If hiring offensive consultant Sherm Lewis was the “kiss of death” for Jim Zorn’s career as Redskins head coach, he’s really dead now.
The Redskins announced Sunday night that Zorn will no longer call plays.
Zorn and executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato met Sunday night, and Cerrato told Zorn the head coach had too much on his plate.
Here’s the kicker: Cerrato and Zorn will meet Monday to decide who will call the plays.
So either the organization genuinely has no plan or it wants its fans to think they don’t. The Washington Post reached Lewis Sunday night, who was using his extra set of eyes.
“I’m just sitting here watching the game film, trying to correct it,” Lewis said. “I haven’t heard anything.”
The Redskins have a bye in Week Eight. If Zorn is going to get fired then, the team should have the decency to put him out of his misery now instead of castrating him before another miserable week.
Of course, it seems quite possible that everyone in Washington is like Lewis, just as curious as the rest of us in seeing what owner Dan Snyder will do next.
