On QB Tim Couch
"He didn't play very well, that's obvious. Part of it is he didn't practice a whole lot this week. He said his arm felt well enough to go, so I put him in there. I question whether that was the right decision. It wasn't a good day for him or for us."
On the first-team defense:
"I thought we did a nice job with the run. But we had two offside penalties that hurt us on the one drive. We can't line up on their side of the line of scrimmage."
On the game's standouts:
"I thought Ahman Green was himself. I think (Darren) Sharper played well. Al Harris played well. Ahmad Carroll, except for the penalty, I thought he did a good job for us. The young dfenseive lineman I thought jumped on - Cullen Jenkins. James Lee made a couple plays and missed aplay; he was pretty active, which I was excited about. Kenny Peterson knocked down a ball and he was pretty active. Those defensive linemen impressed me a little bit. Nick Barnett, when he was in there, I thought he played extremely well."
