Game Vs. Redskins: Quarterback Sam Bradford



Eagles QB Sam Bradford**

On the disappointment level of the team:
"I mean, I don't know if there are really words to describe it to be honest with you."

On the drops throughout the game and throughout the season:
"It's a great question. I don't know. It's frustrating when they happen, but I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't lose confidence in those guys. I'm still going to throw it to them. I trust every one of them to go and make plays because they've shown that they have. Unfortunately, we had a few of them tonight."

On how he feels about WR Jordan Matthews' comments regarding the importance of resigning Bradford:
"Obviously for Jordan to say something like that, you know, it means a lot to me. Obviously, he is a guy who gives it his all every week for us. He plays extremely hard, has made a lot of plays for us. You always appreciate when your teammates say things like that about you. As far as the future, I mean, I'd like to be back here but that's not my choice."

On whether Matthews has conveyed that to him verbally:
"Um, no. That would be the first time that I've heard that."

On what happened on the pass to TE Zach Ertz in the second quarter along the left sideline:
"Just overthrew it."

On whether having new personnel for the next two drives after a successful first drive and running the ball a little more got them out of rhythm:
"I think it's just a matter of execution."

On whether Chip Kelly has let him know he wants him back next season:
"You know, obviously he said it a few weeks ago. You know, I want to be back here, like I said. Obviously, we are not at the stage where we have been talking about that, but if it does present itself and I do have the opportunity, then this is where I want to be."

On what he means when he says it's not his choice to return:
"Like I said, we haven't engaged in any talks about future contracts."

On why he thinks the team is sitting here at 6-9:
"Because we continue to shoot ourselves in the foot. The same things that we were doing in Week 1 and Week 2 we are continuing to do. Good football teams don't make the mistakes that we make on a weekly basis."

On the times where there was good ball movement but then a penalty, and whether this game mirrors the whole year:
"You could probably say that, yes."

On whether he feels he has grown in this offense and with this team:
"Yes. I do feel like I have improved as the year has gone on."

On whether it is baffling that they team improvement hasn't coincided with his improvement:
"A little bit."

On why he wants to come back next season:
"You know, I've enjoyed my time here. I've enjoyed being in Philadelphia. I think throughout my career, I've learned that learning new offenses every year, it's just hard to continue to improve. You are always learning. You are learning new verbiage, learning new plays, learning new systems. And I would really like to stay in the same one and have the opportunity to play a second year."
