(On the game being closer than it should have been…) It doesn't really matter now. That is the good part. We wanted to go out and earn it and we definitely earned it today. Maybe made it a little tougher than we needed to but guys stepped up and that's the fun thing. Guys continue to step up. Different guys different games. Its fun. We are really starting to come together as a team. It is fun to watch.
(On if he will buy Rodgers-Cromartie a meal for his interception…) Probably not. He is still a rookie, he should still be buying us lunch I think. But what a great play there at the end to finish it. The fun thing is he is only going to get better. We have only seen signs of how good he can be in practice, in training camp and now we finally get to see him on the field a little bit. He is going to get better and better, it is fun to see that.
(On if he exorcised some demons here at Qwest…) I know I did. I have struggled in here before that is for sure. This was a huge win. Not only because we came out and played well but the significance of this win for us at this point in the season…a lot of things were riding on this game so it was huge. So it is a good start for us. But we still have a long long way to go but we took one step closer today.
(On if the win was more significant because it came at Qwest…) You know I don't know. I don't know if I really think about that stuff. To me its more just about doing it as opposed to where. You know with this team being as good as they have been over the years and us having as many problems as we have had it is nice to come in here and get a victory. I think the big thing for us is that we are starting to win some big games on the road and we are playing better on the road. I think that is the big thing for us is the next step that we needed to take. We did some good things at home last year but the next step we needed to take was to bring that intensity on the road and I think that we have done that three straight games now. Not all victories but we have brought that intensity and shown some signs of maturity and coming of age a little bit.
Never miss a local story.
(On if he saw Boldin against Tatupu…) Just kind of as the game progressed. It was more of a zone coverage. They went to what we call the Tampa 2 where they put the middle linebacker down deep middle and put the safeties out wide. And so they happened to rotate to Tampa 2 there and with the play fake Lofa (Tatupu) still has to respect that to a degree so we got the big shot down the middle. If I had seen it a little earlier, they had kind of rotated coverage as I turned my back to make a play fake so it wasn't early enough on that or we may have gotten a touchdown out of that. But obviously it was still a huge play for us.
