On the Cleveland loss: "We had our chances, and we misfired in crucial situations, particularly in short-yardage situations on offense. And on defense we needed one stop, something at the end, and we couldn't get it done."
On the fourth-and-1 play in overtime: "If you get in and you need this much (showing about 18 inches with his hands), there is a natural tendency for any signal caller to say 'shoot, I think we can get this, pound it.' And I think you get it most of the time, and we didn't get it... It's pretty tough to call a pass in that situation, but I've done that too, though, so believe me, at the time that I had to make that decision in the game, I really do think about all of those things."
On the offensive line: "Most of the time, we had some technical things that are based on inexperience. The good offensive lines in the league, and the good offensive linemen in the league, it takes a little bit of time to really feel like you know how to play the position. ... If we could analyze it and say 'this is the thing' but we can't do that, because it's a play here, a player there, we just kind of manage to hit them all. I think offensively last night we played a pretty good game. I was disappointed we couldn't convert the short-yardage."
Never miss a local story.
On Marcus Pollard and Deion Branch: "I think we have a chance to have both those guys back, both (Marcus) Pollard and Deion (Branch)."
On Shaun Alexander: "He's pretty sore today, his leg was wrapped pretty good.... but he'll be ok. Now I don't think he'll be able to practice too much this week."
On Nate Burleson's punt return: "He came off the field, I was so happy, I went up to him and I whispered and I said, 'Hey, normally speaking I don't want you to return it from the 5, but nice going.'
So it was a no-no, yes-yes thing. Unbelievable."
