Should the Redskins Fire Zorn?
By contributing writer Megan Shoup:
Well, after a few hours after the game, I know I’m not the only person in the DC area asking this question. We know the media is going to be covering this story like crazy as well! But after losing to the Lions (their first win in nearly 2 years) and playing VERY mediocre thus far, it’s a fair question to ask…Should the Redskins fire Jim Zorn?
I for one, liked him a lot last year and thought we may have a long term coach on our hands. But after 3 games of incredibly poor play calling (especially in the red zone) and pretty bad decisions (going for 4th down in the first quarter, etc.), I no longer want to purchase a “Horny for Zorny” tshirt.
But I see both sides of this decision. What’s firing going to do now? We’re only 1-2, are we pushing the panic button too early? Has that ever worked for a team and the team seen success THAT season? BUT…if you’re ultimately going to fire him at the end of season, why prolong the inveitable? I don’t think he’ll be with the Redskins next year, unless a miracle happens and they win almost all the rest of the games. There’s going to be GREAT coaches available next season and I hope the Redskins get Bill Cowher!
I know its early in the season, and I hope the rest of the season isn’t as painful as today. But the big question is, if you were Snyder (I know a lot of us think we could do his job better), would you fire Coach Zorn tomorrow? Tell us what you think!
