Sorry for the delay in quotes, folks, it got very late very quickly last night.
Mike Holmgren is doing his usual 2:15 news conference, but he gave the players today off and they are scheduled to come back in tomorrow. With a nearly six-hour flight facing them after that gave, they probably did not get home and in bed until 4 or 5 in the morning.
Mike Holmgren Quotes
"The game reminded me a little of our game last week. The number of statistics was similar. They were 10 of 18 on third downs, last week was 10 of 17. We were 1 of 9, last week I don't know we were a little better on third down last week. We had the ball for 40 minutes and it was 40 minute-20 minute game. Very similar. We had a chance for a big play and it didn't work. They had a big play, like the long pass a week ago. So you get the outcome we had. Unfortunately right now that's the way it is. Our confidence on offense is not where it should be and now we have to keep it going somehow, some way and regain the confidence that we used to have."
(On the offense)
"I didn't think we executed very well early on. We did some things a little better in the second half. They have a good defensive team. They're good on defense and so the combination of our shortcomings and their good defensive play, you get kind of what you get."
(On QB Seneca Wallace)
"We didn't sustain things enough for him to get into a rhythm. We're just struggling right now on offense. It's just hard."
(On the impact of the fumble that was reviewed)
"We got the ball back on review. If they let the play go, we probably would have scored. CB Josh (Wilson) picked it up and was running. So it was a factor in the game."
(On LB Lofa Tatupu injury)
"Yeah, he got a concussion in the game and is still a little foggy."
