Confused by Redskins meltdown? Use this handy translation

Three emotions spring to mind concerning the end of the Scot McCloughan era in Washington, an era that lasted about as long as the Steve Spurrier era and the Jim Zorn era.

Forget Jay Gruden's extension, the Washington Redskins have never been more dysfunctional

It's the first such deal Dan Snyder has ever given to a coach. (He bought the team in 1999. Let that one simmer for a bit.) But the Redskins want you to believe the simple...

On Monday, Portis appeared on ESPN 980 where a discussion about Jay Gruden's grip on the locker room soon turned into an interesting revelation about former head coach Jim Zorn's coaching style.Portis was brief when he opined that Gruden has not and will not lose the locker room, and he...

WATCH: Colts run laughably bad fake punt try

If you were watching the Colts and Patriots square off on Sunday Night Football, you may have witnessed one of the worst special teams plays of all-time. While it wasn’t as bad as Jim Zorn and the Redskins’ “Swinging Gate” play from back in 2009, which you can watch here, it was still laughable. We’re not exactly sure what the Colts’ intent was on the play, but the...

#TBT: How Former Seattle Seahawks QB Coach Jim Zorn Once Taught Matt Hasselbeck How to Slide

Sometimes coaches have to resort to unusual or unorthodox methods to teach their players how to do something. Back in the day when he was the quarterbacks coach for the Seattle Seahawks he once brought a child's toy--a slip 'n slide--along with a special instructor to teach his quarterbacks how to slide.It's probably a safe bet that was the one day every player asked his position...

Browns at Redskins: Slide, RGIII, and throw the ball away, too

By now, Jim Zorn would have bought a Slip and Slide and put Robert Griffin III through sliding drills. Zorn got the job as Redskins OC because Jim Fassel told Mr. Snyder that Zorn was innovative like that. Whatever Jay Gruden is doing to coach RG on the art of sliding doesn’t seem to be enough. The Redskins do not have a quarterback coach. Matt LaFluer was swept out with the Shanahans...
