Broyles: “Hearing the fans boo was definitely a culture shock”

“Looking back to last Sunday’s game – we have to make things happen in the red zone, take advantage of every opportunity we get, clean up some mental mistakes, some concentration things. We feel like we beat ourselves more than anything. Offensively we just have to continue to grind it out. It’s a long season.

“Coming out of the game, giving up that kickoff, that kind of made things flat, and it made the fans flat as well. It’s kind of tough on us, coming back from a 7-0 deficit at the very beginning of the game, so we had to dig ourselves out of a hole and obviously we couldn’t do that.

“I’m just going to continue to do what I can. When my number gets called, I have to make the best of it. I dropped a pass. That was out of character for me. Got lost in the game more than anything, so I just have to make the best of every opportunity I have.

“Hearing the fans boo was definitely a culture shock. Coming from Oklahoma, that never happens. Fans are behind you no matter what. They expect to win. The fans understand their job and that’s to cheer and get the team going. Out here, I guess the NFL’s a different story. That’s what people say. They pay for us to produce, which does make sense, but at the same time you need the fans. We go out here and make big plays for them to cheer, so I feel like it’s a collective thing. That was why I tweeted about the booing. First time deal for me, and I just felt like that wasn’t right. We’re on the same team basically.

“For our days off, we just need to rest up and get our mind right to come back for a 12-game stretch. We’re in the hole right now, 1-3, so we can make that up here coming up.”
