KANSAS CITY CHIEFS VS DETROIT LIONS WEEK 4 2019 RECAP
Detroit Lions Head Coach Matt Patricia opening statement after Sunday’s loss to Kansas City.
“OK, all right – obviously extremely disappointed that we didn’t win the game. We expect to win all of the games that we play. I’ll say that. I’ll say this: I am really proud of this group. I think this is an extremely tough, mentally tough team. I think they fight, I think they’ll play, I think they go out and compete, and I am proud of them for that. But we’re obviously disappointed that we didn’t win the game. I think there were a lot of plays out there that we all wish we could have back, and I’ve got to coach better. I’ve got to get the team ready to go and have got to get some of the details cleaned up and, you know, we’ll do that here as we push toward the bye week. But I thought those guys, just, they hung in there regardless of what the circumstance was, what the situation of the game was. The team doesn’t blink. They just keep going forward. So we have got to build on that, hopefully we can continue that, and then clean up some of the execution and then go from there. We obviously have got, you know, the bye week here, so we can go back and take a look at some of the things that we’ve got to improve on, but, you know, we’ve got a long stretch in front of us. It’s a long season and we’ve just got to continue to try to get better. But, you know, give that team, give those players a lot of credit for going out and fighting extremely hard and we’ve got to coach it better so that we can give ourselves a chance to win.”
