Had he missed it, and (for instance) the Saints marched down the field and scored, we'd be ready to hang Zorn. But it was not a high risk move, and the defense set was perfect to run that slant. All in all, a great gutsy move.
Yeah, I was just about to mention this. Zorn definitely made the RIGHT call, but it was not a difficult decision in the slightest.

Again today Zorn with an aggressive call to seal the game. This time a play action that led to a 26 yard completion. Even had the camera guy faked out.

They had me faked out too. At first I thought it was another two-yard run by Portis.

While the camera doesn't always catch it, Zorn looks like a fiery guy on the sidelines. When the offense was in a funk in the first half, Zorn saw it, and I think did a good job of calling some plays that would provide a spark to lead them out of it.

I really think it's like a bad case of chiggers for Zorn to see his guys on offense sputter.

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

Note the end of the cards game at the 2 minute warning, we needed a first down or we'd give the ball back with 30 seconds or so.
Zorn risks an incompletion by throwing a naked bootleg to Cooley to seal the deal and it works. If it were incomplete the clock would stop at 2 minutes on a 3rd and long. Another incompletion would have given the Cards a full 2 minutes with the ball.

It is pretty evident that Zorn will go for the kill shot...twice in the cards game (including the long FG attempt) and the 4th downer in the Saints game.

We will lose a couple games by these aggressive calls, but hopefully we will win more this way....we have already won 2.

I bet the defense loves this....they dont always have to "save the day"
