One more piece before we put Friday’s game to bed. This time, from Rex’s perspective.

He reminded us that the sacks, although sometimes on the offensive line, are not always. He reminded us that the quarterback has to get the ball out quickly as well. Here is what he had to say on the subject:

The offensive line takes all the blame, of course, when your quarterback gets hit. On some of those, the ball has to come out. It’s really not all on the offensive line on a couple of those. Now there were also a couple where maybe it could have been, guys getting beat physically. You can handle a guy getting beat physically a heck of a lot more you can mentally. There was one sack against [Greg] McElroy where, shoot, I think everybody in the ballpark knew the guy was coming. He looked like that [Usain] Bolt guy ready to run a 100 [meters]. I think he’s coming and for some reason we missed it. That was unfortunate on the fumble. We have to do a better job on that.
