ALREADY BORED WITH SPECULATION ABOUT REDSKINS’ JIM ZORN’S JOB SECURTIY, THE WASHINGTON POST TAKES ON COACH FRIDGE

Like the rest of the media in the Capitol of the Free World, the Washington Post is obsessed with the drama that will someday unfold between Redskin’s owner Danny “Danny Warbucks” Snyder and head coach Jim Zorn now that Washington’s NFL franchise is 1-2 including a loss to the woeful Detroit Lions losers of 184,000 straight games prior to last Sunday. (And yes, your English teacher might say that was a run-on sentence, but she isn’t here now is she?)

But as entertaining as playing “fire the coach” game has been for the past two weeks for the wags following the Skins (the low scoring victory over the lowly Rams didn’t help), two Washington Post writers and, at least, one headline writer are now speculating that Ralph Friedgen’s job is in jeopardy after a similar 1-2 start for the Maryland Terrapins.

Last year, the venerable newspaper went through a similar exercise with basketball coach Gary Williams and an assistant to A.D. Debbie Yow fed the media fire with some poorly thought-out comments. Williams survived easily due to tremendous fan/alum/donor loyalty and a late season winning streak including a victory over the eventual 2009 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Champions University of North Carolina Tar Heels.

Of course, Williams was sitting chilly with a rock-solid hole card – a National Championship – something the Fridge doesn’t enjoy.
