BEREA, OHIO — Greg Little repeatedly dropped the ball Sunday afternoon, and again after it when he ducked out of the locker room without speaking to the media.
But he set about correcting both of those mistakes on Monday. He faced the music and stated his determination to become an elite receiver like Cincinnati's A.J. Green.
"It was kind of like when basketball players have a bad day shooting free throws," he said. "Sometimes you can't throw it into the ocean. Sometimes you just can't ever hang onto it. It's definitely something I can learn and grow from. Obviously I was definitely upset at my performance, but I just took the time to cool off and come back and get better."
Little, who also caught his first career touchdown pass, admitted he bolted the locker room while most reporters were listening to coach Pat Shurmur's press conference.
"I got dressed and I figured everybody would come up to me at once, but nobody really showed up so I kinda left a little earlier than I usually do, that's correct," he said.
