Kendall Has Trouble Sleeping
Two points about Pete Kendall's sleeping pattern following yesterday's unfortunate turn in the spotlight.
1) "Not a lot of sleep," Kendall said at the beginning of today's remarks, revisiting his catch-and-run-and-fumble.
2) "I don't want to make more if it than it is," he said later, when a second reporter asked him how much he had slept. "I often don't sleep well after games. So this was no exception."
Kendall was asked whether the Skins will be less likely to overlook the Browns after yesterday's surprise; "I would say that's a true statement," he said.
He was told that Chris Samuels said he would have done the same thing; "He probably wouldn't have fumbled though," Kendall said.
And he was also asked about Clinton Portis's post-game remarks faulting the Skins for being too loose. Kendall disagreed, saying sometimes loose locker rooms lead to success, and sometimes they don't, and sometimes tight locker rooms lead to success, and sometimes they don't.
"On that I disagree with Clinton, but who's to say who's right?" Kendall said. "My opinion is that we were doing the right things and preparing the right way, and it didn't come out right on Sunday. You could certainly make the argument that I'm wrong."
I'm going to choose to agree with Kendall, in the interests of more mid-week Hip Hip Hooray videos. As for Zorn, he had a typical Zornish take on the Kendall play this afternoon.
"The batted ball and Pete tucks it away and it gets popped out, you think that we scramble around for it and just have a big pile and see who gets it," Zorn said. "This was a scoop and score for 80 yards. If I went in there to our team and...started throwing blows, I just feel like it's stating the obvious. To work 'em harder? 'Ok, Pete, now we're gonna work on you batting the ball down.'
"You know, what am I gonna do? I mean, we could come up with a drill: Zorn worked on an O-Line...maybe. I just sort of feel like that would be foolishness. I don't know if we could get that again."
Zorn went on to say that he was more concerned about players jumping offsides, although those guys probably won't get asked how they're sleeping.
