Trade Zorn for Phillips?
CLICK TO REACT
Here's a radical solution for the problems in Washington, Dallas and Tennessee: don't fire these head coaches, trade them.
Deliver Jim Zorn from Snyder-Cerrato hell, send him to the Titans to see if he can do for Vince Young what he has for Jason Campbell. Of course, that's not such a great deal for Tenessee, but they're 0-6, so beggars can't be choosers.
Fill Zorn's spot in Washington with Wade Phillips. Sherman Lewis can still call all the plays Dan Snyder wants him to call, and Phillips can handle the defense. When you've dealt for three years with Jerry Jones, Snyder can't bee too much of a shock, can he?
Lastly, send Jeff Fisher to the Cowboys who, at 3-2, still have talent enough and a chance to actually go somewhere. If the Titans fired Fisher now or any time before the spring, he stands a decent chance of ending up in Dallas anyway.
Changing coaches mid-season is not a solution in the NFL, it's an act of desperation. In fact, Fisher is the only truly successful interim coach in recent history, and most never do well enough to get hired full-time.
Of the three dire situations mentioned above, only one -- the circus in Washington -- is truly desperate. There are worse things than one losing season, as Redskins fans are learning all too well.
