Larry Weisman Calls the Skins Offense "A Dud"
Trying to set the record for consecutive posts in which Daniel Snyder employees criticize the Redskins, I present to you Larry Weisman's post-game column for Redskins.com. Some media members have suggested that Weisman is no more than a Redskins PR man. Well, he was a PR man breathing fire Sunday night.
* "Five games are gone, 11 remain, and those who expect the Redskins offense to explode like Class B fireworks should understand they are looking at a dud."
* "The early part of the Washington schedule looked like a picnic but this team insists on bringing ants and rain to its party."
"Forget about the hiring of offensive consultant Sherm Lewis for a "fresh set of eyes." Get ready for a fresh set of excuses."
* " 'Stephon got pushed back a little bit. Clinton had no chance,' Zorn said. A little bit? Peppers bounced him backwards far enough that a play beginning at the 3-yard line died in the end zone. Any further and he'd have needed a visa."
* " 'Not sustaining drives put a lot of pressure on us,' Zorn said. Throw out the two teeny scoring drives and the Redskins had eight other possessions. Five punts, a safety, a stop on downs and a field goal goes well beyond not sustaining and approaches not existing."
* The Redskins prepared themselves for another week of hectoring and hammering from their ever-growing pack of critics. The sound and fury promise to be withering, just as this team is. Next up: The winless Kansas City Chiefs. Losers of five in a row, latest in overtime to the Dallas Cowboys. Be afraid. Be very afraid."
Here's something else fun. Comcast SportsNet, the official cable television partner of the Skins, has already prepared its piece for when Zorn gets fired.
"Last week I was asked to prepare an obit for Jim Zorn," Russ Thaler blogged. "It could run this week, or next week, or sometime after that, but it will run. And let's just say this loss in Carolina did nothing to slow down production....Yes, I am preparing the obit. It's only a matter of 'when' and not 'if' at this point, and somebody has to do it."
And then there was Carlos Rogers: "It starts not only with players and coaches, it starts with the ownership. They bring everybody in and they've got last say-so of everything, so that's where it starts, I guess."
