I believe we are a better football team, certainly better than we have shown.
There are no excuses for a game like this. I thought we were very fired up and ready to go, but it just didn't happen on the field. It's alarming.
Keep your fingers crossed. We should get him back sometime this year. It looks like it will be several weeks to heal that fibula, but Jeff's a tough kid and he'll be back as fast as he possibly can.
I had to get him off the field today. There was no way I could keep playing him, because if he got a twisted ankle or something, now we're really looking for quarterbacks.
I think we need to. We want to, and we're going to make it happen. If we win ten or 11 ballgames and make the playoffs, it would make us happy and make the fans happy.
It'll be a good crowd. It'll be a national TV audience. It's a game where we're playing our guys longer.
You should, and we do.
We'll make some noise, ... Whatever we have to work with we try to make the best of, and that's what we do as coaches. No matter whom I'm working with, that's our job, and I do feel we have better players now than we did several years ago.
We had them backed up again and let them off the hook. I thought we improved our tackling. We still have a ways to go.
Was he a little behind when he got here? You bet. And is he catching up? Yeah, I think so.
The Chargers made a statement today.
We'll just keep our fingers crossed.
Some of it will depend on if it's a six-week thing, or if it's a 12-week thing. That determines if we bring in a guy or go with two quarterbacks. It's been done before. Not very often.
This is the best news we could've received. He called right after he got the results. Jeff was very upbeat and said he hopes to be ready sooner. He is on his way back to Michigan and will begin his rehab this afternoon.
Their effort was outstanding. It's as good a fourth preseason game as I've been around.
Joey's going to start practicing Monday, and Dan's getting better every day.
Pretty darn. He was a busy guy. He was right on course to being a heck of a football player.
We'll have more information (today).
He's an up-and-coming guy, and if there is a surprise in our draft class, it is Dan, ... The game isn't too fast for him, and we're not writing him off as the backup right now.
You want to see it on film?
You're tempted to say, `We're going to play until we get something done,' ... We have to resist that because we have to be smart.
Kevin took a few snaps today - just to learn the cadence and hand the ball off, ... He's going to get some work, but hopefully we won't ever get to that point.
How could he possibly have any idea of what we're doing before he got here? He took a year and a half off. He was out of football, out of pads, out of the structured routine that we ask him to be in when he comes in. There's no way running on a beach or at some high school playground that you're goi
Other than Jeff and other than a lot of penalties, I was really pleased with our performance,
Right now, we don't have him blowing up any receivers coming across the middle for obvious reasons. So, he will shine when it's live. He's got the experience. I know he's ready to do that. He's been just kind of holding back. Chomping at the bit, sort of. You'll see it.
Everything we talk about is about beating the Packers, the Bears and the Vikings. Obviously there are other teams in the league, but if you can dominate and be on top of your division you are always in the playoff hunt. It's time for us to win that thing.
I've been a lucky guy.
The halftime score is going to be important.
Keep your fingers crossed, ... It looks like it will be several weeks to heal that fibula, but he will be back. He is a tough guy.
