Just in case the earlier post today didn’t provide you with enough “Jim-Zorn-supports-Jason-Campbell” for this oddly dreary Wednesday, Mark Maske checks in with EVEN MORE over at his NFL News Feed at the Washington Post.
It’s a long Q&A from the NFC Coaches’ Breakfast in California; it covers a lot of the usual recent offseason subjects, and includes plenty of comfortingly Zornian answers.
The crux of the Campbell talk, after the jump :
Did you talk to [Campbell] about the Cutler speculation?
“Not specifically. Not specifically from the standpoint of, ‘Hey, man, you’re my guy.’ But definitely, we just started talking about what we have to work on this offseason so that we can step into that season even better than we did last year.”
Are you worried at all that your quarterback, like Cutler, now might feel unwanted by his own team?
“I truly think that there shouldn’t be a quarterback in the National Football League that should be overly concerned. A lot of things have to happen for one thing to take place. [And] there’s so much to do. I really believe that each quarterback should be concerned about their own improvement, their own and for their teams. I would hope that in our situation that Jason would be getting people rallied in our offseason program, talking to our receivers, talking to our tight ends, talking to our running backs, getting together with these guys and start talking about what we’re going to do here in the minicamps and OTAs. That’s really what I want.”
Does a quarterback need to be treated differently than any other player in a situation like this, like with a potential trade?
“I don’t think so. I think that each quarterback has to know the vision of where this team is going, and I think it can get confusing if there’s mixed messages. But I don’t think we’re trying to give mixed messages to Jason at all. I think we’re going full steam ahead.”
That may seem like a long excerpt, but there’s plenty more to read — including Zorn on the new rule changes, Zorn on rookie quarterbacks, and Zorn or winning the division. Lots and lots of Zorn, in fact.
