It was a never-quit game for both teams.
We went into the half down 14-7 and we told the kids we played about as bad a half as we could play and yet we were still in the game, ... But we got a big play out of special teams and that kind of kick-started us.
We were trying to kick it away from Graves and we kicked it over there to Chris Fountain, ... The next thing I know he's going up the sideline. I should have known better that that because his dad (Richard) was a pretty good athlete.
They have found a lot of creative and unique ways to get their athletes the ball.
We love him, ... We're continuously helping him out as far as giving him confidence, because in this league confidence is everything. We're not telling him not to do things, we're telling him to be smarter.
I got kicked on the inside at the end of the game in Portland. It was a bone bruise. It was real puffy and stiff, but the swelling has gone down a little bit. I never had one like this, on the inside.
It takes a split second to get hurt and forever to get healed. It's hard. It's very difficult mentally.
The kid is unbelievable, ... I've never seen anything like it, in the NFL, or whatever.
We look good, but a little inexperienced and young. It comes down to good coaching, a lot of hard work and a little luck and we'll be all right.
Police have a lot more clout now and they really seem to be using it.
There have been a couple times when it was a Monday morning quarterback-type thing. Things where I wish I had rested a little more or could have been more aggressive in a meet. It's not anything major, just little things here and there.
There's not so much tension; all the athletes are on good terms. You get your feet wet at big meets like this, but I've been there before, so now I can use that intensity and focus to my advantage.
