Vinny Cerrato Said Jim Zorn Had Too Big An Ego

I'm sure the last thing you, my fellow Redskins fan, is interested in hearing is Vinny Cerrato talk about the problem with Jim Zorn. To say that neither man is a sympathetic figure is to say that the sky is blue. But alas, because it's always fun to mock these guys, let's just point out Cerrato's critique of Zorn's tenure in D.C. during his long appearance on "The Mike Wise Show" on 106.7 The Fan.

When we started out, we're 6-2 and the guy's doing a good job," Cerrato said. "But then I think ego got into play and then he stopped listening to coaches, became a celebrity. I mean, that's when Rush Limbaugh's on the sideline, he had all these people on the sideline. Give me a break. Just worry about Clinton Portis, Chris Samuels. Worry about the next team. To me, that's what happened. We're 6-2, we're on a run, and all you people in the newspaper were saying Dan finally got it right, hired a great coach, blah blah blah, and then see how fast you guys turned?

Cerrato then railed on Zorn's lack of media savvy, saying he gave away too much information to the press and unnecessarily ripped the players at times. Yes, you read that right. Vinny Cerrato of all people is criticizing Jim Zorn for his lack of media savvy. This is the same Vinny Cerrato, right?

Cerrato concluded that the hiring of Zorn was a "mistake," though not as big a mistake as signing Adam Archuleta. Don't ever change, Vinny.
