If you look at the offensive side of the ball, we have a nice drive then we come back and, I don’t know if I have the plays in sequence correctly, but we come right back and (QB) David (Carr) comes back and makes a great play on second-and-10 on a blitz, getting the ball to (RB) Ronnie (Dayne). So we get another first down there, and here we go. We got a play called with a particular type of cadence that we like to use as an advantage, and we had just done it, four plays later as a football team. And all of a sudden we can’t do it this time. We snap the ball, (and) we’re lucky that’s not a turnover. It’s just lucky that the ball bounces back to us, so some of those things like that. Then the next series we put a snap on the ground, (and) we had two false starts. It’s like a snowball, and bad teams do that. Bad offenses do that. That’s what I told the players today, and until we can get that out of our system it is hard to grow from that standpoint because it just starts happening and snowball effect. It’s hard to fight out of that. And if you look at it from a defensive perspective, we have a three-and-out to start the game. After we score, we kick off to them. They have a penalty. We really have them pinned back. We’re pretty good on first down, pretty good on second, and now we have them third-and –six. They run a shovel pass where, just between us, in all honesty, the stunt we have going on inside, it couldn’t have been any better. It couldn’t have been a better stunt to stop that play. And we got a guy out of position and we don’t make that play. And the guy goes seventy-something yards. That’s the difference in winning and losing in this league. If you’re wrong with a snap or you’re wrong with a stunt you get exposed real quick, but those are plays. And the thing we have to look at is the big picture because after those plays it continues on for a very long time. Just like I said, we have to figure out a way to fix it.” (on how to keep the players from turning negative) “First thing you’ve got to do it convince them of some of the things that they are doing that are positive, and there are some things that we can pull from. There are some performances from people that we can pull from that we can say we need more people playing like this and doing things like this. But until something positive, something good starts to happen, I think it’s very, very difficult as a group because of the negative effect. But the only way to fight through that is to fight through that. If you’re not willing to do that, its not going to change. As I tell them, I’m willing to fight through it. It’s hard. I see a group that is willing to fight through it. I have had no problem with the group, as far as doing their work and having a positive attitude about what they’re doing. And I know these coaches are willing to fight through it. It just has to be a lot of people willing to pay a price, from an organization standpoint, to turn it around. And not one person is going to do it; it’s going to take everybody to do that.” Sounds like alot of the teams problem is mental.
