FLOWERY BRANCH — After the morning session on Wednesday, Falcons running back Michael Turner spoke with NFL Network’s Solomon Wilcots for an interview that aired on NFL Total Access on NFL Network.
Here is a video link and transcript of the interview:
On how he has become such a good player over a consistent period of time since joining the Falcons: “That’s the key: being consistent. Doing all of the little things right every week and just being out there for my team. Just go out there and try to prove that I’m one of the best in the league.”
On what to expect from the Falcons’ offense under new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter: “I’m not going to show our hand right now, but Dirk has a lot of toys to play with out there. He’s going to make sure everybody gets their touches. Mike [Mularkey] had the same guys but it’s sometimes good to have a new voice leading the group of guys. Hopefully that pays off well for us.”
On how the team turns around their recent lack of success in the postseason: “Just play with a little bit more determination, play smarter football. Just going out there knowing that in the playoffs, every play matters and there are big repercussions if you don’t do things right. We’ve been knocking in the door for awhile now and it’s time for us to take that next step.”
