The Washington Redskins are currently 1-2, with their one win being a two-point win over the lowly touted St. Louis Rams. They even lost to the Detroit Lions, ending the Lions' 19-game losing streak.

When you barely beat the Rams, lose to the Lions, and have Albert Haynesworth and London Fletcher in your front seven, you have problems.

Redskins head coach Jim Zorn didn't raise any heads last season as the team went 8-8 and missed the playoffs, and after losing to the Lions, the only direction heads will be turning is way down. 

Based on Daniel Snyder's history, you have to figure that if the Redskins don't win 10 games or make the playoffs, Zorn is probably gone. 

It's never too early to talk about replacements for Zorn, is it?

For some reason, when I was thinking of guys the Redskins would hire, the name Mike Leach kept coming to my head. 

Now it seems unlikely that this would happen, for two main reasons. First of all, Leach is one year into a five year extension with Texas Tech. Also, since the Steve Spurrier hiring, it seems very unlikely that Daniel Snyder would hire another college coach.

But we are talking about Daniel Snyder and anything can happen.

Tell me what you think and if this is a likely situation or not.
