Zorn supplies Sellers, Haynesworth updates

Here's a quick injury update from Coach Jim Zorn's press conference, which just ended.

Mike Sellers was released from the hospital after getting treatment for a thigh bruise. Remember Jason Taylor's battle with "acute compartment syndrome" last year? That was the concern with Sellers. Suffice it to say there was pooling blood that was drained. "I don't know if he'll make it back for this game or not. That'll be something we watch," Zorn said, adding that there was no real risk except in the localized area.

Albert Haynesworth aggravated his ankle injury ("It flared up."); the team will wait and see what happens this week.

Clinton Portis and a trainer are heading for Pittsburgh today and Portis will be examined by the concussion experts at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Zorn said he'll return tomorrow night and that "we'll know then" about his availability.

Cornelius Griffin has arthritis in his knee that flared up.

Antwaan Randle El has a minor clavicle separation. "He's gonna be fine; he'll play," Zorn said.

As for DeAngelo Hall, "We're going to try to get DeAngelo more and more up to speed as we go along," Zorn said. "I know he'd love to play against the Raiders. he has to have that ability to explode and change direction."

Zorn had more to say about Shaun Suisham's job security, LaRon Landry's play ("There is nobody on that field who has the range and violence that LaRon Landry does at free safety.") and other matters. We'll have more shortly.

First thing they should do, let Suisham GO!

When a kicker misses a chip shot, he didn't do his job.

When a safety gets beaten on a double move, he didn't do his job.

When a quarterback throws an interception, he didn't do his job.

When a safety fumbles an interception, he didn't do his job.

When a fullback fumbles or misses a block, he didn't do his job.

When a defensive end jumps offsides, he didn't do his job.

When a left tackle moves before the snap, he didn't do his job.

When a punt returner muffs a punt, he didn't do his job.

I saw all of these things happen yesterday and they all contributed to the loss. The question is, why did they all happen. Well, when a head coach doesn't pay attention to detail in practice, he didn't do his job, either... instead of firing those guys, the coach should be shown the door. Of course, we have been asking for that all year long, and hopefully, at the end of the season, it will be answered.

For those who doubt me, ask yourself this question: did Marty Schottenheimer ever coach a game where his players made this many mistakes?

Problem with cutting Suisham is that we still have to pay his salary for the rest of the year since he was on the opening day roster. But if we do cut him, when New Orleans release either John Carney or the guy who kicked the winner in OT yesterday, Hartley, maybe we should pick up their leftovers?

Even if you bring JC back, you need to bring in another viable starter to push him. JC would have been on the bench with someone viable behind him.

In fact he said of the three runs before the missed field goal: we got down there with our normal plays, then had to milk the clock. We were thinking TD firs, and can score a TD using the run game.

Said those were his calls.

Still wish he would not be allowed to interfere with the two real play callers.

Posted by: Curzon417 | December 7, 2009 12:47 PM

It had Zorn prints all over it. Let me say the players know it too and are frustrated with his play calling. When you listen to JC, and Fred Davis repeatedly say they would've liked a chance to win the game, it's not a good situation. This is why Zorn cannot be the HC next year. He's not going to give up play calling and he should.

'Skins could be saying "see ya" to Suisham
Posted by Mike Florio on December 7, 2009 1:08 PM ET
A day after the Redskins blew a shot at an upset for the ages of the Saints due in large part to Shaun Suisham's shank of a 23-yard field goal attempt that would have given the Redskins a 10-point lead with less than two minutes to play, the 'Skins are considering a change.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Redskins are making plans to kick the tires on other kickers.

Graham Gano is due to visit last week. Others are expected, too.

Depending on how it all shakes out, Suisham's miss might have been the last one he ever makes in a Redskins uniform.

"The redskins' lost because of how the team played."

Keep reading this kind of stuff and its hilarious. They also had a chance to win the game because of the way the team played. A field goal there wins the game. Saints have no timeouts. Can you imagine how the defensive players felt after that kick missed? How did you feel as a fan?Then they had to go out and try to stop the most efficient offense in the league....

Suisham must go today. You cannot have him in the locker room anymore, the team may mutiny on him. Give a young guy a shot for the last four games and have another competition in the offseason.

Actually, we have an experienced defense supporting a young and inexperienced offense.

And the offense is getting its sea legs.

The right kind of playcalling and quarterback maturation are making for a nice foundation.

Not arguing on passing on Oher, but if you have no proof that it was the FO that cut Bridgers, then don't put it on them.

Cutting Suisham may help Zorn save face to a degree, but he appears to have lost the respect of a number of players for not going for the throat when the Skins had the ball first and goal at the 4. How can he justify running two stretch plays that have never worked without trying at least one bootleg with Campbell having an option to run or pass? It showed the Zorn was coaching not to lose, instead of to win.

Zorn simply needs to go after the season and a real GM and head coach hired. This team would be 7-5 or 6-6 with an NFL coach on the sidelines.

