When asked, “how stunned he is to be 0-13″? Marinelli responds by saying:
I am, especially after the preseason we had and how fast we played. I am. It is surprising to me. But you deal with it and move on and try to get better.
He was also asked, “how he rectifies his belief in himself and the team with the reality of the performance and the record”? Marinelli responds to this by saying:
It’s just me. It’s what I believe. I go right back to work. I don’t like some of the things that I see, but I know they’re correctable, and there’s some things I do like, and I keep working on those things
It’s the invisible, I guess. No, that’s what I’m saying. I believe in the invisible. I do. I think you go out and you have faith in what you do. If you don’t have it, you’re nothing. You’re not a man. You come out like that and you give up, I have no respect for you. I’m not done, OK? If you just say, ‘I give up. We’re no good. We can’t do this. Oh, woe is me,’ and look for pity, that’s disgraceful to me. I look for every positive I can, every positive I can find on this football team, to get them better. Now, I can dwell on the negative all day, but that’s what everybody else does for me. So I prefer to go out and see what I can do to make it better, what I can do to improve, improve myself and my staff.
