Zorn On The Hot Seat

This may seem like another Zorn thread but this is asking an underlying question that I haven't seen asked or discussed.

Jim Zorn was hired as a first time ever head coach last year. He started his rookie coaching stint and led our team to 8-8. In only his second year of coaching...

How is it that our 2nd year head coach is on the Hot Seat?

Now I'm not making excuses for him, nor do I think that he has been showing his coaching worth as of late but the question begs...How is firing him even a consideration at this point? Zorn is in his 2nd year of head coaching for the first time in his career. What expectations were there of this rookie head coach and were they realistic?

Zorn has barely seen his initial rookie player class play in their second year in the NFL. Would you contemplate cutting D. Thomas, M. Kelly or F. Davis around now because they didn't look good?...No, because there wouldn't be an realistic expectation of them necessarily doing well.

What are the REALISTIC expectations currently being placed on Zorn and was there ever a REALISTIC possibility of success given the parameters that Zorn held being hired as the head coach of the Washington Redskins?

Re: Zorn On The Hot Seat

Had to pay you back.

If Zorn goes down, he'd better go down with Campbell throwing the ball 25-30 times next week and maybe the week after. I think he get's until the half way mark of the season.

Before I can answer your questions, I need one answered: how do we know that Zorn is on the hot seat?

Our whining or speculation, or the media's whining or speculation, mean nothing on this point. None of us holds the checkbook.

I didn't expect people from Norman, Oklahoma to grasp the concept of this thread. : ) It actually has a little more depth to it than your run of the mill "Zorn Sucks" thread.

...just read it...errrr...have your older brother read it to you again.
