It was tough. I tried to be positive and not come down on them for making mistakes. We got comfortable and the wins started coming. From there I tried to stress that this could be a special season if we stayed hungry.
Just getting here is a tribute to our guys' hard work. We had to change our mindset this year. We had to go from a losing team to a winning team. Now, they know what winning feels like. We have nothing to hang our heads about.
We didn't play with the same fire and intensity that got us here. We got here with a lot of work and playing hard every play. We took some plays off in the second quarter. We picked it up in the second half, but by then, it was too late.
