Obviously, last week’s game against the Browns didn’t go as we’d hoped. It’s nothing we have dwelled on. We’ve watched the film, learned from it, and are moving on to Tennessee. We’ll get another crack at them but now we have to get ready for the Titans.
I’ve been asked a few questions about our offense lately.
First of all, our offensive line is doing a really good job. They’re staying on guys. There are so many things we’re doing well, and I always say it starts up front and, those guys are playing really, really well. As long as those guys can continue to do that, then I think everything else kind of falls in place.
We’re all out there trying to do our part to make plays that are going to change the game. I think sometimes you just have to relax, let the game come to you and not try to do too much.
We’re a very prideful group. I know everyone works very hard at what they do. That’s not the issue. If that was the issue, that might need to be addressed, but that’s not it. Struggles are just something we have to overcome together.
When it comes down to it, our success on offense starts with me. But as long as we can continue to rely on those guys up front playing that way, I don’t think it’s going to happen too much. I think we’re still a very confident group, ready to move forward.
If that means I have to be a more convincing decoy, then that is what I’ll be. My wife gave me crap the other day, told me I need to look more interested when I’m lined up as a wide receiver there. But I’m just trying to stay out of it. I’m not comfortable out there. I don’t need to get too creative.
I really just try to stay out of the way of everything. That’s what I’m told to do. That’s what I’m doing. I have no interest in catching any passes. But if that is what the situation calls for…
Going into the game against the Titans this week, we are not necessarily going to be looking to run more or pass more. We have the weapons we need to move the ball no matter what the play call is. We just have to execute.
There is no optimum number of pass attempts or run attempts; whatever it takes to win is all that matters.
