Zorn's long, sad vigil finally ends
Can a coaching funeral last any longer than this one? Even if Jim Zorn, the ultimate optimist, didn't know it, the rest of the world knew he was a goner as far back as Sept. 27. That's when the Washington Redskins lost in Detroit to the Lions to drop to 1-2. It was over then, in Week 3 of a 16-game season. Anything less than at least one win in the playoffs and Zorn was going to be fired the week of Jan. 3, although it was plain to see early on that the Redskins didn't have what it takes to rally.
