A chat with LT Craig Thomas
Q)Why did it take so long to pull away?
Tomlinson: Well, they played us tough all game. We knew it was going to be tough playing at their place. That’s a good defense and they battled. (They have) good pass rushers, but our offensive line controlled the game today, even though it took until the fourth quarter for us to impose our will but eventually we did that.
Q)Do you guys eventually wear teams down?
Tomlinson: Yeah, it’s been the formula, the way we win games. Of course, you know our style; ground and pound, make completions and play good defense. Today you saw us doing exactly that. That’s our recipe. That’s how we win games. Everybody knows it. We know it and as long as we continue to do that we should be fine.
Q)Do you feel the team is catching fire right now?
Tomlinson: Yeah, absolutely. We have always prided ourselves on playing our best football in December going into January. That’s how this team was built and I think we’re starting to do that and our schedule kind of sets up for us to do that, to make a run at the playoffs. We just have to stay focused and take it one game at a time and hopefully we do that.
