    I can't believe it, Danny! LOL!

    Huizinga and Spielman must have more sense than that!

    That would be a possibility I'd like to see as well.

    Something new on defense without having to completely revamp the entire scheme.

    But Zim seems to be one of Big Bill's boys, will he replace him or just order him to make some changes?

    It'll be intereting to see how Bates does in his interim role. Was he ever considered for the head coach position when Campo was hired, or was it initially narrowed down to Campo, Avezzano and Houck? Can't recall if Bates had already left for Miami or not.

    Me too. I don't think it happens though. I figure he'll take the rest of the year off.

    Zim got a 2 year deal I think.

    I'd be willing to chip in and cover the bill to get him outta here.

    It's too bad DW's head coaching career hasn't panned out so far. I always liked him as a coach, and you can list me as another who wouldn't mind seeing him back here working with our defense.

    Remember when they announced him taking the Bears job during the postgame interviews after Super Bowl 27? I didn't want to lose him then after finally getting back on top, but I was happy for him.

    Gonna have to start my own movement if I keep hearing you guys saying you want Wandstedt to come back to Dallas. Sorry, no need for an idiot coach like Dave. He made a name for himself back in the early 90's, but we had great talent too.
