"I don't take this [speculation] personally," he said. "My concerns are always for our team and our coaches. I really believe in this group we have and I really believe this is the foundation of something that could be really good. Until we start winning football games, that's what shows it.
"Some of the other stuff about me personally -- what more can they say about me, right? I think that's where the thick skin part comes in."
