Joe Gibbs is a Hall of Fame coach, but he was very careful not to criticize an opponent or one of his own players. Gibbs was from the old school of not giving the opposition bulletin board material.
Jim Zorn is a different breed. While Gibbs would’ve talked about all the good things the Redskins had done in getting to 3-0 in preseason , Zorn spent a lot of time in his day-after briefing, pointing out all their errors, specifically those by starting quarterback Jason Campbell.
It’s refreshingly honest and gives the media, the fans and the players a more realistic view of the Redskins. The question is how Zorn’s candor will play if the Redskins start 1-4 against their rough early schedule and are in need of some Gibbsian storking.
