Sherman Sez

The mood was somber, to put it mildly, but a downcast Packers' coach Mike Sherman offered his take on Saturday's crushing playoff loss at Lambeau Field.<P>

On the loss: "I am very disappointed about the outcome of this football game and how little we did in any phase of the game. I expected us to play than we did today and we didn't. To say it is disappointing is as big an understatement as I could ever make." "I am not going to jump ship on a team that won 12 games for me and that won a division and every home game. We did a few things right this year in the regular season but we didn't do things right in the post-season. In Green Bay, you are measured by championships, not wins."

On failing to review the muffed/deflected punt reception: "I never saw a replay. I talked to an official on the field and he led me to believe that it wouldn't be reviewable ... I asked the official what happened he told me that we got overpowered, he got run into the kicker and it was what it was."

On the role of injuries: "I don't want to do that. Injuries are as much a part of the game as blocking and tackling. We just need to overcome injuries when they happen and we didn't do that. You have to be held accountable for winning and losing. We just didn't get it done."
