When he said go for it there, it makes you feel like he has a lot of confidence in what you are doing. We had a lot of confidence. It would have been a shame to walk off that field right there. He gave us the opportunity. That is all you can ask for. And we let him down. It is too bad. Hopefully he hasn't lost faith in us because we love going for it in situations like that. We just have to find a way to get it done.
What did you see on the play where you scrambled for 10 yards? We had run that play a few times and I just figured they were going to jump it eventually. They were in a coverage where they had two deep safeties and everybody else was in underneath one-on-one. Nobody had me. So all I had to do was get through the line. 54 made a nice play. He rallied and tripped me up. I thought I could get 10 yards, but unfortunately I came up a little short.
What do you see from Mo out there? He gets downhill quickly. Guys love him in the locker room. You root for him. Doesn't change the same way you feel about Mac or Shaun, but we really like him.
Never miss a local story.
Can you take anything from still being in first place? It is amazing, but we are not going to apologize for that. Sometimes you get breaks that arent fair, and other times you get breaks in your favor that aren't fair. We won't apologize for it. It is an opportunity for us to improve and get going and start winning some games. No one wants to hear it again but I think our best football is in front of us.
