Zorn Stripped of Play Calling Duties

According to Jason Reid of the Washington Post, shortly after the Redskins loss to the Chiefs, Vinny Cerrato met with Head Coach Jim Zorn and “told him he thought Zorn had too much on his plate.”  Therefore, Zorn agreed that he will no longer call plays.  The team will decide who will call the plays on Monday.

I’d like to say that this is a good thing.  It is a good thing really. But it’s too little too late.  The season cannot be salvaged at this point in time.  This seems like little more than another sign that Zorn will be gone after the next game when they have the bye week to make adjustments.

    In my view this is a horrible development, if true. I don’t believe for a minute that this would sit well with Zorn, or that it wouldn’t be a pre-cursor to his separation from the team. I don’t disagree with the thought that he shouldn’t be calling the plays, but he should have turned the play calling over to a member of his staff rather than being stripped of that duty. The idea that Cerrato would execute the decision simply weakens Zorn’s authority as head coach. The bottom line is that the Redskins should either fire him or let him continue to do his job. This in-between crap is ridiculous, and is one more indicator of a front office which is just too similar to Jerry Jones. It’s amateur hour in DC, and has been since Snyder bought the team.
