On the defense:
"... part of it is our linebackers have to fill the hole running downhill. I have to see the film to see if our linebackers were having a difficult time on their track to the ball or if Central did a good job holding the line of scrimmage."
On the difficulties with the red zone offense:
"I would be much more concerned if they were stopping us, but we were dropping passes that were catchable passes. That just shows me that we need to throw the ball to different players. We have the depth at the receiver position that we can do that."
On Steve Breaston:
"Of all our young guys who saw action for the first time, I think Steve Breaston impressed me the most. For a guy going back to catch a punt for the first time and to have the confidence for him to perform the way he did really impresses me. The entire return team did a great job in setting us up with good starting field position."
