CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Postgame vs. Detroit, September 18, 2017
Q: Whatís just the mindset putting this game behind and going into next week 0-2, do you feel there is any extra pressure on you guys now?
A: Definitely. We put ourselves in a hole and they only get tougher. I definitely know where weíre going this week, weíre going into a real hostile environment and that oneís going to be tough. You have to go down there and take that one.
Q: What is your overall evaluation of the defense over the past two weeks because the performances have been pretty solid?
A: At the end of the day, itís two losses. Whether theyíre good or not, we have to find a way to win. Weíre going out there playing good but obviously not good enough. As long as thereís points on the board we have to find a way to have more points than them.
Q: What do you think this team can do right now to get a win next week?
A: Got to come out and play, man. We know the guys we have in this locker room. We know weíre capable, we just have to prove that. Everybody knows we look good on paper, we have to do it on the field.
Q: What did you learn about your team today after this game?
A: I donít think anybody gave up. I know we were willing to fight. The adversity definitely hit us, but it didnít tear us apart. I think we stayed together for the most part. We have a short week, and we have to flush it out of our system and keep riding.
Q: Is it surprising to be in this spot right now?
A: No man, itís football. Itís two weeks, we have 14 more. Weíre going to figure that out in the middle somewhere.
Q: Dating back to last year, this is six straight games as a defense you guys have given up less than 20 points. Youíre 3-3 in those games, does that not sound right to you?
A: I donít think about that for the most part, man. Our job is just to go out there and try to get the ball back as much as we can to our offense. Whether what happens over there, thatís not on us. We just have to keep playing through it.
