We have to hold each other accountable. We have to get better in the area of pre-snap penalties. There’s no secret to that. It’s a whole unit thing.

    “The sequence right now is if the ones (the first team) jump offside or have a pre-snap penalty, the twos will go in. If the twos jump offside or have a pre-snap penalty, the threes go in. If the threes go in, the ones will go back.”

    The pressure is really on the third-team Garrett said.
