(Opening statement…) "Good football team. Obviously we didn't have enough to compete with them (Seattle) today. I congratulate them and we move on.
(How was the team's effort…) "It's a challenge, you have to unbreak the challenge. You have to focus on the fact that you have to learn some things today, that you can go forward. It's the only way you can learn, otherwise there is no value in it."
(Is there anything that can make you feel good about this game, especially Troy (Smith)…) "Well, he got through the game. And orchestrated it. He did not have a lot of procedure calls, until the very loud play. So he obviously had command of the huddle and command of the line of scrimmage, that's a lot."
Never miss a local story.
(Is (Troy) Smith going to be the starter next week…) "I don't know. We don't have all the information yet. We'll see how Kyle is as he comes out of the week and what his status is. We have a lot of guys that we'll have to wait and see."
(On challenging the Mike Anderson play…) "We had nothing. We saw no view. Nothing as usual, coaches in the booth got nothing. It's worth a shot."
(How much was Troy Smith limited with the playbook…) "We try and match what Troy can do. Their (Seattle) a very multiple defense, so you have to be very careful on the road, it's very loud, you have to be careful either way. But we had an adequate size package for him to operate today. "
(What play made the difference in the game today…) "You always have to have ball security."
(Have you heard anything about Neuheisel this week…) "I wouldn't know."
