Re: Snyder's Possible Head Coach Smokescreen

i think they hired zorn as the offensive coordinator because they were absolutely blown away in the interview but it was just too risky to make him a head coach because he had no experience as a coordinator.
when there continued search yielded no candidates that impressed them they said in laymens terms what the hell lets give him a shot at the top spot.
if they had hired a top candidate and failed it would have just been a failed attempt and they would have moved on, but with zorn if he had failed miserably it would have been another snyder mistake and snyders image with the media and fans would have taken another hit, and I believe that snyder is at least a little worried about having an al davis type image with the fans and media which i believe made him a little gun shy in pulling the trigger on a coach that impressed him very much.

Wow. I've heard of tinfoil hats, but never saw a tinfoil football helmet before.

Don't be loony. Leave that to the Oakland fans.

True. If he wanted a fill-in, he could've picked up any of us for $50,000.

you didnt qoute me but you did say oakland fans so i am curious if this is in response to my post and more specifically my al davis comment.

if so why do you think they didnt give him the head coaching position right away, I meen if he impressed them why not and if he didnt impress them why did they offer it to him.
i suppose its possible they wanted somebody to fail but like somebody else said 15 million is a lot for a seat warmer plus i dont think that snyder would play a game like that.
If he really wanted cowher i think he would have gotten him this year or moved on to another candidate.

Zorn is not leaving town unless there is a major breakdown, possibly loosing to the Rams and Lions! Impossible!

I don't think he had any intention of looking in house until Zorn kicked in his door one morning and said to Danny, ""We're no strangers to love. You know the rules and so do I. A full commitment's what I'm thinking of, you wouldn't get this from any other guy. I just gotta tell you what I'm feeling... gotta make you understand. Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye, never gonna tell a lie and hurt you. We've known each other for so long, your heart's been aching but you're too shy to say it. Inside we both know what's been going on, we know the rules and we're gonna play it. And if you ask me how I'm feeling, don't tell me you're too blind to see" And the rest, my friends, is history. Now, thank you to JGisLordOfTheRings for 'letting' me steal your bit. Thanks to htownskinfan for reminding me of said bit (and my great idea for a Halloween custom that no one will get). And thanks to Redskin Warrior who taught me that all my English teachers were wrong - paragraphs are for suckers and commies!
Yeah, my thoughts EXACTLY. :confused:

zorn interviewed REALLY well - all you need to do is watch his pressers to see what they probably saw. he's honest, he's smart, he understands the game, and he's been preparing for this for years.
Not to mention his pedigree. A former QB (great for Jason Campbell), and a Mike Holmgren QB coach. Holmgren has a fantastic coaching tree, and apparently that played a big role in Danny's decision.

The idea that Danny would totally tank a PLAYOFF team for a year with the hope of getting Bill Cowher is ridiculous. If he would do such a thing he would fall right into the same category of the William Clay Ford's and Al Davis' of the league. No way.

Just lock this thing.
