The remains of the locker room
October 9, 2022
Joe had been scrolling through his phone to hear some of the quotes he’s cooked up from players this week. Here are some nuggets:
(On why the Dixie Chicks should be great today.)
“They are playing with a lot of momentum right now. They won twice in a row.
(On how the recent run defense hiccups are just a gasp.)
“Yes, it’s football. It happens sometimes. All we can do is learn from it. We just have to do better. We are professionals. We have to manage our business.
(Assess the defense through four games.)
“Still [can see] a lot of improvement, but it’s promising. Some of the things we have put in place have not lived up to our standards. We are still progressing. We are still improving. We still have a lot of confidence in what we are doing defensively. We still have to produce four full quarters.
(What specifically the defense needs to improve on to become a championship defense again.)
“We have to go back to our bread and butter and stop racing. The teams have become a little too comfortable with the race. If we take care of that, everything else will take care of itself.
(On if he gets more shots because his production seems to warrant more playing time.)
“I know if I’m able to help the team win, I’ll do whatever it takes.”
