"We've been better, but what we have to do is get ourselves ready to go these last three weeks and get back on track. We've fallen off the track a little bit, but we can get back up on there," he told hosts Bob Papa and Jerry Rice.
The Colts, who hold a 10-3 record and are one game from clinching the AFC South, have lost three of their last four games. But Dungy shared this perspective.
"Other teams have been through this. Some teams have been through it already, some teams are going through it right now," he said. "Cincinnati went through it, the team we're getting ready to play, they had two games back-to-back where they gave up over a thousand yards. And they got it fixed and they're playing excellent defense right now."
When asked if he is getting pressure from his assistants to make sweeping personnel changes or other types of changes, he replied, "There are a lot of traps that way you can fall into."
In this eight-minute audio, you'll hear Dungy talk about the combination of mental and physical errors that were made on Sunday against Jacksonville.
