Coach Payton didn't have a lot to say during today's post practice interview. Pretty much more of the same, "we have to do better on 3rd down," "we have to adjust to the play faster," and "we have to be quicker at the line of scrimmage as well as populating to the ball." OK coach we'd all love to see that. He did say that he loves the energy Kasim Edebali plays with, both when he was pressed into action because of the injury Junior Galette suffered, as well as when he has played in a relief role.
Sean also said the the return game was the only bright spot during the game against the Panthers. Said that field position would be of great importance during the Monday Night game against the Chicago Bears. The running game as well will likely be very important, as the forecast is for a cold, windy, and rainy game. Sixty or better percent change of rain and temps at game time in the thirties.
