Q: What happened on the three blocked kicks last week vs. Philadelphia?
A: Poor fundamentals and thatís on me. So, Iíve got to get that corrected. The PAT, we missed that and then we ended up chasing those points all game, which makes it really tough to play. I thought the offense, defense played their butts off and we didnít come through.
Q: Did Philadelphia do anything schematically to cause the blocks?
A: No, we prepared for what they were doing. So, the first one they got us and the second one, we were kind of overcompensating for what they did the first time and they got us on the outside. So, good rush by them, poor protection by us.
Q: How do you get kicker Aldrick Rosasí confidence back up?
A: I feel bad for the kid because heís getting those blocked and heís on time, the rise is there. So, I think heís fine with that.
Q: How tough of a game was that for you last week, leaving five points off the board?
A: Itís awful. Itís awful. Itsís more than that, youíve got the blocked punt that led to a touchdown. I feel awful. So, itís the way it is.
Q: On the blocks, did somebody miss a block, or what happened?
A: The first time, they got us outside and they overcompensated inside and they got us on the outside. So, thatís what led to it.
