Here is what some of the players and coaches had to say after the embarrassing loss to the Packers.
Obviously we didn’t play very well at all today against a team that I thought we would play much better against. On the offensive side of the ball, we struggled, turned the ball over and missed plays that were there for us. We lost confidence in what we were doing because of having a lot of different guys playing due to injuries. We got behind early and we were forced to throw much more than we wanted to. You aren’t going to win many games when you go three-and-out the first three times and turn the ball over twice against a good football team at home.
It is tough. It is never easy to lose, especially like this. You just have to keep working and find ways to overcome it and get better. There are a bunch of things that you can point to today, but it just seemed like that there were a lot of opportunities that we didn’t capitalize on today.
I don't think anybody quit, I just think they came out there and were the better team today. They showed it out there, they executed, they played and stepped up on defense and they executed in all phases of the game.
We're coming together. We're still a young team and I think we are getting better each and every week. You can tell that by the practice, even though you can't tell it on the field. We got some guys injured and we couldn't really get things going, so that really hurt us today.
We still believe in Jake. He is our guy moving forward, and he needs to grow and he needs to grow fast. But we need to help him. We can’t give up seven sacks — I don’t care who is playing on the offensive line. We need to do our jobs. You want good quarterback play? Well, the other 10 guys around him have to play well.
