"To the Bills credit, I think they did a great job and we have a lot of work to do. I thought we were sloppy particularly on offense, the special teams, clearly; field position and how Buffalo handled their special teams against us, was I think, the big story of the game. We'll get better. We didn't play very well today I think, but we'll get better. We've got to get back home, roll up our sleeves and get going."
On Nate Burleson (injury):
"We'll know more tomorrow. He hurt his knee. It was a little bit of an aggravation from an old injury."
On Matt Hasselbeck – Out of Sync?
"I'll have to look at the film first. I think there was a combination – we were playing with a lot of young people. It might take us a while to look as smooth as I would like, but we kind of know that. Unfortunately, you go against a good team, and I believe Buffalo has a good team, it's exaggerated a little bit. Clearly our inexperience in certain areas showed. But we'll get better."
Never miss a local story.
Couldn't Handle the Pressure from Bills Defense:
"It didn't seem like it. Again, I have to see the film. According to the coaches during the game, they weren't doing things that we hadn't really prepared for. It was just that they were doing it pretty well and I think we got a little jumpy. If the defense gets you rocking back on your heels a little bit, it's pretty hard to do most anything. I've got to wait and see the film, but that's my feeling right now."
How did Ryan Denney go uncovered on Fake FG:
"Unless they slipped him in from the sideline, but that's against the rules. That did happen to me once years ago against the Bears, and they changed the rule. We talked about – clearly it's someone who is not particularly concentrating on that particular play at that particular time. Because Denney is not a little guy, he's a big guy, so it's not like we shouldn't have seen him. I really don't know how they did it, but it worked nicely for them. It's embarrassing to us when a play like that works, but give them credit. They did a nice job with it."
On inexperience at WR:
"I think against this particular team, you have to be able to pass the ball to open up the run. They'll get 8 or 9 guys up in there. When I thought we found a little something and got going a little bit in the second half, then Mo (Maurice Morris) got hurt, we couldn't get over the hump. We'd get a penalty and we just couldn't get over the hump."
"I think it's one of those games that we're going to learn from, a painful lesson, learn from it and then we'll be better next week."
On Troubles in the Red Zone:
"We worked so hard on the red zone and that's discouraging just a little bit. Temporarily though…we'll make the corrections. It was that type of game for us. We were not very sharp offensively."
On Defending Roscoe Parrish:
"I think he has great vision. Any guy who is a really good punt returner has great confidence given to him by his teammates. I experienced that when we had Desmond Howard in Green Bay. You really believe every time the other team is going to punt to you, something good is going to happen, and that's kind of a contagious feeling. You couple that with an exceptionally talented kid doing it, you really have something. We missed some tackles I think, but gives the Bills credit – they did a great job today."
A Lesson Learned:
"What I'd like to do is learn from this game. Write it off a little bit, but learn from it, study it. For our young guys in particular, maybe in the long run, it'll be the best thing that could have happened to us, as strange as that sounds. Maybe we thought we were pretty good and we thought we could just go out there and play, but it takes a lot more than that to win in this league. So we'll see how the players react."
