Credit to the Kansas City Chiefs – they fabricated the plays bottomward the amplitude that it takes to win these types of games. I apperceive our aggregation is acutely disappointed. We had every befalling to win the football bold and we did not – coaches, players, staff; not any one person, all of us – we did not accomplish the plays to win the game. We came actuality to win, we didn’t get it done and so we’ll arch aback to Charlotte and abide to assignment on accepting accessible for abutting week.
RE: The aggressiveness on the aboriginal two drives of the game
I anticipate we acquainted like we had acceptable plays. We went for it alert aftermost anniversary on fourth bottomward and didn’t get them, so I don’t anticipate it was any altered mindset this week. [Special teams coordinator] Chase [Blackburn] and [assistant appropriate teams coordinator] Ed [Foley] had a abundant punt affected that they anticipation would be up and I was activity to use it on the aboriginal drive but we converted, so I acclimated it on the additional drive. We aloof acquainted like those things were there. Later on, we acutely adapted the fourth-and-19, that was aloof added of a ‘hey, what abroad can you do in the bold but that.’ We came to win. We came to comedy to win. We capital to get a win and approved to comedy that way.
RE: Update on Christian McCaffrey
I don’t apperceive annihilation about him injury-wise. No one’s adapted me, annihilation about him yet. Usually, as I get on the plane, I get anything. I anticipation Christian did a nice job, fabricated plays for us as he consistently does.
RE: If the mindset activity adjoin the reining Super Bowl champions was accepting to “match them draft for blow”
I don’t anticipate it was annihilation about them because that (the fourth bottomward conversion) was on the aboriginal drive and afresh we captivated them to a acreage ambition on their aboriginal drive – it was aloof bottomward in there tight. We acquainted like attractive aback over the beforehand of our year what’s kept us from acceptable added amateur has been, not affective the football but it’s been scoring touchdowns, not acreage goals, so went for the fourth-and-four. The punt fake, to me, we anticipation we had it and it was one that if we didn’t accept the attending we could analysis out of it. Obviously, those things that are well-designed like that accomplish it a lot easier to execute, to call, because you apperceive that the way they’re set up, they will be executed.
RE: The accommodation to go for the aboriginal onside kick
They were lined up 15 yards off the ball. That’s article that we convenance all the time. We were bottomward two array and we’d been watching it all game, we acquainted like we had it. I aloof said aback we account actuality – whether it’s a touchdown or acreage ambition – do we anticipate we accept it? We anticipation we had it, so we went for it. And the accomplishment was if we didn’t get it, we’d authority them to a acreage ambition because we denticulate a touchdown and still accomplish it a one-score game. We anticipation we had it, aloof that the brawl didn’t go 10 yards. If the brawl goes 10 yards there, I anticipate we apparently balance it. Drive was on our side. Afresh they confused the brawl bottomward and we had them chock-full on third-and-eight but we jumped offsides. If we don’t jump offsides there, we authority them to a acreage goal, it’s still a six-point bold and acutely a lot different. That’s aloof a alarm that I made. Those are decisions that I accept to make. I accept to alive with them. I’d acquaint you I’d do it again. I anticipation we had it and we aloof weren’t absolutely able to assassinate it.
RE: Whether the fourth bottomward conversions motivated the team
I don’t anticipate our players had any issues actuality motivated. They had a abundant anniversary of practice, I anticipate they came in actuality accessible to go. I anticipation we had guys advancing aback off of abrasion battling. I anticipation our guys played absolutely adamantine all day. We aloof fabricated too abounding little mistakes. It wasn’t like a all-inclusive difference, we had guys arena guys absolute and guys let guys get abroad from them. We had too abounding penalties on offense. Not any one person, aloof all of us as a team, collectively, aloof didn’t do abundant to win the bold – and that starts with me as the arch coach. Aback you accept 12 penalties in a game, it’s adamantine to deserve to win that game. To comedy a aggregation as acceptable as the Chiefs, it has to be a three, four, five, six amends game. It can’t be a 12-penalty game.
RE: The drive the fourth bottomward conversions provided
Well yeah, they led to touchdowns and I anticipate that that’s what we needed. We bare some energy, but I anticipate our guys were actuality to comedy no amount what. They came alive it was activity to be a battle. They fought aback – we took the beforehand and fought back. We had every adventitious to win the game.
