So far, so good on play-calling relays
Play-caller Sherman Lewis and offensive coordinator Sherman Smith performed well while practicing the Redskins' new play-calling procedure Saturday, Coach Jim Zorn said.
"I think it went fine," Zorn said. "They're both experienced coaches. They've got a system worked out. They've been communicating very well. We used it electronically in practice [Friday]; we used it verbally in practice [Saturday].
"Will there be glitches? There might be a couple, but there won't be that many. I think these guys will work it out, and we'll work it out between series. If we ever have one problem, we'll address that problem and work it out. Right now, in my foretelling, it looks pretty good."
Lewis, who will sit in the coaches' box, will tell Smith the play-call, and Smith will relay the play from the sideline to quarterback Jason Campbell. Although the practice runs went smoothly, the Redskins, obviously, cannot simulate the speed of game conditions, Zorn said. The procedure will get its first test on "Monday Night Football."
"It was probably slower than it's going to be," Zorn said. "In the game, everything is speeded up a little bit."
