It was a big statement, ... That's what we try to do all the time. I was telling some of the guys, 'We are a blue-collar city. We are a blue-collar defense.' We may give up a few plays here and there, but the most important thing is keeping them out of the end zone and we were able to do that today against a great offense, an offense that can beat you in so many ways.

Leave it to y'all in the media to figure out who got singled out. This is still a team game and what's said between these walls stays between these walls.

I can't lie and say I haven't been waiting on this game for a while. We both have.

I didn't make a play on him.

I still have my same room over there. I can still crash.

It's a special chance for us to showcase what we can do. We can show everybody that this is a new team, not the same old Lions .

That's a big loss. He's a Pro Bowler, ... I think that limited them.

It's just a weird feeling. You try hard. You play hard to get something going. We got some things going in the second half, but we spotted them 20 points, and we just ran out of clock. That's how I feel about it. We got started a little late and ran out of time.

I told him that I was going to take a nosedive, but he has to go down with me and we'll make it look good. No one gets hurt, he doesn't gain any extra yards, the coaches don't chew me out and we can live to see another day. Yeah, we're going to have a truce.
