24 hours since creating this group (of 1--so far), and this just writes itself. Case in point...
By now, everybody's seen...and read about...the Jim Zorn press conference yesterday. I won't pick it apart, except to shake my head at the sight of our new head coach speaking of the "maroon and black".
Uh, Coach Zorn...it's "burgundy and gold", OK??
All right, I'll admit he was a little nervous. But you would think, having faced off against the Redskins as a player, he'd know the difference. I mean, he can't be THAT color-blind, can he?? CAN he??
I don't know if the anger's subsided yet from this blind-siding of the fans. But, I think we Skin fans can approach this season with a clear head now. The decision's been made. Nothing we can do about it.
Besides, as was pointed out in the press conference, this isn't the first time somebody went from QB coach to head coach (without being an offensive coordinator first). Two words come to my mind immediately: Andy Reid. One minute he was coaching Brett Favre in Green Bay; the next minute, he's in Philadelphia running the Eagles.
The only reservation I have about this, is that all of a sudden we're being asked to chuck 75 years of "Redskins football" in favor of a variation of the "West Coast" offense. OK, I'll grin and bear it for awhile. Maybe I'll get used to it, maybe not. Hey, at least I'll keep an open mind about this.
Man, do I need more members...
