Adam Zimmer & Andre Patterson Named Co-Defensive Coordinators (pg.5)

Recommended Posts

Patterson showed up four years after Griffen was drafted, so he can't be given all the credit for that one, but he's certainly one of the best teachers of defensive lineman in the game.

I thought Griffen didn't show much until Patterson became DL coach?

iirc, Griffen was a part-time player who's technique and play measurably improved when Patterson took over.

Well he was a rotational pass rusher, who we yelled for a couple years to be starting behind Allen and Robison. Also basically was playing a fair amount of 3T on pass rushing downs.

I don’t think it was Patterson as much as it was timing. Griffen was an ascending player that everyone was expecting to be a starter in 2014 after Jared Allen left. Patterson just happened to get hired the same year.

He'd probably help the offense more as much as the defense since he spent so much time trying to stop McCarthy's offense

And she mentions further than potentially Andre Patterson could be promoted as well to a role similar to what Kubiak had last season (which would mean that Robert Rodriguez would likely be promoted to D-Line coach).

As long as Patterson is still around with the team in some regard, I'm good with whatever.

If it were going to happen it likely would have by now, but I’d still love to see Marvin Lewis as the DC.

I thought he was Herms staff at Arizona State?

I don’t think being a “special advisor” would stop him from taking a coaching job in the NFL, if it were offered.

Zim finally giving up defensive calling duties to his son ... Honestly that sounds bad.

I wonder if Edwards realized he had reached his ceiling in this organization.

Why does that sound bad? 

Adam Zimmer has been learning from one of the best for his entire life. Seems like as good of a move as any for a coach without previous experience.

Has it been confirmed this is what’s happening?
