"it stinks. it's not very fun, but we have work to do. it's obvious. we have work to do and we are gonna build this football team back. it might not happen tonight, but we are gonna keep laying bricks. we got a great group of guys and we'll get ready for the next battle."'i tried to pull it back with my hand, and obviously that's why i look so terrible. i just floated it in there and it landed in the guy's lap. it's just one of those that, you just sit there and... one of the dumbest plays you could even have, but it is what it is. i knew what i should have done as soon as that play was over."
