When I saw the DS interview at the Super Bowl I was under the impression that we had no choice but to play the game. I mean orders are orders. However the recent reports on this story have me thinking that Snyder went to Goodell and said something along the lines of hey "Hey Rog, we'd be perfect for this game."'

Our front office structure ran him out of town, just like it kept a number of candidates from considering the job.

Hopefully Zorn works out, but he'll have to win over the lockeroom before anything else.
According to Synder in yesterdays press conference all of the serious HC candidates said that they would bring in a new OC/DC if hired so therefore Gregg and Al were fired. But from what I hear it is true that Gregg and Vinny didn't get along very well, it seems that Vinny thought he knew more about X's and O' than Gregg and thought he should be calling the shots

Re: The reason GW DIDNT want the job

I don't know about the rest of you Redskins fans out there but Im more than willing to give Jim Zorn a shot at this thing. I hope he can help to turn us around and get us back to championship status. What do the rest of you all out there think, how many are willing to back him? Also I'm glad it wasn't Fassal that was hired but also I hate to think that my feelings posted on here and on ExtremeSkins cost him a job (which according to Peter King of SI is reason Fassal didn't get the job was because of all of the negative response of us fans in these blogs and live chat rooms).
But I do feel comfortable with Zorn getting the job and I hope he doesn't let us down
I he can turn things around.

I know but isn't that cool that we help influence decisions in the Redskins FO? Next stop Vinny Cerato, sorry dude but we have to work our way up to Synder.

Only coaches with previous rings and almost universally accepted clout are given final say over personnel.
I don't agree with the assessment that Pierce wanted to get away from here. I believe it was Williams who said that we didn't necessarily need him and that Pierce used that as motivation to prove that he was a good LB. I guess Pierce 1 and Williams 0 on that assessment.

Funny, I wasn't aware that he was even offered the job. In fact according to Vinny, Zorn was the only candidate that was formally offered the job.

I also remember a quote right after Spurrier was hired, apparently he went up to Snyder to talk to him about the draft and Snyder told him to basically take a hike and just worry about coaching the offense or something to that effect.
So it was Danny's decision to bring in Weurfel, Matthews, Jacquez Green & draft Taylor Jacobs, all former gators?

Re: The reason GW DIDNT want the job

What do you guys think about the skins FO in general? Without getting into specifics (about players and who picked them), I think over the past 5-7 years we have been below the league average in offseason acquisitions and drafting definitely. If you don't agree that we are average or slightly below, do you think the FO has been good enough to get a pass for our losing record over this time period? If not, I would seriously think that Snyder and Cerrato have to accept most (not all) of the blame for this failure. I don't know about you guys but it seems to me that the Redskins win football games in spite of their organizational structure not the other way around. I'm not saying that I blindly believe many of the allegations made by ppl on this thread but forgive me if i'm not skeptical of them or the fact that many good HC candidates did want to stay away from our vacancy.

This wouldn't surprise me in the least, but its also possible that GW was feeling stagnated here by the way players were being acquired too.

Your right it was Snyder who called back to back time outs. It was Snyder who droped those passes. It was Snyder who fumbled that ball against GB. It was Snyder who lost all those game when leading into the second half. It was Snyder who agreed to sign MB when Gibbs came back. Maybe its Snyder and the front off that should be saying "we gave you what you wanted. paid for the talient, and this is the best we get". Maybe thats why they took a month to hire the HC.

So your saying all those D players we have signed over the past couple of years for GW was Snyders mistake. Thats the biggest BS I've heard yet. Keep trying to find something better than that. Do I need to name the players we have aquired for him. Maybe name some of the players that maybe we let go because of him. Can you spell Pierce and we can just plug another player into his spot.
