Football Quotes

Here are some player quotes from last night's game:

Chris Turner:

“My first thoughts when we walked out on the field were that I knew we had enough time to get ourselves into position to win. We made some plays and got lucky a few times. But it was a great job by everyone.”

“It was pretty tough to throw actually, there were times when I would get the ball and it was completely soaked and other times under the center when I felt like I was barely holding onto the ball. It was quite a struggle.”

“Getting the running game going was huge because obviously the conditions made it difficult to throw the ball as much as I need to, so the fact that we got the running game going was a big help. Both running backs really stepped up.”

Dan Gronkowski:

“We were all fired up walking out for that last possession. When Da’Rel got hurt, he got us even more fired up. But we knew the whole time that we were going to go down there and score, and that was just our mentality.”

“I definitely feel like I am becoming a go-to guy in this offense. After spring ball, I kind of knew I was going to be a big target. I have been a little hurt so far this year, but I have been feeling better lately and things are starting to click.”

Jeremy Navarre:

“Containing Russell Wilson was very frustrating and I really feel like he is going to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league. He has three years left and he was really fast. We had a hard time keeping him contained and that’s what we had to do. We made a few good plays on him at the end of the game, and that was all we needed.”

(on the sack)
“I just didn’t want that guy running 20 yards down field and I saw him about to start breaking away, so I just reached up there and dragged him down.”

(on the rain)
“The rain factored a lot into the game. It was nasty out there. I have never played in anything like that in my life. Being cold is one thing, but when it is cold and raining out there that’s another.”

Obi Egekeze:

(on the last kick)
“I just prayed, Lord is a wonderful God, I’m going to go out there, have my eyes back and kick it.”

“(Andrew) Schmitt and (Travis) Baltz had the hardest job to snap it and hold it with the ball being so wet. I thought it was amazing how well they did that. It made it a lot easier for me, what they do is not an easy job.”

(on being ready)
“Yeah, I definitely was. Everyone said we’re going to need you, and I was prepared to go out there and do what I needed to do.”

Was anyone else irritated MD didn't try to pound the ball into the endzone at the end of the game? In weather like that is a field goal with the snap and hold really a safer play than Megget or Jackson up the gut a couple of times? At least try a run up the middle to center the ball just in casse it works...
