Following an afternoon of meetings, Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer was the only player to speak to the media on Monday following a 31-19 loss at Denver. Here is what he said:
HOW WAS THE MOOD TODAY?
“Everybody is fine. Sure they are disappointed with the loss but it’s early in season and we will move on. We will just learn from our situation and move on and get better and get ready for New York.”
HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR PERFORMANCE?
“I did OK. I made some mistakes that are unacceptable in our room. They are things that will get done and get fixed as a unit and we will be better this week.”
DID YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO FIX?
“Just little minor things — fundamental things. It is the little things that make us better players and a better unit. Just minor details.”
CAN’T AFFORD TO GO 0-2?
“This week is very important. Every week is very important. Unfortunately, the first week didn’t go the way we wanted. We are going to make sure this week we will put ourselves in better situations — better than we did last week.”
DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE A PRETTY GOOD GRASP OF WHAT TODD HALEY WANTED OFFENSIVELY?
“We didn’t pretty well controlling the ball and making plays. We have to make better opportunities when we get into the red zone.”
DOWN TO FIVE LINEMEN, HOW TOUGH WAS IT?
“That’s unfortunate but the guys who came in did a good job. We still made plays after they got hurt.”
YOU SOLIDIFIED THE CONFIDENCE THE COACHES HAVE IN YOU
“I always think there is room for improvement. I am never satisfied with anything I do. Every day is an interview with us in Pittsburgh. That’s the way I am going to keep going.”
YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO RAMON FOSTER?
“I have no clue what happened. I didn’t see it. I just know he wasn’t playing the second half.”
