Allen: 'We executed better'
That's part of being able run the football is. And -- score gets to a point word drivel and continue running continue running continue to run in immensely. You know you're able to to Wear the defense down bitten and I thought we were able to do that Solomon. You know there was -- get a few big runs -- into the game. Well I -- that you know I think. I'm thicker guys kept tightening kept battle and and and we were we were confident that we really come into play well. And in our guys know we made enough plays at the end data on to win the game that's it in Davis which are looking for. I mean -- I think it was just you know. Part of how the game played out I mean. You know we wanted to be able take couple shots over there but. I think he gained just dictated that you know based on what they were playing in the the ball went there a little bit more often. Wetzel ethic our offensive line did an outstanding job. You as far as protecting the quarterback. You know obviously we we all feel like in in in which that we would have been able rumbled the better earlier in the game it. But you we just kept battling kept fighting. I was proud group they're banged up pretty good right now Vietnam. -- now I was proud of the way they competed. You know four quarters today and in. Poker -- what. Went on and I think we just we executed better. You know and and that's part of the way that it is in the national fumble late in mean you don't play. You know the same every week. The key is can you overcome when you don't play well and still win football games. That's what we're early last week I think this week we came out and I think we executed well for -- getting in the game and we were able in your home if you takeaways during the game that was critical. To let the score to -- -- was a huge. Huge I mean you get to get seven points there at that point game was. Was a big break for us. You know in in a big momentum builder for us. And so that was that was huge point game -- Outstanding. Yeah -- really well. I thought he managed the game really well. Obama thought he was. -- he has tremendous poise. You know week -- convert one of the few times -- felt like they got pressure on me still labels step bombed and throw the ball the down payment of our big. First down conversions so. I'm not likely outstanding game. Yeah calm you know I was you know if you wanna point out -- negative. There were things for a game -- mean you know and think we caught the balls wills what should have -- We left some plays out there on the field in so we still a lot of things that we had it cleaned up one thing we got to get better at doing. But the good thing is where it will make those corrections after win now. No it was pretty much the same game plan. You know and in we we we figured that if we -- it will put pressure. You know for covered match that is the human and try to pull and a global now runs on. You know that's exactly what they did. You know that was probably the the thing on defense that we get it cleaned up as much as anything aces and when the quarterback on -- tramples. No we we you know I think our guys up front you know our linebackers and in and you know usually hands you know blocks and make some plays and in limit -- -- -- -- running game was concerned because that's. That was an explosive offense of -- plays -- running games concern -- that was. Focus or going in the in the football game felt like we did a good job there yeah I think so I think so on you know and in. You know obviously. Early in the year you know in the he missed. A lot of the offseason program and then missed a lot of training camp you know it takes a little bit of time to kind of get. Really back in football shape it takes a little bit of time to get that timing back so. You know I believe he's he's getting there. You know round and form a little bit more. Well I mean again it it's just something that you you'd be fighting -- week and you battle week in and our guys understand that we can hand down. Penalties that cost our team and we were better in that this week and we got to continue to improve in that area. Yeah we get we have confidence in all organized. There is great job of kitchen underneath route. Make a couple guys miss but a lot of yards after contact there and that's one of the things we. We spent a lot of time on talking about yards after contact but we did a good job there today. We knew that was going to be key coming into the game. It was a critical factors in who win football games in -- As it is every week you know accurate when the eternal take away ratio years you know -- -- chance to win football games so I thought that was critical stat. In the game fact we were you know we won 41 Utley was on the turnover ratio yeah I mean you know I think our guys got confidence that we can go out and compete in. On that we can win football games. But like I told them in there you know. This one's only important year if you go out when the next one so we've got a big week coming up in front of us now we've got a good Tampa -- team that's coming off of a couple of extra days rest and now we've we've got huge counts for -- all. We'll probably know once we get home you know where we're Satan and who won the game so. Yeah will will will line. See what happens in the game but you know in the day. You know really didn't have any bearing on how we get ready and prepared to play Tampa today.
