Torn by the Trials, Zorn Still Finds the Joy
By the time Jim Zorn took off his burgundy Washington Redskins jacket and pulled off his ski cap last Sunday, exchanging them for a blazer, tie and trench coat, his stare was blank, far-off. He grabbed a Snapple, walked from the locker room and rolled his khaki travel bag to one of the team buses parked and running underneath Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. The drive to the airport and the flight back to Dulles International Airport came only an hour or so after the Redskins' fifth loss in six games, yet the Sunday night and Monday morning quarterbacking was already under way. The list of people Zorn felt responsible to after such a swoon -- owner Daniel Snyder not least among them -- seemed endless.
