QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Head Coach
Opening statement following the game in Indianapolis:
“I was very proud of our team with the way we came out there. We had a lot of good enthusiasm before the game. This is our first time as coaches being together out on the field. I really like the way we communicated during the course of the game with the trainers, everyone, and the players. Obviously there is still a lot of work to do for us. I had a lot of the young guys out there. Little things that we must get better at obviously are the penalties. I wasn’t very pleased with that and the players understand that. Also the turnovers, we had two turnovers on offense. But I was excited about the turnovers that we created on defense. I think we played very hard. There are a lot of things that we have to get better at, but at the same time there are a lot of good things out there. It’s the first game. I told the players I’m excited that we won. I think that’s important, that’s the goal. Now we need to move forward and make those corrections. Next time we take the field, which is going to be tomorrow, we need to learn from these mistakes and be a better football team.”
