A deflated-sounding Jay Gruden following the Redskins’ Week 6 loss caused The Junkies to compare him to Jim Zorn. But just how similar are the first seasons of the current and former Skins coaches?
A list of the Washington Redskins coaches with the worst records.
How bad is it for the Washington Redskins? Well, it’s worse than the Jim Zorn era according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
The apparent chasm between the lighthearted Jim Zorn era and the militaristic Mike Shanahan regime might not be quite as gaping at it seems.
Hall of Famer Steve Largent, while on with the Junkies to promote his Table Manners appearance, made a surprising revelation about Tim Tebow Tuesday. According to his former teammate Jim Zorn, who worked with the quarterback last week in Arizona, even after three years in the NFL, Tebow still doesn’t know the fundamentals of the quarterback position.
It’s not uncommon for Mike Shanahan to carry a collection of young ball-carriers on a team and go with the hot hand, but if the Redskins find out they don’t have a number one running back on this offense after cutting Tim Hightower, it could be catastrophic to RGIII’s passing game.
It sure hasn’t been easy for Jim Zorn since he came to Washington.
“We have a much younger football team. We have a lot more depth at a lot of different positions. I feel good about the type of players that we do have.”
Three years ago, riding high under an upbeat, smooth-talking coach named Jim Zorn, the Redskins were playing great football. However, ever since then it’s been a disaster. So what has Mike Shanahan done as Zorn’s replacement?
However, hopes always springs eternal for the burgundy and gold faithful even after an 18-30 record the past three years.
