But as Lewis says, Brennan fans need to chill and learn Zorn-speak. In fact, he aids the reader by interpreting what Zorn really means. Here are two of his examples.
- What Zorn says: "From my standpoint, I think he's doing OK."
What Zorn means: "If I said what I really think I'd have the other QBs either pouting or calling their agents, and who needs that in the preseason?"
What Zorn says: "He has to become a more disciplined QB. Not risk as much as he risked in the game. This week it turned out to be a great performance, but it could easily have been the other way."
What Zorn means: "He's a coach's dream: Even when he screws up he has the ability to make us look good."
