Smoke Signals: The heat is rising on Jim Zorn

How close did Dan Snyder come to firing Jim Zorn? That and more in the latest edition of Smoke Signals. Read it now.

Re: Smoke Signals: The heat is rising on Jim Zorn

Anything and everything I have read in the past week or two has been nothing but negative which I guess at this point is the easy thing to do. Can't anyone find a positive story to write or do I have to just stop reading anything on the skins. Football is a sport to be injoyed and it seems like more people want to drown in misery then enjoying the game. Last time I looked we are 1/1 like alot of good to great teams and we are only two games into the freaking season.

Re: Smoke Signals: The heat is rising on Jim Zorn

Good points.....good points.....let me think.....

Oh, DS is actually making money not losing money on the Skins. Thats a good point.
Umm, AA is back, Mason is still on the team, they can move the ball between the 20's, the field goal kicker is doing well, we play the Lions this Sun. who have lost 19 straight.

Hows that?

I wouldn't want to discourage anyone from visiting here, but honestly these boards will drive you nuts. I find myself giving up on threads after 20 posts or so.. The over analysis is insane, and most of the time it slants to the negative. Just watch anytime someone tries to start a "positive" thread, it either gets overrun by the negative nellies or it gets a quarter of the responses of the other threads.

You've gotta take everything with a grain of salt. People in general love to crab and complain. I see it everywhere on message boards I frequent. I like to visit boards from some of my favorite bands, and with the way the discussions go you would think nobody even likes the band. Everyone rips new songs, albums, what they wear, what they say, ugh it's ridiculous.

Don't forget that Phat Al is doing his job and Hunter seems to fit in nicely with Suisham and ST.

You're absolutely right about everything you just said. I think I'm going to be more conscious of my own negativity from now on.

Re: Smoke Signals: The heat is rising on Jim Zorn

Didn't feel like starting a new thread so I'll just add this here:

Is Clinton Portis ready to throw in the towel on Jim Zorn? Read It

Definitely think that Portis should be the last person in the world to be critical of Zorn's playcalling last week. Glad he realizes this.

ARE had his best punt return in long time , amazing how well you do when you catch on the run and run north/south.

Instead, Portis said, it's the execution. One time, for example, he said that Santana Moss was open on a deep route, but Will Montgomery was "overpowered" at the line. Portis didn't fault Montgomery, and said he was blocking the right man, but that ruined the deep chance.
Oh man, Campbell was super pissed on this play. It looks like he directed his angst at Heyer though, who didn't do a great job himself, but Campbell thought he had something.
