You are up 14-10,*you guys forced the turnover in the second half. I mean, that's where you got to slam the door on this thing, right?*

Yeah, we've just got to, like I said, take advantage of bad football. I mean, even with their first touchdown their quarterback fumbles, it just so happened they recovered in the end zone. We fumble the ball on offense and they end up getting on it. So, I think when we talk about that, we call a sudden change on offense on the ball, things don't go away all the time. It's the defense's job to go put the fire out and we didn't do that. They went down to score. So we have to be better on that.

Sometimes guys try to do too much as opposed to let the game come to them?

I don't know who's trying to do too much. I mean, obviously everyone wants to do their job. They don't have to do too much, it's everyone do their job. And I said, I didn't see where guys were doing too much in the game. Like I said, they got two X plays and I think Roger (McCreary) was out there by his self. I know he expects that he can cover the guy. I mean, at the end of the day, we have to be better up front and maybe get a little more pressure. We've got to work together as a team. I didn't see anyone trying to overdo their job, but I guess, I mean, that's not how we play on defense.
