Now that the Redskins have officially been eliminated from the playoffs, Sunday's matchup against the 49ers is more 2009 preseason game than 2008 regular-season finale. San Francisco interim head coach Mike Singletary has probably earned the full-time gig after going 4-4 since taking over for Mike Nolan back in Week 7.
Washington rookie coach Jim Zorn started 6-2, and nearly two months later, is sitting at 8-7. Things got so bad that rumors surfaced that his job might be in jeopardy, and after last week's loss to the Bengals, he called himself the "worst coach in America."
But for as different as Singletary and Zorn seem, they're both young head coaches trying to win football games. And they both have interesting ways to motivate their teams. Singletary's halftime trou-dropping episode is well documented, and the Sports Bog's Dan Steinberg gives us a glimpse behind Zorn's proverbial coaching curtain.
