Quotebook: Players speak out
QB Drew Weatherford
On their first half problems:
"It's just too little too late. We can't play one good half of football against at good team and expect to win. Our defense and special teams tried to save us again, but they just weren't able to hold on. We were playing a really talented team and they made more plays than we did and that showed in the outcome."
"I have no idea. We're not putting enough pressure on ourselves to come out in the beginning of the game and play well. We seem to wait for another team to get up to put the pressure on us. I don't know if that's a lack of leadership on the offensive part or what, but we have to fix that."
On what has happened to the passing game:
"I don't know. To be honest, that's something we're going to have to figure out. Our running game was better. We couldn't throw the ball at all. I don't know what happened in the throwing department. We just need to be able to do both to beat good teams and we just haven't been able to do so. If we were able to throw the ball like we have in the previous two games, and run the ball like we did tonight, would have won, I feel like."
