Benny Snell was happy to put the team on his back during the crucial fourth quarter game-winning drive. “Keep feeding me, keep feeding me,” he told himself.
When I asked him after the game what his favorite nickname was, he likes all of them, but ‘Benny and the Jets’ goes way back. “All of my lunch ladies in high school and college, they love calling me that.”
Eddie Gran discussed what went right on the game-clinching drive. He also discussed the “talking-to” he had with his quarterback after the bad interception.
Johnson reacted exactly how Gran wanted him to. “He was unbelievable. He looked me right square in the eyes and he said, ‘I know coach, you’re exactly right.'”
“I don’t think I’m ever really satisfied with how I play,” Stephen Johnson said after the game. “I’m my own biggest critic. I think I can do a lot better.”
