    Good luck Zorn!!!!!! Flacco will be a better QB in 2010, no doubt about it.

    Wish Zorn the best,
    but it's strange that a WCO coach is now in a non WCO system.

    That will be an interesting situation to check on from time to time, however, I am glad that Zorn landed on his feet somewhere. Best of luck Coach J.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    Same here. And hopefully, now he doesn't have to move his family, just have a long commute.

    From Head Coach to QB Coach. That's a pretty signicant drop. Kinda sad for him but it will be interesting to see how well Flacco does next year.

    I have a feeling he understands his limitations now after his experience in DC and is happy to have a new job.

    Glad he found somewhere to go. He's a good guy, just didn't know what the hell he was doing coaching wise, at least it seemed. I wish we could have kept him here as a QB coach, but I doubt he would have accepted.

    Best of luck to Zorn.

    But he's the QB coach.

    I would think he'd be more working on Flacco's footwork, throwing motion, evading pressure etc.

    That kind of stuff doesn't change from a WCO to a non-WCO offense.

    And I keep reading in articles that Zorn is quite familiar with the Ravens' offense. Anyone know why? None of the articles explains it.

    Best of luck to Mr. Zorn. I really hope he has more success there than he had in Washington. Having said that, I hope he doesn't have too much success because I CAN'T STAND the Ravens.

    Yeah, but you know, some people are just meant to be certain things.

    Capt Kirk is a starship commander

    James Bond is a spy

    Jim Zorn showed the past couple of years that he's a QB coach.

    Hope he does well there

    Zorn is a good guy, but there is also 2.4 million reasons why he didn't have to work next year. Sure Dan is happy to a degree since the amount of his salary with Ravens will be deducted from the $2.4 million.

    Zorn was promoted here to the level of his incompetence.

    At 54 he was an established quarterbacks coach in Seattle and merited recognition for that, but what Snyder and Cerrato tried to build him up into was definitely not the real Zorn.

    Zorn is a 'background' guy, a quiet Xs and Os guy like Norv that is best with a screamer or disciplinarian as the head coach.

    In Baltimore he won't have to worry. Ozzie Newsome is a VERY strong GM and Harbaugh is a 14 hour a day worker who is quite intense in his own right.

    Back to what is comfortable to him.
