Heading into the bye week, Coach Shanahan told the guys something I couldn’t agree with more. He told us all to take a good look at themselves and decide what we wanted to prove down the stretch.
He basically told us to prove we deserve a spot on this roster. In my opinion, that’s how it always should be, no matter what time of the season, and no matter what your record is.
When you’re on a good team, and things are going well, you’re still playing for your job. But it’s just a little more secure. But even then, I don’t think you should feel secure. You should always be looking to play at a high level, no matter what.
Going forward, guys need to prove their worth, myself included. We have to play great football. As always, I will strive to do my job at a high level and help my team win.
I think there’s been a lot of growth this season in the secondary and that we have some guys with some real potential. A game like this should give everyone a chance to show just how much they have improved throughout the season.
If we play as well as I know we can, I am confident we can come away with a win.
