Ernie Zampese nabbed too!!

Postby BossHog » Tue Jan 13, 2004 12:21 am

Renowned offensive guru Ernie Zampese turned down regular offers to join the Washington Redskins during Joe Gibbs's first tenure with the team from 1981 to 1992. But Zampese -- who was part of the famous Air Coryell offense in San Diego on a staff that included Gibbs -- will reunite with him the second time around, according to two NFL sources.


Wow, this is going to be some coaching staff.

Ties in nicely with my article on Gibbs tomorrow... which will actually be up soon for the nighthawks. (Actually -- posted now.)

Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

From the post article...

For two decades, Zampese molded offensive juggernauts -- mostly as an offensive coordinator -- with the San Diego Chargers (1979-86), Los Angeles Rams (1987-93), Dallas Cowboys (1994-97) and New England Patriots (1998-99). He returned to the Rams, now in St. Louis, as a consultant in 2002 but had a stroke that September.


Zampese is a true offensive 'genius', and though his age makes him a little less suited to manning the sidelines & calling the offense alone... between himself, Buges and Gibbs... that's a HUGE amount of offensive brainpower.
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

I hope Coach Gibbs get a word in edgewise with all these different voices. He must be thrilled to death.

I think that some of these are there just for Gibbs to pick their brains and to tweak his schemes for the newer era - like the "chess match" he and Williams had with him drawing up offenses and Williams drawing up defenses that would stop them.
