I didn't want to put this in the current Bengals discussion thread as I am personally enjoying the playoff scenario/Steelers week talk and didn't want to derail that conversation, so here it is...

While watching First Take over my lunch hour today, a thought crossed my mind.

Fast forward two months....

1) It seems likely that this will be the year for Mike Zimmer to land a head coaching job somewhere as he has flirted with it the past two off seasons and 2) It seems highly likely that Rex Ryan will be fired as head coach of the Jets.

Rex Ryan is one of the best defensive minds in the history of the game. It is highly unlikely he will land another head coaching job in the near future. He and Marvin have a prior connection. There is a lot of talent to work with in Cincinnati.

A lot of "what ifs" in play here, I know....it's purely hypothetical. But should everything work out as I have layed out would Ryan in Cincinnati work and would you have interest in this scenario?
