Here are five lessons we learned from Sunday’s 21-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers:
“It’s a point of emphasis to go out, have fun and get back to realizing this game is the most fun game in the world. And to get out of camp mode and going against each other. We’re a team now. Let’s go play against someone else and root on our teammates. When someone does something good, be happy and ecstatic and excited about playing this game. That was one of the big differences from playing last week. Our energy and excitement was up and we played like it. When our front and backfield play together and do what we’re coached to do, we can play really well.”
“Unfortunately the short-yardage situation and going for it, we stubbed our toe there, just a little break down there in what we’re supposed to be doing, so that’s on us as coaches, we’ve got to do a better job there and get the players to execute in a critical situation. But, we told them last night that we were going to do that, we got to fourth and one, we were going for it in the red area so, we’ve got to do better there. And then after that, and I’ll look at the film and evaluate. Offensively, it was poor, lack of conversions on third downs and break downs, protection errors.”
“I think had we not ended in a touchdown there I would have wanted to go a little longer, but finishing with a touchdown, Antonio and Mike McCoy looked at me and said I was done. I don’t think it mattered what my answer was, but finishing like that and getting a couple of series in a row, I felt good personally, not like I needed a little more action, and I feel good where we are.”.”
When Corey is on, when he gets hot and makes plays early, when he gets going, he is as good as there is in the league…If he keeps playing at that level, people are going to recognize him. He is a big time talent, and as he continues to progress and get more mature, everyone is going to know his name.”
“We’re always evaluating things. You want to win games. That’s why we’re out here. We’re trying to find the best 53 players so we’ve got to evaluate everybody and we’re going to have tough decisions to make so, a lot of guys played a lot today. They’re going to play a lot in a short amount of time come Thursday night. They’ve got to take care of their bodies in a couple days and get back out there and some guys are working extremely hard fighting for a position on this football team.” Read
