XL Quotes

"We're really not surprised by what's going on right now. It's one at a time." -- Colts RB Edgerrin James

"They shut you out, moving back and forth, and they don't come right at you. It is a change up from most other teams." -- Titans DT Rien Long on the Colts offensive line

"I'm very proud of our team, obviously, coming back and playing like that – a very complete game, a complete win, six days after a very emotional, hard-fought game." -- Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy

"I feel like we let McNair down so bad down there. He makes three or four good throws in a row, all of them dropped in the end zone." -- Titans WR Drew Bennett

"That ball was in the air and I couldn't believe that it was falling right in my hands. I just tried to make sure I caught it, run hard, and get to the end zone." -- Colts DT Larry Tripplett 

"If there's a team ahead of them that can beat them, I'll be surprised." -- Titans OT Brad Hopkins.

"Even though on this touchdown, I was the second read, before the play started, we looked at each other. I told him I was going to look early, because the middle seemed wide open. He made sure I did. It all worked out." -- Colts TE Bryan Fletcher

"What some suggested was a trap game instead was just another speed bump on the way to a 12-0 record and the ongoing pursuit of NFL perfection." -- Sportswriter David Climer, The Tennessean

"Really, the only negative was our kick-off coverage. We were kind of feast or famine." -- Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy

"He was on our practice squad and that's where we first really noticed him. He was playing Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez and some people that really get a lot of balls in the offense and we saw that he could do a lot of things and catch the football. (TE Coach) Ricky Thomas has worked with him well in the off-season with his blocking. He has become a very tenacious guy." -- Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy on Bryan Fletcher 

"We thought that if we had played a perfect game, we could have won. But, we didn't do that." -- Titans QB Steve McNair
