and hopefully this offense will get great gas mileage too,and not be too bogged down like it has been.

I agree, and to piggy-back just a little on your concept, I'm sure during the course of the interview process, various things were discussed.

Jim Zorn is well aware of Jason Campbell's strengths' as well as his weaknesses, and feel he can work comfortably with him in whatever area of his game that needs atention to bring about his desired result. If he didn't think he could work succsssfully with Jason, I don't think he would have taken the job. There are various versions of the WCO that can benefit from Jason's big arm as well.

WOW...

I think someone is confusing Campbell with Romo, or Pacman Jones.

Re: Jim Zorn will be great!!

Right now the limiting factor is Campbell. He is so slow with the ball I hope its not a problem with this new offense.

Saunders would have added a modern touch to the offense but Gibbs wouldnt let him because he was stuck in an 80s style O that was too run focused.

AS's O is complex but not dated. Its Gibbs who was dated by wanting to run first and pass second. The NFL is now a pass first run second league but Gibbs was too conservative to let AS do his thing and modernize the O. Actually, Giibbs himself said he needed to modernize the O which is why AS came here in the first place. Too bad Gibbs wouldnt let him.

Re: Jim Zorn will be great!!

The funny thing is our highest offensive ranking under Gibbs this time around was when he was calling the shots in 2005 (11th overall). IMO we would have been better off if Gibbs just stuck with running the offense himself.

Maybe. Remember in 06 Portis was hurt and in 07 the line was injury riddled, IMO that does not provide the formula for a successful run first O. I think in the end even had Gibbs turned AS loose the Skins just didnt have the talent at QB to really make the system work.

It also helps that he was a quarterback before in this league.
What makes you think he'll be great? He hasn't even called plays for an NFL team yet. No NFL coordinator experience. Let him learn somewhere else. I don't like the the hire at all. But I'm going to assume that if Fassel or Mooch gets the job then they will call the plays, not Zorn.

No doubt. That was his M.O., he was a master at putting together an offensive scheme (but I can't overlook how the injury bug just seemed to kill us every year, we are due for that bug to get outta DC). I was very disappointed when he brought in Al to take over what I thought was his strongest asset in football. Of course I'm not taking away from any of Joe's other strengths as he has many.

Re: Jim Zorn will be great!!

The whole reason Dan is bringing Zorn in is to develope JC. I'm still not sold on how good of an OC he will be, but I did think it was time for Al to go. His sytem has worked great for other teams he has coached, but not so well in Washington. I think he tried to hard to adapt Jason to the sytem and not a system that fit his players.
Sure hope the westcoast O works for us, need to find a big and strong reciever to go with S.Moss and El and I hope it is Randy Moss who Danny Boy and his fluncky Vinny C. can get.

Re: Jim Zorn will be great!!

I'm optimistic too. After all, it's the postseason. But doesn't a rookie offensive coordinator favor Fassel or Mariucci as a head coach, rather than Meeks, Schwartz, et al.?

Well I do think we have an upgrade from Lazor to Zorn. But it's really too bad how they are treating Lazor. He did a solid job with JC last year and to leave him hanging is not very professional. Snyder and Vinny suck.

Everything is pointing to Mooch. He has ties to Dan's butt buddy Vinny, he has worked with Blache in the past and he and Zorn both worked with Mike H.

Re: Jim Zorn will be great!!

Here are a couple of good reason why I think Redskins fans should stop complaining about Jim Zorn.

1) Jim Zorn is a proven coach that will bring out the best in Jason Campbell
2) Jason Campbell was good in a west coast type offense in college football(And yes Zorn is bringing his own version of the west coast offense)
3) His play book is not 700 + pages long

Thanks for the correction angryssg(I need to learn to proof read what I write)

LMFAO! It is yet to be seen whether that is a pro or a con. I assume that you believe it to be a pro, and I agree to a point. The versatility that the 700 page playbook offered to a Veteran QB is immense. I agree that it might have been overwhelming to a youg QB like Campbell.

On a side note, where is the Steelers Playbook from Rothlisberger's rookie year? That is the one I want.
