Cerrato: Zorn will stay

This morning Vinny Cerrato, who supposedly speaks for Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, said head coach Jim Zorn will not be fired during the season.
"Let me start by making a few things very perfectly clear: Jim Zorn is the head coach of the Washington Redskins, and will be for the rest of this season, and hopefully into the future."

If this endorsement of Zorn had come two or three weeks ago, it might have helped. At this point the team's morale appears to be a lost cause.

Meantime, the Richmond Times-Dispatch's lone remaining sports columnist, Paul Woody, has zeroed in on the real problem at Redskins Park.
Cerrato, the executive vice president of football operations, is not the problem. Replacing him with a "real" general manager will not solve anything. The problem is that team owner Dan Snyder runs a hands-on operation, and even after 11 years in the NFL, he still does not have a handle on how to produce a consistent winner.
