OK, this whole Jim Zorn experiment thing was doomed from day 1. First of all, new coordinators should NEVER of been hired before a head coach was named. Zorn was brought in to be an offensive coordinator, and that is a job I think he could of handled. This mistake was made when he was named head coach for a proud franchise with impatience fans and even more impatient ownership. He was set up to fail, please realize that.
Jim Zorn went from QB Coach of the Seahawks in 2007, to head coach of the Redskins in 2008, and he finished 8-8. That is not that bad folks. If you are going to take a leap of faith with a guy like Zorn, you need to give him 3 full years before you decide on his progress. That is only fair. Zorn has too much on his plate. He is not a very good game manager and he is tied up in coaching QB's and trying to call plays. He was dooooooomed before he even called the Redskins "maroon and black"at his opening press conference. That comment in itself says a lot about Jim Zorn. I think he is somewhat of a space cadet.....
Ok, so if somehow Zorn makes it out of the season, I still don't think he makes it back for the 2010 season. The offensive line will prevent this team from making a playoff run of any sorts. So for next year, Synder is sure to make a big splash and hire one of the big name "free agent" coaches out there and it looks like Jon Gruden is on the top of his list. Gruden could light a fire under this team and he is a super bowl winning coach, so thats a plus. But unless player personnel decisions are made from a different brain trust, nothing in the town will change. The Redskins need to remove Vinny C from any personnel desicions and hire a proven football guy. What about Mike Holmgren?
It just so happens that Holmgren and Gruden share the same agent, so that may make it easier to work. I think Holmgren could make solid football decisions and Gruden could win in DC. The Redskins would need to trim fat, stockpile draft picks, become younger, and build for 2012. That is the smart thing to do.
Too bad Daniel Snyder is a little money grubbing punk, who will keep running the team into mediocrity until someone punches that smarmy little look off his face. Until that day, hold out hope that Stephon Heyer and the rest of the clowns on the OL can step of their game.
Hail the Redskins.
