Zorn on radio

← return to Redskins 360

Redskins coach Jim Zorn has wrapped up his weekly appearance on 980. Here are some of the highlights:

Not much in the way of news from the session, but Zorn confirmed what he’s been saying for the last week — the punt return set up is by-committee with Randle El, Moss and Hall and he hasn’t decided who will get the first shot.

*On the punt return situation:

“I’m going to try and get Santana Moss one or two punt returns in every game and I started to get DeAngelo Hall more involved as well. As punts go, we’re going to get anywhere from 5-6 punt returns, maybe 7-8, and if we can use all three of those guys, that’s really what I want to have done.”

*On Mike Holmgren’s comments in support of Zorn:

“I appreciate Mike. He’s a seasoned coach. He’s been around the block and been in the league as a coach for a lot of years. One of the things he mentioned was that it makes me look foolish and that’s hard for me because nobody wants to be a fool. One of the things I’m trying to do is work within the program and work hard with our coaches and playesrs and try to create an edge that we can go out and be productive with. I hope I don’t look like foolish in a Redskins coaching outfit. He’s in full support of me and he knows what my capabilities are.”

*On Jason Campbell not scrambling much against Philadelphia:

“What happened in this last game, we had Jason ready to do what we were talking about yet he sprained his ankle in the first quarter and he hobbled through the game. He was taken out of that particular part of the game he does well for a big, tall guy – he can create a positive play out of something that has broken down.”

*On any playbook changes during bye week:

“Some of them are scheme. We are venturing to different things so we can create that needed execution and that consistency up and down the field. We’re getting a lot of it, we’re just not getting it at every moment.”

*On Sherm Lewis’ transition:

“I think we know each other better. Our coaching staff is still putting in the game plan. He’s still the play caller. He interjects his ideas. We’re putting in things just like we did before he was here and he’s been more involved because he’s gotten himself up to speed with concepts and terminology.”
