How much did the events over the last couple of days weigh the players down:
There is no excuse for what happened here this afternoon. We are all saddened by the events that happened in Newtown, CT and I felt terrible about it and I’m sure everyone in the nation did as well not just us and for it to happen so close to home the players were very upset about it. When you have players that have young children and they could empathize with the parents of the young children that were killed. There was no one that could escape and no way it couldn’t affect everyone but that is no excuse on how we played.
What were you most shocked by in the performance:
Consistency, that’s the word I’ll use. I don’t want to say shocked by it but where was it? They did a good job and we are not taking anything away from them defensively. They reeled us in and Samuel is still that same guy we have faced before. DeCoud had a nice interception. They were able to do some things up front that allowed their secondary to make plays and got a couple of interceptions out of it and it really took the wind out of our sails.
What do you do next to bounce back:
We have two games to play. There is a lot of fire and a lot of character in that locker room. We have to come back from a devastating loss and shake it off somehow, someway. We have to comeback as competitors and prepare ourselves for a very difficult game next Sunday and then one to follow. With these two games left unfortunately we are 2 and 2 in this six game schedule and we needed to be better than that.
