Redskins coach Jim Zorn has become a lightning rod of controversy in Washington during his first season, and Marty Schottenheimer and Steve Spurrier are probably wondering what took so long. Leonard Shapiro wrote a column in the Washington Post which is quick to point out that Zorn is just a rookie who needs to learn how to tone down his act.
In essence, the team’s rookie head coach admitted that (with apologies to Dan Jenkins) he, his own self had been a major problem that day, and definitely wasn’t helping his reeling team, now losers of four of its last five games. Good for Zorn being so candid, just as he’s been virtually since the day he was named to replace Joe Gibbs. But bad for his football team that his emotions got the best of him that afternoon. MORE
