Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

Ok now I'm maybe being a conspiracy theorist, but why specify a "history with Holmgren"

“It’s not a threat at all,” Cerrato said. “Jim welcomed the idea if it was the right guy. So we came up with a list of people that had a background in the West Coast offense and a history with Holmgren. Nobody’s job on offense changes. Jim still calls the plays.”

Cerrato: Lewis 'Another Set of Eyes' For Zorn

Interesting note about the experience coaching receivers. He can replace Smith and Hixon at once!

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

Not a good sign if your boss tells you he is bringing in a consultant to see why you suck.

Good point. They didn't want to give Art Shell a chance at one point either. Eventhough they let him go after a year. But he was one of those who broke the glass ceiling so to speak.Let's not go to the college ranks where in all the hundreds of colleges in Division 1. There are only like 3 african american head coaches. Sad. Luckily pereceptions have changed in the NFL now with Dungy, Tomlin & Lovie Smith.

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

Biggest issue everyone noted to an in-season firing of Zorn, he's the HC, playcaller and QB coach. Well, now you can promote Blache to HC, make Lewis the play caller and Meidt the QB coach. Zorn gets fired after the Philly game. I'm just saying.

Lewis was OC for Holmgren, but also coached with Shanny in SF. Hope he's got a solid calling plan because his minutes are going to be increasing.

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

Haven't looked at the thread, please let it be Holmgren please let it be Holmgren. Now let me go see what we have wrought!

Edit: Ok, very interesting, just like this team to make that one move which can get your hopes sky high again!

Yea I am easy, so what about it

By the way, Vinny's eyes in the picture that shows up on this link make him look like Damien. Is some baby sitter about to jump off a building somewhere?

Let's be honest, if JZ can do any self evaluation, and team evaluation, he already knows the offense sucks.

I don't think there is a better way to describe it!

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

I'm good with this! It may be the best compromise for replacing JZ during the season. I'm am all about having a proven OC in the house. And if the Conspir....ists are correct and the groundwork is being layed for Homgren....so be it. It should lead to a smoother transition

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

Very good time for this. Let him come in, see how the team practices and plays against some basic competition, and then start making recommendations either before Philly, or over the bye week. I think if JZ takes it the right way, this could be a move that gets him, and therefore, the team over the proverbial hump.

Totally agree. This is a solid move. I am impressed. At the very least like you said we have the ground work laid for a smooth transition to Holmgren and to add to that someone with experience on the staff. GOOD MOVE!!

But even saying that. What if we make Lewis our HC at the end of the season and move Zorn to Sherman Smith's position. Sherman Smith might get the boot instead of Zorn..lol. That might be too many Sherman's in the house..lol
