“His interceptions, obviously, are not crazy. They’re higher than I want,” Kelly said.

“It’s the combination of making four or five really, really good plays and maybe one or two not so good plays. So I think where we are in the development is obviously playing more consistently.”

Kelly’s not used to losing and he’s certainly not ready to chuck what he believes in after just four games.

“What allows you to plow through those times is probably your experience, you’re going through it before and having experienced all of those things,” he said.

“You take over a new company as the CEO, and you’re having a rough quarter, you know. You’re going, `OK, I’m not sure what’s coming up here, but I’m going to stick with what I’ve been doing and know that it’s worked in the past and it’s just a matter of time.’ That’s kind of what we’re going through right now.”

Kelly’s evaluation of an offensive line that has three news starters is that it’s been fairly good. But he added that center Braxston Cave needs to work on his cadence and his shotgun snaps, some of which come out below Crist’s knees and force the quarterback to take his eyes off what is in front of him.

Kelly said fifth-year senior center Dan Wenger, who suffered two concussions during preseason camp and has not played this season, will have another evaluation next week before a final decision is made whether he can return or be shut down.
