The Redskin offense was listless at best in a defeat to previously winless Chiefs today. From ESPN-
Washington Redskins coach Jim Zorn lost more than a game on Sunday.
Zorn was told after a 14-6 setback to the previously winless Kansas City Chiefs that he will not call offensive plays anymore.
Executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato met with Zorn and told him that he has too many responsibilities right now, Redskins’ director of communications Zack Bolno told ESPN.com’s Matt Mosley. The team did not reveal who would call plays, but an announcement is expected on Monday.
Zorn began his postgame news conference with a loud, lengthy sigh into the microphone. And the coach kept on sighing as he discussed a loss which dropped the Redskins to 2-4 this season and 4-10 over their past 14 games.
“I’ve got to be better. And it really irritates me. Truly irritates me,” Zorn said. “And I’m just not going to rest until I get that taken care of.”
The heat on Zorn is sure to increase leading up to Washington’s next outing: a high-profile Monday night game Oct. 26 against the Philadelphia Eagles, which is followed by the Redskins’ bye week.
The owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has never been a particularly patient owner or a competent one. His hiring of Jim Zorn less than two years ago left many football experts puzzled by the decision. Zorn won’t be the Redskins head coach in 2010. If the team loses their next game, I am expecting him to be fired and a interim coach before the next game is played.
