Re: Our next coach??

I don't know that I think Zorn is on a leash, I think he firmly believes in the starter has the job, and doesn't lose it. Who do you think tells Zorn to play or not play WR's or keep ARE at punt returns? If anything I think since the losses to the 0fers, Zorn is being forced to play others, and that also is helping us.
I agree that CP out has also helped, sad to say. but also the comfort with the new play calling system has helped too. It's just a case where so much has changed it's hard to see which specific change has had the most effect. I tend to mark the difference at the point where JZ lost playcalling, but I can see your point as well.

So the reason our offense had been so weak was that he was calling plays over and over again that where not having an effect. For instance earlier in the year on those goal line plays he ran to the left and were stuffed he just never adjusted to the personnel or anything.

He is not a coach look at ARE, still back there letting the ball bounce back for like 20 yds in a critical part of the game.
or when the red zone was failing and the comment surfaced that we had one play for Cooley and we already used it. Compare that to Lewis in the redzone, I can't remember the specifics, but basically he went to davis it didn't work so he went right back to him. But what really got me, was when we had to call a timeout because Zorn was waiting on a measure. He said that he had to know exactly before he could decide on a play. Well, maybe you have 2 plays ready, but to not have a play ready once the measure is done is ridiculous.

Re: Our next coach??

Re: Our next coach??

probably, but i think if he shows leadership, and keeps the team together after that dreadful start, he still may show something. And if he wins in dallas again, 2-0 in dallas goes far as a skins fan!

Re: Our next coach??

I've been a Zorn supporter from the start but as CRedskinsRule has pointed out before, his playcalling has not been that great. He seems to try to be too smart in the redzone. For example the stretch play works in theory, but running straight ahead works best for US. We don't always have to outsmart people in the redzone, just outplay them. It may do him good to stand back a little and learn. We started moving the ball when Betts took over and that doesn't really surprise me. For one thing he knows the plays and practices behind the o-line throughout the week. Half the time I don't have a clue what Portis is trying to do and I'm not sure if he knows either. I'm glad to see Betts get his chance because even though Portis has more talent, Betts is a better fit because he puts in the effort during the week and the o-line knows they can count on him. They know he's gonna hit the hole and run downhill. Portis usually runs into their back or falls down then complains about the blocking.

Re: Our next coach??

I was really hoping on Gruden but I have no Idea who can come here and do something.I dont like Shanahan he hasnt done anything since Elway or Switzer which took him forever to get his ring then he leaves it was all Big Ben with him or Belichik they look good because of the rings not even Dungy is a product of Payton look how long it took him to build that Defense, and he was to be defensive genious.

Re: Our next coach??

Yeah, I wasn't on the Gruden bus, Not sure who would be the best, but as I have said a lot, the key is getting a GOOD GM in, and letting him assemble a team, and Snyder assure them of 3 solid years. I don't think it will take 3 years, but the new group needs to be in charge. no ifs ands or buts

I think he wants to be like Plaxico not practice and be effective. But it hasnt worked that well now with this real injury he screwed himself because of his self-centered lazy attitude.

Yeah this off-season is going to say alot about our future. I am really worried that Dan has hurt us with the way he has treated Zorn and the whole mystery/non-mystery of who is calling the shots.

Your right It will have to start with a GM.

Re: Our next coach??

Did someone say Switzer?

It will get pretty interesting if Lovie Smith, John Fox, and Jeff Fisher all find themselves on the market as well

and as far as the play calling i honestly haven't seen anything that drastic, i guess you are refering to the times in which plays are called, i just feel that are o was the same with minor changes if the first few games with sherm, but once cp went out we started to light it up.

i guess my point would be that sherm has helped out a little bit, but portis getting a concusion actually helped us out more, as weird as that may seem, just because portis has been playing hurt all year and no one could actually stop him from sutiing up and playing, until he got the concussion

betts has been PRACTICING with first team and has a rythm with them which goes a long way
I think most of us were calling for Ladell Betts to be released this season because when he comes in the game he did not make plays. I think the O-Line has blocked much better the last 2 games than they have all season. Lets not mistake it that Portis is a better back than Betts will ever be but maybe Portis was playing hurst and also our O-line was just awful the 1st 7 games. This Sunday against Dallas we will see how well Betts does against a good Dallas front 7. Ladell Betts better hope our O-line can block Jay Rattlif and Demarcus Ware or it will be a long day for him.
