He also addresses the loss to Green Bay, what is happening with the team since its big win over Seattle, the pass defense and his comfort level with the backup quarterbacks.
In part two of the Childress audio, he discusses Troy Williamson and Bethel Johnson's roles, having Darrell Bevell call some plays, his strategy at the end of the first half, using Jeff Dugan in Richardson's role, staying with the offensive linemen, and Bryant McKinnie's performance.
