"It's on us as players, coaches everybody from the top down to get this run game going. It's a lot easier to call second-and-6 than it is to call second-and-9. ... It affects everybody when the run game is not going. Give credit to the two defenses we played, too. They stuffed us, we have to be men and fix it."
