It's the approach, not the coach

Q: After two unsuccessful seasons, Washington Redskins Coach Jim Zorn was fired from his job this week. How hard is it for people to recover from being labeled a failure? Do you think Zorn will get another chance to coach in the NFL?

I do not believe that Jim Zorn is a failure. Zorn may not get another job as an NFL coach, but he inherited a team that had problems. Any team that has seven coaches in nine years is a problem.

These problems will not go away overnight. I believe the owner of the team needs to stop micromanaging the coach and give them a chance. There is so much pressure working under Dan Snyder, how can anyone succeed?

Jim Zorn has had a successful career until now. He is a talented athlete and coach and he will recover. He has integrity and has never bad-mouthed the team, the owner or the fans. Norv Turner was fired by Dan Snyder and he is doing a great job with the San Diego Chargers. They might even win the superbowl!

For a business venture to be successful, it has to focus on good intentions. If Dan Snyder intended to bring great football to Washington D.C., he would be successful. Instead, it seems as if his intentions are only to make money. He overcharges for tickets, parking, food, drinks and even sues season-ticket holders who don't want to renew. We don't need a new coach, we need a new approach!
