With the Redskins finally managing to blow a game against a team that previously had lost every game it had played, and with “consultant” Sherm Lewis in place to absorb some of coach Jim Zorn’s duties, it’s not too early to start wondering when Zorn will be fired.
Early rumblings are that owner Dan Snyder is livid in the wake of Sunday’s loss to the Panthers, which hardly qualifies as a surprise.
And firing Zorn won’t be a surprise, either. The only question is whether Snyder wants to give Zorn a chance to beat the 0-5 Chiefs next week — or whether Snyder realizes that firing Zorn might enhance the likelihood of doing so.
Either way, Zorn and I currently have an equal chance of being head coach of the Redskins in 2010. What remains to be seen is whether one of us will have the job next week at this time.
