"It was a pretty good practice," Rodriguez said. "I thought we would have a little bounce in our step and a little spirited. We have been ending every Tuesday with a kind of five minute rookie period and I am glad we are doing it."
"Certainly what could go wrong went wrong and obviously we were playing poorly and they were playing well," he said. "Next thing you turn around, you're down 21, 28 nothing and you barely got out of the locker room.
"I was embarrassed and I believe every one of us was embarrassed. Not necessarily because we got beat, but that we played so poorly."
"I think it is probably pretty similar honestly," he said. "He has not had as much space as he had at times. I think some of it is how teams are preparing for him.
"He has good speed. He sometimes gets teased when he gets chased down a little bit, but he is as good as anybody I have ever had in between the tackles of creating space or making people miss in a short window or a short area."
"They are still running it well," Rodriguez said. "They are younger up front, which I guess is the biggest difference. I don't know what Hundley's yards are now compared to this time last year, but I think he has taken off on a lot of big runs for them too."
"This is an easy one," he said. "If I have to worry about motivating and getting them jacked up for this one then I got the wrong group. I bet I don't have to say anything all week and they will be ready to go on Saturday night."
"Instead of thinking about Saturday night now, I want them to think about tomorrow's practice and then after they go through that think about Thursday's practice," he said. "I really try to narrow the focus so they don't think ahead to Saturday night until we get to Friday."
