Re: Santana Moss Excited About Kyle and Mike

The more interviews I'm reading/hearing with players since Shanahan came in- a lot of the comments... man you can really tell just how deeply in over his head Zorn was.

I listened to interviews with Kedric Golston and Lorenzo Alexander yesterday on The John Thompson show, and they both at times prefaced statements with "no disrespect to Coach Zorn, BUT..."

I mean listen to what Santana said- it's a new thing to be held accountable for being late! Sheesh.

Anyway, it looks like we're in very good hands with Shanahan. That certainly seems to be a central theme.

Re: Santana Moss Excited About Kyle and Mike

I think the bigger problem was really Cerrato, putting aside all the personnel issues, Cerrato just wasn't suited to be the main guy leading the organization. Just all the internal daily management of the staff was a mess the past two years. Seems to be more structure now and that trickles down to the players on the field...but still, it's only March

No doubt, seems to be a lot of love for Ray Wright too. Orakpo said some good things about the program and how it was basically a free-for-all last year like Edwin Williams mentioned. Cool that he offered to work Phillip Daniels' powerlifting into his routine too.

I agree that Cerrato was the biggest of all problems. The consensus seems to be that sweeping administrative change was necessary as soon as Allen stepped in.

No doubt, the accountability aspect is important. It was cool to hear that you have to be on time for your training sessions and whatnot and can't just jump in whenever.

A professional organization. What a nice change.

"When you have someone that's here but he can't say this-or-that and do this-and-that. You get what we had." Vinny was definitely a big part of the problem. Working under Vinny was no piece of cake.

Re: Santana Moss Excited About Kyle and Mike

Hard to find anyone that's not happy with the changes so far. And really how could they not be thrilled to have a professional regime in place from the top down.

Re: Santana Moss Excited About Kyle and Mike

Wow as a Zorn supporter I am really disheartened to hear about the way he handled the team...it explains a lot in terms of the lack of discipline and players not doing the little things like Moss pointed out.

Re: Santana Moss Excited About Kyle and Mike

From the Article: "Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to sit here and just say the last group that was here was just ..... I enjoyed Coach Zorn. I enjoyed his staff. I feel like we learned a lot from them. I just feel like right now some of the things that have been done here now are coming from our coach himself."

Zorn had his issues undoubtedly, but it is clear that he was being undercut at every turn. Cerrato was an incompetent cancer who made impossible for the organization to succeed.

What is obvious is that the players knew Zorn was not the final word about anything.

Equally obvious is that the players know that Shanahan is in charge.

Re: Santana Moss Excited About Kyle and Mike

It's always good when you hear good vibes coming from the park. I don't want to rush my life away, but I really look forward to to the season and to watch all the happy talk turn into stellar play on the field.

Actually I don't think we're giving Shanahan enough credit. Sure Zorn was in over his head but at the same time there are only a handful of coaches on par with Shanahan. Combine that with the fact that we've had a grossly mismanaged franchise for the better part of the last 10 years (only had great coaching for 4 years paired with crappy personnel moves) and you see why the players are so impressed with everything.
