Zorn-Portis Clash A Predictable Combustion
To many around Redskins Park, it always seemed like an imperfect marriage, the coupling of the outspoken running back who had been coddled and was accustomed to taking himself out of games under Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs, and the rookie head coach with a unique bent for candor and unflinching critiques of his players. Sprinkle in a sputtering offense, key injuries and a five-week slide to the periphery of the playoff spectrum, and this week's eruption of Clinton Portis toward Jim Zorn was predictable.
