Re: Zorn to stupid to relay plays from Lewis to QB??

One funny thing about this whole situation is that it reaffirms my belief that the distinct hatred for Snyder will change peoples perceptions. At least 2 years before Snyder bought the team people were calling for Norv's head, when Snyder fired him (F'd up as it was) everyone fell in love with Turner as if it were his first day here. They found reason upon reason why he whould be here. Fast forward to Campbell last year. Folks were calling for his head, as a matter of fact I'll go farther back another year. When Snyder searched for Gibbs' replacement people spoke about how Snyder was going to force Campbell on another coach. That he was Danny's guy but not a good QB. Then once Danny says I'm going to replace him, everyone loves him. NOW we get to Zorn. The man whose play calling has come into question for a while now, he get's told to be a freaking Head Coach and to not worry about doing all the other jobs but be a Head Coach and everyone wishes that he was able to do it. As if the previous 6 inept games never happened. Like this team has put up 20 points at will or something. Skins fans don't know what they want. It's funny that we are impatient yet we cry for him to blow everything up and start over. Oh it is true !

True to an extent, but what we want Danny to do is blow it up and DO IT RIGHT. Hire a football guy who knows how to build a team, and step out of the way of all football related decisions.

Let the GM hire a coach, and let that coach hire his OWN staff.

Everything always seems to be ass backwards around here. It would be nice to see a traditional and proven front office setup and someone in charge that knows what they are doing and sets the tone for the entire organization.

Re: Zorn to stupid to relay plays from Lewis to QB??

My opinion of this is simple. Zorn was stripped of his playcalling duties because he had too much on his plate. If he was still calling plays into Jason, how is he really saving time to be able to concentrate on the overall football game. Management saw this as a reason to remove him all together from the "chain" so he can concentrate on managing the game.

I think he might of just not wanted to be involved in the "chain of communication" how the article says but i don't know...
"Zorn to stupid too relay plays from Lewis to QB??"

What's interesting is that he's basically been put completely out of the loop so what happens if we lose badly on Monday? Is he going to just be like "Well, I had nothing to do with this. So you can't get rid of me now."
On the flip side what if we win or loose but play a really good game?

Another thing that isn't unique? The situation itself. In fact, Smith himself has gone through it before -- not without some bumps along the way. "When I was in Tennessee," he recounted, "we did this with Norm Chow -- he was in the press box, Craig Johnson called plays -- and there were startup costs to that. There really was. There were the delay of game.... So that's natural. That's gonna happen. It can't be helped."

That's where the head coach being on the headset can be an especially good thing. "Jeff Fisher, what he would do, he'd get on the headset after every play and say, 'Gimme the play. Give us a play.' And it forced Norm to have to think a little bit faster.

"We're gonna try not to get those penalties," Smith said, "but it's ... I don't want to say it's inevitable, but it could happen, and I wouldn't be, like, 'Whoa! What is THAT all about?'"

Lewis' focus will be the passing game, and Smith and Stump Mitchell will be available to help him with running plays. But even THAT situation isn't all that new. "It happens even in the games with Z-man," Smith explained. "He'll say, 'You know, Sherm, gimme three runs.' And I'll give him, say, 'Okay, this, this, and this.' And then we'll talk to Buges, 'Hey, Buges, what do you like?' It's a community effort."
oh man
