Redskin fans must be realistic

Posted on: September 29, 2009 9:55 pm
 
Every fan in Redskin nation had every right to want every coach and player fired, the team sold, relocated, and renamed, and FedEx Field burned to the ground last Sunday.

But now that we have had a chance to cool off a little let's honestly look at our choices.

No interim coach has ever made a deep playoff run in the NFL.  I'm not sure if any have even made the playoffs (let me know if one has).

On the opposite note, there have been many coaches that have lost two out of their first three games and went on to turn their season around and win a Superbowl.  The most recent example is Tom Coughlin and the Giants two years ago.  He was just as ridiculed and despised by Giants fans early in that season as Zorn is this year by Redskins fans.

Now he has a key to the city.

I'm not saying that Zorn is likely to turn this team around, I'm just reminding people of the reality of the Redskins' situation.  If you are going to fire someone you better have a better person waiting to replace him.

Firing Zorn would effectively kill the season.  Let's not be too hasty.  After the next three weeks we will all see if Zorn should be fired or not.  Until then keep your expectations low but hold on to what is left of your optimism.
