Loverro: Rocky start for Redskins is simply cartoonish
Sherman Lewis said he is not looking for a job. “I’m here to help,” the Washington Redskins’ new offensive consultant said.
Sherman Smith said he doesn’t know why Sherman Lewis is at Redskin Park.
“I don’t think he’s going to tell us something we don’t already know,” the offensive coordinator said.
I think there is too much Shermanizing going on at Redskin Park.
There are two Shermans and counting at Redskin Park, which begs the question: Does that mean coach Jim Zorn is Mr. Peabody? The scene at Redskin Park this week - following a win over Tampa Bay, albeit a pathetic win - was cartoonish.
On Tuesday, the Redskins hired Lewis, a respected offensive consultant who has been out of football for five years and was calling bingo games at a senior citizen center.
“He’s another set of eyes,” vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato said.
So what happens when Zorn looks into Jason Campbell’s eyes, as he said he did last week with his team down 10-0 after the quarterback threw two first-half interceptions, to determine whether he should bench Campbell?
Will Lewis then look into Zorn’s eyes? Will the Redskins hire an optical coach? Is the rallying cry this year “Vision Quest”?
Two days after the hiring, it was announced that defensive coordinator Greg Blache, who the week before declared he would take responsibility for the team’s woeful play and that everyone “could throw him under the bus,” would no longer answer questions from reporters this season.
“For Greg, he’s really needed a break,” Zorn said. “I would put it as personal reasons. It is a needed break for him. That’s why I’ve allowed it.”
I suspect the personal reasons are that Blache felt he couldn’t keep his mouth shut about the lunacy taking place these days at Redskin Park. I suspect there are all sorts of scenarios in play.
There should be all sorts of scenarios in play.
In four games this year, Washington has scored just 13 first-half points, the only touchdown coming on Hunter Smith’s fake field goal run.
The Redskins have given up more than 100 rushing yards to every team they’ve played - three of them, the Rams, Lions and Bucs, among the worst in football.
