“It was definitely big to have a couple of days off, catch up on my sleep a little bit. I didn’t travel so I got an extra day in since travel kind of takes up the whole day when I go back to Atlanta. I did some shopping, caught some sales and got some of my Christmas shopping out of the way, sat on the couch and kicked my feet up.
“As far as the game, we were feeling real good about what we were doing out there and then come the second half, later on in the third quarter, the turnover and the adversity there, it kind of unwound for us on offense and defense. It was tough, but it’s something that we have to learn to fight.
“There were some frustrating calls made, one in particular that was called on Brandon Pettigrew. I have no doubt in my mind that we would have gone down and scored on that drive. When we get in the redzone, we’re automatic. It (the penalty) was baffling, but that’s our fortune right there.
“I’m just taking it game-by-game, that’s all you can do right now. Chicago, they have a heck of a defense, a real good front defense. It’s going to be very important that our line come with their mind right and have a good week of practice – and not just them, but everybody. It all starts up front. If they do their job up front, then we’ll be alright. It sucks that we’re 2-9, so there’s no playoffs in the picture, everyone is just playing for their job right now.”
