Redskins VP Vinny Cerrato said on a Washington radio station that Jim Zorn will be the head coach for the remainder of the season. Now, that's over with.
Probably not because this thing could get ugly pretty quick. If the Skins get embarrassed at home by Philadelphia on Monday Night, then there will be some reservation over keeping him going into the bye week. And just because Cerrato has spotted him the season doesn't mean that the vultures will stop flying over FedEx Field.
I do appreciate the fact that the team actually has made a public stance. The vultures aren't going anywhere but the mob with the burning stakes can go back home and rest for a couple of months. Maybe this will allow Zorn to be a bit more free with his decision making. More aggressive. Sherman Lewis may now be calling the plays, but Zorn gets to make the tougher decisions.
I don't know, maybe I'm grasping at straws. I rather Zorn coach the rest of the season and then get canned. This season isn't salvageable ... no matter who the coach is. Let Zorn finish out the string for the "maroon and yellow".