RE: The controlling action on the final drive
One of the capital issues on that drive was the calmly to the face, that absolutely set us back. Curtis [Samuel] fabricated a abundant play, got bottomward and accustomed us to fasten the ball. We were aggravating to get the brawl up bristles or 10 yards to booty a adventitious at the acreage goal. We had one of those plays advised area it was like bandy the Hail Mary on the one ancillary and on the added ancillary was the out route. Teddy [Bridgewater] threw the out avenue and larboard two abnormal out there. We had the wind at our aback so we anticipation our best adventitious was to bang it. Obviously, it didn’t assignment but it was a continued way to go which the amends absolutely didn’t help.
RE: The aberration McCaffrey makes on breach in the red zone
He denticulate alert today. He’s a abundant amateur and abundant players appearance up in acute areas at acute times – third down, red zone, two minute, all those things – and he showed up in those areas today; he about denticulate addition touchdown appropriate afore the two minute warning. Or I assumption he did appropriate afterwards so he had three touchdowns, alibi me. But our adeptness to run the football after-effects in way added red area touchdowns and he did a acceptable job.
RE: Realizing there are no moral victories, but what this bold says about area the aggregation is appropriate now
Like you said, there are no moral victories in this game. The guys, we fought, we gave ourselves a adventitious to win the bold at the end. Hats off to the Chiefs, they are abundant football team, they came up on top and we came up aloof short.
RE: What happened on the fourth down-and-14 run
It was aloof one of those deals as I was running, I aloof looked to the amusement to see area the chains were. I knew if I would accept went bottomward arch first, they ability accept apparent me bottomward a little shorter, so I ability accept been a little abbreviate so I aloof absitively to booty flight and cede my anatomy and try to get the aboriginal down.
RE: What you appetite to appetite to appearance your teammates aback you accomplish a comedy like that
It’s candidly one of those deals area we could all aloof cede for bristles seconds, six seconds, for 60 plays a game, 70 plays a bold and aloof accord all our effort, afresh we are a boxy team. For me it’s aloof absent to abide to appearance the guys that this game, this aggregation agency so abundant to me and I will do whatever I can to win. This situation, got out of the pocket, had a nice beforehand acquaintance and aloof approved to accomplish a play.
RE: What impact, if any, abhorrent coordinator Joe Brady actuality on the amusement had today
I anticipate Joe [Brady] has been agog to be on the sideline. I apperceive he says it’s abundant calmer up in the booth, but aloof accepting Joe on the sideline, his calm demeanor, he was consistently even-keeled throughout the beforehand of the game; so that was acceptable to see, that was acceptable for me. We were able to communicate, instead of accepting to get on the headset, he’s able to see the bold at acreage level, he was able to go bottomward and allocution to the abhorrent line, allocution to the receivers and things like that. So I anticipate that was appealing acceptable for him to be bottomward there.
RE: Accepting Christian McCaffrey aback and how Bridgewater bend these abutting amateur area the aggregation is advancing up aloof short
To acknowledgment that aboriginal question, it was absolutely acceptable accepting Christian [McCaffrey] aback this week. He fought for us, he ran hard, he put the brawl out of the backfield, best up guys in aegis and afresh aback Mike [Davis] came in, Mike fabricated some plays as well. It was acceptable to aloof accept both of those guys rolling.
When you anticipate about how we are advancing up abbreviate in these games, you apperceive a bold like today, it pisses you off, abnormally aback you comedy a aggregation as acceptable as the Chiefs are, that’s a abundant football team. We don’t appetite it to be the accepted affair of actuality appropriate there. Obviously, you lose a game, sometimes you are able to apprentice from it and bound put it behind. This is one of those amateur that pisses you off a little bit, at atomic it should piss you off. We will appear in tomorrow, blubbery skin, watch the tape, be judgmental of anniversary added and be honest with anniversary other.
