Washington Redskins coach Jim Zorn revealed that he was devastated by Sunday night’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys in what will likely be his final home game with the team.
“The hardest thing for me is to watch our team lose to that team because of the division rivalry and seeing too many blue jerseys having a good time in our stadium,” Zorn said after the game. “It’s devastating to not win a division game. It’s awful.”
He also seemed flat out disgusted by the Redskins lack of offensive production.
“We could not put a drive together,” the lame duck coach said. “I cannot remember getting in the red zone. I think we got to the 23 (yard line).”
Zorn also spoke about the controversy surrounding Albert Haynesworth the past week.
“He voiced his opinion. It was unfortunate,” the coach told reporters. “It was out of frustration out of what we feel today… not winning. I think we handled it. It was said, discussed and put to rest.”
But was it a distraction?
“I don’t think there were any more distractions than we’ve had in the past seven or eight weeks.”
Speaking of distractions, it’s hard for the team and Zorn to overlook all of the rumored coaching changes coming at the end of the season.
“I’m not going to concern myself at this time with speculation, because those are tough questions to answer,” he said.
