Months after suffering a public emasculation, Jim Zorn was fired on what is commonly known around the NFL as Black Monday. And through no one would have blamed him if her weren’t, Zorn remained a good soldier to the very end.
Poor Jim Zorn, lost in NFL purgatory.
Not really a head coach, not really not-a-head-coach.
He’ll still get the blame with every Redskins loss, but he may have to share the victory when if the Redskins win.
The ownership in Washington has brought in former offensive coordinator Sherman Lewis (formerly of the Packers, Vikings and Lions), at first as special advisor, but now as offensive player-caller.
Perhaps it’s fitting that this is all happening in Washington, D.C. They’re used to lame duck presidents, how much different is it for a lame duck coach. But what is Redskins owner Dan Snyder trying to say? I still believe my coach can lead this team, I just don’t want him in a hands-on role.
And what is Snyder trying to do? This situation is way worse than a quarterback controversy, it’s a coaching controversy. Is Snyder gonna pull one of his coaches during the middle of a bad game? Or maybe he plans to switch them out and use one for certain situations like a coaching wildcat formation.
Either way, it’s flat out embarrassing and Snyder should just go ahead and fire Zorn already. And if Zorn had any self-respect he would take this insult as disrespect and just quit already.
However, with the economy the way it is, I think Zorn’s decision to take his lumps may be the best play he’s called all season.
A shocking revelation comes to the Sports Report Girl while taking one of her many cat naps.
