A team source just confirmed that Sherman Lewis — in town less than two weeks in his role of offensive consultant — will be the Redskins’ new play caller.

Jim Zorn gave up the duties during a post-game meeting with front office chief Vinny Cerrato.


A source earlier tonight confirmed my theory that Sherman Smith is a candidate to call plays but the choice would be Lewis since he was the “fresh set of eyes” two weeks ago, somebody who was recommended/thrust upon Zorn in an effort to spark the offense.

Lewis called the plays for Green Bay in 1999 and also contributed to the Minnesota and Detroit play calling before leaving coaching after the 2004 season.

This can’t be a surprise because Lewis was the only person on the offensive staff with NFL play calling experience besides Zorn.
