6:26 pm
>> the focus, just unhealthy, completely disfunctional. >> and what made it that way? >> different people on different wave lengths, not a clear goal, the entire building, very separated, and even in that i think that all trickled into the locker room. it was a very separated locker room, offense, defense, special teams. not everybody put in the team first. i think all those things that come with disfunction that are the opposite of what healthy teams have. >> ouch. take an aim at the 49ers. giorgio tavecchio was named the -- made all 4 of his field goals sundays including a pair of 50-yarders. not bad for someone who has been cut 7 times since 2012. >> i feel very fort ate being called back. whether it's because i have been looking or because i'm left footed i don't know.
