Washington Redskins' Offensive Woes? Maybe It's Just Too Many Systems....

Question is it possible the the philosophy of finding a QB to fit the system is the problem?

It has been suggested  that our present group of QB's may not be suited to run the WCO. But we must also consider that Zorn is running his own version of the WCO a hybrid.

So is it possible that instead of trying to force a group of players who have little experience in this system they should either put together a system to fit the talents of the players they have. Or give whoever is going to be the coach the authority and opportunity to gather the players to fit his system.

Campbell is a perfect example of a player whose true skills have likely not been realized due to the fact he has never been able to fully get  acclimated to any one offense not even in college.

This is true for the rest of the offense also in the last three seasons they have went from running Gibbs offense to Saunders 700 pg playbook to Zorn's newly created WC hybrid

All this with an aging O-Line best suited for Gibbs smash mouth style. With no viable depth anywhere across the line except Heyer.

A RB in Portis who when he made his big splash was more of a slasher-scat back combination in Denver. And since arriving in Washington has had to bulk up to be able to handle the rigors of having to run mostly between the tackles. In turn Portis has lost the home run aspect of his game and some stamina.

A WR corps that has taken us back to the days of the "smurfs" paired with a couple of youngsters who where just not ready for a system with such attention to detail.

And then there is Campbell in four years at Auburn four different coordinators. And then more of the same with the Redskins only with much higher expectations.

So with the constant call for consistency the question is has it really been heard? There is a real possibility that this will start all over again next season if Zorn is not successful this season.

There are too many "fly by the seat of your pants" decisions made around Redskin Park.

There seems to be NO PLAN to follow or stick to, No formula. Everything seems reactionary and that's no way to build a winning franchise.
