Q: How do you guys bounce back?
A: Only with a win.
Q: Excuse me?
A: You said how do you bounce back from last week? Only with a win. I think youíve got to go out and get this one. The things that come along with a win, as far as our division, and trying to get back to where we want to be. So I think thatís definitely the biggest thing.
Q: As a veteran, what was it like to have to sit through that film and watch it?
A: I went to the bathroom. Itís hard. Itís real hard. Especially when so much is self-inflicted. Eight games in, you want to have your communication and everything down (pat). Youíve just got to keep going and get it right.
Q: When youíre out there, are you going, ĎWhat the hell is going oní?
A: Yeah, kinda. Youíre playing but when you get back to the sideline and try to get the corrections and understand whatís going on, but it was tough. It seemed like they wanted to do whatever they wanted and we had no answer, so it was definitely tough playing the game.
Q: What do you take from that? How do you move forward? What do you do to correct that at this point?
A: I donít think you can go no worse than that. In a 16-game season, I think youíre going to have a game somewhat like that, I donít know as bad, but I know youíre going to have a bad game, so hopefully that was it. Youíve just got to move on from it. You canít let that game beat you, so you have to get it out of your system real fast.
Q: What do you see of Jameis Winston on film? How has he improved?
A: A lot. Theyíre on fire right now, putting up almost 450 yards per game. A guy that definitely has a strong arm and has targets that he can get the ball to. Going to run the ball a little bit just to get him. Heís still young, but I like him for just throwing the ball and getting it down field.
Q: Even he admits that heís no Drew Brees.
A: No. No.
Q: Would you think itíll be a little easier to fool him on some things?
A: I hope because heís young, but I mean heís put up some good numbers this year and heís a first round overall pick. He definitely has some stuff about himself or he definitely wouldnít have been that. You canít take him lightly. You can take advantage of that [because] he hasnít seen all the pressures and things of that nature and try to come after him.
