How tough of a day was this from the start for you guys?
“You never want to lose like that. All credit goes to them. They played their tails off and that is why they won. They executed in all three phases. They were the better team today. This is a big loss and we need to play better.”
You guys knew what type of defense they had, but how much harder did it make it for you to be able to get into drives when you were constantly battling behind the sticks?
“You cannot get anything going, you have edge rushers, guys who are coming fast off the ball to get the quarterback real quick. At the end of the day you have to be able to get into drives, put some plays together. Today, we were not able to do that and they were the better team.”
Mike Vrabel talked about the need to coach better and play better, which is often his theme after a bad game. Does that still resonate with you guys?
“That is always going to be the focus. That is all you can do. Tough loss, learn from it. You cannot go in the corner and cry about it. You have to be a man. We all have to hold each other accountable, be a team, play like a team and then let it translate on Sundays. It is all about improving and getting better.”
