Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

You showed a lot of class coach. Most people would have lost controll and made an even bigger mess than what you had already.

Hey lets have three cheers for Jim Zorn??!!! HIP HIP HOORAH!!!! HIP HIP HOORAH!!!!! HIP HIP HOORAH!!!!!

Damn it felt so good last year when he cranked it up after the Dallas win. Damn I thought he would be here for a decade. Good Luck Jim!

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

I dont really feel the need to Thank Zorn, because I dont think he really did a whole lot here...but I certainly feel for the guy and the situation he was in. He was in a no win situation, period. Even though I thought today needed to happy, I am a Jim Zorn fan. I really hope the best for the guy, I feel bad that this is what he walked into for his first head coachign gig...although he is gonna laugh all the way to the bank

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

Thanks Jim Zorn. Thanks for being classy even though the rumors were swirling ever since week 2, thanks for at least seeing it through until now, and finally good luck wherever you land because you deserved better. In hindsight it's easy to say he was underqualified and it's Snyder's fault for giving the job to a man who didn't even have coordinator experience, but Zorn made the best of it anyway. I hope he comes back successfull somewhere else, particularly a place I don't care about like Cleveland or somewhere like that.

Nice thread / post . He gave his all , not the perfect situation for a man to start his coaching career .

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

I wish Jim Zorn the best with his future endeavors. Personally I wished he had more experience as a head coach before coming to Washington because that 6-2 start was impressive especially sweeping Philadelphia. He should join Holmgren and gain more experience and possibly get hired as a QB coach.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

This man was the biggest of class acts. As Redskins fans I think we can all respect Jim Zorn for many of his great traits, one of them extreme honesty (to his detriment) and humility. He is a great human being, smart, and has charisma. In addition he obviously knows the game of football though lacked the experiece to be a head coach in this league as of yet. I blame this mistake on Danny mostly because of his lack of foresight and knowledge in the football department though it is tough to fault Danny for his passion of the Redskins. Finally, this heart break could have been avoided if he had listened and hired Greg in the first place. Hopefully he will finally get it right this time.

Cross your fingers! And Hail to the Redskins, as we all hope 2010 will be a much better year for the team on a number of levels.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

I like coach Z as a person and honestly the dude had the deck stacked against him from the begining and i think for the most part he did the best he could. I wish him well.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

zorn was pure class. in a way, after all the shit that went down this season, we should all be a little grateful that things weren't more chaotic in the locker room. it could've gotten uglier...there was the potential for a ton of mudslinging. i think zorn really led by example there.


i compared a photo of zorn from his signing day to one from yesterday and the man has aged 7 years in 2...he really cared about the team. BUT like allen said today, we need results. i hope the way zorn handled himself this year puts him in the good graces of someone looking for a qb coach or even coordinator.


buona fortuna jim.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

Jim Zorn handled the little danny and that ass clown Cerrato with the utmost class, just like JC. Both have been treated like total sh*t by the organization, yet they never quit and never complained.

Best of luck Zorn. You're a good man.

And now can we please remove his picture from the banner?? I've been ready to forget this era for months.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

I see no need to thank him,he got paid a lot of money for a job he couldnt handle.Blaming Snyder for his failure is stupid if you ask me,hes got no one to blame but himself.It wasnt Snyder making the dumbass call to fake a fg after a timeout,that was all Zorn,and there were too many other stupid calls to mention.I dont wish the man any bad will,but no way in hell am I going to say thank you for such a shitty job.
Hell,why were at it,lets start a thread thanking Norv Turner,Terry Robiske,and Steve Spurrier
