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

These comments are kind of interesting. I'm not quite sure what to make of them quite honestly. Thoughts?

washingtonpost.com

"When you're playing on a team that you're not allowed to make as many mistakes because the score is going to be held a little lower, you've got to concentrate and you got to focus that much more," cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. "We can't give up a big play like I did [Sunday]. We can't slip, we can't fall, we can't give up a touchdown because we know that one touchdown could be the one that beats us.

"We definitely got to keep guys out of the end zone. We got to keep them held to field goals. If that's the kind of team and the kind of game plan we're going to be playing in, we as defenders, we have to step it up and we kind of know that."

Yes, he did blast Zorn. However, everything D Hall said was absolutely true. I feel like Zorn is an extension of Gibbs. Not the risk taking offensive minded coach I was hoping for when he signed on after every other coach shunned us.

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

I think it's pretty obvious what the players are thinking. Meanwhile Zorn keeps defending his play calling and placing blame on the execution. I hate to say it but unless the offense starts putting up points really soon it won't be long until there's a serious divide in the locker room, and when that happens the season is over.

He is exactly right and he said it in a very professional way. If he is going to say something publicly alluding to low scoring that's the way to do it.

I agree, good thoughts there by D. Hall. He said it in the absolute right way too.

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

I agree. Hall "blasted" Zorn but he did it by being honest and stating the obvious. The offense is horrible, most noteably due to Zorn's horrible game calling, playcalling, and game management skills. As far as i'm concerned, Zorn cannot be fired (or preferably just demoted) soon enough.

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.

I agree with everything he said there. If this keeps up there will be a rift in the locker room and when that happens good night ladies and gentleman.

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

Looking at most NFL point spreads, it obvious that one TD is huge as the teams are so close to each other one TD is often the difference. I dont think its a slam as much as saying that the D cant give away cheap TD because it can mean the difference between a W or L.

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

Hall is just making excuses for his shitty play. Everyone knows the offense sucks. But be a leader and not a complainer. Step your game up instead of letting some no name wr beat you like a drum. Hall is starting to show his true colors.

When you don't play well you should not be talking. I respect the fact that Hall steps up, but when everyone else is playing tackle football and you're playing two hand touch, be quiet, get your game together and let it do the talking for you.

It's not like he is mouthing off. He's been taking a lot of responsibility so far. Considering his rep before coming to us it's clear he's trying to show he has changed his tune.

He's definitely not mouthing off or complaining. I know some people love to spin things in the worst light possible, but I just don't see it here.

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

Zorn went for it on 4th down, got them close and the offense couldn't punch it in. That's taking risks. We were 0-5 in the redzone. Zorn can take some of the blame not all the blame.

Yes. At least he called out himself, too.
