Q: Where you surprised by the level of collapse of play
compared to the last two weeks?
Mike: "Yeah. As a matter of fact I'm angry about it. I believe that we are a better football team than we showed today."
Q: The deep ball, you knew that would be a problem or concern?
Mike: "Yeah, you play this team, this is what they like to do."
Q: Mike, you like to play offense to control the tempo of
the game, it didn't seem like the offense was clicking today at all.
Mike: "No, we were poor on offense today. It was a bad game offensively. I don't think we passed protected very well, we made penalties, we dropped passes, we weren't sharp, and quite frankly I don't have an answer for you as to why that happened. There was no way that I expect to be that way. You have to give credit to Minnesota. On one hand, you know, I believe we are better than that, and it showed today. I just believe that and we didn't play a very good game."
Q: How was Minnesota preparing for this game with the deep threats and slowing them down?
Mike: "I don't know. That is the question for the ages. For one, Randy Moss is a spectacular athlete. Then the other young man caught one too. It's discouraging."
Q: What is suppose to happen there. Is the safety suppose to get over there or is it zone coverage?
Mike: "I don't know what the coverages were. I will better be able to answer that tomorrow. It appears that he didn't have help on the coverage. That's the way it appeared to me on the sideline."
Q: Has this been as angry as you have ever been?
Mike: "I think we are a better football team this year than we have been. I think we have played pretty good lately. Today we stunk."
Q: Is Bobby Ingram going to be ok?
Mike: "Yes, he will be ok. He just got his bell rung. Bobby came to play. If you are looking for positives, he got the magnitude of the game, he was ready to play. It was unfortunate he got hurt."
