Redskins strip Zorn of offensive play-calling duties (http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/10/18/redskins-strip-zorn-of-offensive-play-calling-duties/) <!-- p class="post-info-author">By Jason La Canfora</p -->

Jim Zorn met with Redskins vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato following Sunday’s 14-6 loss to the Chiefs (http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2009101807/2009/REG6/chiefs@redskins), and management decided that the coach would no longer handle offensive play-calling duties, according to a team source.
A final decision on who will handle that role hasn’t been made. However, it’s widely expected that Sherman Lewis, an offensive consultant hired just two weeks ago, will take over because he’s the only other staff member who has called plays and is well versed in the West Coast offense.
Zorn remains the Redskins’ coach — at least for now — and also had been serving as, in essence, the team’s QBs coach, offensive coordinator and play-caller.

I'm thinking after the Eagles game, when Washington goes to their bye week, is when Zorn will get shit-canned.

HC, OC, AND QB coach? Preposterous! No GM or owner would allow that! ;)

Jim Zorn's, playcalling may or may not be, a problem.

But it won't matter who's calling plays when you have a bad QB.

I'll take over play-calling. I've been learning from the best over the past few years. RRPP every drive. It's easy!

True, but there was that one time where, I think he went for it or something, a 4th down, where they could had kicked a field goal.

I just couldn't remember the whole thing. I guess I'll have to look it up again...

I've seen a coach strip the playcalling duties from a coordinator. Never seen management do it to a coach. That's a kick in the nuts. Just man up and tell the guy, "Look, you're out after next week's game."

Let's see here. Zorn tried to challenge a play under the 2 minute warning. You can't challenge it, because it's a unchallangeable play for the coaches. Only the booth can review it.

AndChiefs, you're probably right. Haley went for it, but failed, which Succop could had made the FG. Wasn't impossible, but not easy. I remember it now. My bad.

Still though, the playcalling was crap. Both sides that is.

Haley addressed that in his presser. Succop was having issues making those in pregames, so he didn't want to take a chance. Looks like a good call imo.

Yeah, I haven't read that until you mentioned it. I can understand that. Didn't think it was "that" windy, and seemed like Succop was making them just fine.

Either way, the Chiefs won, I'm not going to hash everything. I'm just finally fucking happy to get a fucking win that they fucking needed it.

Field conditions were pretty bad. I can understand not going for a 53 yarder (which is what it would have been) and taking a chance on it getting blocked or something. I would have liked to see them try the FG, but I understand the thought.

death Sentence was today and tomorrow he gets the axe I'm telling ya. The sooner the better. Sherman Lewis will be interim tomorrow. Sherm has been putting together an O-package for the past 2 weeks.

You have lost to the Chiefs... you know what you must do!

They run a WCO and have an okay defence... Jeff Garcia's agent should be on the phone by now...

This is true. He is still a really good QB, and Collins showed a glimpse of what their offense can be. All they need is an accurate thrower with Cooley, Randel El, and Moss. That's a scary offense.

Hopefully this isn't Todd Haley in a year. Whatever happens the rest of this season, it would be best for the Chiefs to hire a full time offensive coordinator this offseason.

If it were me, "soon" would be today. If I'm the HC, I want things done my way. No way I'd let anyone hand cuff me like that. I'd tell them that, and probably lose my job, but keep my self respect in tact.

I don't know if I'd call any offense led by Garcia 'scary' anymore, but god knows it'd be a vast improvement on 'remarkably godawful' Jason Campbell performances.

ESPN radio is reporting that Mike Shanahan was offered the HC job 2 weeks ago by Dan Synder, he turned down the Redskins.

That's a smart move. I wouldn't want to work for Snyder.
