Marques Harris: Honestly, I think we started out a little slow. Our defense was playing pretty well and the offense was battling a field-position game, so they weren't obviously clicking. We came in at halftime and the coaches told us we needed to keep fighting and continue doing our job. We were able to go out there in the second half and turn things around. Defensively, we made plays. Offensively, we were able to put some points on the board so we could grab the win.
JC: Was there anything specific Coach Norv Turner or any of the other coaches said during halftime that pushed the team to change the pace of the game?

JC: How are the injuries affecting the team as whole and do they alter how you approach each game?
MH: We know injuries are part of the game. Injuries are going to happen and they happen every year to every team. Of course, it's great to go through a season with no injuries but nine out of 10 times, that's not going to happen.
JC: Is there such a thing as a "healthy" NFL player?
MH: No, in all honesty, there really isn't such a thing as a "healthy" NFL player. It's a matter of how much we play while dealing with the certain pains and not allowing it to compromise our performance on the field. The strength of our team is its depth. When a guy goes down, we have a reliable and dependable backup to step in.
Offensively, for example, with LaDainian Tomlinson's toe injury, Darren Sproles comes in and plays a great game. Defensively, if a guy goes down, a player is able to come in, pick up the slack and get the job done. We don't have guys that just come in to fill a role and do their job. We have guys that step in and make an impact by actually making big plays that contribute to the team. So, the depth on our roster has been our biggest strength.
