    Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer joined Galloway and Company on KESN-FM 103.3 to talk about the Cowboys. Here are some highlights.

    On Tony Romo:
    “When he was a young guy, I remember him staying out at practice and throwing the ball into the net at the targets for hours and hours and doing all of those things. I remember all the positives that have gotten him to that point. When I watch him play now, I’m still a Tony Romo fan. I get to game plan against quarterbacks every single week in the NFL, and the people in Dallas need to understand that this guy is as talented of a guy as there is and he can do everything they want him to do. If something goes bad, they’re going to get on you but sometimes, the grass isn’t always greener with the next guy you bring in. I think Romo is a terrific quarterback. He does things that no other quarterback in the NFL can do.”

    On Dez Bryant:
    “He really reminds me in a lot of ways of Michael Irvin. The way he can go get the football, his acceleration, his run after catch, his strength, you know Michael was great. He used to push guys off. Dez seems like he has great strength when running routes in press. He’s made some unbelievable catches on back shoulder fades that (Tony) Romo has thrown to him. In the Redskins game, he caught that ball and ran about 65 yards. He turned on the jets on that one. I think he’s a tremendous football player. They have a lot of talent there.”

    Coach Zimmer is a class act! Miss that guy at Valley Ranch, his 4-3 defense is one of the VERY best.

    Always liked Zimmer. One of the few who still did at the end, I believe.

    sounds like zim thinks dez is a bit more than a possession receiver

    Only thing bad about that would be I can see Jerry bringing back Campo as the DC.

    Actually, Campo's defense was #1 with no Pro Bowlers. Zimmer took over and allowed 3 200+ rushers in a single season. Campo had to step in and co-coordinate the next year. Then Zimmer left the organization. He was never all that.

    I remember. That's why I joined on here as Zimmy Lives. The guy knows how to coach defense and he made some pretty average guys play solid football as a unit.

    How did Zim's wife pass away? Was it a heart-attack or stroke? He was up and down as a coordinator here, but always a classy guy that the players ostensibly respected.
