This team is relentless and scrappy and we proved it Sunday night against Pittsburgh. I’m sure there were some people who wrote us off after that first half, but you know who didn’t? My brothers and coaches in that locker room. Down by 16 at the half in only a two-possession game and we had to slow the game down and take it one possession at a time.
On defense, we emphasized limiting the big plays. They have explosive players but we knew that if we limited the deep throws we can make them play our game. That second half showed what kind of defense we have and the talent on that side of the ball.
The offense was outstanding, when one guy goes down the next man is ready to fill in and that’s what happened. We had guys stepping up everywhere and we put a stamp on this great season we’re having so far, but we know there’s still a long road ahead.
We have another big game against Cincinnati this week, but the reality is that all the games are big at this point. We have to come out hot and keep our foot on the pedal. We know how talented their roster is so we will prepare and control what we can control. We can’t worry about any other team but ourselves and that is what we will do, we will enjoy this win but get back to work to get that next victory!
