    Rod Woodson is a big name but I don’t see him as a viable candidate. Did you see how badly the Raiders secondary was this year? 26th in the league against the pass. Yes I know they lost their best corner, but still I don’t know if Woodson is the guy for the job. But they’re the Bengals for a reason, so it also wouldn’t surprise me if he’s coaching the DB’s next fall.

      Good points Seubs. I’m not saying I’m rooting for it..just reading the tea leaves. I know that Marvin Lewis has called Woodson the best defensive back he’s ever seen, and I know that Woodson loves Lewis as a coach. Woodson has worked as an intern on Lewis’ staff, so I think that also factors in.

      Regarding the Oakland defense, I agree that 26th is not good, even without their best corner. That said, I have two words that might help explain it beyond Woodson: Chuck Breshnahan.

      he was the D-coordinator last year under Hue Jackson. I don’t think we ever did better than the 20’s when he was here either.

      Either way, I’m not rooting for or against–just speculatin’

        Certainly understand that Chuck B certainly didn’t help Woodson’s cause. Who knows maybe he’s a great coach and may wind up on the Bengals staff. I’m just thankful Zimmer is back in the fold for another year.

    So far the offseason has been a huge win. Having both coordinators returning is a huge advantage and somewhat unexpected. Hopefully the momentum continues all the way through free agency and the draft.
