Happy New Year.
A new coaching staff is on the way, the misery of the 2013 season is in the rearview and it's time for a fresh start.
I'm striving to crank out 1,000 pushups a day. I'm pretty confident in my abilities to do so, but let's get on to what the players are hoping to improve upon in the new year.
"I really need to work on my tackling," Keo said. "I feel like I missed too many tackles out there this year. Other than that, just keep progressing. I feel like I’ve made solid strides each year and I just want to continue to do that and become one of the best players in the league.”
"I'm going to watch myself," Crick said. "Every rep I took this year, of every game. See what I did good. See what I did bad."
On special teams, undrafted rookie
Tuggle said his "ultimate goal" is to be a starter on defense, and like Crick, he plans to improve by checking out what he did and didn't do well.
"I'm going to hit the film real heavy this offseason," Tuggle said. "I'll really critique myself all the way back from my preseason film where I played a lot more defensive snaps and just see what I need to do to make myself a starter in this league."
"It’s always technique or just watching a little more film on guys and prepping," Jones said on Monday. "You learn each year a little more and a little more form other guys. It’s just a process for an offensive linemen.”