RE: Aback the aggregation goes draft for draft with the arresting Super Bowl champions, if there is account to the aggregation bottomward the road
Of beforehand it does, bottomward the road, but appropriate now, we talked about there are no moral victories. With a bold like this you appear up short, it’s like man you are able to, yeah, admeasurement yourself abutting to the arresting champs but at the aforementioned time you don’t appetite to be annoyed with aloof advancing up short. We comedy this bold to win. We can calmly say we fought, we played tough, that’s what we did, but we didn’t appear up with the victory. So, I anticipate we aloof accept to get aback to assignment abutting week, apprehend some of the things we did wrong. I apperceive we had some penalties, aloof some things that prevented us from acceptable this game. Like I said the Chiefs are a abundant football team, they did aggregate to win that game, and we did aggregate to not win that game.
RE: Your mindset on that final drive, accurately as a brace plays accomplished inbounds and not out of bound with no timeouts, and thoughts on Joey Slye’s final kick
The bearings that we were in, we didn’t accept any timeouts and I am appealing abiding the Chiefs were acquainted of the bearings as well. We aloof capital to try to beforehand the brawl as fast as possible. Maybe do we ambition we could accept got out of bound more, yeah, but the aegis that they were arena was arresting the sidelines, had to booty what they accord you. We hit a big comedy to Curtis [Samuel] bottomward the average of the acreage which gave us a chance, afresh you try to booty a bargain bristles yards to put us in acreage ambition ambit or article like that to DJ [Moore] but they did a abundant job of actuality able for it. It’s boxy on Joey [Slye] to try to bang a 67-yard acreage ambition in this environment. We aloof came up abbreviate as a aggregation and it’s activity to be on us to fix this.
RE: Activity adjoin Patrick Mahommes today
We aloof accept to comedy better. It was a abutting game, we accept to stop accomplishing self-inflicted wounds on defense. We had a chance.
RE: If man or area was alive bigger adjoin Travis Kelce
We’ve aloof got to assassinate in both man and zone. He is a abundant bound end, one of the bigger bound ends we played adjoin this year. We knew he was a big ambition for them, we’ve aloof got to assassinate our play.
RE: Aback you are able to get as abutting as you are accepting but you are not accepting over the hump, what that does to the aggregation mentally and how he feels they accept to advance to get there
We’ve aloof got to accumulate going. Self-inflicted wounds, I beggarly that’s what’s killing us. Everybody knows football, you can’t win with penalties. That is what happened to us, abnormally on the arresting side, self-inflicted wounds. We gave them plays that they shouldn’t accept got.
RE: If go toe-to-toe with the arresting Super Bowl Champions helps the aggregation bottomward the road
I beggarly all of our amateur that we absent were close, we’ve aloof got to acquisition that itch. Like I said if you go aback to all of the amateur that we lost, it’s aloof self-inflicted wounds that we got, abnormally from the arresting side, I’ll aloof allege on the arresting side. We’ve aloof got to cut those out, not jump offsides, not holding, aloof do our jobs at the end of the day.
RE: The appulse of not accepting Jeremy Chinn and how he acquainted guys stepped up afterwards him
Everybody stepped up, everybody did their job. I’m absolutely appreciative of Sam Franklin. Sam Franklin came out there and played, he did well. [Inaudible] we can’t delay to accept Chinn back, but everybody stepped up and did their part. We’ve aloof got to finish.
RE: The bulletin that Drillmaster Rhule delivered to the aggregation afterwards the bold and how it was received
We’ve aloof got to win. We’ve got to acquisition a way to win. Stop assault ourselves, like I kept saying, aloof self-inflicted wounds that happens to us. It’s a amateur of inches and those are the amateur of inches that we need. Once we stop accomplishing that, we are activity to be a hell of a team.
RE: Falling aloof abbreviate of wins in the aftermost few games
I anticipate it’s axiomatic that we’re abutting but abutting isn’t acceptable abundant because we’re not accepting those victories. I aloof anticipate it trickles bottomward to us not assault ourselves and acceptance those mistakes, and eliminating that actuality so we can accept a cleaner bold and a bigger befalling to win.
RE: How the accident during Matt Rhule’s aboriginal seasons at Temple compares to now and the Panthers
I don’t absolutely remember, that was a continued time ago. I don’t absolutely feel like that’s relevant.
RE: Whether opponents access the Panthers abnormally with Christian McCaffrey on the field
I can’t absolutely say a aberration because we never played the Chiefs, so I can’t absolutely say a difference.
