The Morning Fix

The main thing I tell the kids is not to get discouraged when they mess up on a play or drill. You’re going to mess up sometimes; I mess up, everybody messes up. The biggest thing is how you bounce back from it.

The example I use is, if you walk around with your head down in a game and you’re going against Peyton Manning, he’s going to see you with your head down and he’s going to keep coming after you. But if you come back strong, break up some passes and show that you’ve got heart, he’ll look for somewhere else to throw.

With McGraw, that’s the case — he is still an important part of the defense on Monday through Saturday and, not as often anymore, on Sunday. He’s part of the old guard in a very young secondary and a few of those guys like CB Brandon Flowers and S Eric Berry have said that McGraw is the elder statesman back there and he does a good job of keeping everyone informed of what play it is, where they should be and little things like that. He should stick around for another year.

Hey bill, the best player in the AFC West if he chooses to stay which I think he will is Nnamdi Asomugha. I realize there are a lot of other great players in the AFC West like Philip Rivers, Jamal Charles, Richard Seymour, and Champ Bailey. Plus the great talent from years previous drafts and this ones products such as Eric Berry, Darren McFadden, and Dwayne Bowe. Nnamdi is special.
