Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

Does anyone have any information on Sherman Lewis's reputation as a play caller?

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.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

Yeah...what the hell happened to "He'll just be an extra set of eyes"???

Not that I believed that, but that was the story that was told to Skins fans that we were supposed to drink up and believe.

Now he is coaching during the game? Everyone on this board and in the media said that Sherman was going to be the transistion to a new coach. Why doesn't the front office just say Sherman is going to be the transitional intrum coach, Zorn obviously doesn't mind.

I don't believe any press release that comes from this front office. I don't know why anyone would give them credibility.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

Here is a transcript of the last time Sherm Lewis called plays: "...G-67, G-67. B-3, B-3. I-31, I-31. Oh wait, it looks like Gladys in the back may be our big winner!"

Maybe he wasn't calling plays per se.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

For a front office so supposedly concerned about how they appear, they really seem to have lost any sense of public perception on this one.

Do they realize that Al Michaels, Jon Gruden & Jaws, as well as the espn studio, will be talking about this for the good part of 5 hours on national tv next monday night? Could they have picked a time that would get more publicity? I don't think so. It's like a call for help to the football gods!!!

We're going to get lambasted on national tv and then smoked on the field. I'm sure our stadium will be 1/3 green to add to our humiliation.

Hey, that's kind of like QB coach to NFL head coach in 2 weeks.

Dan should really consider a "bachelor" or "apprentice" style reality show, where people compete for the job of Redskins QB and/or head coach.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

Id rather playcalling go to the other Sherman. He has no experience either, but atleast he's more familar with the offense. The main thing (other than just plain sucking at pretty much everything he was hired to do) is Zorn was being pulled in too many directions.

Re: Reputation of Sherman Lewis- our new play caller

I know his reputation. He comes in from Bingo, gets paid to make this team into a well polished turd, and then he laughes his old ass back home at the end of the season, if then. Synder is a effing sucker. If I could only get to him. I've got some land in Florida . . . .

Most likely becaue fans believe that will be the ultimate F-U to Snyder. However, there will be alot of folks that will say that it's all because Stub-Hub buys tickets from the Redskins while buying from the other 31 teams at the same time. 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.
