MNF preview: Bill Cowher says Redskins' Jim Zorn has 'lost his ability to be a head coach' - The Huddle: Football News from the NFL - USATODAY.com
"When he was faced this past week with the stripping of the play-calling, he had two choices: No. 1 you say no, and that could lead to his firing; or No. 2 you can say, if that's part of the contract and they can do that, you accept it, you leave the room and endorse it. He didn't do either. And in doing so, he lost his dignity and he lost his credibility. To me, he lost his ability to be a head coach and lead this football team. He's nothing more than a figure head right now."

"The type of receiver I see myself as, I critique myself about every little thing," Jackson said the other day. "For that to be a big game for us last year . . . I wasn't myself. I didn't come up like I needed to. I've erased that and got a new opportunity this year; I'm ready. Last year wasn't the best game for myself, so I definitely look forward to this game. They got some pretty good corners, too; it's definitely a big challenge."

And then in between the series, we'll be communicating and I'll be communicating to him, and then we'll start working on the plan for the next series. I'll be talking to the players. There's a lot to do. I'll be attentive to what I have to do while our offense is on the sideline. Because when you're a play-caller, you're concentrating. ... I'm just going to keep quiet" about play-calling.
