’til You Do Right By Me, Everything You Even Think About Gonna’ Fail.

“Celie: [to Albert] Till you do right by me, everything you even think about gonna’ fail. ” A memorable line quoted from the movie ” The Color Purple” (1985) – a line uttered by the Whoopi Goldberg character ‘Celie’ to her then husband ‘Albert’ played by Danny Glover .

The best scene from the movie The Color Purple, which depicts the lines uttered above. In many ways, the words uttered may very well sum up how the Redskins’ fans feel about the team and its owner, Daniel Snyder. Disgusted ,just plain fed up, with the lack of nothingness to begin with-as the team head aimlessly nowhere .

I’ve always been something of a movie buff , chick flicks notwithstanding . Of which I can take or leave, dependent upon the subject matter. And if only to keep in the good graces of the girlfriend from time to time when she asks if we can take in a movie. If it’s her choice, then I know 9 times out of 10 , I’ll be almost bored to death. And then on the odd occasion that a movie has me thinking – this is great or OK ! Well , I don’t so much feel so hard done by. Which brings me to these two focal points. If you’re an avowed Washington Redskins‘ fan , how must you be now feeling about the team and the ownership regime of Daniel Snyder ? And in what direction is the franchise ultimately heading ? As to where that might be at this juncture, nobody within the organization seems to know.

The Redskins at present are 2-5 in the NFC East and are a far cry off from even where many NFL fans may well have envisaged them to be. But then again, they may not have. As this team hasn’t bordered on anything resembling an NFL team or franchise.Seemingly, with ever larger and ever deepening pockets but hopelessly misspending on otherwise useless talent by way of their free agent acquisitions. The Jim Zorn coached team under the flamboyant ownership of Snyder and the obeyance of team General Manager & V.P. of Player Personnel Vinny Cerrato. The Washington area franchise has in effect become the butt of far too many NFL related jokes about mediocrity , a lack of heart but overall the will to win.

Redskins add Sherm Lewis

By Mike Florio

The prevailing thought regarding the job security of Redskins coach Jim Zorn has been that he’s insulated from in-season termination by the number of hats that he wears.

Zorn, after all, is the head coach, the quarterbacks coach, and he calls the plays.

On Tuesday, the Redskins arguably took a step aimed at easing any eventual transition that might occur.

The Redskins have announced that Sherm Lewis has been hired to serve as an offensive consultant.

“Sherm Lewis is an outstanding coach who has been an instrumental member of four Super Bowl championship teams,” executive V.P. of football operations Vinny Cerrato said in a release. “Sherm’s history started with the innovator of the West Coast Offense, Bill Walsh, and over the past two decades he has directed some of the best offenses, and coached and developed some of the league’s premier players. He has a diverse NFL background, having coached running backs, wide receivers, and serving as a coordinator. Jim and Sherman share a common bond in that they both worked for Mike Holmgren at different times in their careers. Sherman’s overall experience and expertise will be a tremendous addition to our coaching staff. His track record humbles us all.”

And much of what has transpired over the past few weeks has left many on the outside looking in, asking what now for this team ? Zorn has now become a de-facto lame duck head coach . As he’s been relieved of his play calling duties , which have been handed over to team consultant Sherm Lewis.The fans themselves, have not only shown their disgust with the team but the entire management and hierarchy of the organization. They’ve voiced their displeasure towards Zorn, and directly at Snyder and Cerrato , as well. It seemed only a matter of time before Snyder would respond. And seemingly , he has done so issuing a very terse and in some might deem a tepid statement. He acknowledges that there have been misjudgments on the part of the coaching staff and the organizational structure of the franchise. But what seems more incredulous, has been Snyder’s response in stating that he’ll seek to sue fans who’ve yet to pay for their premium tickets and at the same time enforce a ban on fans carrying signs or banners inside Fedex Field, Landover, Md, – the team’s home facility. Though not unprecedented , this hardly seems the appropriate action to be taking when your team and organization is said to be under siege from its very own fans. But that now seems to be the wherewith-all of Snyder as he tries to resurrect some sense of normalcy to an organization that is essentially in complete turmoil. And one that’s lacking in leadership on and off the field.

As for Sherm Lewis , it’s hard to see what he can do that hasn’t already been done. The roster of this Redksins’ team is replete with players who essentially, have given up on the season. Their demeanor says as much and clearly the likes of Albert Haynesworth , Jason Campbell , Ladell Betts , Chris Dooley, Santana Moss and Clinton Portis have sold the Redskins’ fans short , by way of their complete lack of commitment. Furthermore, for a team that’s said to have a number of seasoned veterans on it – it’s surprising to see such a lack of cohesion and leadership from those very same players mentioned. Whether or not this can be attributed to the lack of coaching shown by Zorn and his coaching staff is open to speculation. But it’s clear that the Washington Redskins as a team , are a complete bust, if you’re measuring a team by its resources and their abilities on the field of play !

