Zorn: 'We have to win individual battles'

LANDOVER, Md. -- Here's what Jim Zorn said as he left the field at halftime:

"It is a battle. The last punt we got beat on the left side and it created a problem. Both teams are battling. We have had too many three-and-outs, but I also have to call the right play. We have to win the individual battles. Sometimes the coverage was there, but we have to win. We have to find a way to make the plays to put ourselves in a winning situation."

Well, the Redskins just had another three-and-out series. I think that makes them 0 for 9 on third downs. I watched Zorn make a beeline to where the Redskins offensive players were sitting. Clinton Portis doesn't look anywhere close to 100 percent to me. There's just no explosion and he had a drop during that series. But it's not like the Redskins have any options. Shaun Alexander is dreadful at this point in his career.
