On The Loss

I think Dallas really is a good football team. They are tough to play against, very explosive offensively. I don’t think the short week and the travel were to fault, they are good and I will give them that. It’s a tough year for us but we are going to keep it going.

Normally speaking I think we would have pass contested a little bit better than what we did today. At one point I did think our pressure on Romo helped slow him down. Yes, I think it could have helped to start the game but who’s to say that wouldn’t have worked. Dallas has a charismatic QB that they believe in and explosive team. They have a good group over there.

Strength and Downfall of the team

Defense did well for a stretch. I thought, we also moved the ball pretty well but we also have no margin for error. When we are in the red zone and we don’t score, it’s not a good thing with this team [Dallas Cowboys].

Against TO: Marcus Trufant

Clearly it’s the best match up for us. Clearly for one player to take on Terell for the whole game is a tough job. He is our best player and our best match up for us. Dallas has a good group and when their offense is clicking they are an even harder team to play against.

Going Forward

We know this, but I think the country perhaps, got a glimpse of a what’s to come with John Carlson. I think he is going to develop and give us a lot to look forward to. He has a pretty good future.

Matt Hasselbeck QB

I want him to feel good about the season in the end. That will help him next year. I was worried about him getting hit but I need him in the game. He has taken a lot of hits this season so I hold my breath each time he gets hit but I told him he’s not coming out of the game anymore.
