Colt could use an attitude adjustment maybe, but IMO this makes Zorn out to be a liar. Remember how he said he had "big plans" for Colt, praising his work ethic, and saying he hoped he would challenge TC15 for the backup job??

Yeah not exactly breaking news, we heard about this a few weeks back.

I don't think it says Zorn is a liar, it just says cutting Colt wasn't his say, so after the fact he had to spin things in a positive light is all. Coaches "lie" all the time expect we call it coach speak.

Zorn was clueless, I really don't put any credibility in anything he did or said. A guy who was aiding seniors and was out of the league walked off the street and made Zorn's offense look grade school in comparison.

what? if he wanted to there was a completely perfect opportunity for him to do so...injury and poor preformance by a 3rd string QB, perfect reason to get rid of Colt. And Chase was brought in and played well, so why didnt he cut him and stay with Chase? Im really not buying it

[B]Ex-Redskins coach Jim Zorn reportedly wanted to cut QB Colt Brennan before the 2009 season started.
Brennan had a miserable 2009, playing poorly in three straight preseason games before landing on injured reserve with a torn labrum in his hip. He's also turned off some members of the organization with a cocky attitude (despite his lack of NFL success). Brennan isn't the quarterback of the future, and he may not make the team in [/B]

I don't think Zorn had much weight when it came to making decisions, even in the beginning. If Vinny said he had to keep him, he was the type of person to publicly make the most of it and try to stay positive.

Zorn may have in over his head as a coach and was put in a terrible situation with Vinny & Co. running things, but I'm sure he knows QBs. And I would say that if you're a rook with an attitude and you're playing poorly, you should be cut.

Zorn definitely wasn't calling the shots in regard to personnel, his hands were tied by Vinny.

In the end though who cares? It's officially the start of the 2010 season today, so let's just bury the Zorn/Vinny era. It's over.

Wow! A coach who is no longer here wanted to cut a 3rd string QB who won't be here much longer. Big news!!!

Re: Zorn wanted to cut Brennan prior to 09 season - report
 
So there aren't any specifics of when exactly before the 2009 season he wanted to cut him?
Or maybe there is:

[QUOTE]But Zorn expected Brennan to challenge Todd Collins for the backup job in the 2009 preseason, and that didn't happen because Brennan struggled. Also, some in the organization grew frustrated with Brennan because of what they perceived to be his cockiness despite never having accomplished anything in the NFL, team sources said.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE]Zorn, however, determined that Brennan did not progress enough from his rookie season to commit a roster spot to him. Although Zorn was fired after going 12-20 in two seasons and often seemed to be in way over his head, his credentials as a quarterbacks coach are unquestioned.[/QUOTE]
So it sounds like he wanted Chase or something.

So I suggest next time to check your biases before engaging in potential libel.

Yo, dude.

I'm not bashing Zorn, nor was i being biased. I was just saying that after Brennan's injury and everything, Zorn still said good things about him bla blah, how he would have a role with the team, etc....

Re: Zorn wanted to cut Brennan prior to 09 season - report
 
Colt has been discussed a bit in the last thread bearing his name. Who really cares what Zorn thought? His thinking is the reason he's no longer here.

Staff (especially Zorn) almost always talk up their players to the press, whether they mean it or not.

An interesting exception was Allen's presser yesterday, in which he said of the guys being cut, "Many were good Redskins players." Which means some were not, in his estimation. He didn't name names but that is about as critical as you'll see from a FO person.
