“Overall, we had chances. We did have some lapses. We had some bad field position, but still had opportunities. We let some things go, had two turnovers. The Bears were sitting back the whole game – Cover 2. Kind of like the same thing they did last year. We really couldn’t get anything going against them.
“The bright spot to me was the two-minute drive we had at the end of the game. We went down and we did some good things on that drive – I’ll leave it at that.
“It’s tough to have your leader go down, being your quarterback – that sucks. But at the same time, the bright spot in that is just having Shaun Hill, the veteran. He knows the offense just as well as Matt does, so our offense shouldn’t really miss a beat.
“The only thing I can say to the fans is that it’s one game out of 16. We’re going to try to bring it, but we do have to step it up a little bit. We can’t go into any lapses coming out after halftime when we get the ball first. We’ve got to be able to do something to at least put our offense in good field position.
“But, other than that, based on the play: I caught it, no doubt, but it’s the rule. They found a rule real fast and put it to use.”
