The Cardinals game last week was a great team game but also a great lesson for finishing a game. We as an offense got to put up more points. That will help the defense out and help us close out the game as a team.
There are definitely are signs that this offense is doing some good things but we have to be better at playing well the whole game. We can play well for 2 or 3 quarters - but just like we did against Arizona - we have a tendency to then fade down the stretch. If we can get that going, we could see some wins come our way.
This Raiders game this week is a crazy quick turnaround for us. There’s less time to prepare but you have to do the same amount of work to get ready. It definitely makes things a little easier to get ready for a rivalry game like this, so I know we will be ready and juiced up when we get going on Thursday night.
This team is incredibly resilient and guys continue to stay positive even in the midst of adversity and losses. Guys are still hungry and wanting to grow in their game, so I think the best is yet to come for us. We have a chance on Thursday to take that next step forward and I think we are in a good position to do that this week.