RE: Whether they talked in convenance about actuality advancing on fourth downs
I anticipate that’s consistently article that Drillmaster [Rhule] has preached that he’ll consistently be advancing about and that’s article that he’s let us apperceive aboriginal in the year. I anticipate that was aloof activation of the moment, we acquainted like that’s article we could get done.
RE: Whether the aggressiveness gives the players a faculty of urgency
I anticipate that’s aloof us aggravating to accomplish it appear and laying it all on the line. I anticipate it’s aloof trickled bottomward to artlessly arena with affection and the appetite to and him [quarterback Teddy Bridgewater] absolutely laying it all on the band to accumulate the chains activity and aggravating to action for that win.
RE: How Teddy Bridgewater diving for a aboriginal bottomward galvanizes the team
Seeing your quarterback giving his all is activity to accomplish everybody abroad footfall it up a notch. You’ve got to absolutely account that because a lot of quarterbacks apparently wouldn’t put themselves out there to be that accessible in that situation, so you’ve got to absolutely account that.
RE: Abhorrent coordinator Joe Brady apprenticeship from the sidelines instead of the booth
There was a lot added communication, acutely added than any added bold because he’s up there in the box so we don’t absolutely apprehend from him. We’re added so audition him through the coaches but not that much, so I anticipate it was apparently bigger for us because he’s able to acquaint what he’s seeing afterwards plays and aloof honing in on little capacity and things like that with him actuality bottomward there.
RE: How the breach can advance to get over the hump
Just actuality answerable for our mistakes and alive that those things aching us; alive that if we annihilate those things, things go a lot smoother. Aloof not assault ourselves – it’s as simple as that I feel.
RE: Touchdown by Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill
I’m activity to go advanced and aloof say that was on me – a miscommunication with my corners. I’m the abysmal average guy. I’ve got to let them apperceive if we’re activity area or break on the man. I aloof gave advice to one ancillary and didn’t get it to the added ancillary in time. That’s absolutely on me. I told my guys that I’m demography abounding albatross for that.
RE: Why Travis Kelce was so difficult to stop today
They’ve got a abundant quarterback that places the brawl in abundant positions. They do abundant things putting him in altered spots so you can’t absolutely columnist him sometimes and he gets chargeless releases. It was aloof a accumulated lot of things – the quarterback extending plays and him aloof award accessible gaps and afresh him aloof active acceptable routes too.
RE: Actuality abutting in amateur but not advancing out with wins
It’s us. We apperceive this. Bottomward the stretch, I anticipate we had abutting to eight penalties or article like that. We aloof can’t exhausted ourselves bottomward the amplitude during abutting games. We’ve aloof got to do bigger as a whole. We’re not activity to point fingers at any one guy and say it’s his fault. It’s all our fault. We’ve aloof got to be bigger as a team.
RE: Arena adjoin Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes
Defending him is absolutely adamantine because he’s a guy that extends plays. They allocution about, like his 40-time, but that doesn’t absolutely amount aback you’re out there on the field. He extends plays, he finds accessible guys, he can bandy the brawl to any allotment of the field. He makes the appropriate reads. So he aloof does a aggregate of a lot of things you accept to accumulate clue of. Best abridged passer quarterbacks, if you get them off the spot, afresh they absolutely aren’t acceptable on the run and can’t absolutely move. Patrick is a altered beast. He can move up in the abridged and extend plays. He can bandy the brawl underhand, overhand, sidearm – there are aloof so abounding means that he can advance you. Afresh with the athletes that they do have, it’s like they’re activity to get open, they’re activity to accomplish their plays. You’ve aloof got to try to absolute them. In the aboriginal half, I acquainted like we were accomplishing a abundant job. Andy [Reid], he’s a abundant [play caller]. He’s activity to appear in, about-face things up. He’s activity to accomplish it adamantine for us to accumulate arresting him.
I was the backward guy that was declared to be advancing on the blitz. I did what I had to do. [Brian] Burns affected him up in the abridged and aback he stepped up I aloof took my bend and I aloof captivated up and was aloof captivation on for the best.
RE: What this bold says about the Panthers adolescent defense
It shows us how acceptable we are as a team. But we’re not activity to booty actuality abutting as an achievement. We appetite to win and in this league, acceptable is the best important thing. That’s what we came actuality to do today. We’re not attractive for any moral victories or annihilation like that. This aloof shows us that we are in a abundant position. Like I said earlier, if we aloof don’t exhausted ourselves at the end and we’re not one or two plays late, we can win that brawl game. Those guys aren’t the arresting champs for nothing.
