Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

The more I read the more giddy I get about this move.

Lewis began his NFL coaching career in San Francisco. As the 49ers’ running backs coach from 1983-88, Lewis tutored the likes of All-Pro Roger Craig and Tom Rathman. As a wide receivers coach from 1989-91, Lewis helped his pupils, Jerry Rice and John Taylor, mesh with Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana to form one of the most potent passing combinations in NFL history. The 49ers won three Super Bowls during Lewis’ time in San Francisco.

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

I like this move. The positive in me hopes that this is a sign that Snyder is showing patience, and the team is finding a way to get some things off Zorns plate.

And the pessimist in me hopes this lays the groundwork for a new coach.

Regardless, I'm fine with this move if it improves our offense.

Jason Reid said he asked Vinny if this move would have been made if Zorn was against it. His answer....no. If this is true, good for Zorn. Lewis has been involved in the WCO for years and having him see things from upstairs during games can only help. Hopefully he can do what Hixon can't, and teach the receivers how to get separation and how to play in the WCO. Hopefully he can also iron some things out in the redzone, like having Portis run straight ahead directly behind Sellers instead of stretching it out down the line. Remember, most of Zorns assistants are new to the WCO and Lewis knows it inside and out. I think this is a good addition.

Lewis might end up being the new coach. Almost like he has the opporunity to help. But also study the situation and see what needs to change if Zorn isn't kept as the HC. Probably would be a smoother transition than Holmgren. 3 might be a crowd (Smith, Zorn & Holmgren).

At 67, I would be amazed if he wants to coach. I think that's more the wise counselor time of life (age bias I know) and so I think this could be a perfect fit.

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

The offense is going to be know as the Sherm and Sherm (Lewis and Smith) or Sherm˛.

Re: Redskins hire offensive consultant

I'm confused as to what exactly he is being brought in to do but whatever, can't hurt I suppose.

don't think an HC, even perhaps undeserved of the hire, would stay on for such a demotion

Cerrato: Lewis 'Another Set of Eyes' For Zorn

Interesting note about the experience coaching receivers. He can replace Smith and Hixon at once!
because the west coast has branched off so much they prob want someone closer to the holmgren fam

don't think vinny would let himself slip that much.. he said he came up with the people along with zorn, so I'm sure it was zorn's preference that the person be in the same tree

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.
lol what
