Post-Game Quotes: Smooth Cigars and Chest Hair
Even in a losing post-game locker room, good quotes can be had. Good visuals, too, as when Joe Bugel stroll through the locker room, frowning, his button down shirt unbuttoned and flapping, his chest hair and muscles defiantly scowling at the world. He's in much, much better shape than I am, ever have been, or ever will be. That was happy.
Or when Greg Blache unleashed more of his wisdom unto the world, via Comcast SportsyNet.
"No, not really," he said, when asked if he was satisfied to be 6-3. "Seven and two would have been a heckuva lot better. You know, breakfast tastes a little bit better, cigars would be a little bit smoother and drinks would be even nicer. It's not that I'm gonna pass up on any of those, but it just won't taste as good."
More locker room quotes:
Chris Samuels, on his knee: "I knew I was going to play pretty much. It was a question in a lot of people's mind or whatever. But I practiced all week long, struggled with the knee, but Sunday I actually felt pretty good. It's on fire right now, it's hurting, but everyone has something wrong with them at this point in the season. It's getting late, so everybody's banged up."
Santana Moss, on his post-bye health: "We'll see. Thinking and telling you are two different things. I'd rather tell you the truth."
Jason Campbell, on Moss's health: "Even tonight we weren't sure until he went out on the field with the trainers and the trainers said he could go, but he definitely wasn't 100 percent."
Carlos Rogers, on the election: "Hey, like a lot of people said, one president gonna stick it up your butt, the other one's gonna stick it further in the butt, so it don't matter, man. Whatever happens, happens. That's something we can't control."
Jim Zorn, on the offensive struggles: "Super frustrating. I didn't get into that rhythm because we didn't have a chance to....I thought our defense played very well. I think Greg would be able to cite opportunities that we had to really put the kibosh on 'em, and didn't, but they fought hard and a good team beat us today, a really good team beat us today. And we're a good team too, but we didn't sustain that rhythm if you will in the ball game."
Jim Zorn, on Carlos Rogers's drop: "I think it was the exact situation that we discussed in practice on Friday. Exactly. It was an opportunity for us to get the interception before worrying about running or anything else. And I think Carlos, he had a pretty good game, that was a great read, a great break on the ball, and this'll be a good lesson for him, and we'll restate it, but it was already stated. And that's frustrating for him and for all of us, because that was another one of those situations where we could have had a short field and try to create that rhythm that we were talking about. So it's already been said. Can we say it again? It would be kind of redundant in my meeting to go, 'See?!' But I'm sure it'll be said."
Greg Blache, on the drop: "That's two weeks in a row that he's probably had touchdowns. If he doesn't address this...you know, all we can do is talk to him. There's a point where he's gonna have to address it himself, and he's gonna have to make a commitment to it, and if he doesn't he's not gonna get the votes he needs to get to Hawaii. It's just that pure and simple. I love him, and I love the way he competes, but there's areas that we all need to improve on and that's one area I think he needs to focus and concentrate on and it hurts us all when he dropped those opportunities, it hurts us considerably."
Carlos Rogers, on the drop: "We play man-to-man 90 percent of the time, so I'm gonna get my chances. When they come, especially with me being on the number one receiver each and every week, I'm getting my chances. I just got to capitalize on them."
Santana Moss, on the offense vs. Pittsburgh: "They were who said they were. They blitzed us, they did all that they can do and they was efficient at it. Sometimes it's like that. They did a great job but I still didn't feel like we played our best on offense. And when you have an offensive performance like we did tonight, you shouldn't win. The defense can't stay on the field, the defense can't keep saving you. We had to do something."
London Fletcher, on the loss: "Extremely tough. You want to win on your home field; we haven't done that. Now we have two weeks 'till we play again. That makes it even worse."
Clinton Portis, on the loss: "We had pass protection problems, we had running lane problems. We just didn't get it done."
Randy Thomas, on the loss: "You have your ups and downs, but we had more downs than ups today. We've got to swallow our pride and let them know then they whup us. And they whupped us."
