It’s not really news to anyone that last season didn’t end quite as well as we might’ve hoped — certainly not after that strong start. And, as fans, it’s our prerogative to immediately make changes all over the place in our mental depth charts for the team. We decide to (for example) elevate the third string quarterback to starter, or fire the head coach. Whatever.
But you’d really prefer that the players still have faith in their teammates and coaches, which makes this Santana Moss interview at CBS Sports a relief to read.
It sounds like you’re firmly in Zorn’s corner despite how the season finished up. Not every Redskin teammate would share that sentiment.
Moss: “I like Jim Zorn, I like what he wants to do, I like his whole logic to the game. I feel like he knows that this game isn’t based on just passing or just running, he knows that you have to have talent all over and have key guys in key spots. I like what he has to offer us as a head coach and I’m going to back him because I feel like we all believe in his scheme and that we can be successful in it.”
From your perspective, how much better has Jason Campbell become over the last season?
Moss: “I think he’s gotten a lot better. Like light years. The stuff that he went through last year will make him see things more clearly this year. Last year there were situations where he was sacked a lot, and you can’t blame it on that kid. You can’t blame it on anybody because defenses were bringing it and they knew where we were weak and they exposed it. He gave us a chance to win every time we went out there, and that’s all you can hope for.
Sure, it would have been a much livelier story if he had trashed either (or both) of them, but seeing this kind of explicit endorsement at this point in the offseason is a terrific harbinger for the 2009 season. At least, I hope it is.