If this Redskins’ team is fare better down the stretch run of the season . Then it’d better facilitate an immediate turnaround. Rather than, there being a bunch of excuses being made by Snyder and Cerrato, that they’ve got things well in hand. Clearly that hasn’t been the case under Snyder’s tenureship as the owner of the team. He’s failed the fans and the community miserably, by failing to do what was needed to be done in an appropriate and orderly fashion. Instead it’s been a constant revolving door in terms of coaches , players and the just that of the ego driven stance of both he and Vinny Cerrato to shortchange the fans by whatever means necessary. And ’til he does right by them , everything he thinks and does , will fail !

Redskins’ Snyder says team has ‘let everyone down’

By Joseph White , AP Sports Writer

CLINTON, Md. (AP)—Dan Snyder is embarrassed. He feels terrible. He’s also hurt, frustrated and apologetic. Name a downbeat adjective, and he’s all over it.

The Washington Redskins owner made some rare in-season comments about his team Tuesday, speaking at an event to celebrate the franchise’s charitable program to renovate football fields at Maryland high schools. He received nothing but cheers from appreciative students and faculty when introduced, a change of pace from the reception he and his team have heard at FedEx Field during a 2-5 start.

“We feel frustration and are disappointed for our fans,” Snyder told the crowd. “Obviously our performance to date is not what we expected, and we hope to turn that around.”

Afterward, speaking to a small group of reporters in a parking lot, Snyder elaborated—although only in general terms. Asked a question that referenced two recent controversies surrounding the team—the suing of fans who couldn’t pay for their premium tickets, and a total ban on fans carrying signs and banners into the stadium—Snyder addressed neither issue.

“I feel bad for the fans. I feel sorry for the fans, and we’re very, very appreciative of our loyal fan base,” he said. “We just feel terrible. We’re disappointed. We’re embarrassed, and we hope to get it going soon.”

Although the team says the ban on signs took effect at the beginning of the season, it was announced only recently, coinciding with an increase of negative signs targeting Snyder and front office chief Vinny Cerrato. Asked how he is affected personally, Snyder said: “It hurts.”

“It really hurts,” Snyder said. “We are really trying very, very hard, everyone at Redskins Park, the coaches, the players. The organization’s quite frankly held together well, and I think we’ve got an opportunity the rest of the season to hopefully get it going. But to date we’ve let everyone down, including ourselves, and we know that and we’re just apologetic. We’ve blown some games that obviously we think we should have won.”

The questions got more pointed as the interview progressed. After 2 1/2 minutes, in the middle of a question about stripping of coach Jim Zorn of play-calling duties, the Surrattsville High School marching band happened to approach the area, playing at full volume. Snyder stopped the question and made small talk about the fact that Tuesday was Election Day while waiting for the band to pass.

Just as the music was quieting down, Snyder said he had to go. He walked away, leaving the question unanswered.

Kirk Ferentz Come On Down The Price Is Right ……………….

Kirk Ferentz Come On Down The Price Is Right ……….

Should the Washington Redskins come to a decision as to the fate of Jim Zorn . Then it’s my belief that owner Daniel Snyder and Executive VP Vinny Cerrato might make the decision to hire a college coach . OK, so there are those amongst us who are of the opinion that the Redskins should go with a proven NFL coach with credentials that can back up the aspirations of both Snyder and the Redskins’ organization.

Iowa (Hawkeyes)  coach  Kirk  Ferentz,  left, stands  alongside   Michigan  State  coach  Mark  D'Antonio  prior  to  the   game  between their  two   teams   played   in   East Lansing,  Michigan.

The  Hawkeyes   are  also    ranked  #4  in  the BCS Poll  standings.  And  they  are   one   of the   seven   ubeaten  teams  within  the   top   ten  of the  BCS   rankings  at  present.   picture  appears  courtesy  of   ap/photo/  Al  Goldis   .........................

The candidates out there that comes to mind are Jon Gruden , Bill Cowher, Tony Dungy, Mike Shanahan and Herm Edwards. OK, so the last candidate was just meant to pull your leg. In all honesty hiring Herm Edwards is akin to having a fetish for seeing your mother-in-law naked or perhaps your grandmother ? But that’s a story for another day. I do believe however , that of the four primary candidates named , none would prove willing to coach the Redskins under the presence of an owner such as Daniel Snyder. Cerrato, would have you believe that neither he , or Snyder, tend to interfere in the day to day operations of the organization as it concerns the team’s on the field performance. Well, if the recent actions that we’ve seen within the organization is anything to go by. Then there’s no way, one can take them at their word.

