Well now that we are headcoach-less, I wanted to see who everybody thought should be his replacement.

There are obviously some great coaches out there. Marty Schottenheimer, **** Vermeil, Jeff Cowher, Tuna. Now I know some of those coaches are supposedly "retired" but based on my knowledge that does not mean too much in the world of sports.

Any thoughts?

Some Coordinators that could be candidates are:

Jim Schwartz (Titans DC)

Josh McDaniels (Patriots OC)

Jason Garrett (Cowboys OC)

Mike Singletary (49ers Assistant HC/defense)

Hue Jackson (Falcons OC)

Russ Grimm (Cardinals OC)

Jim Haslett (Rams DC)

Gregg Williams (Redskins Assistant HC/defense)

And BTW it's Bill Cowher

I would have no problem making our current DC & interim HC, Mike Zimmer, our future HC. We don't need to chance schemes again, and I would like to see Zimmer step up for HC, and allow Hue Jackson to step up to OC and playcalling duties.

He has 3 games to show us what he's got.

I am not looking for him to come in and win the next 3 games for us, if that is what you mean. I would like to see how the players respond to him, but Zimmer going 0-3 shouldn't count him out of the job, and to be honest neither should 3-0. We need someone who can come in and lead this team for atleast 5 years.

I'm surprised you didn't put Rex Ryan.

while I agree Zim should get a lok he has a very good resume with top notch D year after year and coming from a winning program and he also gets my vote if we go with a coord. but he is not the interim

So, you guys dont think that Marty Schottenheimer would be an option? Personally I would LOVE to have him as our coach.

I want Cowher or Marty. NO MORE "hotshort" coordinators or "genius" college coaches. I want a legit NFL head coach who would command respect from the players AND ALSO give them respect back in turn. I've never heard of a player who didn't like playing under those two.

"Bad move. He isn't the best guy for the job. Ask any Steeler fan. He isn't ready."

I don't know about Steelers fans, but I do know that by all accounts, Grimm was a stronger consideration for the job than Whisenhunt was...and Whisenhunt has been a fine head coach at Arizona thus far.

What Grimm has done with the line out there is world class in a very short period of time, too.

I'm with you. I understand giving young coaches a chance, but we need an immediate impact, and I think the only way we get that is with a proven head coach.

this franchise is pretty much at rock bottom. i dont know that anyone will come in and make an immediate impact. while the team does have some very good players, the next staff will want to build with their players, and it will take time. as a side question, will vick still count against next seasons cap numbers?

Yeah I'm really happy to see Coach Thomas get the nod.

Dumb move by Atlanta in that he has been demoted over time after being D coordinator in Minnesota but maybe shrewd in that it doesn't show favoritism to either Zimmer or Jackson. I hope Thomas is not a serious contender for HC next year.

What you don't understand is that Coach Thomas has been on this staff since 02 and has served inder three different Head Coaches here.

Coach Thomas has the respect of every member of this organization and they will fight for him.

I wouldn't mind seeing hime be named the HC because we need to keep this ship as stable as possible.
