Re: Zorn Fired

You guys realize that Flacco had a better season last year than he did in '09 right? I forgot who said it but I think they said it best when talking about Zorn: He actually did a good job as the qb coach in B-more but he has a difference in philosophy with Cam Cameron, which prob. led to his departure.

Re: Zorn Fired

Yeah I think in this case they just wanted to give more autonomy to Cameron, which makes sense. Zorn will catch on somewhere else.

Re: Zorn Fired

Poor Z-Man, he'll have to put his house on the market! He was lucky to be fired as skins head coach but not have to relocate for his next job. Unless U. Maryland hires him, or he becomes Georgetown's head coach, he'll be moving.

I agree, the WR coach needed to go first. Flacco put those balls on the money and they were dropped.

Re: Zorn Fired

People, please. Zorn is a very good QB coach. Look how he developed Matt Hasselback. Joe Flacco looked pretty good to me this year. As what others had said, it's more or less a difference of philosophy between Zorn and Cameron. And after watching that game against the Steelers, I'd probably fire Cam Cameron if I had a choice, but that's purely a different topic.

Zorn's a good guy, good position coach. Any team would be lucky to have him on the coaching staff.

I was surprised they were able to co-exist with three former head coaches working together on the offense. What's the saying? Too many Indians, not enough Chiefs?

You better show up at moderator OTAs. You slipping.... Gotta stay in top offseason form. Don't want one of these new upstarts to overtake you on the depth chart.

Re: Zorn Fired

Zorn was a bad hire from the beginning. It was a horrible hire. It's not his fault, as he's a good guy. No OC experience? Bad hire. I believe we interviewed Jim Schwartz and Rex Ryan too. Cerrato and Snyder chose Zorn? Hmmm. I don't think he ever offered Jim Schwartz. He may have offered Ryan, i don't know.

Kind of feel bad for him for getting canned in Bmore though.

Re: Zorn Fired

Lets see if I got this right?.....

Zorn (QB Coach) to Zorn (HC)= Fail.
Zorn (HC) to Zorn (QB Coach)= Fail.

Hmm, does this mean Zorn is a failure or a system guy? I think his best bet right now is for Holmgren to find a way to utilize him. Hopefully he can get his "mojo" back.

They interviewed several people, no one wanted the job here with the Skins or requested to be dropped from consideration.

Our choices we were left with were Zorn or Fassel. I'll admit I felt Zorn was the better choice and felt I'd rather give a new up start a chance vs. picking up an aged Fassel. and... I'll admit that mistake also.

Isn't Fassel being looked at by another team? I thought someone interviewed him for either a HCing job or position coach.

Not sure that Ryan actually interviewed, he was on our radar but for DC
