Let the Zorn era begin

What a nut that Tony Dungy is with an onside kick on the first play of the Hall of Fame game.
- Colts quarterback Jim Sorgi has been given the hook after one series. Sorgi was 7-of-10 for 66 yards before turning things over to former Jaguars quarterback Quinn Gray.
- Redskins have to be pleased with what they saw from seventh-round defensive end Rob Jackson, who sacked Sorgi in the first quarter. I watched Jackson in person at least twice when he was at Kansas State, and he's one of those high-motor guys that could give the Redskins some much-needed depth behind Jason Taylor and Andre Carter.
- By the way, Taylor has turned his new jersey into a muscle shirt. Sort of an odd look. When the Hall of Fame class was introduced before the game, Taylor set up shop just a couple of feet behind them.
Jim Zorn has been working with Campbell on taking bigger strides and then getting lower in the pocket. So far he looks a lot less stiff than I've seen in the past.
I love seeing guys like Art Monk and Darrell Green talk about what the Hall of Fame means to them. Remind me to tell you a great Green story that Michael Irvin told me last week.
