Per WXYT in Detroit with Stoney and Bill: “Coming off a bad loss like that, which they did the week before, you want to get everything going in the right direction,” Johnson said. “You want to get that nasty taste out of your mouth. We knew they were going to come with it this game and I guess we didn’t respond the way we should have.”
“The lack to be able to come up with that one more big play. I’m not even talking about just offense,” Johnson said. “Even on offense, just coming up with that one more big play that will seal the game or to prolong the drive — things like that, those little things. …You never know what is going to happen on the next play because we are off the field. Little things like that.”
“For the remainder of this season, for playmakers to step up, so you can be here next year or they are going to make some moves as far as that goes, Johnson said. ” It’s as simple as that.”
