seriously...we have been working on scoring in the redzone for the last how many years. Its was an issue that was supposed to be resolved when we drafted Thomas, Kelly, Davis, and kept the kid from Nevada. But its hard to say anything positive when we are apparently the only team in the NFL that can't run a fade pattern to a 6'4 wide receiver in the endzone. its amazing!

Re: Potential Epic Fail

I think we should win but cant manage to ever be right with this team. If our defense keeps up the good play and campbell and portis perform it will be an easy day. If we dont snyder may begin a very quiet "stalin-esque" party purge.

Re: Potential Epic Fail

It's time for the offense to win a game. But if the 'Skins lose to the Lions, Zorn should be fired, and I've been backing him ever since he was hired. I just can't take anymore poorly planned offensive schemes, but it's more than Zorn, it's Campbell, too. He refuses to get rid of the ball by making quick decisions. Watching some of these other QBs really opens your eyes to Campbell's problems.

If we lose to the Lions I will change my avatar to a Cowboys avatar for a week.

The shame of losing will be far worse than the shame of the avatar.

Wow.. I can see the WP's bandwidth being absolutely ridic if we lose to the Lions.

Like.. the planets will align, hell may reign down on the Metro area, and the Rant Thread in off topic will grow to the size of the Super Happy Fun Thread in the matter of a night.

I suggest Zorn sleep with the lights on and a bodyguard as well.

Very likely we are going to lose? Are you drunk? We have handled Detroit the last two years and our defense is getting better by the snap.

I understand being concerned about next week, but "very likely" to lose to a team that hasn't won since 2007 is pretty ridiculous.

Re: Potential Epic Fail

You do have to give the Lions credit for being one of the most consistent teams in the league. Let's hope that they stay consistent for one more week.

Re: Potential Epic Fail

I know I'm not the only one that doesn't want Cowher to come in here next year. He'd run Clinton Portis into retirement and try and switch our d-personnel to a 3-4, aka pretty much the exact opposite type of linebackers and d-lineman that we have except for Haynesworth. I don't want a guy who won one Super Bowl after like 15 years with one franchise. And you know Snyder would still have Cerrato making all the decisions. Disaster in the making if you ask me.

But if we lose to the Lions JZ will be as good as gone. It's like I keep hearing, if you're gonna go out, go out firing, don't leave your bullets in the clip. But what makes people believe that JZ is willing to place all his trust in Campbell in the red zone all of a sudden? Unless he had some massive change of heart and decided it's time to let Campbell open it up I don't think we'll see innovative changes in the red zone next week. Mitchell can't even get on the field in the game, what makes people think all of a sudden JZ is gonna start inserting him and Kelly into all (probably 1 or 2 what with the heavy running to the left side) our red zone pass plays? I mean we'd all love to see a 3 wr set with Mitchell, Kelly, and Cooley down in the red zone but I just don't think it's gonna happen. I think Zorn is gonna keep trying to run Portis into the end zone until either he snaps or the team snaps. For me, the fact of the thing is that Zorn doesn't trust the offense to throw the ball into the endzone when we're down there. And that distrust ain't gonna disappear just like that.

A few thoughts on this

- A big reason why Cowher ran the 3-4 defense in Pittsburgh is because he entrusted the defense when he started to Dick Lebeau (and to a lesser extent Dom Capers) a huge proponent of the 3-4. But Cowher has said that he's not married to the 3-4 defense and wouldn't use it if the talent was there for a 4-3

- One of the "knocks" against Cowher has been that he really didn't do anything as an X and Os guy on game day, that he left the offense up to Bruce Arians/Whisenhunt etc. and the defense to Lebeau and whoever else was the DC. To that end, I would suspect that if he became the head coach his role would be more of a Joe Gibbs than a Jim Zorn

- Are you saying you don't want to wait 15 years for a Super Bowl? Because really Cowher's record during that 15 year span is pretty solid.

- Why is it a problem for VC to continue to make personnel decisions? Is that just the popular thing to say? Talent wise, I think he's putting a pretty solid team together. Of course, there are still some question marks. But really those can't be answered until they get opportunities. So, of course, the issue is whose fault is it they are not getting the opportunities. You can, however, make the argument that if Zorn isn't capable of succeeding and is fired then Cerrato should go with him. Because if Cerrato who told Snyder that Zorn was the guy (and not Fassel, for example) and that Snyder should put his faith in Zorn.

if it comes down to Shananan or Cowher (the popular choics), I can think of good reasons for both and neither.
