Saw an article on fanhouse about comparing sacks to the time the QB held on to the ball to determine who is more to blame, the QB or OL - so thought I would take a look and wasn't totally surprised with who was at the top:

HOLDING ON
The 10 quarterbacks who have held the ball the longest on their sacks
Quarterback Average Time Of Sack No. ofSacks
Jason Campbell 3.66 3
Tom Brady 3.6 1
Jay Cutler 3.51 3
Mark Sanchez 3.51 2
Brady Quinn 3.29 9
Kyle Orton 3.27 3
Trent Edwards 3.26 6
JaMarcus Russell 3.22 3
Chad Pennington 3.2 6
Kurt Warner 3.07 3

Just thought it was an interesting stat to back up the main fault of his play so far. Another interesting point though is the 2 guys the FO wanted to replace him are #3 and #4

As said in the article, pretty small sample but still interesting.

Great video of Zorn wired in the Rams game on Redskins.com (sorry cant link it
opens in separate window) It gives a good insight into his playcalling with some
good takes of the redzone drive where Portis throws incomplete definitley worth a look.

I saw a link to that on extremeskins so mailed it home to watch it there, everyone on that board said it was a great incite in to not only Zorn but JC as well, looking forward to seeing it later.

Difference between Campbell and a lot of those guys is Campbell doesn't or won't slide to buy his time, he just sits and his wind-up is so slow.

However, I'll say this, as much as I have been on Campbell's back for over a year now, if Zorn does not take the stabilizers off the bike then I'm reluctant to blamce JC too much, Zorn needs to let JC go out and try and win some games, not try not to lose them.

I watched the vid Wuds is talking about and it really is a great insight in to what happened last week, linked here:

http://blog.redskins.com/2009/09/24/...zorn-up-close/

Couple of points that stuck out for me, Zorn telling JC not to be careful, to just go for it, and also one play where they dialled up a deep shot down field to Santata but the pass protection broke down.

Also just hearing what Zorn was thinking running it in the Red Zone, effectively just loosing faith after dropping two TD passes.

It certainly does reaffirm the I like Zorn, they just need to get it together this Sunday as a team.

I agree Zorn is a likeable character and he does look like he 9is enjoying himself out there but just because one play never happened because of poor blocking, I still think he is generally playing it too safe. You rarely see this team play action in short yardage, and crazy pass plays by none QB's are not the way to go. You expect to see two of them a seaosn, we've seen two in two weeks and they have proved costly.
