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

Hey ... here's a solution to you guys bashing the hire...

Bring in Mariucci as OC... he can show Zorn the ropes... they both know the West Coast Offense... from Walsh/Holmgren... there you go

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

well this is my first time..here goes,Jim Zorn is a hell of a hire.smart,sensible,and excitement is what he will bring...there is a concern about the experience at play calling but ,remember he called plays for years behind center..

OC showing the HC the ropes. The fact that that would even be necessary defies belief.

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

hey... just an idea... Mariucci said he wants to get back coaching... no HC jobs open... they have the same offensive philosophy

Only problem is ... I don't think Snyder was impressed with him...

Oh, and Garrett isn't a HC either.
I don't know that Zorn is ready to be a head coach, but his title of QB Coach wasn't entirely accurate in Seattle as he was very involved in the play calling

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

I suppose this was the only rational decision left. Since JACKASS Snyder took his lil merry time in interviewing. He let all the top candidates pass him by with his friggin' whine & dine 28 hour interviews. So now we're left with the bottom of the barrel.
Not happy with this choice at all! I don't see Zorn being a leader ....who knows maybe he'll prove me wrong. I more pissed off with the way this whole thing was handled. I can't stand our owner!
And now what!?? Campbell and the rest of the QB's have to learn yet another whole new system right?? *sighs*

In all seriousness, Mooch would probably be a bad idea, because he would overshadow the head coach. But if they do it, my fealings wont be hurt. I just hope, that a year from now, we will be saying that Dnyder is a genious.

Hey, I hear you. I hope this guy showed VC and DS a playbook that would rival Bill Walsh. Anything less and you have to think this is a very strange hire. Remember, he was brought on as an OC 2 weeks ago which was already a step up in the ranks. He never had a chance to prove himself at that level and now he's the HC. I pray all the Zorn lovers are right.

zorn will be a good coach he has a ton off offensive experience,but as far as play calling experience,he will come out on top.after all he called plays behind center for years.

Holmgren calls the plays in Seattle. Haskell is the OC. Zorn was the #3 guy on that depth chart.

SO he didn't get the plays from the sideline and called everything at the line like Peyton Manning? I'm curious where this is coming from.

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

Hey.. I have many doubts, but I am drinking the kool-aid.... I'm gonna give him a chance, listen to his press conerence... get pumped about some fresh perpective...

my question is... has any HC been hired from QB coach without ever being OC first? Anyone know of an example?
