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…

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…

Jim Zorn has accepted an offer to become the offensive coordinator of the Redskins. Earlier this week, it was reported that Zorn interviewed for the position but returned to Seattle after that and it seemed likely that he would stay in his current position as the quarterbacks coach of the Seahawks. There, he could have…

A friend of a relative has an old college buddy who knows a guy who knows Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and he says that Schwartz is coming into town this weekend for another round of interviews. Actually, the source of this information isn’t quite that convoluted, but it’s just as much hearsay. I’m only…

Now that Jim Fassel has been put on the back burner, perhaps permanently, there is a sense that the Redskins are going to deliberate further on their choice for Joe Gibbs’ replacement. It seems likely that a decision will not be made this week. There is talk—unconfirmed by the Redskins, of course—that Dan Snyder may…

It looks like I may have spoken too soon. The train that seemed to be racing towards the hiring of Jim Fassel to be the next head coach of the Redskins appears to be running out of steam. In fact, it may have become derailed altogether. Usually, a story like this unfolds in predictable stages…

On SportsRise this morning, the anchor said that Kelli Johnson is reporting that Jim Zorn will get “an offer he can’t refuse” to return to the Seahawks as QB coach and offensive coordinator in waiting, getting the job after Holmgren retires at the end of this coming season. He will not be coming to Washington,…

According to multiple reports, former Giants coach Jim Fassel has emerged as “a leading candidate” for the Redskins’ head coaching job. In fact, as I type this, Adam Schefter of the NFL Network is saying that the Redskins are “zeroing in” on Fassel as “the leading candidate” for the job. This development has the message…

Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that Jim Mora the younger (he has a different middle name than his father of, “Playoffs?! Playoffs??!!” fame so he is not Mora Jr.) has withdrawn his name from consideration for the head coaching job with the Redskins. There was talk, including some from Schefter himself, that Mora…

I am hearing that Adam Schefter of the NFL Network has said during a radio appearance that he is hearing that Gregg Williams will not be the next head coach of the Washington Redskins. Instead, Schefter’s sources indicate that the job could be offered to Jim Mora Jr., perhaps as early as today. Schefter is…

On NBCSports.com, Tom Curren reports that Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is “the frontrunner” to land the job as coach of the Washington Redskins. According to a “league source”, he “blew them away” in today’s interview. I’ll admit to not knowing a whole lot about Schwartz, so I immediately embarked on some exhaustive research using…

Gibbs II, we hardly knew ye. It seems like just yesterday that the limo pulled up to Redskins Park and, amid ecstatic fans and admiring media, Joe Gibbs got out and the Redskins have been saved. It seemed like it was just a matter of time—and not very much of it—before the collection of three…
