He did, signed a 1 yr. deal. Maybe they will have to pay him if he doesn't go elsewhere. JLC said they were looking to 'trade' rb coaches w/seattle. So now that we have stump, maybe he's headed west.

Which, of course, raises the question if EB couldn't teach the WCO in Washington, D.C. why would he be able to coach in the WCO in Washington State? As a first timer Zorn needs to surround himself was as many of 'his guys' as possible. The way EB's contracts have been handled differently than much of the other coaching staff (shorter in length, I believe, not extended in the same manner) you get the feeling someone didn't like his style for whatever reason even before the Zorn hire.

Sucks for Byner but at the same time I think Zorn definitely needs a few of "his guys" around to help get his offense up and running.

Good hire. Mitchell has been in this offense since 1999 when Holmgren came to Seattle. He will have Portis & Betts up to speed quickly IMO.

I will miss Byner. He was a great player and coach for us, sad to see him go and hope he does well.

You say Earnest did an excellent job here so what did he do? Didn't portis have fumble issues this year? What happened to Betts? If he is that great of a running coach I'm sure he will get snatched up anytime now. OK, yes he was a Skin and I dod like having former players on the coaching staff but only if they are helping the team so please explain.

Nobody is casting Byner aside. Typical freakout reaction.

Fact is Zorn is close with Mitchell and he is familiar with the WCO. The more help the better.

Sherman Smith's quote below doesn't look promising

"I work for Jeff Fisher, who I believe is the best coach in football," Smith said. "We have a team that is on the rise. So do we disrupt our lives here and go up there and be a part of what Jim's going to do?"

but we can all hope money talks!

Here's my explanation: Although CP fumbled more this year than most (although only 1 more time than 2004), the Redskins have been very effective running the ball under Byner's leadership. The stats* are as follows:

2007 -- 8th in the league rushing
2006 -- 4th in the league rushing
2005 -- 7th in the league rushing
2004 -- 21st in the league rushing (Byner's 1st year as the coach)

*Source: NFL.com - Official Site of the National Football League.

So even factoring in his 1st year (which was also his 1st year coaching that position ), we have averaged 10th in the league in rushing. And our passing game has not been stellar during that period, which means that we've averaged these numbers when every team knows we're going to run AND when we play two teams twice per season (Dallas and Philly) which have excelled in run defense during that entire time. In addition, CP had significant injury issues last year and yet our running game did not slip when he went out -- not many teams can boast that kind of consistency in the backfield. Betts did not need to step it up this year because CP was healthy and getting the job done. The key here is to make sure that we are consistenyly a top-10 rushing team and Byner did that.
