Off that bat here let me say I am not sure if this should have been a Fanshot rather than FanPost, but anyway, this is the one I am most used to using, so there.
Last night, Peter King on his Twitter Feed was responding to fans of other teams who just got new coaches, who were underwhelmed by the names being mentioned but pointing out that when Mike Smith and Jim Harbaugh amongst others were signed, there was much handwringing from those FanBases upset they did not get the big name.
Now in what may be suprising, I did not use this opportunity to once again slam the Shanahan hire (i.e Washington went the opposite of what I consider sensible, such as getting the Tomling and the Harbaugh and once again went for razzle dazzle)
No I took the high road and tweeted @peterking but so was Jim Zorn in Washington so sometimes coaches are underwhelming for a reason :)
Soon Peter Retweeted that msg with this reply, a reply that really made me smile as I saw that although it was never written about at the time, the National Media did understand how screwed we were with the Kindergarten Ninja at the helm
RT @ozsportsdude but so was Jim Zorn in Washington...... Vinny Cerrato GM.
Simple concise and to the point. I dont even think he was arguing Zorn was a good coach (afer Swinging Gate how could he) I just think in 3 small words (or 2 words and an abbreviation to be precise) he felt our pain and pointed out that poor Zorn, for all his failings, really never had a chance, probably also explains why Spagnuolo shunned us at the time as well.
Well its all in the past now and thank god he has gone, but it used to really frustrate me, and I am sure it did some of you, to see the National Media types like Peter King, never attack Cerratto and occasionally quote him as if he was a real GM, not just Snyders mate who was screwing a franchise. The fact Cerratto used to see himself as competent irritated me as much as his ever present sunglasses. Now I just hope that maybe just maybe that tweet was bought to his attention and he understands what a joke he was.
