Jim Zorn held his weekly press conference a little over an hour ago, and had some pretty honest — and accurate — things to say about himself and the team. I didn’t actually witness the presser, but I’m going to imagine tears streaming down his face while saying this:
“It hurts. I feel like the worst coach in America. [The players] risk a lot. They put out tremendous effort, tremendous emotion to go out and play. We can win some of these games. I have a hard time looking at the talent and just saying that’s [the problem] and moving on.”
There, there Zorn. There, there, there, there, there. Don’t beat yourself up. You’re only the worst employed coach in America.
There was more:
“I’m not sure I could ask any more of the players,” Zorn said. “These last six games we’ve asked a lot of them and they’ve responded well.
“I have to look at myself. It’s all about me. I need to check my plan of attack and my staff, we need to reevaluate. … We have to take resopnosibility [sic] for some of these games that haven’t turned out like we planned.”
Well, you could ask them not to line-up in illegal formations, hold or block in the back, but yeah, the rest is pretty much on you. Zorn best get things reevaluated pretty quickly, because if he loses the next two, I’m fairly certain those will be his last two as head coach of the Redskins.
