Holmgren weighs in on Redskins

Back from his European vacation, former Seattle coach Mike Holmgren has finally weighed in on Jim Zorn being stripped of the play calling dutiess.

Zorn was Holmgren’s long-time quarterbacks coach with the Seahawks.

Appearing on a Chicago radio show today, Holmgren disagreed with the way Zorn is being treated. The quotes were transcribed and displayed on NFL.com.

Let’er rip Mike:

“I thought it was very unfair to put him in the position. The position they put Jim in, it shouldn’t happen. You can be upset with me as a play-caller or how the team’s going, (then) fire me. But don’t do that. Don’t pull the rug out from under me, tie my hands, make me look foolish … take away what I came there for to do in the first place. Don’t do that.”

Holmgren added: “That bothered me a lot. Jim Zorn is one of the nice people. I’m a nice guy, but I’m not that nice. Jim Zorn is really a nice man. What they did, I did not like it at all.”

What The Danny and The Vinny are discovering is that Zorn has a lot of friends in this league who are having no trouble ripping them for the decision.
