Pretty uneventful press conference ... but then again, what can head coach Jim Mora really talk about? The Hawks are clearly struggling and if he had any magical answers to fix them, he would have used them weeks ago. Of course, he hasn't lost hope or a positive outlook.
"I'm just stating a fact that I am impressed with effort and fight we continued to show throughout the game," he said. "That shows up on tape. That's what you want. That's what you expect. That's what should happen. But it doesn't always happen. So that's something we're going to try and build on."Deon Grant
Running back Julius Jones (lung contusion) and corner back Josh Wilson (concussion) will both practice this week. Obviously Jones will be kind of limited because the lung contusion didn't allow him to condition. Wilson should be ready for Sunday. DL Red Bryant also suffered a minor sprained knee, but should also be ready for Sunday.
I will post a few other comments, but then try and beat traffic back to T-town and then post some more later.
Mora was asked to assess the job he's done over the 10 games this season
"Obviously not good enough, or we wouldn't be 3-7."On Aaron Curry seeing reduced snaps ...
"We've tried to take a little off his plate and allow him to focus on being a good first and second down linebacker."On the two biggest disappointments from Sunday's loss ...
"Our inability to sustain any type of running attack bothered me and our inability to affect the passer bothered me, which resulted in his completion percentage."
