I loved that. He always seems to make things make sense. He always has a way of explaining things, and it relates to the vibe that's going on in the locker room. And some of the guys, I know (fellow tight end) Dan (Graham) -- I thought he was going to start fighting right then. I had to tell him, 'I know you're getting fired up relax.'
If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything, really. There were times when we really got along and I learned a lot of things from him but there were a lot of times when he's in his own world where he thinks he knows what's best and he doesn't know what's best, really. It just wasn't fun to do and it wasn't a fun record to make. The music turned out rad. It's just when you're making a record, especially when you're working on vocals, I've only worked with a couple of producers and most of the records I've done with Terry Date . The reason we chose Ezrin is because we wanted to do something different, but I learned that different isn't always good.
We simply couldn't move the ball at all. We didn't have a first down in the first half, and we only had one until the last couple of minutes. That's not going to get it done, and we have to find a way to get it done. You can make any excuses that you want, but what we did today was not acceptable. We didn't give ourselves a chance to be successful on either side of the ball.
