Where’s the read option?
"You know, we’ve got different plays for different teams," Garcon replied. "Teams are looking for the read option, so we have to do different things to balance it out. But when we do run it, we have to be effective on it, but we also have to run other plays that are effective, so we have different options, so teams can’t just rely on one thing. So we have to be prepared and we have to practice harder, just give it everything we’ve got throughout the week."

Shanahan addresses penalties, but not overly concerned
"You always want to be disciplined," Shanahan said. "A lot of times your team plays extremely hard, and you have some unnecessary penalties, and it’s more because of aggression, and you want to keep your poise. I think Baltimore led the league last year in penalties, or they were close, and they won the Super Bowl. But, they’re a very aggressive football team. But we’re going to work on that, to try to eliminate those mistakes. We talked about it after the game."
