How is Jim Zorn doing so far?

I think Zorn is acting really calm and professional as a first year coach. He was put in a real tough situation when he made that jump from Washington state to Washington, D.C and from QB coach to head coach. I think he has the potential to win us a few ball games. He has a whole lot of knowledge about the game of football with him being a former NFL QB and all. I just want him to be around for a while.

What do you think?

kinda hard to say, professionally I think that he's doing fine, but it doesn't really mean anything yet

Re: How is Jim Zorn doing so far?

no one's played a meaningful game yet. it's easy to be optimistic this time of year, but the proof is in how well his efforts pay off in the W/L column.

the first year can be a bit rough, especially with a WCO where there wasn't one before.

So far so good I guess, but that's not saying much. We simply don't have enough to go on in order to judge how he's doing.

Re: How is Jim Zorn doing so far?

I enjoy watching his interviews on Redskins.com ... but I also really liked watching Steve Spurrier's interviews. Let's hope this one turns out a little better.

He's doing great. We're really encouraged with what we've seen thus far. We're certainly glad he's part of the organization and look forward to a productive year from him.

Re: How is Jim Zorn doing so far?

hopefully since hes relatively young for a head coach and since we gave him his first chance he will be around for more than a couple years. i envy teams like the broncos, steelers (cowler), ravens (billick sp?), colts, seahawks, titans etc who have had the same coach for so long. i know some of the teams i named have recently changed HC but you get the point.

was gibbs II 4 years the longest coaching tenure with the skins since Gibbs I?

get a coach who has a thought out approach to how you win games in the nfl. i remember a few years ago belichek (sp?) and/or parcells talking about how a head coach needs to write out their strategy for winning games in the NFL which includes how you approach FA, draft, training camp, what positions to spend big money on, how you match up against your division, do you draft line and D guys and spend money in FA to get proven performers at skilled positions etc.

gibbs never wrote out his approach or philosophy and i think that hurts the process of having a true identity year after year.

go skins!

Re: How is Jim Zorn doing so far?

What is this 10th grade english class?

I guess if Gibbs wrote a 5 page essay on how to win in the NFL he would have done better?? Say what?
