True; you have to coach your players with what they can execute well and I haven't seen that in several years. If it's always an execution issue why do we keep so many of the same players?

Completely agree. However, despite how much Zorn wants to be able to smash mouth in the red zone, I don't think we have the personnel to do it.

It wouldn't matter if he did. Everybody saw the game. Hell, find someone who's not blasting Zorn. I'm one of the most loyal Redskins fans and I don't approve of the Week 2product. We do have the personnel to light up the scoreboard in the RZ. We have everything, Pro Bowl TE, FB and RB, three WR's over 6'2" and a 6'5" QB. I think the Redskins will put up 35 vs the Lions.

Don't make excuses for the offense to justify your poor play. Just say I got beat and I gotta do better next time w/out mentioning the offense.
Your D. Hall hate is showing. Nothing he said was covering up for anything.

While I truly think that DeAngelo said nothing wrong here, let's not act like he wasn't trying to offer a potential excuse for future things going wrong. He was absolutely right: there's not a whole lot of margin for error when you play the Rams. He gave up one TD. If he had given up a second, we probably would have lost. He's absolutely 100% right.

Of course, don't ignore that the offense isn't responsible for giving Hall enough of a cushion to completely suck as an NFL db, and still play on a winner. Hall took responsibility for his poor play, but he's on a razor thin margin right now between acceptable and unacceptable coverage. The reason that there's no margin for error has little to do with the offense.

NFL cornerback is a ridiculously difficult position. You need multiple players who can play it well. Hall has to show he belongs in that category.

I sure hope D Hall does not return to his old ways.

He's just stating the obvious. If the Skins are going to win, it's going to be because of the Defense. He's just holding them accountable. Now if he was really being truthful, he would have said the D needs to score 1-2 TDs a game in order for them to have any chance of beating a half-way decent team.

Re: Did D. Hall Just Blast Zorn and the Inept Offense?

I didn't see anything wrong w/ Hall's comments, in fact I thought they were measured and thoughtful. I bet anything most of the defense feels just as he spoke: there is not margin for error because a single touchdown allowed i.e. 7 points, may result in a team loss.

I am starting to wonder how much players are considering the bigger picture, that is how awful the intuition/talent/thought-process within the FO must be to have created this situation. Many of the guys on the roster played under Gibbs/Williams. The FO boots two extremely talented coaches in Williams and Saunders for a guy w/ exactly zero OC/HC experience. Specifically, Williams had already been through the HC gamut once and probably learned a great deal from it and he had the respect of the roster. I clearly remember CP talking about how much he respected Williams and that's no small thing.

...my question is how long do players dedicate themselves when they recognize the real decision-makers within the organization can't get shit right?

I'm pretty sure Blache drills it into their heads that they shouldn't give up any TD's. That's certainly the mindset you'd like them to have.

Those two old farts are both in the Hall of fame and Sonny has forgotten more about football than Jim Zorn ever learned.

Only people on this team with a chance of the Hall right now could be Albert or Joe Bugel.

I can remember when George Allen sent in a play, and Sonny ignored it changed the play and threw a touchdown.

Allen benched him and put in Billy Kilmer.

Don't forget, The Danny respects Sonny's opinion a great deal.

I figured I'd hear something about this. Sonny was great but he is not a coach. You could make the same argument for Sam Huff but I sure as hell don't want him running our defense. As far as Sonny forgetting more about football than Zorn ever learned, I seriously doubt that. I do agree that Sonny has possibly forgotten a lot about football considering his age, but let's not forget that Zorn did pretty well as a QB for many years himself and has studied offenses that weren't even invented when Sonny played. This is in no way saying Zorn was a better QB and no disrespect to Sonny, he was great and my fathers favorite QB, but he should probably leave the coaching to the coaches instead of undermining them.

Blaming execution is coach-speak for "the plays I'm calling should work, but players are screwing up". At some point, Zorn has to take some responsibility himself. Zorn is the anti-Gibbs in this respect. Joe took more bullets publicly for his players than they probably deserved, but that may explain why his teams never quit, and rallied to make the playoffs in '05 and '07. Zorn should take a page from Joe Gibbs on accepting more of the blame publicly.

This will definitely be the last year he ever serves as a head coach or calls plays. I do think he is what Mike Holmgren knew he was - an excellent QB coach. But that's all he is. He's in way over his head and he's holding the team back.
Thats the same old sh*t the St. Louis Rams fans were saying when Dick Vermil came back to coaching with the Rams. Remember? The fans wanted to run his old ass out of town but the Owner stuck with him and he turned that sorry ass Organization into a Super Bowl winner. They had the greatest show on turf. Its about giving a Coach time to teach , and aquire his guys to fit his coaching style. In Washington people want it now but it doesnt always happen over night. Lets support our team and give Zorn at least until the end of this season to evaluate his coaching job. Its Week 2 and we have dumbass fans calling for him to be fired. Marty started out 0-8 and we finsihed 8-8 and he was let go. He did go on to San Diego and have some success. We blamed Synder for firing Marty to soon,well here we are again folks what do you want a team that has some stability or a revolving door of Head Coaches? If you can't stand to be patient then get off the wagon and support some other team.
