    Wow, I have to think he'd rather just get fired than suffer this ongoing public castration.

    Sorry if this was posted already.

    I'm also sure it'll get moved in time, but thought it might as well start here.

    Seriously, this move hurts Snyders chances of landing a legit replacement more then if he would of just fired Zorn.

    Well, his specialty ain't defense, so what exactly is his role now? Hot dog vendor?

    They first hired him as a offensive coordinator.

    He had never been a coodinator.

    Then they gave him the head coaching job, but it's clear he has nothing to do with the defense.

    So if he isn't calling plays anymore then what the heck will he be doing on Sundays except standing around looking like a moron for three hours.

    I would have resigned if I was him.

    Have some dignity.

    That's very interesting. How humiliating for Zorn.

    1. London Fletcher is a true professional to stick up for his coach under fire like that.

    2. Jim Zorn is toast!

    Thinking about this a little bit more, it's pretty clear why this move is being made like this.

    Snyder and Cerrato are trying to embarrass/shame Zorn into quitting so they can save some money that they'd otherwise have to pay him if they just fired him.

    Everyone knows he's going to be fired eventually, so I guess they think if they can humiliate him enough in the process he may try to salvage some pride and resign, which would then salvage some cash for Snyder.

    How bad are you at your job if Vinny Cerrato can demote you.

    Good lord. The redskins and rams are the two worst teams in the league. The rams at least fight hard and play hard. The redskins are just sorry.

    Snyder has nowhere to go from here. That whole thing needs to be redone from scratch. This is basically the team gibbs built getting manhandled and totally beat down by bad teams.

    Who in the world would want to work for Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato. Cerrato would barely be able to get a scouting job on every other team in this league and he is calling the shots, that is just bad.

    If I didnt hate their arrogant ignorant trouble making fans I would feel bad for them, but they deserve snyder.

    If that's true, it is a new low for Danny. He may save some money, but it will make it even harder to recruit a competent replacement. He should just fire him and be done with it.

    I can't imagine that that they are paying him anywhere near top dollar anyway.

    This. How can anybody on that team take their coach seriously when he's not even calling the plays?

    over/under on how long it took Art or some other Redstink genius to say:

    "with Zorn not calling plays, we'll be ready to play real Redskin football now"...."playoffs here we come"

    I'm guessing it happened within 10 minutes of the news breaking.

    Have they not looked at their remaining schedule?


    Philadelphia Eagles
    @ Atlanta Falcons
    Denver Broncos
    @ Dallas Cowboys
    @ Philadelphia Eagles
    New Orleans Saints
    @ Oakland Raiders
    New York Giants
    Dallas Cowboys
    @ San Diego Chargers


    They might not be favored again all season.

    Its a foregone conclusion that Zorn will soon be fired but can someone please, I repeat, please start a "Save Vinny Cerrato's job" campaign. We do not want to see him fired.

    That hasnt stopped them from those types of predictions in the past.
