Falcons | Zimmer grateful for new opportunity
Randy Galloway, of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports Atlanta Falcons new defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer is grateful for the fresh start he will receive in Atlanta after an unsuccessful attempt to adjust to a 3-4 alignment as defensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys last season. "The fans were down on me -- some of the stuff they were yelling hit home -- and I was more down on myself than they were," Zimmer said of Cowboys' fans. "I couldn't get it right. I was failing as the defensive coordinator. That wasn't easy to take. (Now), I'm here in Atlanta, having to re-learn the 4-3. I'm thankful for my 13 years with the Cowboys, thankful for a lot of friends I made, but now I'm eager to tackle this new challenge."
