After the game, Turner said George would start Sunday’s game at Dallas. Turner was fired the next day, but Robiskie reaffirmed George as the starter — at least for the Cowboys game.

“I took a beating. We had a hard time with blitz adjustments,” Johnson said. “I’ve done some good things here. My record speaks for it, the numbers speak for it. I’ve got a long career still in front of me. I’m not going to let one play or one game bring me down.”
Johnson’s career record as a starter is 31-18. George’s is 46-74. Johnson said he would not mind working with Turner again.
“I wouldn’t have a problem strapping it up with him again at all under different circumstances,” Johnson said. “Norv’s a tremendous coach. He’s going to go one way, and I’m going to go another way, and you never know where that road leads in the end.”
