Eagles Locker Room -- Offense

RB LeSean McCoy

On how much this loss hurts: "It hurts a lot. We put so much into this since the offseason. We trained and worked so hard to get to this level and lose a game like this."

On whether he feels like the offense could have done more: "Yeah, I feel like we let the team down. The first half we couldn't do anything. We didn't capitalize on any of the turnovers we got. We won the turnover battle and we could have done more."

On what he was feeling when he watched the Saints march down the field at the end of the game: "It sucks, because there was nothing we could do, but watch. They killed us slowly. It was a terrible feeling."

On what kind of learning experience will this year be going into next year: "I don't know if it's a learning experience. I have been here before. You can only pick up so much from this. We just have to get better. I think we have to execute when we need to. We needed to keep riding that hot streak. I thought we were hot. Obviously, we weren't."

On whether this loss is as tough as he has ever experienced: "Yeah, we had to answer. We picked up the slack when we needed to. That return really killed us. They just milked the clock and kicked a field goal."

On why he thinks the offense struggled to get into a rhythm tonight: "I am not really sure. It just wasn't clicking."

Wide Receiver Riley Cooper

On the offense leaving too much on the field in the first half: "I don't know, I am not sure. I really don't know what happened. I would have to go back and look and see what we did."

On putting the dropped ball behind him: "Yeah, it is a part of the game. It happened at a crappy time for sure. It was my second drop of the year. It's tough, but there isn't a receiver that catches them all."

On his touchdown catch: "It was just an in-route. Nick (Foles) just sat in the pocket and waited until I got all the way on the other side of the field and then he threw a great ball."

On how Foles had so much time to find him for the touchdown: "Yeah the line did a great job. I was the last read on (that play). Nick went through all his progressions and ended up finding me in almost a scramble mode."

On the team fighting back after being down 20-7: "That is who we are. We do not give up. We are going to take it play-by-play and drive-by-drive and game-by-game. That is how we are built."

On coming back next season: "Yeah, I want to be back next season. I love the coaching staff. I feel like I fit in the system. I just love playing the game hard. I love blocking, I like the whole game of football. I definitely hope I am back for sure."

K Alex Henery

On his performance tonight: "It's science, the ball is not going to travel as far when it's cold. It's one of those things we work with. We were trying to be more directional with the ball and get them outside the numbers. I thought I did a good job with that. There was one short one that I was not happy with. Other than that, the last kickoff I was happy with where it went. It was two yards deep, into the wind. He just got outside of us. We have to cover better and we could always have better kicks."

On the way the team fought back tonight: "This team, all year long was a group of fighters. It's a good group of guys who fight for each other and never give up."

On whether his missed 48-yard field goal is going to haunt him for a while: "I'm not happy about it. It's one of those things that when the weather is cold, you either hit it great or if you don't hit it well, it's not going to travel far. My first kickoff, I got under it and it went to the 10 yard line. It is just one of those things, it's tough on a cold day, but there is no excuse. I have to make those and help the team out."
