Loverro: Time to give Collins a shot at QB
Question of the Day
Jim Zorn repeated the same things at his news conference Monday that he has said week after week in this wreck of a season.
“I ask myself questions,” the coach of the Washington Redskins said. “What are we doing? Are we doing it right? Do we have the elements we need to be a successful offense? … The answers to those questions are sometimes yes and sometimes I am changing.”
But what does Zorn mean by change? A little tinkering in playcalling?
Zorn claims the Redskins are close to turning things around, that the difference between success and failure for this team is just one play here or there.
If that were the case, tinkering indeed would be in order.
But that belief is delusion. What is needed is not tinkering but a wrecking ball.
Major change needs to be on the table if the Redskins are to have any chance of salvaging a season headed - at best - toward a 5-11 finish.
What needs to be on the table is a change at quarterback.
Yes, Jason Campbell is just one item on a long list of things gone wrong for the Redskins.
But executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato already has done his damage, and he doesn’t seem likely to leave anytime soon. And as of Tuesday, Zorn was still at Redskin Park.
So if Zorn is asking questions, who should play quarterback certainly is a reasonable one.
Why not Todd Collins?
It’s not as if the Redskins are failing despite strong efforts from Campbell: He threw for fewer than 200 yards in his past two starts and in five of his past eight in the regular season.
Zorn said on his radio show Tuesday he is not considering benching Campbell.
“I don’t think there is a quarterback need to even have that discussion,” he said.
