QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On if he feels a sense of urgency or pressure to get this team turned around:
Yes, sure you do. You’d be lying if you said anything different. You feel a huge responsibility to the organization, to the football team and to the fans. You feel a responsibility to everybody. We want to finish strong and finish on a positive note. We’re one better than we were last year but it doesn’t feel anywhere near like that. You’d like to finish as strong as we possibly can to take us into the next year. Sure I feel that responsibility.
