Coach Joe Gibbs: "I am always hesitant about one play. There are always so many plays in the football game that can make the difference. I never put it on somebody or one play because there are a lot of plays. Obviously that is a momentum thing and all of that but for me I never single out one play."
Gibbs: "The most productive part of what we were doing was our
no-huddle. There were a number of reasons for it, the snap count, Todd
handled it very well and I felt it was the best way to move the ball so
we stayed with it."
QB Todd Collins, "That was a missed opportunity there. You have to
convert those into points in the playoffs."
Collins: "I didn't really see it. I was on my back when the ball was
in the air. From what I heard [Moss] might have just lost it, he never
CB Marcus Trufant: "It was one of those plays, where the quarterback
is feeling the pressure. The guys up front are making him very
uncomfortable and the wide receiver, they had a double-move kind of
setup and he just lofted the ball up there. You're waiting on it and
waiting on it and it finally came down and I was able to get the
interception. Guys are blocking for me all over the place and it was
just a good play."
K Shaun Suisham: "You work all year and put a lot of time into this
and then to finish the year off with a miss from 30 yards is
disappointing. I was hoping we'd get another chance. It didn't work out
C Casey Rabach: "I'll be shocked if [Coach Joe Gibbs] is not back.
What coach did for us this year, the way we came together and brought
the team together, holding the team together, it was amazing. If he's
not back, it would be a sad day in Washington."
DE Phillip Daniels: "I think Sean is smiling now because we fought as
hard as we could. That's all you can ask for in this game. If things
don't go your way at least you can look in the mirror and say I gave it
my best shot.
Daniels: "Guys didn't realize how good a team we have and that's what
we have to try to get is home field advantage. That's what we have to
do next year. We let a lot of games slip away this year. This is the
second time we've come here and lost. We have to get home field and
make people come to us."
