Zorn press conference

He simply looks like a broken man that has grudgingly going along and you can tell he is not happy about this. Just sad.

He said he would 'comply' with the 'strong' suggestions. When asked is Sherm Smith was considered, he simply responded, it is Lewis. This does not sound like a HC that made this decision voluntarily.

You can follow his statements on our Twitter.

here is our whole story summary

Re: Zorn press conference

Zorn was castrated as soon as he agreed to be HC here. Snyder and Cerrato wanted a puppet and they got it. They've got their hands shoved so far up Zorn's hooha, it's gonna be coming right out his mouth soon.

Any person who would accept the conditions that have been forced on him would have to be devoid of any conscience...that or he's being paid handsomely just go along with things.

Something is fishy with him being fine with one, the consultant, and two, the further demotion from his most important function.

Weird things abrewin'.

Re: Zorn press conference

Sherm doesn't have a great rep at play calling? Did y'all hear that last question?

Re: Zorn press conference

If Zorn had any balls he would have resigned before he let Vinny take away his play calling....complete joke, what other coach would EVER agree to that?

I feel bad for Zorn as well.

Re: Zorn press conference

Vinny is such a PUSSY, that he is basically putting on the squeeze to make Zorn resign by having someone else do the play calling and bringing in a consultant.

Eff that...If he had balls he'd say "I'm going out and calling plays against the Eagles...if you don't like it you can pay me the remainder of my contract...thanks for your patronage"

The only reason he wouldn't do that is if it's in his best interest to stick around and take this. The only way someone would be fine with that is if there is some additional compensation/insentive that we don't know about.


Whatever it is...any normal human being would not remain/compromise under these circumstances. Zorn is either really special or has vested interest that is unknown to the general public.

Re: Zorn press conference

He's being smart about this, for himself and his family.

He knows he's toast. He knows Dan and Vinny don't want to scare off yet another cadre of big-name coaches by blowing up yet another year is amateurish fashion, so they are inclined to let him stay on nominally while they meddle, tinker, and otherwise emasculate the guy.

Guys like Mosley say it's humiliating and he should quit and storm out, to save his dignity. Well, I'll tell you two things -- there's a fine line between dignity and stupidity, and dignity doesn't pay your mortage.

I feel bad for the way this is going down, but I've been in a similar situation and I think Zorn is absolutely sad, humiliated, pissed, and probably a lot more fired up than he's letting on. I feel bad that it turned out this way for the guy, but I respect the fact that he had the guts to try to take this on.

He took advantage of a huge opportunity and nearly made it work -- no matter what else happens, the first half of last year was amazing for him and the team, and he'll probably get another chance to coach again. I imagine a lot of people will like the way he's handled himself through this process, and Vinny and Danny will come out looking like incompetent morons who set a good guy up for failure.

You got it. He's forcing the Skins to fire him and have to pay off his contract. He wont get all his contract $ if he resigns. I dont blame him one bit for sticking it out to get his $.

Those two spineless idiots are doing everything they can to get him to quit and he is taking it all with a smile!

Who do you think is tougher? A guy in the ring of fame of an NFL franchise or a 5'5 pissant who couldn't bust through a wet paper bag?

Screw you Snyder! I love Jim Zorn!!!! This is so awesome!!

I bet you'd compromise for $5 million.

This is so good because he is beating Snyder at his game.... $. Snyder obviously does not care about the team or the fans but he has always cared about his wallet.

SCREW YOU SNYDER! YOU DESERVE THIS, PISSANT!!!
