Theismann: Not a Make or Break Year for Zorn

Redskin great Joe Theismann was at Skins camp on Tuesday, and talked to reporters about a variety of topics, including the fact he feels that current coach Jim Zorn is NOT in a make-or-break situation for the 2009 season to win now or he’ll be fired:

I totally disagree with this being a make-or-break year for Jim. It’s the second year in the system, it’s the second year as the head coach, it’s the second year as the offensive coordinator. There’s so many things to deal with and learn. Practice looked so much different this year than a year ago, the players are a whole lot more comfortable and efficient, and it’s the reflection of having a year behind you.

Here’s the thing you have to understand, last year Jim wasn’t really gonna be the head coach, he was gonna be the coordinator. And then boom, all the sudden, here you are, the head coach. I’m sure Jim’s sitting there going, ‘Well, I can do this, but my plans have changed a little bit, now I have not just the offense to deal with but special teams, defense, my coaches.’

  1. Jim says:

    Does Joe not realize who owns this team ?
    With Snyder, 2 years is all Zorn will get, especially with Cowher and Shanahan out there.
    Zorn’s only hope is to go deep in the playoffs.
    (At this point, close your eyes and imagine Jim Mora saying, “Playoffs ? Playoffs ?”)
