Zorn Again

Zorn Again

Since the moment Brett Favre was traded, Packers fans have feared a return to the Green Bay Packers of the eighties. Redskins coach Jim Zorn remembers those days all too well.

Since we find ourselves in the midst of a bye week, I have been scouring the inter web for something different.  I ran across an article written in 1986, which was shortly after Jim Zorn left his familiar spot as quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks and found himself a member of the Green Bay Packers.

Honestly, it is a sad story. A telling tale of lonely hotel rooms and poor performances. It is a look at what the Packers used to be, and what many feared the team would look like in the future.

"We really got destroyed and we looked like a sorry bunch of guys," Zorn recalled, wincing. "I thought to myself after the game, 'What did I do by coming to this team?' It was embarrassing to see some of the attitudes and work habits of the players. I couldn't believe it."

It is an intriguing article even after almost twenty-two years. I encourage everyone who remembers the eighties to read it, and those who fear a return to that era to read it twice.

Fascinating. Unless you're Forrest of course.
