In what appears to be another effort by the Redskins to wave in the face of coach Jim Zorn the pieces of his manhood that have been surgically removed, Zorn won’t be relaying the play calls from Sherm Lewis to the quarterback during Monday night’s game against the Eagles.
Earlier this week, Zorn said that Lewis will be in the booth, that Lewis will communicate the play to Zorn on the sideline, and that Zorn will send the information to the field. Wednesday, Zorn said that Sherman Smith will instead be the middleman.
It’s possible that Zorn opted not to be involved in the chain of communication, since his only input would be to repeat the series of words, letters, and/or numbers. It’s also possible that others decided that Zorn might be in position to “misunderstand” Lewis or to deliberately overrule him, defeating the purpose of removing the function from Zorn’s plate.
Jim, if you have any pride whatsoever, turn off your computer, grab your keys, get up, and leave that place. You’ll get another job next year when Mike Holmgren is back in the league.
Unless, of course, Holmgren is working for the Redskins.
