Here is a six-pack of the top lessons learned from the 31-24 loss to the Miami Dolphins
“(I) haven’t had a game like this that I can remember. With those critical turnovers, I’m not the first quarterback to have some, and I won’t be the last to have some crucial ones. I can’t remember one quite like this. I hate it for the guys in there. There were plenty of opportunities and I know they count on me to make those, and I do as well. I just didn’t get it done today.”
“It was a mistake. You can’t fault Philip. We had more than numerous opportunities to get the ball in; I could have made bigger runs. It’s not the time to point fingers at Philip. He made a couple mistakes, but he’s human. He’s our leader. We’re going to regroup and see what we can do moving on.”
“There is no rhyme or reason (for it). It’s just a matter of us getting the job done at each position…This is something that happens throughout the season. You’re going to have a game where you’re not going to get it right. We got it right for the most part, but the little things hurt us. ”
“They made plays in the run game; that’s what hurt us. They made two big run plays that got them in scoring range and they finished it off. We didn’t make enough plays to stop the run… It’s always a tough pill to swallow when you lose. You put so much work in during the week and when you don’t come out with a victory on a close one like this it’s hard. You can always learn from loses like this.”
“This one was big as we all said so it certainly doesn’t make anything any easier. It’s already going to be a tough road and this makes it even tougher. But we’ll heal up a bit, get a few guys back, and fight like crazy down the stretch.”
“Any loss is tough especially one like today. I think we will still come back after the bye week and make some things happen. We still have confidence. We feel like we can come in after the BYE week and make a push for the playoffs. We still have six games left so anything can happen. We are going to keep going. We will be fine.”
