Hello, folks. Titans fan here. It seems the Mike Munchak experiment is coming to a bitter close in Nashville and most Titans fans are preparing for the inevitable coaching carousel of the offseason. What are your thoughts on the probability of Mike Zimmer being hired away as a head coach by another team this offseason, and do you think he'd make a good one?

Good luck in the AFCN, by the way. I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the Bengals (not to mention a passionate dislike of the Steelers and Ravens) so it's nice to see you guys having success.

Back away from The Zimm slowly, and find your coach elsewhere.

The job Zimmer has done in recent years has been outstanding in my view. Every unit has to cope with injuries, but the job he's done taking guys off the street and getting good play out of them has ben remarkable. He seems to have that knack of taking guys off the scrap heap, knowing how they'll fit into his scheme, and lighting the fire.

He's drafted well, and he seems to mould a top 10 defence each year from whoever he puts out there.

Is he HC material; difficult to say ? I just hope he's the next HC in Cincy.......

I don't worry about losing Zim anymore. He has been a top coordinator for his entire tenure and barely sniffed a coaching interview. I do hope that Marvin finally slips into that coma he has been hovering around for 11 years and Zim gets the job.

I heard he is a terrible interviewee. Brutally honest and a type A personality. Most owners and GMs want someone to kiss their [inappropriate/removed]. He won't do that so he probably wont be going anywhere.

If he's in those interviews droppin' all those f-bombs we saw on hard-knocks, then I'm not surprised he doesn't get a gig someplace.

From what Chris Mortensen reported about his interview with the Dolphins, he told them their team was crap and went through all of their personnel decisions the last few years and questioned them on it.

That sounds amazing. That would probably make me more likely to hire the guy.

I want Zimmer back in Dallas next year as HC. It sucks but a lot of people don't appreciate honesty. Why were you late real answer I was dragging my [inappropriate/removed] tired as heck, what most want to hear even though they know your lying to their face I had to rush my kid to the E.R. this morning everything is okay though.

I agree, I want someone who gets results. Doesn't try to sugar coat crap to make me happy. At the end of the day, I will take my CEO as an honest SOB than a sugar coating turd like Norv Turner.

If the Bengals lose Zimmer, they will not recover from it. Hes the heart and sole of this team IMO. Hes the reason that these players on the defense have developed into big names. But his contract is up after the year is over. I would think that he would want to return still if nobody wants him as a Head Coach next year.

As for the Titans, they don't need Zimmer. There defense is actually pretty good this year. The problems are on the offense. They gotta find an offensive minded head coach somewhere.

First guy that comes to my mind is John Gruden. Greg Roman and Adam Gase could make sense too.

Kevin Sumlim or David Shaw from college could work too.

Mike Brown is a Princeton alum. Surely he is smart enough to see that Zimmer is too important to let get away, no matter the ciost. Even if it means stepping away sooner than he wants to allow Marvin to go upstairs and promote Zimmer to HC. I'm not sure how much $$ it would take to keep Zimmeras a DC.

Marvin doesn't want to do that, and he's said that much. Those rumors come from the fans only.

To make Zimmer the HC, Marvin would have to be fired. And that's hard to justify when the team is probably going to the playoffs for the third straight year.
