On the Falcons ending their season with a win:

"It feels real good. I’m glad to get a victory today. We came out fired up and have a little time off now. We can kind of get ready for next year. It’s going to be a different team next year. We’ll be ready to roll."

On the play of the Falcons offense:

"The offense played really good today. I feel like everybody stepped up and did their job. We moved the ball well and I feel like we ran the ball pretty well. The offensive line protected well and it seemed like everybody was playing as one today."


On the Falcons ending their season with a win:

"It was big. We had a stormy year. It felt like a hurricane came through here. But, it was a great way to end the season."

On playing against his brother Jordan, a Seattle cornerback:

"It was pretty good. I just told him to do what he always does and he told me to do what I always do. So, we just went out there and gave it our all today."

On the play of the Falcons defense at the end of the game:

"We knew we had to step up and make some plays. Obviously, special teams was giving us good field position all day. Coach told us we needed stops and guys went out there and made plays."


On the Falcons ending their season with a win:

"It’s closure. It’s closure on a crazy year. Obviously, it’s always good to win, but mainly it’s closure. The offseason starts right now. Nobody knows what’s going to happen with our organization. It has a lot of work to do in the offseason, but it’s up to us as individuals to go home and get better so something like this doesn’t happen again."


On the game:

"We felt like we lost a little character and class and then our coach pulled us together in Tampa and informed us that we were going to play with class and character. Obviously we displayed that on the road in Arizona and we displayed that today."

On seeing the fans turnout today and their support:

"This town is starving for good football and the fans hold us to a high standard. That’s we get boos and a lot of times there are cheers. Ultimately, they just want to see good football. It was great seeing the crowd cheer and doing "the wave", which is something that I have not seen the entire season."

On the win:

"It was great for our team and our coach because Emmitt Thomas is a first class guy. He knows what it takes to win and how to stick it out. The first words that he said to us were that he was excited but he was also nervous and then he assured us that he was here for us until the end. He was very honest from the inception so we just went out and tried to play good football. Regardless of what we went through, I told that guys that for three hours we needed to put everything on the line, for the fans, for us and for the entire city of Atlanta. We just wanted to come out and play good football."

RB Warrick Dunn

On the game:

"We just came out today and played for each other. We wanted to finish up strong together. The important thing is that we went out and played well and we were able to pull out a win."

On Chris Redman:

"Well Chris is a guy that had not played football in years and he steps in the second half of the year and plays well. He understands what is going on and he is a guy that is going to take his shots and use his talent around him. I believe that he has a future in the NFL.

On the future of your career:

"I would be lying if I said that I did not want to come back and play here. It just really depends on what they want. Hopefully, they will want me back but they may not want me back and I will end up playing somewhere else. But being a Falcon has elevated me to another level on the football field. I have been highly appreciative of the fans and the people in Atlanta. I humbly embrace this time and I have and will continue to be appreciative of this time. We sacrifice our time and bodies for each other on this team and that is just a reflection of the franchise’s effort to create a great environment for great football."
