With one final, predictable fourth-quarter collapse, the circus that was the Jim Zorn Era in Washington came to a close Sunday in sunny San Diego. The only surprising thing about the latest as-if-scripted loss was that there might be anyone left out there who was actually surprised.

Cerrato didn't do Zorn any favors but Jim's game day management and playcalling (when it was in his lap) were atrocious.

That fake field goal call on Monday Night Football against the Giants may be the decade's most infamous play just as Gus head-butting the wall was in the late 1990's.