RE: His canyon on the affected punt
Yeah, we went out there alive – we alarm it [inaudible]. We accept a analysis out of it but acutely we didn’t. We got the attending we wanted, we ran it and completed it so it was awesome.
RE: How abounding passes he’s completed in a bold and the beheading of the comedy with the Chiefs burden nearing
In a game, none. Never had the opportunity. I acquainted it advancing but Zylstra was advanced accessible and I got the brawl to him. It was a acceptable pass.
RE: Carolina’s aggressiveness on appropriate teams
Personally, I adulation it. I anticipate it’s acceptable for our aggregation and acutely it’s not my ability to allocution on that, but I alone like it.

It was absolutely a airy day, but we accept the absolute aplomb in Joey to hit that ball. I’ve apparent him do it before. I anticipate the accomplished team’s assured in him hitting that. I anticipate it was a acceptable call.
RE: His thoughts on Slye’s kick
I mean, I’m attractive bottomward at the ball, at the hold. It articulate good. Joey crushes the ball. Every brawl that comes off his bottom sounds like thunder.
RE: The longest bang he’s apparent Slye make
I’m appealing abiding he lined up for a 70 one convenance and hit it. Joey’s got a strong, able leg. I don’t anticipate I’ve anytime apparent annihilation like it. He can hit a bomb.
RE: The final acreage ambition attack and the aboriginal onside kick
The 67(-yard attempt), I feel assured in myself that I’m able to accomplish those bliss or at atomic accept the leg backbone for them. That one, we had a appealing abundant left-to-right wind, so the brawl is activity to tend to achromatize to the right. With the way the wind was blowing, it acquainted like there was wind in my face on that one, agnate to what was on the 51(-yard attempt) – we had a right-to-left wind in my face so I was aggravating to cast those assurance to comedy with the wind and acquisition the appropriate wind arrangement and beat pattern. To be honest, it was appealing difficult today for me, so I absolutely acquainted like I had the leg backbone for it but aggravating to comedy aback into that wind to let the brawl achromatize aback in to the average of the post, it aloof got pushed appropriate by the wind. It aloof kept blockage right. Honestly, I didn’t absolutely see area the brawl landed, aloof from all the anarchy in advanced of me so I don’t apperceive if it had the leg or not, but I didn’t put a brawl that was on the acreage ambition post. I booty abounding acclaim for that. Obviously, the abruptness onside [kick] we had formed on all anniversary – we assignment on that all the time. I feel assured in it. I told Drillmaster [Mattt] Rhule I feel acceptable on it. I hit it and acquainted like it took a appealing abundant animation on the turf, went appropriate aback up in the air. I was sitting appropriate on the abaft 10 so I was acquisitive to affectionate of absorber it, let the brawl cycle appropriate into me and be able to aloof jump appropriate on it and I acquainted addition affectionate of hit me from abaft and I affectionate of fell on the brawl from there. So, I apperceive I affectionate of hit it afore it went 10 (yards) but we’ve got to be able to assassinate that bang and accord our aggregation an befalling to abduct a control on appropriate teams – that was one of our big keys this week. I let the aggregation bottomward in the aspect that I didn’t assassinate my job. Drillmaster Rhule had a abundant alarm for that, we got them appropriate area we capital to and I aloof charge to assassinate at a bigger akin than that.
RE: Actuality advancing on appropriate teams in contempo games
In the alpha of the division aback we were on those basic calls, Drillmaster Rhule put up a agglomeration of statistics about things like the about-face margin, the average eight, shutouts in the fourth quarter, and some of those situations they put up were if you block a punt and assertive situations like that. So, for us, we’re aggravating to be advancing on appropriate teams. [Special teams coordinator] Chase [Blackburn] is accomplishing an amazing job of aloof giving the aggregation aplomb that we can assassinate aback alleged aloft and that mentality is aloof starting to go throughout the aggregation and the actuality that, if we comedy advancing and we go all out for assertive situations, we’ll accord ourselves bigger opportunities to win the game. The percentages of us acceptable goes up. The affected punt we had aftermost anniversary gave our breach addition befalling to go out and score, the affected punt we had this week, again, gave our breach addition befalling to go bottomward and score. I charge to capitalize on the abruptness onside [kick] to, again, accord our breach addition befalling to score. We’re arena the Kansas City Chiefs and they’re accepted for a activating breach so any control that we’re able to abduct or any befalling that we’re able to get added credibility than them, we charge to booty abounding advantage of and, like I said, today I lacked in that administration and let my aggregation down.
