ArmyBengal Posted June 17, 2009 Report Share Posted June 17, 2009 Ok, I posted the whole article in another thread, but would like to take a snip of that article to discuss here.http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/big-...7c-492b59783b73This is the part of the article I thought applied.While the pundits should be asking why they never put Zimmer on their short lists of head coaching candidates (productive units, a Bill Parcells pedigree, a tough, demanding bedside manner), the Bengals are trying to get on the short list of defensive rankings. As in the top 10 after jumping from 27 to 12 last year.While I don't think it's their intention to say Marvin is on his way out and they have his replacement if that was the case, it at least has to make you think the DO in fact have his replacement when the time comes. I honestly don't think Marvin is on the hotseat, as I think Mike Brown will let him have at least until his contract is up to figure out if he can get Marvin's type of guys to progress quickly.I think if the team does well and progresses, Marvin stay beyond his current contract and in time Zimmer gets a head coaching spot. If they fail, I could see the possibility of Zimmer stepping in to replace Marvin.If nothing else, I figured it was actual Bengal conversation during the offseason, so I'm trying to help here !!!
