yes, you're right. no matter what, the season is done. a new coaching staff will not turn it around, but it gives them the opportunity to evaluate the team and focus on the needs to build and prepare the team for next year. Right now we have players that are not contributing at all, a new staff will help weed them out.

Yeah Man...this seems like a legit board.

At this point, it seems like we have a wasted season on our hands. I say we start unloading and begin to put things back together (I hate using the word rebuild, kinda scary ). Hopefully, the root of our problem, Vinny Cerrato is gone, or at least relieved of his GM duties (or lack there of). Once Dan Snyder realizes that he is not a GM, nor is qualified to be a GM, then we can move on from there. I would like to see some positive changes, because not only is the Front Office in shambles, the locker room is in chaos

That is what game film, offseason workouts, and training camp are for.

BTW, what unit are you in? I used to be in 1/9 FA.

Re: Do you expect Zorn to be fired

Zorn was picked for this reason so a new vetern coach becomes available. He is already fired, he just hasn't been given his walking papers.

I personally don't think Jim Zorn stands a chance at finishing the season due to the way Dan Snyder deals with HC's in the past that aren't named Joe Gibbs.

By the way I am new here!
Uh, can I sue for name infringement? Kidding, welcome to the board.

Re: Do you expect Zorn to be fired

Part of this decision is what you believe makes a good football team. I've always believed that with a just few "superstar" exceptions, the talent level on most teams is just a hair difference. If you were to rate all the MLBs on the NFL rosters from 1 to 64 (assuming every team has just for right now) throw out the top 5 and the bottom 5 and I bet there isn't much difference in physical talents. A couple tenths of a second difference in a 40 yrd dash, couple less reps in the bench press, etc.. The key difference in how a player plays and if a team wins is coaching. Granted there are superstars who can rely on amazing talent alone, (I don't care how you coached Barry Sanders he was just going to run on you all day) but for the most players the training and the system are key.


Look at the team that has had the most success in the last 10 years, the Pats. They won the Superbowl in 2001, 2003, and 2004. Look at the starting lines up from the 2001 game vs the 2004 game only 5 starters out of 22 were the same. They didn't win because of talent per se they won because of coaching and "the system". Belichick is not a genius at the draft. From 2004-2008 the Pats had 21 picks in rounds 1-4, (these are guys who you expect to make the team, I didn't count the whole draft), out of those 21 less then half, 10 are on still on the team. That's not horrible, that's not great either.


All I am saying is that coaching and "the system" beats the heck out of "waking up the players" or firing someone to be the scape goat. If Danny boy fires Zorn now, there is no chance to do the types of things that you do in training camp and Preseason that makes a great football team. Just wait till the season is over, show the door to Zorn and throw a boat load of money at a PROVEN HEAD COACH.

If Danny Smith got the interim head coach spot I wouldn't mind seeing B. Mitch talk to the special teams units. I doubt Snyder would be a fan of that idea though, Portis would throw a fit, etc

Having Tom Brady and a good offensive line doesn't hurt either.

Coach Gibbs wasn't a Bobby Beathred!!!! Simply put, Gibbs didn't have the positive atmosphere here the second time around to work his magic. Gibbs probably could come back to another team with a good FO and do some damage, but not here. At least he got to the playoffs with this dysfunctional FO. Just imagine what it could of been like with a FO that knew what it was doing?
I don't know, I see him in more of a supervisory role.. and I hate to say it, but without ST's murder we prob don't make the 2nd playoffs because we didn't have the spirit.. I'd train every playoff game since our SB to get ST back, not that it's been many.

I think that he needs to keep his focus on his NASCAR team, seemed like he would come back around after that season ended. The guy was a notoriously long day worker just with the Skins, then he was leading his racing team too, I'd be very inclined to believe that he was a bit distracted by that.

Teams that seem to be worse than us are beating us. So either their coaches are making it work.. or ours are doing more harm than good. Take it as you wish

Nice post. Especially the 2nd paragraph, Patriots' draft success seems to be constantly inflated

He goes to Arizona, who had a horrendous line, and turns them around into one of the better lines in the league. Warner got killed in St. Louis, but he has time to throw in Arizona. You know why? Because of Russ baby! Bring in Russ!
Made Big Ben the most sacked QB?

Warner had a horrible o-line too

not sure what you were watching

Hell let JC call that one. He knows what he can hit, kinda
