LDN: You have got to be happy

practically in the first half, both offensively and defensively. In
the second half we played well defensively. We gave up a little
yardage, but we buckled down when we had to. We picked up a couple
key first downs late in the game and put it on ice. Iím real proud
of their efforts. This team is off to a 2 and 0 start, and we just
have to work on getting better.

shut somebody out, you have to be happy with their efforts. We bent
in a couple of cases but havenít broken too much. Itís the sign of a
good team. I think they will keep learning and getting stronger as
they gain a little success and a little confidence.

on working on Jacksonville tomorrow.
LDN: You have to be happy with
the support that you are getting from the fans this year.
Oaks: If you are having some success, they will come out and
support you, and Lincoln is no different than anybody else. If we
put a good product out on the field, they are definitely going to
support us, and I have been grateful for the support of the
