Wednesday is quarterback Derek Anderson’s day to speak to the media, and obviously it was his first time doing so since the high-intensity press conference he gave Monday night. So he climbed up on the riser to speak to everyone and said, “OK, let’s try this in a manner that doesn’t end up on YouTube.”
It seemed like the right level of levity given the situation and the way his presser ended Monday, when he abruptly walked out.
“I’d like to apologize for my actions after the game,” Anderson said. “There is a more professional way I could have handled that. I wasn’t raised that way. My Mom and Dad didn’t raise me to act like that in times of adversity. Obviously I was very frustrated by what had happened during the game, and I let the emotions get the best of me.”
Anderson followed up by saying “From what did happen, I am moving forward from that, and I am trying to put that in the past and focus on what we have this week, which is a big game for our team at home.”
I will have more later in a homepage story (and here it is).
