Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

Hey this guy deserves some props for at least trying. Face it nobody wanted the job and in a big gamble and a chance at a HC job he went for it. He was in pretty much a no win situation form the get go with a bunch of "filler" on this team, acting like real NFL players. Thing is after week 8 of '08 I think teams dissected his system and that was pretty much it. The talent that he had was not acquired for the WCO, but still they guys should have been able to execute it far better than they did.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

He did his best considering that his authority was already circumvented by Portis and Snyderrato sometime in 2008 and he had no experience whatsoever at being a head coach, thus his last two years were primarily a painful on-the-job learning experience of dealing with that, an offense with poor depth on the OL and a mediocre QB.

I don't feel bad for him at all and he brought me a lot of pain with his horrible coaching.

Looking back at his QB drills with the slip and slide and throwing the pads at them, that is some laughable shit. Should have canned his ass right there.

Good Bye Jim Zorn and don't let the door hit you in the ass, actualy let it hit you maybe it will wake your ass up.
I love pseudo-capitalists.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

Zorn shouldn't at all be absolved of blame completely. He's the one who insisted on inexperienced playcallers like Sherman Smith to help him-inexperienced himself-out. He's the one who insisted on running that damn stretch play in the red zone over and over again. He's the one who alienated a lot of the players by repeatedly saying publicly that the problem wasn't his playcalling, it was the execution of the plays (wouldn't have hurt him to just take the bullet once or twice).

All that said, he seemed like a genuinely good guy and I wish him the best of luck

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

-Zorn gave us a 6-2 start including a win in then "un-beatable" dallas and followed up with a comeback in Philly a week later. (Consequentially then lost to the 2-14 rams)

-He managed to give what he could with the front office making changes and not giving him time to get used to them.

-The players played hard for him every game even if it didnt appear that way and for that he deserves credit.

A Day After Being Fired, Jim Zorn Speaks Out

Here is a 4 part Day After interview by CSN with Zorn. I swear they look like they are interviewing in either a mental institution or a prison. Watch Part 4 at 42-44 seconds see if you don't agree.

Re: Thanks to coach Zorn

I still think that he can be and will be one hell of a head coach. This was just a bad situation all around. I think that he is going to be a good OC for Cleveland next season.
