08/25/14 - CB Justin Gilbert gave up two touchdown passes thrown by Rams third-string quarterback Austin Davis. Pettine was not happy.
"The NFL is a tough road now for a rookie corner," Pettine said. "The only silver lining is that he did have a night like that heading into the regular season, that he sees that playing corner in the NFL is very much a 'what have you done lately' business.
"You've got to be prepared and focused every time you step on the field. He needs to get some things cleaned up from a technique standpoint. I think there were a couple plays where he kind of got away from things that he had been doing well. He needs to step it up and know that every time he takes the field that he has to be 100 percent focused."
Gilbert is projected as the starting right cornerback for the season opener.
