Marvin Lewis talked about this team maybe trying too hard and needing to relax. Do you feel that?
“I don’t know so much about that. I think we have a lot of guys that are very talented who get very impatient with getting an opportunity. They want to get it so bad that they might make a mistake.”
Looking at the first half; how hard is it when you look and things are just starting and it’s already kind of getting away from you?
“It was tough. Like you said, it’s very hard to start very slow and start to pick it back up so late. The margin of error is very small in our league. In order for us to start like that, we have to finish strong. We started to but we have to start that in the first half, not the second.”
Where does this team go from here?
“Tomorrow we get ready for Denver and that’s all we can really focus on. There’s not too much we can say about the losses we have or really even the wins that we have. We have to continue to progress and get ready for next week.”
Marvin Lewis and the coaches can only say so much about getting this team ready. Who is the voice right now that is going to get this thing turned around?
“I wouldn’t say it’s just one guy. I think we have a lot of guys that step up and want to be a voice. I wouldn’t pinpoint that on one guy. We have a lot of leaders that we expect to step up and they do. It’s just tough right now.”
What’s the biggest difference in the style of Andy Dalton and Jeff Driskel?
“It’s hard to say. They are two great quarterbacks. I think the biggest thing is Jeff can run a little more than Andy. I think that’s one thing that sticks out. They obviously both do things that are really good. Andy has a long, great career doing the things that he does. Jeff comes in and fills that void when he needs to and can do things with his arm and his legs. Jeff fits right in when he comes in.”
