Hope: The thing I heard Deshea say earlier, "There's no such thing as an ugly win unless you're in a boxing match," or something. We didn't play well from the looks of it. I'm pretty sure we could have done a lot of things better, but it just gives us an opportunity to show how resilient this team is.
GVB: What can you say about the play of the special teams? Two weeks in a row they've come up big in some instances.
Hope: Oh yeah. The punt return teams and coverage teams are doing excellent, as well as the kick return teams. They create field position for us each and every week and that's a phase of the game we cannot lose. We have to win the field position game each and every week.
GVB: Defensively, you guys came after Ramsey pretty good, I thought-made him think a little bit, made him throw faster than he wanted to.
Hope: We played pretty well on defense. We continued to eliminate the big play like we've done pretty much all season long. That's what we continue to live for.
GVB: Just continue to keep it going, stack one on top of the other, right?
Hope: Yeah, one at a time.
GVB: Thanks a lot, Chris.
