February 16-- Cerrato sheds light on off-season direction for Skins

Good read:

Vinny Cerrato joined Redskins radio for the full hour on Friday and was very open and candid about the decision behind hiring Jim Zorn as the team's new head coach as well as giving a sense of the direction the team will take in rebuilding the roster during the off-season..

First on Zorn: There was some assertions that Zorn was close friends with Vinny and therefore led to his promotion as the head coach from offensive coordinator.. Cerrato says that is untrue, that the first in depth conversation he had with Zorn came when he was here to interview for the offensive coordinator position..

Cerrato says the team and Zorn have both talked to free agent QB Todd Collins, the Redskins are hoping to re-sign him to be the back-up at the very least..

I thought that was the most interesting comment in the interview summary.

i listened to the interview and cerrato basicallly alluded to the redskins not being very interested in many free agents this year due to a poor class and them getting over-paid. he said trades were more likely and building through the draft was important.

Kinda hard to believe that Cerrato said that, with he and Danny Boys record of High-Priced FA's.

Nice to hear and I REALLY hope he means that.

At least all the lavar comeback talk can die a slow death....maybe, probably not.

I also heard the interview on Redskin radio. The interest in Collins is not surprising to me at all, the guy played great for us down the stretch last season and IMO was probably the single handed biggest reason we got on a run and made it into the playoffs. Don't want to break the bank on the guy, but he's a heck of a #2 to have. I think we found out just how important it is to have solid, smart QB for a backup last season when JC went down.

Looks like Mark's days are finally over and a possible run at Trent Dilfer for the #3 QB might be in order.

Man I can listen to VC talk but to watch him is to experience the feeling that his eyes might jump out of his head through the screen and eat me. Them some bigs eyes.

I am glad to hear they are at least paying lip service to caution and responsibility.

Wow. Well, that's at least 1 other person who thinks the same way I do. I'm always wary of VC. When he's on TV sometimes, I get the feeling that he just did a fat bag of blow right before coming on.

Heard the joke about how you tell if a politician is lying? Are his lips still moving?


Cousin Vinnie reminds me of that!

I think the article was a great find and the best part of it is that I didn't have to listen to the interview.
