"it's crazy how fast it ends," said quarterback alex smith. "it's over. that's it. it's over right now, just like that. we weren't able to get it done today, and that's how it goes." "we'll learn from our mistakes, and how you go about your business if you want to continue to play in the postseason," said head coach
