"On Feeling the Pressure of the Cowboys Defense “It’s a good front. They’ve got big team speed. I was probably holding the ball a bit to long on some of the plays. The offensive line, I think they did a great job. I see some adjustments in different things. Four games into the year, you can’t practice everything. All we can do is make the adjustments and hope we do better next week.” Overall Performance of the Cowboys Defense “They have some good personnel on defense. I think they gave us a few different fronts, a few different coverages. They came in with an approach and I thought we settled in, made some plays to start the second half. We did play better.” On RDE Greg Hardy and WLB Sean Lee “I think those great players, I think two players. They (Cowboys) had play nix and they have a good defense.” On Today’s Game “That was a big win for us. Going on the road is never easy, especially when they get two key guys back. They really are a good team.” They (Cowboys) obviously gave us some trick plays, but we got by with the win.” On RB Dion Lewis “He’s pretty unique. He’s done a great job for us and I think his coming in has made a huge impact on our team. I’m sure he had a lot of weak in himself, obviously missing a lot of football last year. He’s just been an amazing player for our team in four games. You got to keep it going. It’s a long season. We are four games into it and we got to get ready to go and get all those back in it this year.” On Adjustments Made In the Second Half “I think we just made a couple of more plays.”"
"“I can just focus on doing what I can to help this team win and go out there to work as hard as I can.” On his TD: “I was trying to catch the ball and let my instincts take over after that…I was just to make a play, trying not to get hit…I was just trying to make a great play for my team. It was a great way to get us some momentum in the game.” “I’m not scared to get hit. I get every play so I’m definitely not scared to hit. I was just running with my instincts and going with the play design, then let my instincts take over after that and do what I’m coach to do.” More on his TD catch: “I just ran to the flat. It seemed like (the ball) was behind me, so I had to adjust to it. I turned around, somebody was in front of me I think – I don’t really remember, but I think somebody was in front me. Then somebody came from the side, I ducked under and I really don’t remember what happened after that.” “I was just out there playing. It’s something I work hard at, so when I’m out there in the game it just comes as instincts. Just trying to make a play for my team is what it comes down to…” On his journey: “It’s just how things work out. Everybody has a different path. My path was a little bit harder. I think it was God testing me to see how bad I really wanted it. Just come out here and keep working. People close to me, my family and friends, they know what kind of attitude I have and my abilities. They are not surprised at what I’m doing. I’m trying to get better every week. I’ve still got a lot of work to do.”"
