I'm taken back on this one but its clear Dan wasn't sold on bringing the old blood in here...maybe the public opinion made the difference..?
I really hope the decision wasn't influenced by public opinion.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Sources Confirm Jim Zorn Named Head Coach

Wow! This came wayyyyy out of left field, I didn't see this happening at all. I like the move though, everyone who's ever had any contact with him has expressed what a great man he is, and I think he'll be a good players coach, he'll be able to motivate them pretty good from what I've heard. We'll see if he's the right man for the job but I hope he is.

Seriously though, I have mixed feelings too. It's a gamble I'm not sure I would have taken. This is going to require patience which I don't know how much Snyder has and I know Redskins fans have very, very little

The guy is a pretty creative offensive mind, has been a pretty good QB as a player. He won't disappoint, I put him in the Garrett mold.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Sources Confirm Jim Zorn Named Head Coach

This has to be the quickest promotion from OC to Head Coach in the history of the NFL.......hope Jim got a huge pay raise.......seems Fassel or whoever was left said "FU Danny Boy.."....if I'm the coach, I pick the OC and DC...not you!......hope it all works...wonder if now Jim will higher a new OC or he will be the OC also.....can't wait for the news conference.....I can see Dannyboy getting jittery and defensive on this coaching process...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Multiple Sources Confirm Jim Zorn Named Head Coach

Hmm, speechless. So is Zorn going to be the head coach and offensive coordinator? Is he going to be calling plays?

How can you say this? What on his resume says "creative offensive mind"? So creative he's been stuck as a QB coach. This is the same as making Bill Lazor the HC. Love the optimism. I'm hoping it works out as well but it's hard to actually have any factual basis for the optimism.

Oh, and Garrett isn't a HC either.

Then we hire this Palermo guy to coach the D line just b/c he's Vinny's boy and ignore the fact he's never even had a cup of coffee in the NFL, then out of nowhere Zorn becomes HC??

We're a mess. No question. The rest of the league is laughing at us. I don't know if I've ever seen a coaching search handled more poorly than this. Now who's gonna be OC? Did Fassel just decide he doesn't want to be a part of this circus and tell day to go F himself?? As much as we wanted to think Snyder and Vinny were being thorough a deliberate, it's again becomes glaringly obvious these guys are in left field. Go ahead and bash me for being negative and impatient. Fine. Has Danny given ever given me a reason not to? This is bad. And Zorn may well end up being a good coach.Andy Reid was in the same kind of mold when he came to Philly. It's not so much the candidate that bothers me, it was the process. But Vinny and Danny are joke. A friggin joke.

Who's gonna be the OC????
