RE: Consistency in the running game:
A: Yeah. I think we’ve been fairly consistent overall over the course of the year. There have obviously been some games where we haven’t been able to run the ball, but I think for the most part, we’ve done a pretty good job. There are still a lot of areas that we can fix, which is always encouraging. I know that we always say that, but it’s the truth, and if we’re able to shore up some things and some of those ten-yarders, maybe we’ll break out longer runs. Q: In New Orleans, the games didn’t go well for you guys. How difficult was it in those games for the offense having to always play catch-up like that?
A: We’ve had zero success. It’s one of those where we were down quick and the crowd got into it. I heard that song play over and over again. I don’t know the name of it. That’s a tough place to play. It’s very tough. It’s nice that we don’t have to go down there. We know that they’re still a very dangerous team. Q: Do you think they’re different, or maybe you’ll be different? They’re a dome team that may be playing in the elements?
A: You eliminate the crowd noise, obviously. Hopefully, we’re able to get our crowd into it as they were in their home games early. That’s the thing, you need to jump up early and not play from behind. Q: Their coach (Joe Vitt) said “I think they’ll enjoy us getting a taste of their water.”
A: Yeah. Just something to try and change the outcome.
