(opening statement )

Obviously, that was a big win for us. Credit Tennessee, it was a hard fought game. I thought both teams played hard, fought through some adversity and it was a gut check win for us. A lot of things early on didnít go our way. We had some calls maybe that could have went either way. We just kept fighting and won a good game on the road against a good team so I credit them, Mike (Munchak) and staff. We knew going into this game they were going to be a tough team to play especially here and that makes the win even that much more important.

(on grading the offense today )

We felt like we played a really good defensive team. I thought our third down numbers, just looking at them, were good 11 of 18. We had to at times be patient. I thought the penalties in the first half hurt us. They make it tough on your drives to stay on the field. I thought we eliminated some of that in the second half but overall it was enough to get the win today and fortunately that is most important so a little bit different game. I thought we ran the ball fairly well especially later in the game but all-in-all one thing we have to do better job with is we had 11 penalties for 95 yards. We have got to be better there.

(on Jimmy Grahamís performance)

There were kind of crazy sequences of events. We had an additional game-day spot with Sedrick Ellis. We thought Sedrick was going to play today but in pregame his hamstring felt tighter than normal and so we had a decision between a couple of players and we brought up (Michael) Higgins our third tightend in event we needed depth at that position. In about ten minutes after we did that, we turned in the inactives, Jimmy (Graham) had his back get tight in pregame warmups. In fact he came into the locker room and we thought at that point it was a good chance he was not going to play. So at that point it was a matter of just calming down his stiffness. It was one of those where he was having trouble really moving. Fortunately, the doctors did a good job and he was able to handle that and I thought early in the game that he still saw effects from the stiffness in his back and I thought probably after the first quarter he felt a lot better. We were fortunate that he was able to get back in the game and make some plays but that happened during pregame warmups. Again, not having Sedrick in the game all of a sudden was a little bit of a shift we really didnít expect.

(on Tennessee Titansí big plays late in the game)

We canít point to one defense, there are a couple of different defenses called and they made a couple of big throws and catches especially in the middle of the field. There were a couple of them that were real good plays by them and credit them. It wasnít just one defense, it was a couple of different looks. It went back and forth obviously. Late in the game they became one dimensional to get back into the game so you are going to see more passing attempts than rushing attempts. The stops on fourth downs, especially the last fourth down was big.

That's happened for multiple games this year. I want to highlight that so people can see what kind of position Williams' has put Shanle in all year. He's covering slot receivers for crying out loud... and in my opinion, has done the best job out of all of them. Herring is fast as he's a former college safety... Washington absolutely blew by him and he wasn't in the picture for over 5 yards.

When they go 3 or 4 wide, can we please for the love of goobers, run a true nickel or dime? Having our middle linebacker drop 10 yards back and moving our OLB on the slot DOESN'T WORK... it hasn't the past 2 YEARS. Mercy.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Did anyone else not notice that BIG SED wasn't in the game? Do you think there was a drop off in quality on the D-Line?

"Sean Payton is real particular about what he wants us to wear and Iím not going to get yelled at on the sideline for not wearing the right cleats".

I got a good laugh from this statement from Jimmy Graham.
