“Saturday was the first time I’ve been to a preseason game at Ford Field that was sold out. It definitely felt like a regular season game just because the crowd was there and they were all into the game. It was big for us to go out there and get that ‘W’. It is preseason, but we had our minds right. We were ready to play, we limited our mistakes and came out with a win.
“As far as the receivers, we’ve still got to work on our technique. We strayed from it a little bit, but Shawn (Jefferson) was on us and we’re going to get back to it. I came out of the game feeling good – no more damage to the shoulder. Still getting better, so as far as that goes, it’s all good.
“Matt has looked good this preseason. He is on point, I will give him that. He is putting the ball where it is supposed to be, when it’s supposed to be there. Then we’re being where we’re supposed to be at, so it all helps out. We’re all coming together and making this thing work out the right way and I think if we keep that up, we stay sharp and stay tight on our details, we could have a heck of a season.
“As far as this week coming up, we need to keep our bodies in shape. I don’t know how much play time the starters are going to get, so we just need to keep our bodies in shape through this week because we’re going to have a couple days off and just staying mentally sharp.”
