“You have a lead like that at home, there’s no way you should lose that game,” John Madden told the KCBS radio morning crew. “Turnovers and penalties will probably do it every time. When you have that lead at home and you have a pretty good defense and a pretty good running game, you have to be able to control that game.”
“You would like to say ‘well, let’s get back to football, it’s a game tonight,'” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. “It’s hard to say that, even for me. It’s hard to say, ‘okay, let’s just put all that behind us.’ (This issue) is one of the things you can’t just put behind you.”
“You really have to be special to do that,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. “You have to be the best on defense and the best on offense.”
