“Last week, I definitely felt better about me getting into the game plan a little bit more there for the first half. I didn’t get my second half catch, but it definitely felt better. I got a little bit more keyed up for this week so we’ll see what happens.
“It was probably the biggest crowd I’ve been around. In college it was big but it wasn’t anything like that. It was loud, it was great, great atmosphere.
“I don’t really know what to think about that the differences in the offense from the first half to the second. I thought we had a great preparation with practice and the first half showed it. The second half we just kind of fell off, we didn’t get it done. I don’t know what happened but we’ll try not to let it happen this week.
“Coach Schwartz and Coach Linehan said that we had the attitude - you could tell - and it’s clear we had the attitude that we want to get it done. But, like I said, it’s just mental. It’s really just us, it’s not anything they were doing.
“Washington is probably going to jump up on Calvin like any other team would, so I’ve just really got to be on task and make sure I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing and be where I’m supposed to be.
“That’ll be important, especially this week and we definitely don’t want to get away from the run because that’ll open up the pass for us. It’s just the attitude.”
