Transcript: Panthers Head Coach Press Conference

What were the keys to the team’s victory this week?

The success of our team today can be attributed to the strong performance of our passing game, which played a crucial role in securing the victory. Our talented receivers put on an impressive display of athleticism, skill, and teamwork, making some spectacular plays and outmaneuvering the 49ers' defense at every turn. It was truly a joy to watch them perform at such a high level.

I couldn't help but notice how well Marvin Harrison Jr. played today, given the 49ers' reported interest in him before the draft. It was almost as if he had something to prove, and he certainly did just that. It's always fun to see a player shine against a team that he was almost a part of, and Marvin did just that today.

Overall, I am extremely proud of how our passing game performed today. It was a true team effort, with everyone contributing to our success. Our receivers showed that they can go toe-to-toe with any defense in the league and come out on top, and that gives me a lot of confidence for the rest of the season.

Can you summarize what it was like playing against the Lions last week?

Our game against the Lions last week was quite interesting. They were quite turnover prone, which played in our favor. Jamison Williams is a pretty fast receiver, and it's understandable that they like to get the ball in his hands. However, we were prepared for the fly routes, and thankfully our corners can run under the ball as well, so we were able to prevent some big plays.

We had an impressive 39 rushing attempts, with Anthony Richardson having a great game running as a quarterback. Also, I couldn't help but notice how much Jeremy Tate Jr. reminded me of a former great Detroit WR, which was quite impressive to see.

Jaycee stepped up and made two interceptions, which was a key factor in our win. On the other hand, the Lions' QB, Dak Prescott, threw 4 interceptions, which gave us a huge advantage. Overall, it was a solid game for us and we were able to capitalize on the Lions' mistakes.

Can you describe kind of the energy or the mood and the vibe in the building now coming in the home stretch?

We've been riding a 4 game win-streak, but we're not getting too ahead of ourselves. We know that our recent schedule has been a bit too easy, so we're trying to stay grounded and keep working hard. The loss against Atlanta after our bye week was a tough pill to swallow, but it gave us the motivation to dig deep and see what we're really capable of.

Our upcoming game against a wildcard team is going to be a huge test for us. We see it as a benchmark game to measure our progress and identify areas where we need to improve. We're confident that with our key players back next season, we'll be even better.

Someone mentioned to me earlier in the week about how far we've come from being ranked as the second-worst team in the league this season and we had a good laugh. It's funny how a little winning streak can give those experts a reality check and make them question their own credibility. We're glad those experts had the guts to put their opinions out there because we love proving them wrong. It's time for those experts to wake up and smell the coffee because we've been proving them wrong for weeks now.

What are your thoughts about the 49ers just in general as a team?

The 49ers are a tall order to deal with. I mean, have you seen these guys? They've got some tall players, like really tall players. I mean, their whole team looks like they were genetically modified to play basketball, not football. Their offensive line has an average height of 6'8. It's like they think football is a game of trying to form a human ladder to get over the goalpost or something. And the worst part is, it's not even working out for them. I guess they didn't get the memo that football is a sport where you have to run, not reach for the top shelf. It's like watching a bunch of giraffes try to play Twister. I'm just joking. I mean, I'm not saying that being tall is a bad thing, but when your whole team looks like the starting lineup for a WNBA team, maybe it's time for a reality check. But seriously, I think the 49ers need to start looking for players who can actually move their feet, not just reach the sky.
