. Would anyone really be shocked if Cam started and did well? Nope.   I think Bill Belichick got tired of hearing all the Brady/TB chatter, and said.... "OK guys, watch this" lol.    I'll be hoping that both TB and NE have horrible seasons lol   Strange times.
    • Looks like they are now undergoing a review of the Redskins name.  A change seems likely due to the pressure from Fedex, NFL and public at large. They were the Boston Braves before they came to D.C.  So maybe just call them the Washington Braves or Washington Warriors if “Braves” is still deemed to be too insensitive.  FWIW, the Cleveland Indians are also considering a name change.  
    • I wouldn’t bet too much.   Our regular season starts in September, by that time MLB will have - in theory - been playing for about 5 weeks.   Roughly the same as basketball.   If those two leagues are forced to shutdown, the NFL won’t wait for trouble to happen.  The NFL will quickly join them and shutdown as well.     We will all know more in August.
