The muzzle belongs on Snyder, not Zorn

Somewhere under a big tent out in the Midwest sits a group of clowns who get together after their circus performances and make fun of the guy who has the job of the human cannonball.


That’s because no matter how horrendous one person’s job may seem to be, there is always someone else who seemingly has it far worse.
Nowadays, forlorn Washington Redskins coach Jim Zorn must feel like that lonely human cannonball.
What exactly was Zorn’s job when the Redskins hosted the Eagles at FedEx Field on Monday night? It certainly wasn’t the same one that 31 other fortunate men who call themselves coaches in the National Football League have on a weekly basis.

Largent rips Snyder’s handling of team

Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent said during a radio interview Tuesday that Redskins coach Jim Zorn considered resigning when owner Daniel Snyder decided Zorn would no longer call Washington’s plays.


Largent, who caught passes from his old friend for the Seattle Seahawks between 1976 and 1984, ripped the Redskins and Snyder during an interview on KJR radio of Seattle, saying he believed Snyder’s decision was an attempt to force Zorn’s resignation.

Zorn did consider resigning, Largent said, but ultimately decided not to quit on the team.

Zorn pretty sure for a pink slip

The Jim Zorn era in Washington effectively came to an end on an unusually cold, windy afternoon before 12,000 empty seats and 79,000 angry, bundled-up customers. The coach hired for his offensive expertise couldn’t generate any points in the first half against a winless team at home for the second time in three weeks.

After Sunday’s 14-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Zorn apparently will coach again next Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles – but only after giving up the cherished playcalling part of his duties at the request of executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato, who met with the coach Sunday evening with the blessing of owner Dan Snyder.

The Redskins infamously haven’t scored 30 points in any of Zorn’s 22 games. Struggling so mightily against the likes of the Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Louis Rams, Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers will earn a coach a pink slip, whether that comes after a loss to the Eagles that drops the Redskins to 2-5 or at the end of a season that’s rapidly heading toward a train wreck of a finish.

One switch that happened Sunday, the halftime benching of quarterback Jason Campbell for Todd Collins, received a ringing endorsement from the crowd but produced only brief dividends with a 42-yard bomb to Santana Moss that set up a field goal, leaving a quandary at the position for the Philadelphia game.
