Johnson: ‘(Losing) is a sickening feeling. Especially after what we’ve come to experience this season.’Posted by on October 19, 2011 – 3:38 pm
“It had been awhile since we lost. Kind of forget how it feels to lose, but it’s definitely a feeling that you don’t want – I’ll put it like that. We’ve got to do everything we can to just do our job on the field so that it doesn’t happen again. Nobody wants to have that feeling. It’s a sickening feeling. Especially after what we’ve come to experience this season. It’s a drop-off for us, but it’s still early.
“San Francisco is disciplined – I have to say. Especially in the red zone. They’re very disciplined in their secondary. I could see that from watching film of them being in their spots where they’re supposed to be at. They didn’t give me any one-on-one down there so we could put the ball up or anything like that. They did a good job. I have to give them credit for that.
“It’s to that point in the year that, when a team does something successful to stop somebody that’s making plays, somebody else is going to do it too. But at the same time, these coordinators like to stick to what they do. Some of them are are set in their ways and really don’t change much. But at the same time, there are those who are going to do whatever it takes to win. If that means copying somebody else’s play, that’s what they’re going to do.
“I felt I did my job, from watching the film. That’s all I can do every Sunday. I feel I did my job the best I could. Whether I’m getting balls or not – even if it’s through blocking – I have to do my job in all aspects of the game. I felt I did that.
“This week it’ll be another good challenge. Atlanta’s not exactly like San Fran, but definitely a good challenge like San Fran was. We’ve just got to be fundamentally sound, be sharp in our techniques. If everybody can just do their job we’ll be alright.”
