LH: One of the big aspects of the Rob Ryan defense is substitutions, there’s a lot of them. I take it that no-huddle offense disrupted that a little bit.
GS: Yeah, it kinda did. But at the same time, we did practice that. He (Rob) would sub in one or two guys. You’d just have to know what the package was and be ready to sprint off the field because usually that no-huddle offense doesn’t substitute. But they did a good job of substituting during their no-huddle offense. We just had to get guys on and off the field quickly. I think we had one ’12 men on the field’ penalty called on us, but as far has handling the adversity, I think the guys did a good job.
LH: Even looking back to the second half of the season last year, it seems like the outcome of every game you guys play come down to the final moments in 4th quarter. How does that emotional roller coaster every week effect you and the team?
GS: You know we’re always disappointed with those losses. But like I said, we have to find a way to win those games. We’re just not doing a good job of closing games right now. But I think the world knows and sees the team that we have. You know, we have a real talented team. It’s not like we’re losing these games by a lot. We’re just coming out of situational football and need to be able to close out games. But we have an awesome team. I love playing with these guys. We are going to be something special. We’re about to pull this thing together and go on a heck of a run right now. I can see it going forward.
