Jimbo says FSU needs to add focus and killer instinct

A month ago, FSU thumped Miami (FL) 45-17. Kirk Herbstreit said, “I don’t know if there’s a team in the country that’s playing as well as Florida State.”

Since then, Jimbo Fisher’s team is 1-2 including a sloppy win over Boston College. The ‘Noles had chances to win in the fourth quarter against NC State and last week against UNC, but fell short in both games.

Yesterday, Fisher said his team lacks focus and a killer instinct. 

"It's focus … you have learn to focus … it's just a couple of issues and focus … we didn't focus … we've got to learn to focus the whole time … when you focus you have attention to detail."

"This team has to learn to develop a killer instinct," Fisher said. "It has to learn to take its own identity and not let people get off the ground when they get them down. And not hope to win, but understand how to win."

"And there's nobody on this football team that has [done that]."

FSU (6-3) returns to action on Saturday night against Clemson.
