What did C.J. Gardner-Johnson say?

Gardner-Johnson is a veteran and he knows that an NFL season is long, and there is no point in putting too much stock into one loss.

“This is a marathon,” Gardner-Johnson said. “We’re not worried about one loss. We’re not hyping up pregame, none of that. Everybody fought hard on both sides of the ball, and the best team won today. Ain’t nothing you can say, ain’t nothing you can do. Just gotta do better on our end, get necessary stops, get the ball back to the offense and let them go down and score.” 

“All around, from top to bottom, simple as that. We gave up 300-some yards, not good enough. We gave up 37 points, not good enough. You’re never gonna win a championship that way. That’s on us, as players, to go in day-by-day. Not saying we’re not, just gotta day-by-day with that bad taste in our mouth, this is what it feels like.”

  1. It doesn’t help the defense has had not one sack over two games and the secondary still is suspect. I thought we looked pretty good against the run, though.
