“Because I think everything that we’re going to be dealing with is going to be hard here early on. And we’re going to have to really earn the right to win games. So I was proud of their effort. I thought some guys did some better things than they did last week.
“I thought some guys didn’t do some things we asked them to do. That’s part of it. And we’ll learn from it. We have a big week of improvement with a huge, huge home opener on Friday, and that’s what we’re focused in on right now.”
