What I did find, was across the board improvement. we had more sustained drives, both numerically and by percentage. Yes we had fewer overall drives, but that's because we didn't sputter on alot. we scored more off our drives. Yes they need to make more TD's and less FGs, but again, the opportunities existed this year where they did not last year.

last year we had 1 drive of 70+ yds, this year we had 5 drives of 70+ drives.

All of that is improvement.

Against the same two teams, you name a category and we improved on it this year. We went 1-1, last year 0-2.

So be negative my friend, but atleast when Zorn says there has been improvement from last year, know that he isn't bald face lying. Just wearing (slightly) tinted glasses

Re: Potential Epic Fail

This would all be cool but yards dont win games. We can move up and down the field all day long, doesnt matter if you cant score in the RZ. 0-4 wont get it done. Zorn better get it in gear over these next 3 games.

Re: Potential Epic Fail

It's funny, if we come away with 2 TDs instead of FGs and won 17-7 does this thread even exist?

I think its the fact thate we were turned away 4 times by the RAMS. had it been the Steelers with the same score nothing would be said.

Yeah I get that. Minus the RZ issues there really wasn't much to complain about, but of course scoring TDs is the name of the game and it's a big area that needs to be fixed.

Not to mention the fact that any realistic person would have us at 1-1 right now.

Which makes me think...I don't think there are any bad teams in the NFL. In the last two weeks, teams that have played terrible one week, have done better the next. I mean even the Rams who laid an egg against Seattle, played us tough and could have won.

Some of us want to be arrogant and say for a fact that our team is going to beat X team. Right now I would say that there are few teams that can say that. Even Detroit was up 10-0 against Minny last week and played a good half.

No better team than the Lions to finally get this offense going

Re: Potential Epic Fail

it is only week 2 and I try to look for positives, but one thing keeps poppin into my mind and its hard to ignore. WE ARE TIED WITH THE FRIGGAN BROWNS FOR 31ST IN THE LEAGUE IN SCORING. Dallas Scored on the Gmen and we struggled vs the Rams. its not like we faced the Steelers and the Ravens these first 2 games.

I have the feeling they are saying similar things about us:

Re: Potential Epic Fail

Tis a scary outcome, that's for sure. But if it means we drop Zorn and replace Campbell and finally commit to getting a Qb in here that can develop into a winner, or be one off the bat, then it just might be a good thing.

If thats what it takes, then that is what it takes. Skins fans, lets get ready to look to the future with a new HC and QB.

It almost sounds like you want Zorn and Campbell to fail. Understand this, if we blow up the ship and bring in a new HC and QB, we may pine for the good old days of 8-8 or 9-7. I can easily see this becoming a perrenial 5-11 team if we start over. Campbell played solid ball against the Rams, making many plays with both his arm and his legs.

I think sticking w/ Zorn guarantees 5-11 at best...possibly 2-14 because just about every team in the league can put up 16+ points and Zorn absolutely cannot figure out how to score more than two touchdowns in a game. He's done...yet again we have another guy within the franchize who would not have a job in the NFL outside Redskins park (the other is Vinny, obviously).

Tell that to Mike Singlteary and San Francisco. Zorn and Vinny both are responsible for this underachieving. Zorn by not having his team mentally ready for this game and Vinny for not addressing the offensive line.

Zorn isn't a bad coach, just to much to fast IMHO.
