Rogers Hopes to Practice Tomorrow

The Redskins' organized team activity today was closed so not much can be deduced from the session that lasted more than 90 minutes at Redskins Park.

Cornerback Carlos Rogers remained sidelined, although he indicated after practice that he expects to return to the field tomorrow. Receivers Roydell Williams and Trent Shelton practiced for the first time with the team, with Williams wearing No. 88 and Shelton No. 19. Tackle Mike Williams was again the final player off the field after his post-practice conditioning.

Rogers, who watched Monday's practice from the sideline in sweatpants and a sweatshirt, said he did not participate at all today and added that the swelling in his right knee is going down. He said he was not concerned and considered it a normal byproduct of returning to action in last weekend's minicamp. "It's nothing major," he said.

I know alot has been written about Jack Kemp. I liked Jack Kemp alot before.

Stone Finger has a sore knee. Does this mean he can't work on improving his catching ability?

Sorry if I'm a little late on this but can anyone explain why Jim Zorn is head coach instead of just offensive coordinator, or even instead of QB coach?

I think I missed the boat on that....

He was appointed OC while Cnyder and Serrato chose a HC. As the search dragged on, Cnyder and Serrato worked more with Zorn and realized how good Zorn was and they said "He'll make a great HC one day." A light bulb went on over their collective head. "Why not today?" It may also have helped Zorn that all the preferred candidates had said no to Cnyder.

I thought that was all pretty clear? Snyder is unwilling to cede the control that most HC's enjoy. I suspect, to some extent, that was even true with Gibbs. The last time he did that was with Marty and we all know how long that lasted.

I think Greg Blache felt a bit "too old" to handle the 3-ring circus that would come with being the HC. He was retired until Snyder lured him back. There is only so much that man will put up with. And I suspect he is close to the edge.

Then comes Zorn. "Sure I'll do it! No problem I can stay medium even while I am being undermined by the owner, the GM and the owner's favorite player."

Like Vinny, in some respects Zorn is a figure head for the real HC/GM which is Snyder of course. He does run the offense but I suspect he can't always dictate who starts. I suspect that on defense Blache will now have to suffer more of Snyder's interference with his decision making process because of Orapko and Haynesworth.

Snyder is as bad, if not worst, than Jerry Jones. He isn't as bad as Al Davis but give him time.

Zorn was well enough thought of by the Owner and GM to hire him as an OC AND QB coach before the Head Coach candidates were even interviewed. During that interview process, Vinny and Synder decided that Zorn would be a Great Head Coach...reasons cited were his Leadership (Zorn was a Great Leader of the Seahawks when he was their QB), his ability to teach QB's (look at what he did with Hasselback) and he was eager to be the Head Coach and take on the challenge of people Doubting him (his past has shown that when challenged he works his butt off to suceed, just read his bio of comming into the NFL as the QB of a NEW franchise and what Chuck Knoll told him about coaching with his staff after he retired). All these qualities, in addition to the BIG NAMED coaches out there not wanting to coach last year (cowher)made the decision easy for Snyder and Cerrato...I see Zorn as being a good young coach who was not perfect last year but will get it right this year. Hence, your answer to why Z-Man is HC.
