"Yeah. Absolutely. After playing in a system for a year and having to learn it in games as oppose to practice. You learn a lot faster. Pretty much the first half of the season where we were still in the learning mode of it because that was our eight weeks to get down. I think that compared to where we are right now it's much more comfortable for myself, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and everyone else pretty much back there. Even Juan Castillo is much more comfortable."
They also asked about the comparison he made on the Rich Eisen podcast between 8-8 in Oakland and 8-8 in Philadelphia.
"The 8-8 in Oakland? We were perennially the last team in the AFC West. We would win maybe two games a year or four games a year. When we got to 8-8 and it was like wow! There is so much improvement. You're not excited you didn't make the playoffs, but you're excited that we were moving in the right direction. I love how different that is over here because 8-8 is not acceptable. It doesn't matter where you have come from. 8-8 should always be we are playing below where we should be playing. Out here that is the mentality. 8-8 shouldn't be anywhere near what we are thinking. That was great."