I got a different take. The Skins have begun to play better, maybe close to what most were hoping for.

But they are playing just good enough to lose. They're playing better and have made the other team beat them, rather than looking lost and unable to compete.

You dismiss N.O. because "Brees is about all they offered" Dude, you take Brees or Peyton Manning out of those offenses and they are .500 at best.

Don't undervalue a top QB under center, it can sure make up for a lot of team deficiencies.

Because he can't take some UFAs and turn them into Joe Jacoby II?

When Gibbs was here and the Skins had actually made some good investments in Olinemen, the unit was awesome - Portis broke the Skins single season rushing record, Betts had that monster half-season when CO was out.

Guys got old and the organization never reloaded on the line.

Not sure why that is his fault.

All those who want Suisham cut, there's a good case to be made. Because clutch kicking is a huge part of the job description.

What is remarkable to me is how many screw-ups the Skins made yesterday, how marginal some of the calls were and how the Skins still came within an eyelash of winning.

Suisham's miss stands out, but there are so many goats from yesterday. And yet we almost beat the Saints, the best team in football.

You guys can blame all the little guys like Suisham, Moore, Sellers, Buges, Zorn and whoever else. But it all starts up top.

Zorn had more to say about Shaun Suisham's job security, LaRon Landry's play ("There is nobody on that field who has the range and violence that LaRon Landry does at free safety.")

That's the kind of crap someone says when the person they are talking about is screwing the pooch.

Instead of saying something like:
"Laron is a defensive anchor who makes game-saving plays and turns the ball over for us."

I must admit that my estimation of JC has improved over the past 3 weeks.

But not to the point of handing the reins of the team over to him long-term.

The past 3 weeks he's played really well while simultaneously being really really not clutch - which I feel like is the story of his career.

Down 7-6 in Dallas at the end of the game: INT.

Down by 1 score at the end of game in Philly: turnover on downs.

Score tied 30-30 at the end of regulation: INT.


There's playing well, and there's playing well in the clutch...

robbkels,
My point is there were a lot of players that made mistakes yesterday and not just Suisham. Maybe Suisham does need to be shown the door, but what about the other guys? Mike Sellers has missed blocks, dropped passes, and now he has a fumble to add to his list of accomplishments: why not cut him? Laron Landry: need I say more? The point is the mistakes being made on this team have a lot to do with coaching, attention to detail and accountability. So, do you clear out all of the players, or do you chop the head off this smelly fish and start there?

BTW - Used to live in Richmond and miss the Spiders. When I lived there the football team wasn't so good, but the basketball team was fun to watch.

If you trade away the '11 first pick, you can satisfy those needs in rounds 1-2 next April and get quality.

That's three picks in the first two rounds or a third rounder and an additional late rounder.

Not doing this would expose another redskin weaknesses: a lack of FO creativity.

Posted by: MistaMoe


Not necessarily. Things MUSt fall into place to extract maximum value for the Redskins expected High first round pick.

You MUSt have a team that realy wants to trade up, and will give you real value to do so. The Jets last year really wanted Sanchez. The team that traded with them had bargaining power.

When Wacky Mike Ditka wanted to trade his entire draft class for Ricky Williams, well that's just an opportunity.

But sometimes the trade NOT made is he best trade around.

I'd take a low first and a medium second for #1. But it has to happen to be worth it, and it may not be if, say Okung is available, or if campbell is gone and a top notch QB is there.

And trade value increases if Vinny isn't picking--tho he's looking a lot less dumb these days as Thomas and Davis develop.

Disappointing loss; most facets covered already. LL is a clown that doen't make me laugh. Soup's numbers were better. However, the game announcers mentioned repeatedly that NO's top three corners did not play yesterday. Guess that's why Soup was getting away w/ staring down read one or two most of the day (the usual) and getting away w/ it. Moss was wide open 10-20 yards past Soup's (17-31, as a starter) pick throw at the end, just like he's been open for five years and not getting the ball at the right time. The excuses around the losing change by the week, but the QB that wins 35% of his starts doesn't. He's been the common thread of losing since he was handed the job. The excuses around the team losing have changed as long as Vinny's been here too, but he's been stealing checks for ten years. 5-15 in the last 20....No more excuse and lose, more step up and win. Winning teams play players that win games as much as possible at any position from the highest paid to the lowest paid. I'm sure there's a QB out there that could win more than 35% of started games.

Or he could take a sack or run out of bounds or throw it into the upper deck or whatever. Hell, call "split right, ball curl, on two..."

It amazes me that the Redskins still should have won the game with all that happened.

If I'd told you Brees would throw for over 400,

that the Skins would have 3 turnovers to only 1 for the Saints,

that at the end of the half, we'd have any interception turned TD for the Saints on a freak play,

that we would be "double moved" yet again TWICE for long TD's,

That the Saints would be the beneficiary of two iffy, huge reviews,

...would you have believed the Redskins came within 20?

