Faces of Zorn: The Rabach Scowl

Jim Zorn has the most expressive press conferences I've ever seen from an NFL coach, or from any coach in any sport. That's why Faces of Zorn usually works pretty well; his face (and arms, and torso) can pretty much tell the story. But in this case, they're entirely deficient, because they can't possibly do justice to the audio. Best go and listen yourself.

Anyhow, Zorn was asked about Casey Rabach, and here's what he said.

"He's hard nosed, he's really one of our toughest players on our football team, and I think he's showing that...." Zorn said. "I mean, he's playing hard. The one thing about Casey, too is he's kind of a high pain-tolerance guy. One of those guys you just love out there.

"'How you doing?' Argghgghgh," Zorn said, mimicking Rabach's typical response and making the above face.

"It's just he's always growling at something," Zorn continued. "He's not very friendly out there on the football field. It's not that he's complaining about something, but he's always got a little scowl and a growl. Oadsflkjdrghghgh. Hweflkajflrghghghgh. He acts like he's mad all the time at you, you know, at me. 'What did I do? Why are you saying it that way?' But that's the kind of guy he is, and he gets a good response from his guys, and I think those players pull together because of Casey, because of our older veteran guys. Randy, he's got that same scowl on his face when he's out there, too."

"Clinton under the radar?!"

The Rabach faces are at about 7 minutes.

"he's kind of a high pain-tolerance guy. One of those guys you just love out there."

Casey Rabach will be dead by age 50.

Too bad Rabach does not translate that scowl onto the field and block people......the opponents went thru him like a turnstile last year.....He was horrible at best !!!!
