Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr says Detroit game won’t shatter his resolve
“You know what I’ve been through to get here? Just from childhood until now, I’ve been through so much; so many obstacles, struggles, things thrown at me, people saying I couldn’t do this, couldn’t do that,” Carr said.
“I just get up each and every day, put my shoes on and go to work. I knew I had a big challenge yesterday, and I was ready for it.”
Carr said that he didn’t view a loss as a way to grieve but an opportunity to look back at what went wrong and analyse the mistakes. Every defeat was an opening to strengthen and prepare better for the future.
“At the end of the day, I stood in there and fought, and that’s all you can ask for,” he said. “I’m going to get better as time goes on. We’re going to get better as a unit,” he said. But it definitely hasn’t shaken my confidence. It might have boosted it. It might sound crazy, but I learn from games like that. It’s time to move on and go on again.”
Carr didn’t play bad in the game. It was just that the Detroit Lions were well prepared than they were. He had two pass breakups and eight tackles. He is at number four for the Coboys lead tackler. He has a fumble recovery and two interceptions under his belt as well.
When Carr was asked if things could have gone different for the Cowboys, he said that it all came down to who is more alert on the field and who makes the better play.
“Just situational football,” Carr said. “That’s what it comes down to – an awareness of who’s hot, who’s the go-to guy and just different things you have to fight back and find a way to make a play on them, or find a way to get them covered up.”
