Ed Thompson: You guys have had some exciting games since your first NFL appearance in the Jacksonville game.
Freddy Keiaho: Yeah, the New York game was crazy.
ET: Have you been a part of one like that before?
FK: Yeah, but we were always losing and it's nice to be on the winning side of it.
ET: What was it like being on the sideline and watching Peyton Manning go out there for
that last drive?
FK: Being a part of this organization you just feel like you're going to win and I just felt like we were going to score. Terrence (Wilkins) did a good job returning the ball across the forty yard line. You just have that feeling that you're going to win and that's something I haven't experienced since high school.
ET: Was the Titans game much tighter than what you guys projected?
FK: This is the NFL, and there are no bad teams in the NFL. I mean they were 0-4 but they're playing against other good NFL teams. It was a lot tighter, but the media giving us nineteen points…that's unheard of; that's like Michigan playing Troy State or something like that.
ET: I was surprised by that too. I thought you guys would win, but I didn't think the spread would be that big.
FK: They had a good game plan for us and they didn't let out offense have a fast start.
They tried to get us to run the ball and we just had to execute on defense to hold them down.
ET: The special teams group has given up one big play in each of the last two games. The average fan might not understand where a breakdown is going to occur that allows a big play to break; what did you see that allowed teams to break a big play against you guys?
FK: It's just execution. We have a game plan going in and (Russ) Purnell is a great special teams coach.
It's just execution; we need to go out there and execute better on kick-offs every time. We've had some great
kickoff coverage, but we've had some lapses -- and those lapses have come at critical moments.
ET: When you say lapses, is it more staying in the lanes or wrapping up tackling or a combination?
FK: It's a combination of both. We just need to make a tackle when the tackle's available and we need to play our lanes a little better, but you can't single it out and say it's one thing over the other.
ET: What's been the biggest challenge for you since you've gotten out there in the regular season?
FK: I just need to play football. I need to get healthy, get one hundred percent and just play football.
ET: I know right after your knee injury you told me that you only have one speed and only one way to play the game…has that held true?
FK: Yeah I'm not trying to do anything different, I'm just trying to be the player I've always been.
ET: Is there anything else you'd like me to pass on to the fans at this point?
FK: Just that we're trying really hard on special teams and kick-off coverage.
And don't worry, we'll get it fixed.
