A full page of replies and not a single serious response that adds anything about the guy's history as a play caller.

When many of those seats would've belonged to a person cheering for the Redskins but they sold their ticket to show how much they can show Danny how angry they are. Or maybe it was sold to an Eagle fan that was was willing to pay top dollar for the ticket. Or maybe I'm wrong, then again there were so many proud fans at the game Sunday weren't they ? I hope that the boycotters keep it up, only to complain for the rest of the week that the stadium was empty.

I hate to say it but I hope Fed Up Field is covered in green next week.

Perfect, I forgot about that brilliant Vinny move. Vinny is the best...."Danny, I gotta idea, Dock has a roomate, 450+ lbs, from a sorry ass Buffalo team, 3-4 years ago last played...." After that, Vinny gets on Redskins Live at 6:00 and tells the fans that our draft stratgy has changed do to this signing(that allowed us to draft 2 linebackers who will never see the field).

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

From what I gathered he is a Mike Holmgren guy and Mike always called the plays.

He's been out of football for 5 years and he's 67 years old. I think that pretty much sums it.
But, if you want some more insight, according to Jason Reid:
Quote:
But Lewis, 67, was not well regarded as a play-caller. In fact, in 1999, the only year during which Lewis served as a primary play-caller for the Green Bay Packers, the team went 8-8, and Lewis performed poorly in the role, league sources said.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

He knows the WCO very well, he coached RB, WR and was offensive coordinator for Holmgren. All my years living here in San Francisco and watching him move up the coaching ladder, the guy paid his dues and was highly regarded by Bill Walsh and Holmgren. My concern is he's 5 years out of the game.

Was the play caller for 7 years in Green Bay, Offense almost always finished in the top 6. Granted he had a smart play caller in Holmgren supporting him (doesn't have that here it seems). Didn't have quite the same success in Minnesota or Detroit.

But look, I don't want to veer this conversation too far off course but this guy was one of the most respected football minds in the league and he could have been a coach somewhere but the cold, hard truth is there was no Rooney Rule in place for him.

As for his age being a factor, tell that to Dan Henning.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

Playcalling might be better, but it all boils down to execution. Zorn might not be a good play caller, but still the players should be able to execute them no matter what is called.

Yes. We should execute everyone who plays offense, to steal a line from John McKay.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

This is what happened with Zorn as a play caller:

In Zorns first 6 to 8 games he called plays so bad that it totaly caught the other teams off guard and scratching their heads. Finally the D coaches started figuring that out and sat back and ask themself this. What would be the worse call for this situation and bam they have Zorn figured out. When we make a big play its because Zorn got lucky and called the right play catching the D of guard.

One of the last questions during Zorn's press conference today was that Lewis has a bad terrible reputation as a play caller. I'm so excited that he is our new play caller.
Does it matter? Lewis will call the plays for the Eagles game and Zorn will be fired. Lewis will be named Intrim HC for the remaining part of the season. He'll get an interview to satisfy the Rooney rule and DS will bring in some GM, who will decide on a HC maybe with DS's persuation and everyone of the coaching staff will be cut. New blood brought in and players evaluated for the future of the team.

My gut feeling.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

Did anyone hear the news that just broke on fanhouse.com and 106.7 the fan? Apparently Danny boy tried to hire Shanahan to come in this season to replace Zorn to be the head coach, and he declined, some one needs to start a new thread