The candidate I’d like to see take over the soon to be vacant position would be Iowa‘s, Kirk Ferentz . A college coach you say ? Well , if there are no worthwhile candidates within the NFL ranks . Then why not revert to the college ranks and pick a coach with a proven resume’ of success ? Other than Pete Carroll , Urban Meyer , Bob Stoops , Jim Tressel , Mike Leach and Les Miles . There might not be a better coach in all of collegiate football. As to whether or not, Ferentz would be amenable to taking the next step to the professional ranks. Well, that remains to be seen but it’s the logical step for a coach whose proven to be a very good one at the college level. My only reservation however , would be his willingness to have Cerrato and Snyder hovering over him. Much like a flock of vultures hovers over the carcass of a dying animal. And as we know Snyder, is known for making somewhat of a big splash, both on and off the field. Other than the Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones , perhaps no other owner in the NFL epitomizes greed and excess as much !

The return of Joe Gibbs was greeted with a great roar of approval and the hope was that Gibbs would be able to revive the era of successes past, for the franchise. Alas , it was not to be. Gibbs’ predecessor , Steve Spurrier proved to be a complete bust and to further point out the fact that he was best served by remaining within the college ranks as a coach. The ol’ ball coach’s style didn’t acclimatize well in the NFL. Much like his narcissism and attitude ,when it came to communicating with the players in the NFL. If ever there’s been a low point of Spurrier’s coaching career, then his stay with the Redskins proved that the NFL wasn’t the place for him to be .

One can only surmise now what awaits Zorn and the Redskins as the remainder of the season plays itself out. Of this we’re certain, we know that something is already
stirring within the organization. The death knell as to the hierarchy’s vocal backing of the coach with the usual perfunctory statement…..’Zorn remains our coach for the moment until the end of the season.’ Et tu Brutus ? Now we know why Caesar couldn’t trust anyone. And that’s simply the same reason that an NFL GM can’t be trusted when they make such a statement to begin with ! We all know the fate that awaits a coach , when such a statement is made. Just like a death row inmate knows his fate when he’s being led to the death chamber , it’s the same for Jim Zorn at this present moment in time. Cerrato , and the organization are saying the right things in order to create the impression that there’s unity within the Redskins’ organization. Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth. The players on this Redskins’ team just doesn’t know what’s happening from one day to the next. Too many chefs in the kitchen ,not enough help and common sense at all.

Ferentz , I do believe might be reluctant to leave the program. But if the right set of circumstances are in motion , then there’s the possibility that he’d make the decision to make that jump to the next level. But this is merely just speculation on my part and nothing more than that. So, for now we can only take the attitude of ‘wait and see ‘ as to how the situation plays itself out.

Which candidates could you see taking the soon to be vacant position with the Washington Redskins ?

The President Says He Wants Healthcare Reform So What Does That Mean For The Redskins ?

The President and certain members of Congress and the Senate are willing to put it all on the line for health-care reform. And it may or not be a good thing , dependent upon one’s point of view. But if there’s an entity that at present that’s in need of resuscitation, then it would most definitely be the Washington Redskins. Healthcare reform ought to be left to those who thoroughly understand what needs to be done. Considering the administration’s handling of the economy and the war in Afghanistan at present. I’m prepared to say that their attention to details ….. leaves a great deal to be desired !

Former Redskins’ great , John Riggins makes his views plain as to what he sees is wrong, with the Washington Redskins.

The lowly Redskins are beginning to circles the sink-hole much like a rotting pile of sewage when it’s ready to be flushed down a drain-hole. And at 2-4 there seems to be no signs of life in this Jim Zorn coached team that seems to have lost all forms of life , discipline and dedication to its craft. One would hate to now think what’s now going through the minds of the Redskins’ fans. Much less, that of former NFL great and Redskins’ running back John Riggins. And suffice to say that, Redskins’ owner , Daniel Snyder‘s blood must now be beginning to boil over. He and VP/ GM Vinny Cerrato have made it plain that Zorn will no longer be in charge of the play calling for the team. But the inherent problems of the Redskins to my mind, goes way beyond the apparent lack of coaching. The Redskins’ roster just isn’t good enough , despite the alleged talent that is said to be on the field of play. They lack heart , creativity, play-makers but above all , they lack leadership both and off the field. And the team is in complete disarray at present.

Zorn gives up offensive play-calling duties for struggling ‘Skins

Head coach Jim Zorn no longer will call plays for the Washington Redskins’ struggling offense.

Zorn and executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato discussed the change during a 1-on-1 meeting Sunday after the Redskins’ 14-6 loss to the previously winless Kansas City Chiefs.

