Faces of Zorn: The Frothy Rock Star

Jim Zorn has the most expressive press conferences I've ever seen from an NFL coach, or from any coach in any sport. Here's a feature dedicated to those looks.

Wednesday, Zorn was asked about what he'd say to his team before Sunday's opener, to fire them up and all that.

"Wellll, uh, I don't know if I can go to heroics to fire this team up so that they're grawwwww," Zorn said, snarling in a way that few NFL coaches ever had. "You know, all frothy and all that kind of stuff," he explained. "But they're men. They're pros. So I hope i don't have to say a lot to get them ready to play. They should be fired up. It's a conference game, it's the first game, it's a tremendous opponent. They'll be raring to go. These guys like to play football."

Zorn was also asked about the team's preseason hazing rituals, and while he didn't make any funny faces, his answer was interesting.

"You mean being tied up?" he laughed. "That's not hazing. That's sort of a lovefest. I kind of feel like it's an endearing thing, to be loved that much that you would be taped up to a goalpost. It just shows you how much you love the guy....We don't necessarily haze here. I mean, I looked at that as just fun. I haven't changed that part of it."

is it just me or would Zorn look better with a bit of stubble and maybe a beard or something?

Can we just call it "the Simple Jack"?

An emphatic YES to both comments. Except maybe "Simple Jim" instead. I kinda wonder,alex, whether he could just go for a simple porn stache ala Childress. Very few guys left in the biz sporting that. Or, how bout some Wolverine chops?
