Game Vs. Cowboys: QB Jon Kitna

QB Jon Kitna

On if the Cowboys played well enough to win: "I think if we played well enough to win than we would have won. That's the way I always look at it. That's a good football team. That's a really, really good football team in every phase of the game and you can't give them plays and that's what we did today. A lot of things they forced us into but there were a lot of unforced errors that we put on ourselves. You can't do that… not in this league and not against a good football team."

On if he was satisfied with his performance:"No."

On if he is ever satisfied with his performance: "Yeah, when we win."

On the offensive Performance of the Cowboys:"We turned the ball over twice and you can't do that. I think we should have had a pass interference on the first one that's for sure. But you can't turn the ball over… not against that football team, not in this league. If we don't have turnovers, I think they had ten points off of turnovers maybe and it was the difference in the ballgame."

On if the Eagles made adjustments to stop the Cowboys' running game in the second half: "They were pretty much doing the same thing the whole game. In the first half, we had a couple of big runs and that seemed to kind of hurt them but we just weren't as effective as we wanted to be. That's a good football team… a lot of speed, they move quickly, they hit gaps and that makes it tough. We weren't able to get it done tonight."

On why Cowboys Receiver Miles Austin wasn't as involved tonight: "I don't know. You'd have to ask the coaches. I have no idea. I can't answer that question."

On his thoughts on the interception where it looked like a penalty: "It was pass interference and they didn't call it. When he came out of his break, the linebacker hit him in the helmet, while the ball was in the air. You can't hit a receiver while the ball is in the air and you certainly can't hit him in the helmet. They missed that call."

On his approach entering each game: "My mindset is to do everything as unto the Lord. That's what the Bible tells me to do. That's my authority in life and so the record doesn't really mean anything to me in terms of attitude or the way I approach anything. We have a job to do and the greatest thing about this league is you have a chance to compete with the best in the world. I want to take advantage of that regardless of our record."

On if he expected to get the Ball Back Towards the End of the Game:"Of course. Of course you do. But, you know, I told those guys on defense that on offense, we put those guys in bad positions tonight and you can't do that."
