Pennington is actually a great vertical thrower, historically. He just tends to prefer to underthrow the deep fade rather than lauch it out in front. He can't make that throw to Ginn, but he's the kind of quarterback who can make Malcolm Kelly a star, and possibly Santana Moss relevant again.

And not only can't he make that throw to Ginn, but he can't make that throw where he rolled out near the end zone. I believe it was to #83. He zipped it. That was a big time NFL throw.

I still think Zorn is a pretty good coach, personally, but he's completely in over his head wearing as many hats as he does.

You could build a successful coaching staff around Zorn by tearing down the offensive coaching staff and piecing it together again around what Zorn does well (i.e. call protections, make halftime adjustments), but hell, it's way easier to just blow the whole thing up and throw a truckload of money at a pretty face who can make losing fun again!

Are you referring to a certain ol' ball coach who is now in charge of the South Carolina football team? LOL.

Not only are their offenses more advanced, they actually blitz successfully!

I've been making excuses for JC, Kelly, Thomas and pretty much damn near everyone else on the team but I just can't do it anymore.
It was disgusting to see Maclin and Collie make plays, We get jack shit from our guys...

I'm embarrassed to say that Daniel Snyder needs an intervention and that intervention is losing.
I've been spouting off about the cure for years now: INVEST HEAVILY IN THE O-LINE IN THE DRAFT AND THE OFFENSIVE PROBLEMS WILL DISAPPEAR.

It doesn't matter how good the skill positions are when the QB can barely get to his 2nd progression without getting hit.

Would you believe the Redskins have 10 former first round picks on their roster?

Well, Jon Gruden was once voted one of the 50 sexist men in America.

But I was actually referring to Shanahan.

Our coaching doesn't suck because Zorn can't coach, it sucks because it's Jim Zorn and a bunch of people who have no idea what Jim Zorn is doing. Jim Zorn has no particular concept of understanding successful receiver route combinations, and there's no one on staff who complements that weakness. So our routes are just very vanilla.

I think Zorn did everything that was advertised of him (trained Campbell), but with the benefit of hindsight, this plan was destined for failure from the beginning. The warning signs were there, I just wasn't close enough to the team to see them.

Actually, yes. Which makes it even worse. We have like three in the secondary, I believe. Then there's Campbell and Samuels.

Who else, Portis and Orakapo?

Portis was a second rounder.

Re: It's a joy watching other teams play

That was a great game to watch. Makes you realize even more how bad we look. Funny what you said about tearing down the offensive coaching staff Tripp, I was talking about the same thing today. I really think Zorn could be a good HC given some time, but I really don't see much in his assistants. Looks mostly like college guys who haven't done much in the NFL, or NFL coaches who have been promoted to positions they've never held. Our execution looks like shit and how much are these guys responsible for it? Of course the o-line, we know whose fault that is.

Now, after you said that, I could see it as well.. I have always believed that Zorn has the potentials to be good head coach; but right now, I'm not so sure anymore..

Get me my C4, it's time to blow up this team. LOL. One can only dream, no?