According to Redskins spokesman Zack Bolno, Cerrato told Zorn he believes the coach had too many responsibilities and someone else should run the offense during games. Zorn didn’t disagree with that assessment, Bolno said.

The team planned to announce a new play-caller Monday. NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that it’s expected to be Sherman Lewis, an offensive consultant hired just two weeks ago, because he’s the only other staff member who has called plays and is well versed in the West Coast offense.

The Redskins (2-4) are averaging 13.2 points this season and haven’t scored more than 17 in any game. Against Kansas City, which entered Sunday allowing 27.6 points and 402.8 yards per game, Washington managed just 265 yards of offense and seven first downs and went 2 for 14 on third-down conversions.

“This offense is better than six points, 100 percent. And that’s on me,” Zorn said before the change in his duties was announced. “It’s my fault.”

Zorn tried switching quarterbacks at halftime against the Chiefs, lifting starter Jason Campbell in favor of Todd Collins, who hadn’t played since the end of the 2007 season. Collins led the Redskins to two field goals, but they failed to score a touchdown at home for the second time this season.

Zorn said Campbell was “a little late in hitting some things” and “inaccurate.” Zorn didn’t make clear who will be his quarterback in the next game.

Zorn began his postgame news conference with a loud, lengthy sigh into the microphone. And the coach kept on sighing as he discussed his team’s latest setback, which made Washington 4-10 over its past 14 games.

Sunday’s performance by the team was so lackluster and a complete disappointment to the home fans at Fedex Field in Landover, Maryland. It was so benign that incompetency might too soft a word to describe the team’s play. The resultant 14-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs (1-5) must have left those in attendance asking themselves ……….” how many bad teams are there now in the NFL At no time throughout the sixty minutes of play could you envisage the Redskins scoring a touchdown. So anemic was their play on offense ! Never-mind the fact that on the defensive side of the ball had the Chiefs been able to actually get anything going on offense , then the Redskins’ may well have also proven to be more of an embarrassment there as well.

And it certainly can’t have escaped those watching the game nationally the game in terms of scoring , essentially had to be relied upon the accuracy of the kickers and a ‘safety’ that was attained when Redkins’ quarterback, Todd Collins was sacked in the endzone in the fourth quarter. And unfortunately this is what the fans in attendance and those watching in the comfort of their homes had to put up with. The NFL’s biggest concern now is what indeed must they do in terms of the onfield product at present ? It’s bad enough that we’re going through an economic crisis and the mere fact that attendances for games are now down in comparison to last year. But with there being so many awful teams at present and the mere fact that they’re playing with the zeal of docile mice should tell us how acute the problems are now within the NFL.

Zorn’s own future now with the Washington Redskins must be hanging by a thread. And it remains to be seen whether or not he’ll meet the same fate as his predecessors. Daniel Snyder has never been known to be a patient man when it comes to the under performance of his coaches. But at this juncture it’s hard to see who he’ll replace Zorn with. I know that there are a number of prime candidates out there at present. Names who come to mind are Tony Dungy, Jon Gruden, Brian Billick , Mike Shanahan, Bill Cowher and no doubt several college coaches at the top of the college football pecking order. But I doubt that any of them might want to have Daniel Snyder as their employer. After all the mess that took place under Steve Spurrier era with the Redskins may well have put to rest that idea. But then again it might , as who knows what runs through the mind of Daniel Snyder from one minute to the next ?

It is my own belief that with this being a bye week for the Redskins. Snyder and Cerrato will start the ball rolling by conducting interviews with various parties whom they deem might well be interested in taking over from Jim Zorn. I do firmly believe that Zorn will be relieved of his duties before this week is out. Unfortunately for Jim Zorn , he just wasn’t the right man for the position as head coach of the Washington Redskins. His presence around the team and the mere fact that he couldn’t even get the players to play with any conviction . Well it would suggest that Zorn just hasn’t got the temperament to be a coach in the NFL. You’ve to be a hell of a lot tougher than he’s shown when conducting his pre and post game interviews. And most certainly he’s got to hold his players accountable for their lack of passion to play the game . Rather than just opining on his own faults . It creates the environment that he was way in over his head ! And from where I sit, that’s the only conclusion that I can come to. And the mere fact that the personnel there in Washington just doesn’t have what it takes to get the job done to begin with.

Redskins team report …….

“We thought we had it won. We thought we had put up enough points—17 ought to get us a win.”

– Cornerback DeAngelo Hall on last Sunday’s 20-17 loss at Carolina which Washington led 17-2 in the third quarter. The 2-3 Redskins have yet to score more than 20 points in a game.

As an NFL fan how do you view the present situation with the Washington Redskins ? Jim Zorn may well be the first NFL managerial candidate of the season. But he most definitely won’t be the last !
