Hearing this repeatedly from black assistants this morning: nepotism of the Gruden hire shows why so hard for blacks to get jobs.

Maybe if Marvin Lewis has a brother....or Rahim Morris, or Hue Jackson, or Leslie Frazier, or Romeo Crennel, or Lovie Smith...or the assistants can actually STFU and stop crying.

So as a result of the Gruden hire, Hue Jackson gets promoted to OC with the Bengals and yet people are still crying? When Lovie went and brought in Frazier as his DC, was anyone calling it nepotism then? Give me a break.

Bengals DC Mike Zimmer has reportedly emerged as the favorite for the Vikings' head-coaching vacancy.

Marvin Lewis could be losing both his coordinators, as Jay Gruden was hired by the Redskins Thursday. The abrasive and fiery Zimmer's style would be in stark contrast to mild-mannered, player-friendly coach Leslie Frazier. It's a bit surprising the Vikings wouldn't favor an offensive mind, but Zimmer would make a fine choice. He's been the Bengals' defensive coordinator since 2008, consistently getting the most out of UDFA's and leading his unit to a No. 3 ranking this year despite season-ending injuries to Geno Atkins and Leon Hall.

Lol wut? Gruden is the reason imo they've had a top 10 offense since he's been there. I honestly feel this is a great hire for the Skins.

Raheem Morris and Romeo Crennel both don't have a jobs. Hue Jackson was an Offensive Coordinator who went from being the head coach of the Raiders to a Secondary Coach/Assistant Special Teams Coach for Cincinnati. Andy Reid was hired right away off of a 4-12 season. Lovie Smith was fired after a 10-6 season and didn't coach for a year.

The reason they have a top 10 offensive is they have a good QB and one of the best WRs in the game. It is why they were 18th in rushing yards and 8th in passing yards.

And developed 33 total points in 3 playoff losses.

True that but I don't put it all on gruden. Not sure how marvin runs the show but the HC deserves more blame imo. Gruden isn't perfect but I feel he has a great offensive mind and will help rg3 exponentially.

Top 10 this year, but ranked in the 20's in both 2011 and 2012.

The game plan for last year's playoff game seemingly forgot to include AJ Green...the game plan for the loss to the Chargers is also in question as they became one dimensional in the second half BEFORE they got too far behind. They ended up throwing the ball 50+ times while they had 25 runs plays . And the Chargers claim that the Bengals did everything they prepared for, and added in no new wrinkles.

They have had jobs in the past and failed is the point. If they have had success and a competant bro in the coaching ranks it would have been nepotism too. They are trying to spin it like there's something racial.
