Always the energetic lefthander, Jim Zorn had an upbeat but nervous start to his coming-out event with the Washington Redskins. The new coach got the team colors wrong - he called them maroon and black. He paid tribute to assistant Gregg Williams, who was recently fired. He lacked the polish of his predecessor, Joe Gibbs, who watched yesterday's news conference at Redskins Park auditorium. Zorn himself said it was nothing short of "miraculous" that he was standing where he was: a few feet behind the team's three Super Bowl trophies, essentially making the jump from quarterbacks coach.

IN A SHARP rebuke to his successor's handling of the NFL's bounty investigation, former commissioner Paul Tagliabue overturned the suspensions of four current and former New Orleans Saints players in a case that has preoccupied the league for almost a year. Tagliabue, who was appointed by commissioner Roger Goodell to handle the appeals, still found that three of the players engaged in conduct detrimental to the league. He said they participated in a performance pool that rewarded key plays - including bone-jarring hits - that could merit fines.

Saints linebacker Jon Vilma expressed disappointment on Friday that the new schedule for bounty hearings virtually prevents him from being able to personally confront his accusers. Vilma wanted to be present for witness interviews with former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and former defensive assistant Mike Cerullo, who assisted the NFL's investigation into the Saints cash-for-hits pool. According to documents obtained by the Associated Press , the NFL is responsible for producing Cerullo in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, the same day the Saints play in Atlanta.

For the third consecutive game, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be without their star quarterback. At least it appears as if they'll have the quarterback of their defense and the reigning team MVP back on the field. Ben Roethlisberger will not play Sunday in Baltimore, meaning Charlie Batch will make his second consecutive start at quarterback for the Steelers (6-5), who have lost each of the first two games Roethlisberger missed. Unlike a defeat at home two weeks ago to the rival Ravens (9-2)

Watch an NFL game with Malcolm Jenkins, and he believes he can immediately tell you something about the two teams playing. "You look at every team in the league, and you can tell which teams have a defensive-minded coach and which teams have an offensive-minded coach," the Eagles safety said Monday as his teammates cleared out their belongings from the NovaCare Complex locker room. "I don't think there is a right or wrong. I think you need to have complementary football. Those are the teams that are successful.

"Culture wins football. Culture will beat scheme every day. " - Chip Kelly Malcolm Jenkins has a story about five monkeys, a banana, and culture. The Eagles cornerback first heard it when he was with the Saints. He said the story was told in New Orleans as an allegory for building culture, and that it applied to Kelly and why he probably believes the culture he's creating within the Eagles organization supersedes scheme. "If you take five monkeys, put them in a room with some stairs, and put a banana at the top of the stairs, every one of those monkeys is going to try go get the banana," Jenkins said.

MOBILE, Ala.—New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton kept using the word "closure" during an extraordinary, 45-minute news conference Wednesday morning following the North team practice at the Senior Bowl. But the size of the media throng around Payton, as he spoke for the first time since NFL commissioner Roger Goodell lifted Payton's 1-year suspension Tuesday in the "Bountygate" case, was maybe the first clue that putting the scandal in the past isn't going to be easy or simple.

Saints linebacker Jon Vilma has filed a motion urging a federal judge to reject NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's motion to dismiss the Saints linebacker's defamation lawsuit. Vilma's motion filed Friday says Goodell acted with reckless disregard for the truth when basing initial allegations about Vilma upon one fired Saints assistant whose testimony has been inconsistent and challenged by other witnesses in the NFL's bounty probe of the Saints. The motion centers on Goodell's public comments that Vilma held up $10,000 cash in a team meeting in 2010, offering it to anyone who knocked Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner out of a playoff game.
