Q: So there is no question about whether he will start?
A: Not in my mind, no.

There is no one else.

Napoleon Harris dislocated his wrist. It's what they call a lunate dislocation and he's in a cast right now. We'll see how he comes through the week and if he's able to play here at the end of the week.


OUCH!

Other than our egos being bruised, those are our injuries. I don't have much more to say than I said last night. We need to focus all of our attention on San Francisco and go forward.

Double OUCH!

Q: Is there any consideration to making changes on the offensive line to help protection and the running game?
A: No, I don't think so. That's really not the kind of game we want to fall into, where we're dropping back and throwing it that many times, but you have to do what you have to do. We had our chances there offensively moving the ball down in there as I mentioned to go 7-7, and then you never know where it goes from there.

True, but we didn't score.
It has been a problem.
We are the worst red zone team in the NFL if I remember correctly.

Q: As you look at the tape of Johnson's interceptions, were there some that you specifically blamed on him and others that were because of situations?
A: The big thing is he has the power of choice when he has that football. Every play doesn't need to be saved. He knows that. There are just some that they have a better defense than you have a play called. Sometimes guys get covered down, etc. Sometimes protection breaks down. In the end, we talk about quarterback as a decision-maker and the power of choice kind of resides in him. Again, we just trust that he'll do the right thing with the football and he's been very good at it obviously over the course of the year.

Overall, I like this philosophy!
Keeps the pressure off the QB to have to make a play.
I think it is a bit to lax at times though.

Also, the they have a better play called than we have a play called.
Sounds like a OC problem, getting out coached.
