Q: How do you avoid getting down over the injuries?
A: You just have to hope some of them aren’t serious. Hopefully we can get some of the guys back that were banged up... You’ve just got to move forward, the next man up mentality. Give the opportunity to someone else if some of these guys aren’t going to play.

Q: Did you get a chance to look at the film?
A:  A little bit. Just a lot of mistakes on offense. Red zone execution was terrible. If we score on a couple of times that we get down there, it’s a totally different ball game. We don’t give up six sacks because we’re not getting teed off on in the second half. You get what’s coming to you when you play the Jets. If you dig a hole, that’s their game.

Q: Can you grade this on a curve knowing that it’s a young team’s first road game?
A: No. Some of the mistakes we made were terrible, myself included. We obviously have to bounce back. That was a game that we kind of threw it away. Credit them, they played well and they were able to hit some big plays on us, but that’s on us.
