Here is a six-pack of the top lessons learned from the 19-3 win over the Arizona Cardinals:
“(Brandon) is having a bounce-back start in these first two games…We’re all feeding off each other and as you can see (he and Jahleel Addae) made big plays tonight.”
“The biggest difference for us in the run defense is that everybody was doing their job. Everyone trusted each other, and everybody made their play. And they didn’t make it for themselves, they did it because they wanted to make it for their brother. When we stick together as a defense and we play like that, we’re going to do well.”
“I thought we did OK. We made some plays. But at the end of the day we got to get that touchdown. We have to get that mindset that we won’t be denied and we will get in the end zone.”
“We gave Mike an opportunity to go in there for a half. We said we wanted to give him a good half to see what he could do. He went out there and made some good plays.”
“We kind of had it designed there on what we wanted to do with Josh initially. We were going to kick some short and kick some deeper and do some things. There was one there I wanted to go (for it) on the fourth down, the possibility of going for it for the offense but I said I have got to remember now, I have three phases to look at and I want to make sure Josh and the field goal team get some work there. So we kicked it. He got a lot of good work and that is what we wanted him to do. And then the youngster (Kaser), he just keeps doing his job. He did a nice job. We downed the one ball and then another opportunity, so (I am) very pleased with both of them up to this point in time.”
“You get excited for those players, and then all of a sudden it comes to this halting stop because of an injury. But hey, things happen for reasons in life. We all understand the game. Injuries are a bad part of the game.” Read
