I have about a million questions.
- why did we wait so long? Free agency starts in 19 days. Jim Zorn has a lot of roster reviewing to do.
- Who is this guy
- Who is our next OC? Hopefully someone with a lot of experience... but everybody's taken already. Could it be... Jim Fassel? That would be funny.
- Is Jim Zorn really better than Gregg Williams?
I don't feel confident about Greg Blache for some reason, but for some even crazier reason feel alright about the Zorn hire. He's not a hotshot young guy like Lane Kiffin -- he's 55 and has had success (albeit, never as a HC) wherever he went. Mike Holmgren's former QB Coaches include Andy Reid, Jon Gruden, and Steve Marriuci... they all turned out alright. Hopefully Jim Zorn is our answer. I don't worry too much about his promotion, but I do worry about him being handed the keys to a team with really high expectations (we were 9-7 last year and gave Zorn's Seahawks a true game in the playoffs) and being told to succeed. However, maybe some new blood is exactly what we need. He's a better choice than Fassel, I think, and Meeks was pretty unimpressive to me. Mariucci was a compelling hire, but may have just gotten lucky in SF with Young/Garcia/Rice/Owens, etc.
We may have gotten a good man for this job... for some reason, I feel alright about him. But it's a different feeling from when we hired Joe Gibbs, that's for sure.
Let's hope we have a responsible approach to the offseason and that we can keep Shawn Springs...
And maybe trade for Chad Johnson!!!
