In the world of the Washington Redskins, everything moves at warp speed. You would think Jim Zorn has been the Redskins head coach for three or four years now with all the extreme ups and downs this season.
So Zorn walked into yesterday's press conference fresh off a humiliating loss in Cincinnati that all but ended Washington's playoff hopes. The weary Zorn stepped up to the microphone and promptly blamed himself for the team's woes:
"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 for some of these games that haven't turned out like we planned."
"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."
Zorn has been through it all this season. His hiring as the head coach left many scratching their heads. He then opened the year with a dud of a game in New York and everyone felt he was in over his head. Next thing you know, the Redskins won six of seven games and owned one of the best records in the NFL.