Something interesting is happening here. The old guard of players is being shown the door, and Zorn/Sherm Lewis/Sherm Smith are building a case for their offense.

I'm not sure what the right thing is to do here - I suppose VC goes, but does Zorn get any thought for the team's step up in play of late? We killed him when they stank it up early, so I suppose he deserves some credit that they are coming to play with nothing to play for.

They are giving it what they have, but they lack confidence at the end of the game - just like us.

BTW: if you are local, check out the Washington Times photo in the Sports Section of the Moore INT. Clearly shows Shockey had a hand on him while he had possession of the INT on the ground. Screwed.

Going back to Zorn's conservative play calling: They got to the New Orleans 16 and then ran six straight running plays. The first three running plays were for 2, 7, and 3 yards respectively - all by Ganther. Then they bring in Cartwright for runs of 1, -2, and 1 respectively. Ganther for the day averaged almost six yards a carry where Cartwright averaged three. Yes, this was too conservative and they should have passed the ball - even if it was a little screen pass to a receiver, just to spread out the defense a little. But, even if you think running was the right thing to do, why not have Ganther in there to run that stretch play because he's the faster back and because he was doing a better job of running. In fact, why have Cartwright in there at all after seeing Ganther had the hotter hand? Game time adjustments like this are another thing Zorn struggles with.

Posted by: RedSkinHead | December 7, 2009 2:12 PM | Report abuse

The Redskins haven't run a bootleg play in short yardage or goal line except for one time when JC hit Yoder for a TD. Worse case on 2nd down would be that JC makes a short gain and we still have 3rd down to run the ball for a yard to drain more clock. It was telling that JC and Davis both seemed miffed about the play calling at the end of the drive. NO's defense was gassed and was giving up big chunks of yardage on runs up the middle with Ganther.

Running a stretch play was doing them a favor. Why would Zorn think something that never worked would suddenly work at the end of the game? Suisham choked but the game should never have come down to his even kicking a FG if we scored a TD. Check out the stats: we were 3 of 7 inside the red zone!!!

So I will eat my crow and crow about the other perceived failures besieging the team.

Hopefully, there are some other assessments about Mr. Cerrato's roster where I've been wrong.

Excuse me, I got bird to eat.

(INSERT salt shaker, knife fork, and glass of burgandy 'n gold kool aid needed to wash down all admissions of guilt.)

Suisham's misses just might result in the skins drafting Mr. Suh from Nebraska. Keep missing them Suisham.

=========================================
Boy wouldn't it be nice to have him line up next to Big Al, with Orakpo and Carter on the ends ? Although I would love for us to trade the 1st round pick up to get more picks in the draft for the OL, you can't be too upset if the Skin's got Suh.

Yesterday one of the commentators mentioned how the Skins 3rd down efficiency has improved from 30 percent to 50 percent since Sherman Lewis began calling the plays. But I'm confused. What if it's a running play? Doesn't Sherman Smith call all the running plays? And what if it's Red Zone? Doesn't Jim "Sherman" Zorn call the Red Zone plays?

Gee, I kinda thought that the improvement in the entire offense started sometime around........... the second half of the Falcons game after Portis was concussed...... Which could actually mean that the play at the running back my committee position has improved since you know who has been out with a head case???

Can anyone help me understand this? Explain it to me like I'm a 6-year old......

Good Afternoon,

The following is the best advice the owner, VP, HC, and players can get free.

Move Vinny out of the player personnel lane. Keep Vinny since he is your buddy. Zorn must go back to WA. The coaching staff must get tough on the players " LL " tell this guy he is no Sean Taylor and move him to SS or weakside LB " he thinks he is a hit man. trade cooley for top 10 pick, trade betts, smoot, rodgers, for whatever you can get 2nd, 3rd, 4th round. Pick 2 1st round OL, G & T, and 2nd round center. Keep JC, make CP loose 10-15 lbs will be faster again. Pick fast corners & smart FS. Pay Darryl Green to become HC, offense must be aggressive, not passive.

I don't know if I can explain like you are 6, but I can explain CP's issue.
CP is a great RB. He is not a FB, which is what the skins have been using him since he arrived. CP blocks better than all the OL on the team, ask some of the LB's on other teams. CP just need blocking and loose 10-15 lbs. He put on that weight because Gibbs wanted to pound him like he was # 44. Just think, Emitt Smith is not the greatest RB in history, he had the greatest OL in history.

100 million dollars Albert Haynes (not) worth anything is one hell of a Daniel Snyder BUST.

How dare this I hurt myself WIMP lay on the field and give the Saints a breather that allowed them to tie the game.

You don't get paid to get hurt. You get paid to play football and if you get hurt get the hell off the field, stupid, even if you have to crawl.

NEVER, EVER give the opponents any time out because you're hurt.

An idiot just like Zorn is.

Good news!
'Skins could be saying "see ya" to Suisham.

And Zorn will be right behind him too.
