Notes from Zorn's Press Conference (Sept. 28)

-Haynesworth has a strained glute, should be fine (I always knew he was a "pain in the ass" )

-We didn't win the one on one battles in coverage

-Lions max protected almost all day

-We flushed Stafford out of the pocket on the two big plays, secondary didn't hold their responsibilities and we paid for it

-In the big picture, things are progressing, we're getting better. It's not showing in the wins. There are high expectations for us. We have high expectations for us

-I don't look back at last year. 2008 is gone. I'm only dealing with 2009

-We have excellent men, great captains in the locker room. Captains are doing a great job keeping our guys together

-Last play, we ran a play that gave us the opportunity to maybe pitch, catch and get in running (???)

-Chad did a nice job in the run game, decent in the passing game, didn't affect my play calling at all

-Malcolm has to improve his playing speed

-We have tremendous talent on this football team and we as coaches have to put the players in the right position and the players have to go out and make the play

***So basically, nothing we didn't really expect him to say***

Zorn needs to get his coaching up to game speed. He still doesn't get it and never will.

I got in late so I missed all the pre-conference discussion with the reporters and there was basically none afterward. That's what I was really looking forward to

You forgot...

Did you meet with Dan last night Zorn...not really?

But we will be spending time together this week. Hum, wonder why

Re: Notes from Zorn's Press Conference (Sept. 28)

Just more "sugar-coating" like usual.

The word of the day is PATHETIC......
Pathetic playcalling....
Pathetic coaching....
Pathetic excuses....
Pathetic effort....

No heart on this team, we are the BIGGEST JOKE IN THE NFL. Rough day to be a Skins fan.

.........what game was he referring to?
AND....you should be ashamed for the AH remark.
AND, AND the lions played without several D starters. Imagine if they had been full force?

Re: Notes from Zorn's Press Conference (Sept. 28)

This seems as good as any place to announce that: there will be a Game Tape review this week, but it probably won't be out until Friday or even Saturday morning. Gotta catch up on those stupid things, whatdya call them...classes.

SCSkinsfan, SmootSmack, and Slingin Sammy will probably more than cover all the big points before then. I'll focus my write-ups on any uncovered points.

Thanks guys.

Re: Notes from Zorn's Press Conference (Sept. 28)

Haynesworth has a strained glute, should be fine (I always knew he was a "pain in the ass" ) What Zorn meant was "Guess he landed on his wallet."

-We didn't win the one on one battles in coverage - Translated "Our secondary got beat like a stray dog at Michael Vicks house."

-Lions max protected almost all day - Translated "We could not pressure a rookie QB."

-We flushed Stafford out of the pocket on the two big plays, secondary didn't hold their responsibilities and we paid for it. Translated - "See the Vick comment".

-In the big picture, things are progressing, we're getting better. It's not showing in the wins. There are high expectations for us. We have high expectations for us. Translated - "I dont get it, the game plan worked on MADDEN NFL 2010!"

-I don't look back at last year. 2008 is gone. I'm only dealing with 2009
Translated "I'd rather not be reminded of finishing poorly last season, and am focused solely on starting poorly this year."

-We have excellent men, great captains in the locker room. Captains are doing a great job keeping our guys together. Translated "They are truly a team on TWITTER to tell the world how bad we don't want it."

-Last play, we ran a play that gave us the opportunity to maybe pitch, catch and get in running (???) Translated - "Saw this play work flawlessly on an 8th grade playground on the way to the stadium, still don't know why it did not work for us. but we will keep it in the playbook and practice it more."

-Chad did a nice job in the run game, decent in the passing game, didn't affect my play calling at all. Translated - "See my MADDEN 2010 comment."

-Malcolm has to improve his playing speed- Translated "Malcolm is SLOW."

-We have tremendous talent on this football team and we as coaches have to put the players in the right position and the players have to go out and make the play. Translated - "We have tremendous talent on this team, and unfortunately the coaching talent is well below the talent level of our squad."

Re: Notes from Zorn's Press Conference (Sept. 28)

Is it me, or does it seem like Zorn always tries to deflect blame from himself. I don't watch many interviews, so my take on him may be out of context.

Zorn seems like the kind of humble guy who knows exactly how to properly handle success, but not failure. A good coach needs to be able to stay medium even if he's losing games he should be winning.

Re: Notes from Zorn's Press Conference (Sept. 28)

-We didn't win the one on one battles in coverage
Then change the one on one match ups during game situations.

-Lions max protected almost all day
Then back off the blitz and put more people in coverage until they minimize protection

-We flushed Stafford out of the pocket on the two big plays, secondary didn't hold their responsibilities and we paid for it
Only twice you created enough pressure to have the QB scramble? Play nickle then

-In the big picture, things are progressing, we're getting better. It's not showing in the wins. There are high expectations for us. We have high expectations for us
In the big picture all we care about are wins. putting points on the board wins games, usually more then your opponant. You don't win you lose your job!

-I don't look back at last year. 2008 is gone. I'm only dealing with 2009
OMG, history repeating itself. Correct last yrs mistakes and you half way there Zorn

-We have excellent men, great captains in the locker room. Captains are doing a great job keeping our guys together
Yep everyone is on the same losing page. Piss poor performance equals piss poor results

-Last play, we ran a play that gave us the opportunity to maybe pitch, catch and get in running (???)
WTF? This dreamed up play was all you had? Throw from the 36 to the 30yrd line and hope someone beats 8 defenders and gets into the end zone? Maybe if the pass was to the 5 yrd line but not from the 30 yrd line.

-Chad did a nice job in the run game, decent in the passing game, didn't affect my play calling at all
You can snow ball us on this one Zorn, we wouldn't know cause you failed to even attempt a run to the right side.

-Malcolm has to improve his playing speed
Thanks for this tid bit of info. However I don't think its his speed we have a problem with...it's more like getting the ball to him period.

-We have tremendous talent on this football team and we as coaches have to put the players in the right position and the players have to go out and make the play
Blah, Blah, Blah, SSDD, we keep hearing how "It's their job to get players in the right position for them to make a play"....guess what your failing at your job. Usually people get fired over $#*! like this. Atleast Norv did.

"If" they have any clue as to what the hell is going wrong we should not presume they would share it with us cause other teams would use it against us. but atleast fix the damn problem. Last yrs first 8 games went well...why? figure that out and utilize it. Look at the last 8 games and see if it's the same crap carried over. Just fix the problem. We have very few injuries this yr so that can not be used as an excuse.

Maybe benching the QB for one week will wake up the rest of the team and light a fire. Lets see if Collins can actually hit his targets in stride, maybe look off the safety and make a play, maybe not stare down his WR's, maybe not fumble the snap, maybe actually survey the whole field prior to throwing to a dump off route.
