It is bull...but Joe Gibbs was an OC, not just that but he was one of the best.

Your right he was the worst of all in my opinion.

Sorry but Fassel looks really good right about now.

Yeal I'll agree Fassal does look good right about now whereever he is as long as its not the HC of the Washington Redskins he really does look good.

I am really surprised as to how many people do not know that.
He actually was an OC for 3 seasons. 1 with Tampa Bay in 78, and 2 with San Diego in 79 and 80.
He was an amazing OC for those 2 years leading San Diego to the 2nd most points in the NFL in 79, and 4th most points in 80 (but #1 in yards in 80).

Nope.

Let's condemn him now and get it over with so when he fails we'll be able to say we saw it coming. If we're wrong oh well, we'll just say we were glad to be wrong.

Smack, your signature pretty much sums up all that needs to be expressed in this thread. Keep a careful eye on what it's really saying as the season unfolds. I'll be here as a constant reminder.

I appologize for the misinformation. I was regergatating what I heard on NFL Total Access around the same time frame that I made that post. I should have referenced it deeper instead of taking the analysts words for it. My original point is null and void.

LOL. So very true. j/k

It's no big deal, no matter what any of us think, Zorn is still the leader here, we all need to get on board, or get off. For as much as I think this was a poor decision to move him to HC, I am very much hoping he will prove me wrong. Not that it matters, but I will give him the same respect and opportunity I gave all HC's we've had in recent years (Gibbs / Schottenheimer / Spurrier / Turner etc). Maybe he does have what it takes? I don't know him, or his philosophy, so he could be successful at some point.

I am on board, but I will not be blinded with enamor. Inexperience is still inexperience, but the fact that he played is a positive with me.

JSARNO, it was actually Andy Reed that fits the criteria for the statement that I was trying to make. I know that it is a little late now, but at least I am not a completely misinformed idiot.
