On hanging tight for the first three quarters:
We came out and put it on the line. We did a good job, just have to work on finishing the game. We were in it, just didn't finish. The game is four quarters.
On buying into Coach Shannon's plan:
Coach Shannon expects nothing but greatness. We went out and put it on the line for him. We were a couple plays away.
On playing in such a big atmosphere:
It was a big atmosphere. When I first walked out, I said 'this is a big stadium'. It was a big playing stage. Coming into the game, we played a lot of games like that in high school. We blocked out the crowd tonight.
On how active you and the linebackers were:
The linebackers wanted to take charge of the defense so we went out and played well.
