Is this guy for real? Did they not go through zone defence during training camp? Hell, or since? It's not as if these players have never played zone defence before. I'm really astounded that they aren't really prepared to play much zone defence 18 games into the season!!
this is indeed quite troubling. and it's one thing to be unprepared, and quite another to announce that to the national media. "hey opposing teams, we don't even know how to play zone, so go ahead and rock the pick and roll all you want. we got nothing!"

where did the quote come from jeff?
