So I’m definitely not a fan of the Washington Redskins. But, living in Virginia, and going to UVa, I know plenty of people that are ‘Skins fans. I still, to this day, don’t understand why anyone would be a fan of the Redskins, but everybody can root for whoever they want to.
Anyway, all Redskins fans should be extremely happy now, as Jim Zorn, the Redskins’ coach for the past two seasons, was fired today. Zorn, who led the Redskins to a 12-20 record over these past two seasons, has been hated on by ‘Skins fans and non-fans alike.
This season, the ‘Skins went 4-12, which was the team’s worst record in 15 years. Pitiful. Their final loss came yesterday to the San Diego Chargers, with a score of 23-20. The Chargers, who had already clinched a playoff spot and were playing their backups as a result, were still good enough to beat the Redskins. Then again, it doesn’t take much these days.
Mike Shanahan, former Super Bowl-winning coach of the Denver Broncos, is said to be the favorite to assume the Redskins’ coaching vacancy.
