We're not going to change. It's about how we execute and how we can win our one-on-one matchups. If we don't, it's nothing to do with the scheme of things. It's just that we're not performing."
He then laughed and added, "Maybe I ought to make a recording of that."
Right or wrong, I wouldn't expect many players on that defense to say otherwise.
Although, I should point out the week leading up to the Patriots game last year some of the defensive players pulled the "we are who we are" card.
