"Tough loss for our football team... the game was probably decided on third down. We couldn't get off the field and couldn't stay on the field."

"I thought the kids played hard, but we're in a journey. Some guys have got to grow up. We've got to play better football. We've got to coach better football."

"Because the clock was running with the sack. He ended up kicking a field goal from that length anyways."

"It's hard to tell because I think [Nate Irving] has an impact in the defense feels his leadership when he's out there... he's probably gone again for a while."

"I thought we played pretty good. We hung in there, we fought... we just couldn't get off the field."

"We're playing 80 plays on defense and only 45 on offense."

"It's as a team, we've got to get better. It's a journey, we're on a journey. We've got a lot of young kids trying to learn and play hard."

"I think [Russell Wilson] has done well... he's on as much a journey as any of us right now."

"The future is Maryland now. That's what the future is. We got week-to-week, we'll find out what the injury report is, and next Tuesday we'll be on the field trying to prepare to win a football game."

"There's a lot of good this football team can do... we can get this thing going and headed in the right direction."
