If anyone has the right to complain (and if they do, it should not be publicly), it is the members of our defense.

The one thing working for our offense was the running game -- and Zorn decided to start messing with it. Zorn is an idiot.
Factually wrong. Zorn's playcalling and Campbell's ability to avoid negative plays saved what could've been even more disastarous of a second half of the season. Zorn really only made a few bad playcalls IMO, the Sellers Goalline plays and a few others. I guess the timely screens and draws that were successful were terrible playcalls.....

1.This is a 6-10 team (at best) next year.
2. Zorn will be fired.
3. Vinny will be fired. (He said in an interview Snyder was only giving he and Zorn two years to right the ship).
4. Next year, at this time, Synder will attempt to hire BIll Cowher to a 12-15M per year annual contract to be our head coach/team president/general manager. Unfortunately, He will probably be beat out by Jerry Jones. There is no logical reason for Jones to have not fired Wade Phillips by now - none. the only reason he still has a job is because Jones wants Cowher and is keeping the team intact until then.
5. If Snyder can't outbid Jones in landing Cowher, plan B will be to hire Mike Holmgren as our GM and Mike Shanahan as our Head coach. This is actually may be a better situation for the skins anyway. Shanahan/Holmgren live and breathe the WCO, so we wouldn't have to change to a brand new offensive system again. They are also offensive guys so they would probably be fine leaving the defensive system in tact - our team would have far greater continuity with a Holmgren/Shanahan combo than by bringing in anyone else.
1. Wrong
2. Wrong
3. Wrong
4. What has the chin done that's so incredible? He had remarkable support from ownership, good talent, weak division and one SB in 15 years. He'll be out of football two years next year.
5. What has Shanahan after the two SBs (post-Elway)? Support from ownership, good talent, weak division, nothing to show for it.

How about we stop trying to pin blame on one or two people (Snyder, Cerrato, Zorn, Campbell). We have flaws that will not be fixed in one year. Maybe we should focus on rebuilding the OL & DL and developing the talent and system we have in place. There is no miracle owner/GM/coach/player that will swoop down and bring us a SB. We tried that five years ago with a HOF coach, and IMO one of the best if not the best ever, and he couldn't bring home a SB trophy.

Support of the ownership also kept Gibbs 1 alive. yes he got 3 SB rings, but if not for Jack Kent Cookes dedication to him, who knows. I just think this is the key thing that our team needs now. we've tried every combination known to man except just letting patience and structure grow. The bad part of that is while it is developing, all us fans can do is wait and hope.

Portis was never destined for being an analyst anyway.

Re: More Portis

Terrell Owens is a diva who plays wide receiver.

Clinton Portis is a diva who plays running back.


Terrell Owens' skills are slipping and he will soon reach the point where his value on the field is no longer worth the baggage he brings along with him.

Clinton Portis' skills are slipping and he will soon reach the point where his value on the field is no longer worth the baggage he brings along with him.


If the comparisons with Terrell Owens offend folks here, substitute the name "Chad Ocho Cinco", "Brett Favre", KW II ...

Well said, and much agreed. But I must add that Gibbs having chalked up a Super Bowl after season 2 certainly kept Cooke dedicated.

Agree 100%. JKC was a great owner and Bethard a great GM.

Re: More Portis

Two things, 1) Average to Good Running Backs are a dime a dozen, 2) I like the way Portis plays, but fans go to FEDEX to see the Redskins play, not see the Clinton Portis show.

Re: More Portis

I'll just copy a post I made over 2 years ago...

"Surprise, surprise, Portis whining again.

He needs to STFU and do what he's told."

I got raked over the coals for that then, now it seems most people feel the same.

I like that (STFU). I don't text or chat and blogging is new to me. I've tried to leave behind acronyms after the military but I think I'll keep that. Here's one, CP luv ya but STFU!
