    Sounds like the path Garrett is on. And Zorn outcoached Garrett.

    Never heard of a head coach being stripped of his duties without being fired. Leave it to Snyder and the Redskins to be the first.

    Zorn has been stripped of his manhood is more like it... He's a complete joke in D.C., watching the local TV personalities like Brian Mitchell rip him has been rather funny.

    If he quits, his contract voids. I'd wait to be fired and have the remaining years honored.

    You'd really let Daniel Snyder manipulate you into giving up a guaranteed contract? And pat yourself on the back as you walked away with the mistaken notion that your dignity was intact because you rolled over and took it?

    This move says worlds about Snyder and Cerrato and almost nothing about Jim Zorn. That organization is a complete joke and they deserve the status of laughingstock they've worked so hard to achieve the last ten years or so.

    Depends upon how much money we are talking about. Everyone has a price.

    Yea, I agree.

    Its like an average joe's work place, if you quit then you get jack.

    If you get fired however, you usually get severance pay, you can keep your insurance under Cobra for 18 months, you can get up to a year of unemployment and sometimes longer with the extensions Congress passed, you get compensation for non-used vacation and sick days, ect....

    We all have had jobs that we hated at some point in our lives, and I am sure the only reason all of us kept getting up and going to work each morning to a job that we hated was simply because of the money.

    When you have a mortgage, a car payment, and groceries to buy then money becomes the overriding issue.

    I think someone else mentioned this, but if somehow Holmgren ended up here as HC, if Zorn is dumped in DC he'd almost assuredly end up on our staff in some role.

    There's nothing impressive about the way any of the Redstinks QB's play, so not sure I ant him here coaching Romo in any capacity.

    Big time. His contract is worth 15 million. He won't get a pay day like that again, and more then likely won't get another head coaching job.

    Not that I disagree, but the Skins QBs were already in place and putrid before Zorn even came into the picture.

    Good point, some are going a little over board with this humiliation thing. Zorn is being paid handsomely and he would be a fool to leave agreed upon money on the table. He was already a buffoon prior to the hiring, a little more buffoonery will not hurt his image either way imo.

    The first thing comes to my mind is, when keeping real goes wrong. :)

    Wouldn't that be fitting - Zorn on the offensive staff and Campo on defense. We'd have a monopoly on the two worst HC's in NFL history.
