Ravens looking for new QB coach

The Ravens are looking for a new quarterbacks coach after Hue Jackson agreed to become the Oakland Raiders' offensive coordinator.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the team is expected to look at Jim Zorn and Al Saunders for a position that will be key in the development of second-year quarterback Joe Flacco.

Zorn, who was fired as the Washington Redskins' head coach after two last-place finishes, has expressed interest in the Ravens job.

Saunders, 62, who was the Ravens' offensive consultant this season, is a renowned offensive mind who has coached in the NFL for 27 seasons.

'Foggy' Portis to sit out again

The Washington Times reports that Redskins running back Clinton Portis will sit out for the second straight game, as Portis is still apparently feeling the effects of a concussion suffered against the Atlanta Falcons on Nov. 8.

Coach Jim Zorn said in the article that Portis is still unable to practice. Until he can practice with the team, allowing Zorn to evaluate his progress, Zorn will hold him out of the game as a precautionary measure.

"I want to see him practice, and I want to see him have those days where when he practices he doesn't have residual problems," Zorn said, as quoted in the article.

Zorn said Portis "is just foggy enough" to warrant holding him out of practice.

Campbell and Zorn on hot seat

Redskins owner Daniel Snyder is on his fifth head coach in 10 seasons. He's also had six different quarterbacks start season openers.

According to the Washington Examiner, nobody will be more scrutinized than Jason Campbell and Jim Zorn.

Here's the list of coaches on the street: Mike Shanahan, Jon Gruden, Bill Cowher, Mike Holmgren, Tony Dungy. A bad season by Campbell, or the offense in general, could lead to a change in the two most important spots on a team: coach and quarterback.
