Daboll: Yeah, we didn't get a whole lot going. I don't know, we averaged three-and-a-half yards or something like that? I thought Mike had a good plan coming out the way he did, getting Daniel on the move a little bit and trying to loosen him up, but never really got anything going, not getting any explosives. Gary (Brightwell) had a couple toward the end but we've certainly got to clean that up.

Daboll: Well, certainly he's a good player, so I think you miss all of your good players that aren't out there. But I thought that guys competed that were in there. It was a tough game. We started out, I thought it was a good first half and we just didn't get much going in the second half. And then they had the long drive, we didn't convert on fourth down, they ended up getting some more. The guys competed, we just didn't do enough.

Daboll: Yeah, just come back, do the same stuff we always to each week. Get ready to play a game. Take some rest. It's been a tough 12 days. Obviously, we haven't gotten the results we were looking for but I think we've got to just get a little bit of rest, mental recovery, physical recovery. Come back on Monday and get ready to play another division game. They don't get any easier. Each week is tough, and we'll stick with our practice, our preparation, all the things we need to do to try to go ahead and give us an opportunity to win a game. But, again, it's the ebbs and flows of a season.

Daboll: I'd say, with the run game, everybody needs to do better. It's not always going to be clean. There's going to be some ones, some twos. We've been missing some bigger plays that usually help in the run game. We just haven't popped through there. The blocking, running, the design. We've got to do a better job all the way around I'd say with the run game. Coaching it, executing it. We've got a lot to improve, obviously. That's certainly one of them.

Daboll: Yeah, we tried to move it a little bit and be productive for him on first downs. Change the loss point. Their defensive line is hard to block, so some of those were almost like runs, if you will. Just perimeter runs, you know, the first play to Cager and sliders and things like that. As we were going in the first half, even in the third quarter, they weren't getting a whole lot from it. Mike was just sticking it in there and trying to mix it in. We were like three of 11 on third down, and the longers – I'd say six-plus against this team is a very challenging down. Obviously, we didn't do enough.

Daboll: We put the best game plan we could together. There was definitely a possibility, like I said, we were going to go all the way up until the end, but there was a possibility that there were going to be guys that were missing. So I'd say those guys did a good job throughout the week. And on short weeks you don't do a ton of stuff. You just don't have much time to practice it, so I just think that's the nature of it on a short week.

Daboll: I would say there were a few times in there where we definitely knew we were in four-down territory, so there's an element of having something short. If we need it, we'll go for it on fourth down. Try to make it, instead of fourth-and-nine, a fourth-and-four, fourth-and-three, with the opportunity to still get it. I'd say that happened a few times towards the end of the game.
