Tom O'Brien Press Conference

"It certainly was a good day for us, and I'm very happy for our football team. Everybody contributed to what we wanted to get done. We couldn't have done this without a lot of effort on a lot of people's parts."

"To keep them under 250 yards rushing is a great day. We're not very pretty. We're getting to be a tough football team, and a team that is resilient and plays the way you should play the game."

"Well they certainly did a great job today. It's so hard to defend them. You put two guys on the pitch and the quarterback breaks of a big run. You put two guys on the quarterback and the pitch man breaks a long run. You can't prepare for everything."

"They went to that bunch formation, and we spent some time on it, but not in the passing game. They had backs coming out of the back field and it took us off guard a little bit."

"The good thing is, we went down and answered them. Our offense answered every time they had to today."

"They're believing that you just play the game. When something bad happens, you can't let it get you down. You just get back out there. You buckle on your chin strap and get back out here. They're starting to play football the way I like to see it played."

"A week ago on Thursday night and again today, and that's the Russell we're used to seeing. He's going to continue to get a lot better."

"We knew they had a new punter, as we do, and we planned to go after him and get a block. That was a big play in the game."
