Jim Zorn Was Ready for Week One
Instead of wandering around New Jersey parking lots Sunday afternoon, I decided to take pictures of my television set. The first and most obvious observation: Man, you get a better idea of what's happening in the game from your living room than you do from a press box. I need to keep doing this.
Anyhow, most of these observations are not of the hardcore football sort, so apologies to anyone who was looking for Doug Farrar and accidentally stumbled here. Still....
Above was Jim Zorn before the game. He looked fresh and spry, talking to several members of ownership and doing whatever it is he's doing above. And then, after the game....
Well, he no longer looked fresh and spry, anyhow. He did seem to have the Manny Acta blank stare going, as several of my Twitter friends pointed out. Or heck, Eddie Jordan.
And speaking of fresh and spry, here's Albert Haynesworth!
"What they want me to do is go as hard as I can, and if I get tired, come out, catch my breath and then go back out," Haynesworth told Rick Maese.
"It'll take him two to three games, maybe longer, depending on how bad of shape he's in, to get into real football shape and go throughout the season," Brian Mitchell said on the CSN set.
Sure, there were positives. Some of them came before kickoff. Like here, Carlos Rogers's t-shirt, which many Redskins have apparently been wearing.
Or Fred Smoot, walking into the stadium. Also a fresh look.
Or Tanner Cooley. Also a fresh look. And CSN folks, can't you find a better way to describe him? Please?
I thought the checkered Portis cleats were tight. Not sure about these, which I gather several members of the secondary, including DeAngelo Hall, debuted.
The Moss brothers seemed ready for the NFL season to start. More importantly, the CSN texters seemed ready for the NFL season to start. How come that never happens with Trevor Matich or Chick Hernandez?
Oh yeah, Giants fans seemed ready, too.
(Ok, this was actually a Giants fan from the '80s, but whatever. These same bad mustaches are still out there. I've seen them.)
