Cowher to meet with Bills Staff

Zorn to be fired

KEYWORDS: bills; coach; nfl; redskins; zorn
I think Dan Synder is a class A scumbag. If Jerry Jones had conducted interviews before the end of the season, it would be press day and night. Snyder has zero class.

Zorn’s replacement would be the Redskins’ seventh coach in Daniel Snyder’s 11 years as owner.

Washington fired General Manager Vinny Cerrato last month and replaced him with Bruce Allen, the former GM of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Talking about a revolving door....

Is that Mike Shanahan formerly of the Denver Bronco’s all set to take Jim Zorn’s job?

Cowher made a comment today that the Colts proved they weren't a good “outdoor” team because they were losing in basically blizzard type conditions in Buffalo. They were also playing their 2nd and 3rd string players. Sorry, not too bright.

Cowher might be going to the Bills? The popular theory was that he was going to Cleveland.
Cowher is a over rated coach. I am a Steeler fan but he was nothing more than a big mouth and jerk. But then I remember Chuck Noll and he was a tough act to follow.
Good luck Cowher. But I am glad he isnt on the Steelers Sidelines.

Whats up with Jon “ Chucky” Gruden? Does he go to Notre Dame, take an NFL job if offered or stay in the booth?

Have to write, he did have some funny comments in the booth this year.

For 3 quarters the Chargers played 2nd & 3rd string and we still won. Also playing in high 70s weather in San Diego

PHILLIP RIVERS IS THE BEST BAR NONE.

I was about to blow up at Norv for not playing to win.

GOOD thing the third string eeked out a win.

I think it’s important to keep the winning streak going.

Is it just me, or does it seem to you he has a couple of cocktails while doing commentary? By the start of the 4th he seems to be a bit more “talkative”. He is kinda entertaining at times.

And Dallas beat the Skins regularly in the ‘80’s too.

I’m just kidding with you, btw. As a Colts fan, I don’t ever look forward to playing SD or NE in the playoffs. In fact, to be honest with you I try real hard not to get to excited about the playoffs at all, lol.

Take heart, we finally have a GM with ties to the George Allen era (Bruce Allen, George's son). Maybe the future is now (but I hope we draft our way to contention).

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!

Not sure if it happened today. I read on cbs sports forum today that he had been playing for some time with 3 broken ribs. No idea if that’s true or not.

Everybody's team has gone to pot. Gimme the good ol days when the league wasn't filled with a bunch of self centered wussies with the "ME" mentality ! Oh and don't forget the "stick-um" and even th QB's weren't above getting their bells rung like everyone else.

They're saying that Wes Welker suffered a tear in his ACL in the game.

Bad news for the Pats.

Wel... it's getting more interesting all the time.

Packers played well against Arizona. Sounds like they will be playing each other next Saturday night.

Aaron Rodgers finished the season over a 100% ranking for the Packers. First time that has been done since Bart Starr.

In what I was hearing here in Sport's Central, (WTMJ, Milwaukee) following the Packer game, they also mentioned Welsy Welker's torn ACL.

We got a scare as Charles Woodson went down before the half of the Packer game. He seemed fine though in the second half. Didn't play, and seemed to be fine along the sidelines.

Zorn is a nice guy, but he was unprepared to be a head coach in the NFL. That said, you can hardly blame him for taking the money Snyder was willing to pay him.

I sure hope he finds success somewhere next season. He sure deserves it. He’s had a really tough year with a lot of things to deal with that were outside his control. And like you pointed out, he lacked the experience necessary to put it all together. Through it all, he acted with quiet dignity; a virtue rarely seen in this neck of the woods.

Another coach who should be meeting with the owner of the team @0800 tomorrow is Denver Bronco head coach McDaniels. Pat Bowlen should fire his butt and hire a competent mature individual that knows what the f*** he's doing ... McDaniels isn't that guy.

Dallas is 59-39-2 against Washington, since I count ties as a half of a win, something the NFL did not do until 1974, that would be 0.600.

My guess is that Zorn will end up in Cleveland and reunite with Holmgren.

Packers played well against Arizona. Sounds like they will be playing each other next Saturday night.

They did, but Saturday will still be interesting. Looking at the highlights (it's all I can see of my Packers where I live), Kurt Warner appeared to be out most of the game. There were a few other injuries, as well. Next week, whatever their condition, the Cardinals will not just be licking their wounds.

Here’s one for a true Redskin fan....”70 chip counter trey” with TE Clint Didier in motion right to left. Joe Gibbs bread and butter play with the Hogs.

He signed a new contract with ESPN earlier in the season, I think he will be unavailable next year. I think he is a refreshing addition to a previously horrible crew.

Thanks for the update. Good for him. Gruden started out slow in the beginning at came about mid season.

His interview, IMO, with Brett Farve sucked. Gruden was horrible.

But as I wrote, he came about.

And yes, I agree with you, the previous crew was horrible.

Not sure “regularly” is the right term, although they beat us 12 games and we won 8 out of the decade, those were truly the days though.
I had the extreme pleasure of meeting and talking with Charlie Waters in am airport once, he too lamented the fact that they played for the love of the game back then.

P.S. Superbowls in the 80’s Washington 3 Dallas 0

Russ Grimm and that awesome walkon, Joe Jacoby, and the feared and vaunted counter trey, along with the rest of the Hogs. Now that's Redskin football at it's finest.

And sir, after reading your homepage, I feel very honored to be on the same thread with you. Thank you for your service.

I wish! Only good thing he did was hire Nolan.

McMangini is not head coach material.

I guess we have another year of him tearing down the Broncos before he’s let go.
