  1. The Zorn Supremecy

    Comments Off

    Jim Zorn is on the move again. A couple of weeks ago, he made the move from Seattle to Washington when he was hired away from the Seahawks to be the Redskins’ offensive coordinator. His next move won’t be very far in terms of distance—he’ll just be moving down the hall to a different, bigger…

  2. Paralysis by analysis

    I’ve been suffering from paralysis by analysis for the past 48 hours. Every since the hiring of Jim Zorn, I’ve been bookmarking articles about the hire and about the process, ready to pick them apart and point out the biases, the illogical and untrue statements, and the hypocrisy present in so many of them. But…

    I don’t normally post entire press releases here, but this one has a lot of good quotes from Zorn and Gibbs and sheds a little light on the process in general and how it arrived at Zorn in particular. Jim Zorn, a veteran coach of 20 years and a renowned former NFL quarterback, today was…

  8. A college coach?

    Comments Off

    I’m going to label this up front as pure speculation, but I have a theory that I want to put out there. Two weeks ago, the Redskins announced that they were going to wait until after the Super Bowl to make a coaching announcement. That game was played on February 3. We all thought that…

  10. Report: Skins have had “no contact” with Fassel

    I don’t necessarily feel compelled to pass along every news report I hear or read about the Redskins here since most of you have TV’s and all of you have computers and you get pretty much what I get. However, when something is reported on the NFL Network, I try to post something about it…

  11. Spagnuolo at Redskins Park

    Feb 8, 2008, 12:28 AM EST

    Comments Off

    According to broadcast reports, Dan Snyder’s interview with Steve Spagnuolo has moved to Redskins Park. That would seem to be a good indicator for those who are in favor of the hiring of the Super Bowl champs’ defensive coordinator, but, as has been the case throughout the process, we really don’t know. Perhaps Spagnuolo is…

  12. Spagnuolo out

    Feb 7, 2008, 11:18 PM EST

    As most of you know, Steve Spagnuolo will be remaining in his job as the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants rather than becoming the next head coach of the Washington Redskins. After talking until the wee hours of the morning both Tuesday and Wednesday, Spagnuolo flew back to New York early this morning…

    According to the latest report, Dan Snyder and Steve Spagnuolo were still huddled at Snyder’s Maryland estate discussing the Redskins head coaching job as of late Wednesday afternoon. Their talks started Tuesday evening. A fly on the wall in stately Snyder manor likely is hearing two sales jobs going on. One is typical in such…

    In his three hires of head coaches, Dan Snyder has taken one from each of three major categories. He has gone the retread route in hiring Marty Schottenheimer. Then he went into the college ranks to get Steve Spurrier. Four years ago it was returning legend Joe Gibbs. The results have ranged from a cut…

    A Hall of Fame career is made up of a series of Hall of Fame moments. Art Monk had many of those during his 14 seasons with the Redskins and his body of work was finally recognized today. Here is one of his best games, one where he came through when the team needed him…

    From the early 1980’s through the early 1990’s, a sign hung in the far end zone from my seat at RFK Stadium. It was nothing fancy, painted on bed sheets in large block letters with a Redskins helmet on the left side. It was there every home game well before kickoff and it stayed well…
