Here’s Lane Johnson last night after that pathetic loss, explaining where the Birds go from here. He alludes to the idea that players have been cutting corners and showing a lack of accountability during the week:
Lane Johnson on next team meeting
“Really its gonna probably be a callout session. Everybody will be held accountable. Little stuff that slides during the week, late to practice, late to meetings. Stuff will be held accountable for. I think that will maybe creep into the games” pic.twitter.com/TveM5JCXC1

“Little stuff that slides during the week.”
Yeah, not good. Gotta snuff that out. Need Doug Pederson to put a foot up somebody’s ass.
Here’s another Johnson clip, this one with Derrick Gunn, that goes into some more detail:

“I think it’s our team not jelling together when it comes to schemes and execution. We knew kind of what Dallas was gonna do, and ultimately they do a lot of slanting and twisting in the front and we didn’t do a good enough job of picking that up. Ultimately, no chunk plays, no big plays down the field to get the momentum turned, and that’s costly.”
I’ve been in situations like this before. Eyeballs will be on you, you will be heavily evaluated, your attitude, your presence, how you work, how you practice. Really, that’s gonna go for everybody.”
Should be a fun week!
