Larry Fedora Postgame Quotes
"I'll be honest with you - good to get it over with. Our team had a great spring. We really did. We've come a long way. We've got a long way to go, but you got to see a few guys get out there and make some plays today. A lot of mistakes. A lot of guys. Anytime you split the team, you get real thin in a lot of areas, and it makes it that much tougher. The continuity is really hard. But the guys played hard today and that was the main thing."
On the running backs
"Really I thought all three of them played well. But Khris (Francis), for his first time out there in a game-type atmosphere, he did a good job. I don't know what he ended up with, but he hit some holes and exploded in them. One time I said I thought he got stood up. I said something to him and the next time he's got his shoulders down and he's running north-south. That's what he's got to do, so he did some nice things."
"The thing about Khris is that Khris doesn't say a word. It's hard to get him to talk, but he's listening all the time. He takes coaching very well and he can. What he does a nice job of is you can say something and he can just take it to the field immediately and make it happen."
On the energy level
"It was really good today. You should always have a great energy level in today's type atmosphere. You've got all the things going out outside the stadium, inside the stadium. They saw the uniforms last night and they were jacked up about that. It was about them having fun today, and they did that."
On today's performance and moving forward
"I know we've got a long way to go. Up front on both sides of the ball we've still got to do a much better job. Defensively, we've got to stop the run. We were getting gassed in a lot of different areas. Offensively our tempo was very, very average to say the least. I didn't think there was anything special about it. You didn't see anything from our special teams today other than a few kicks and punts. We've got 138 days left. We've got a long way to go in 138 days."
