The Washington Post reported Friday that Bill Lazor will be leaving Washington to becomme the Seahawks quarterbacks coach. The Seahawks have not announced any move, but could do so next week. Lazor would fill the spot on the staff previously held by Jim Zorn, who went to Washington to become offensive coordinator.
Here's what the Post reported Friday: "Quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor will be leaving the team to take the same position with the Seattle Seahawks, league sources said. Lazor, who was not going to retain that title in Washington, will replace Zorn in Seattle." Here's a link to the story.
Here's a link to Lazor's biography on Washington's team Web site.

Great we go from a legend to who? And how much of an impact was he in Washington? C'mon Washington's passing attack sucked last year.

"Jim Zorn, who went to Washington to become offensive coordinator." Should be update to read, "Jim Zorn, who went to Washington to become the head coach."

This is a bad hire. Has the U of Buffalo ever won a game? And the Skins Qbs have been horrible over the last few years. Hopelully Hass rips this guy a new one and runs him out.

Last time I checked, the Redskins have a very promising young QB in Jason Campbell, who after this past season has proven to be a future star in the NFL. His injury late in the season obviously hurt his production, but Tod Collin's, a life long backup who last started with Kansas City in the 90's came in and did a fine job leading the Redskins to the playoffs. That's right, the Redskins are a playoff team. Perhaps Bill Lazor should get some credit for fine tuning Jason Campbell before he left and helping Tod Collins lead the Redskins to the playoffs. No one thought the Redskins were playoff bound after losing Campbell, but they made it.
So really, is it Bill Lazor's fault that the Redskin's offense is more run oriented around Clinton Portis and has been for many years? Is it Bill Lazorís fault that he was forced to work with an over the hill veteran (Brunell Ė now retired), an inexperienced QB (Campbell) and a life long third stringer (Collins)? Is it Bill Lazor's fault that his track record is limited? The guy is only 36 years old, what more do you want from him, a Super Bowl ring? I mean Zorn went from QB coach in Seattle to head coach of the Redskins! No one outside of Seattle has ever heard of the guy. So this assumption that he is a legend is by far absurd. Who was Steve Spagnoulo before he lead the Giants defense to the Super Bowl this year? Thatís right he was linebacker coach with the Eagles. Iím sure everyone thought he would accomplish what he did with Giants D this year. You see, everyone is a no one before they become a someone. Give the guy a chance before you criticize him. He hasn't had the job for a week and yet he's being bashed as if he's failed already.

I totally agree with Bizzhub. Bill did not have much to work with in Washington. He made alot out of nothing with the Quarterback's in the last couple of years. Lets see this season.
