2008 RESULTS/SCHEDULE
 
WASHINGTON REDSKINSWEEK SEVEN VS. CLEVELAND BROWNS
On February 10, 2008, Redskins Owner Daniel M. Snyderwelcomed Jim Zorn as the franchise’s 27th head coach, ush-ering in a new chapter in Redskins history.Zorn, an NFLquarterback from 1976-87 and an NFLassis-tant coach the last 11 years, brings an approach that he de-scribes as “constant andconsistent” in terms of how hemanages coaches and players.“My hope is to hold the tradi-tions and the fight that the Red-skins have always had in highregard,” Zorn said. “I am goingto try in my best effort to con-tinue that tradition in my tenurehere as the head footballcoach.”Zorn reached the top of hisprofession in an exciting coupleof weeks.Zorn was originally hired as theRedskins’offensive coordinatoron January 26, 2008. He im-pressed Snyder and ExecutiveVice President of Football Oper-ations Vinny Cerrato so muchthat, two weeks later, they decided to offer him the headcoaching job. He succeeds Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs.“We wanted a head coach that had great character, in-tegrity, leadership skills, smarts, drive, energy and pas-sion,” said Snyder. “In Coach Zorn, we ended up with aperson that has all of those attributes, plus much, muchmore.”Zorn joined the Redskins from the Seattle Seahawkswhere he spent the last seven seasons (2001-07) as quarter-backs coach.The Seahawks won four consecutive divisiontitles, made five straight playoff appearances and posted afranchise-best 13-3 record and first-ever Super Bowl ap-pearance in 2005.During his time in Seattle, Zorn worked with SeahawksHead Coach Mike Holmgren and Offensive Coordinator GilHaskell in implementing the team’s offense while also con-tinuing in the development of the team’s quarterbacks.Zorn tutored QB Matt Hasselbeck who set a franchiserecord with 3,841 passing yards in 2003. Hasselbeck has be-come the franchise’s most-efficient passer (85.1 rating)while joining Zorn as the only franchise quarterback to passfor 3,000-plus yards in three consecutive seasons.In 2007, Hasselbeck set Seattle single-season marks forattempts (562), completions (352) and yards (3,966). Healso threw for a career-high 28 touchdowns en route to histhird Pro Bowl selection.In 2006, Hasselbeck started just 12 games after sufferinga knee injury in the middle of the season and finished theyear with a fractured finger on his left hand. In the interim,Zorn helped with the development of Seneca Wallace, whocompleted 58% of his passes, tossed eight touchdowns,posted a 76.2 passer rating and a 2-2 record in the most ex-tensive playing time of his four-year career.In 2005, Zorn guided Hasselbeck to his second Pro Bowlappearance and the NFC’s top-rated passer (4th NFL) witha 98.2 rating en route to Super Bowl XL. Hasselbeck directedthe NFL’s second-ranked offense to a franchise-record 11consecutive wins and in his four December games he postedthe fourth-best passer rating in NFLhistory (135.5), includ-ing 10 touchdowns to one interception, and completed 76%of his passes.Zorn’s 2002 campaign had TrentDilfer open the season as thestarter and concluded with Hassel-beck under center. Seattle’s pass-ing attack ranked third in the NFLaveraging 254.9-yards a game.Hasselbeck finished the seasonranked first in the NFC with a 63.7completion percentage and secondin the NFC with a 87.8 passer rat-ing. Hasselbeck passed for morethan 300 yards four times, includ-ing a franchise-record 449 in theseason finale at San Diego. Has-selbeck joined Zorn as the onlySeahawks quarterbacks to pass forat least 300 yards in back to backgames. Zorn accomplished thefeat in 1979 and 1981.Zorn’s 2001 quarterback crop in-cluded Holmgren’s hand-picked starter Hasselbeck, SuperBowl XXXV quarterback Dilfer and 2000 part-time starterBrock Huard. Zorn groomed Hasselbeck and helped thefirst-year starter to become the AFC’s fifth-rated passer onthird-down with a rating of 80.6.Zorn joined the Seahawks as quarterbacks coach afterserving in the same capacity with the Detroit Lions (1998-00). He was instrumental in the development of rookiequarterback Charlie Batch in 1998. Batch’s 88.3 passer rat-ing that season ranks as the fourth-highest rookie mark inNFLhistory. Zorn broke into the NFLcoaching ranks as anoffensive assistant for the Seahawks in 1997.Zorn spent eight seasons in the collegiate ranks before hispro debut. He spent two seasons (1995-96) as quarterbackscoach at the University of Minnesota and three seasons(1992-94) as the offensive coordinator at Utah State. Hisfirst collegiate coaching job was as an offensiveassistant/quarterbacks coach at Boise State from 1989-91.His playing career began in the Seahawks’inaugural 1976season, starting all 14 games at quarterback. He went onto play nine seasons for the Seahawks. After departing Seat-tle, he finished his playing career with the Green Bay Pack-ers (1985), the Canadian Football League’s Winnipeg BlueBombers (1986) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1987).Along with Jacksonville’s Jack Del Rio, Zorn had the longestNFLplaying career (11 years) among the league’s 32 headcoaches.Zorn is one of only eight players inducted to the Sea-hawks’Ring of Honor. He was named NFC Offensive Rookieof the Year (1976) and ranks second in the Seahawks’recordbook behind Dave Krieg in yards (20,122), completions(1,593), attempts (2,992), and touchdowns (107). His threeconsecutive 3,000-yard seasons were tops in team history,since broken by Hasselbeck in 2005, and he was the firstSeattle quarterback to record back-to-back 300-plus yardgames–a feat he accomplished twice.
