Offensively, I thought we started off slow, but we started to pick it up. We started off in no-huddle because we wanted to work on that a little bit. There is a little different terminology that we use in there against a team that really knows all of our old calls, so we changed some things up and we probably tricked ourselves a little bit. It was good to work on it, and it was something that we needed to work on.
"Out there last week I still felt confident in my teammates and myself and our abilities to succeed as an offense. And coming out of last week's game, I knew why I did the things that I did - trying to force balls and trying to do too much at certain times and that's something that you can't do. So I was able to learn from my mistakes and even after the game I knew why the things happened the way that they did. So now it's just about moving forward, forgetting about it, having a short-term memory and getting better each and every week."
"The thing about it that it's good to check down and the other thing is that the backs that we have, they convert long check downs. They are usually right at the 1st down marker if they are not converting it. The check down in this offense is not a bad thing. We have elusive guys like McCoy and a powerful guy like [RB] Ronnie [Brown]. I think that it's not a bad thing getting them the ball. They can make things happen.
"Continued reps - it's preseason right now. We're still trying to get cohesion because there are two new guys in there. Some of it was poor communication between the offensive line and everybody else. Some of it's just poor communication among the offensive line in general. We're trying to get better each and everyday and I think that's the goal right now."
"I definitely felt better this week. I obviously felt more comfortable. Last week against the Steelers was really my first week. I think it was only seven or eight plays, so I really couldn't get in a rhythm. I definitely felt more comfortable this week and knew what to expect. I felt like it slowed down a lot-That's what I feel was the biggest change from last week to this week and I was getting more blocks and making plays."
