Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Take what Theismann says with a grain of salt. Last night Jim Zorn himself was telling people he had "no idea" of an imminent firing. Although that was more to save face and not make the post-game talk about him, than anything else. classy move.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Zorn was just saying what he had to say. Unless he's the dumbest guy in the world he knew this was coming.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Do you figure at this point Zorn would have wished he had resigned when Synderato took the playcalling from him???

He probably would have forfeited some salary that way since he was voluntarily ending the relationship. By staying on, I believe it meant he gets paid his contracted rate.

More precisely, I think he wished he could resign and still get his paychecks for next year. I think he understood the business aspect and would not regret staying on so that he gets his full contract. I wouldn't. And if he really is smart he would have used that time to prepare and learn and look at what he really needs to do to be better in his next job, if he takes one.

2.5 million dollars for 3 months of "humiliation" as an NFL head coach? Slap my ass and call me Mary, show me the money.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

I may have missed this but does anyone have any thoughts as to whether Zimmer, if hired, would run the 3-4 or the 4-3. I know he has run both in the past and was just wondering as to what people on here think...

From what I've read he only ran the 3-4 because that's what Parcells wanted. He'd never ran it before that.

I don't see where we have the personnel for a switch to the 3-4 right off the bat.

Not if we keep Orakpo where he's most valuable, on the D-line.

Yeah no doubt Rak needs to be on the line full time. Maybe put on a little more weight and he'll be fine.

Rak and Jarmon in rotation on one side, Carter on the other and Merriman at the olb sounds good to me. It was interesting to see Shawne interview on comcast postgame.