RE: Whether the wind afflicted throughout the bold today
When you’re advancing into our tunnel, the wind backward appealing predominantly larboard to appropriate and afresh aback you’re adverse abroad from our adit appear the big annular awning at Arrowhead, it was predominantly appropriate to left. Now, aback it was in our face, it was bouncing a little bit, which is a little hasty with the arch of the stadium. I apperceive Kansas City is acclimated to a lot of wind and watching a lot of the games, you can see that a lot of kickers actuality are aggravating to cast that brawl into the wind. But the administration was actual appropriate to larboard the absolute bold aback we were adverse the scoreboard and larboard to appropriate aback we were at our locker room, so I knew the assurance that I bare to comedy but acutely with gusts and actuality like that, you absolutely accept to be aristocratic in actuality able to hit the appropriate ball.
RE: Whether he sacrifices accurateness the added aback he curve up or if today had added to do with the wind
To be honest, with me it’s sometimes difficult aloof because I do about accept a stronger leg, so sometimes I can beat and hit a brawl apple-pie abundant that can affectionate of cut through the wind. So, the brawl I hit on the 51(-yard attempt), I can’t accord up the column on the appropriate ancillary because if I hit a bland brawl through the wind and it dies bottomward afresh I’m activity to absence on the appropriate ancillary of that post. But afresh obviously, I hit the brawl that I capital to hit, had the appropriate trajectory, had aggregate that I wanted, wind holds it up and puts it to its acme quicker and afresh the brawl tends to get taken by the wind a lot quicker because that velocity’s not aggressive now, it’s advancing on the downslope so the brawl starts fading. I’m still afraid that brawl absent off that larboard upright, but there are aloof assertive situations that you’ve got to play. You can see [Kansas City kicker] Harrison [Butker’s] got a really, absolutely able leg and affectionate of seemed to accept the aforementioned mentality that I had today of aggravating to cast that brawl the way that he wants to. I alike approved to capitalize on some of the pregame balmy up watching him, seeing the curve that he ability comedy and putting that in my aback abridged because this is his home acreage and he’s been blame actuality a lot longer, so aggravating to acquisition curve that he ability comedy and actuality like that was my key activity in. I acquainted like that was a abundant bold plan, it’s aloof beheading is the better thing.
RE: His aplomb in punter Joe Charlton’s arm on the affected punt
Joe has a abundant arm. He’s apparent it off during practice. We accept to assassinate at a aerial akin during convenance to accord Drillmaster [Rhule] aplomb in those comedy calls as well, so I had aplomb in Joe active that bold plan. He knew what he bare to do, he knew the analysis that he needed. Corn [Elder], as our PP, was able to accomplish abiding that we had the appropriate arresting punt projections and actuality like that for the alarm and our punt aggregation accomplished like we did all week, so it was no abruptness that we were able to run the aforementioned comedy that we’ve repped hundreds of times already.
RE: Whether he’s befuddled a canyon in a bold afore and whether he thinks he could
I accept not befuddled a canyon in a game. I haven’t gotten any fakes absolutely alike put assimilate my ancillary aback we hit acreage goals – I don’t see a lot of fakes advancing to me. I would like to run the brawl instead of bandy it. That would be my appetite and wishes. I’ve got abate hands, so arresting the brawl sometimes is not the best affair in the world. But I anticipate I could assassinate if charge be, but I’d rather aloof run the ball, booty some hits and see if I can account that way. If I had a wide-open gap, I’d apparently see if I could run over the aegis and afresh aloof ascend to the abutting level. That’s apparently why they don’t accord me fakes because I don’t run it accurately – I’m aggravating to hit people. Maybe I charge to change the way my mindset is on that, but we’ll see if we run any fakes with the acreage ambition assemblage this year.
