On how he felt after the game:

Not great. I felt like we should have closed that one out and it slipped out of our hands. A loss hurts, any loss hurts. We have to move on from this game, prepare hard this week and get ready for our next opponent.

On if they matched up with Stanford:

Season to season, you don’t really look at the past, you try and prepare for the team you’re playing that year and look at film from opponents they’ve played.  You focus on what you need to do to get the win. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. We prepared hard this week, and as an offensive unit, we did some things, but we’ll go in and see things we could have done more of.

On the running game struggles:

Honestly, I’m not sure. I know as a tight end, there are a lot of things I could do better to help the run game and those are things we need to look at when we look at the film tomorrow.

On being comfortable with Josh Rosen:

I’ve always felt comfortable with Josh, he’s a great quarterback.  I run my routes, make sure I get to the right depth, be a big body and target for him.  I feel that helped our offense a lot and hopefully it will continue through the season.
