Game Vs. Titans: QB Kevin Kolb

On fumble at the goal line:We had a little miscue down there. It comes from our communication in the huddle. It just can't happen. It's nobody's fault and it's everybody's fault. You cannot do that. Obviously, that was the turning point in the ballgame. They got momentum back. We made a mistake. I know exactly what went wrong. I'm not going to say one thing or the other, but it's an easy fix and it just can't happen.

On when he knew Jason Jones caused the disruption on fumble play: When I got hit. I didn't even know the ball was out. I'll know when I see it. I didn't know if he knocked it out before I got it to LeSean (McCoy). It was a bang-bang play and didn't turn out in our favor.

On his performance in the game: I felt like we battled. I felt like we put drive after drive after drive together. I missed too many easy ones early. We had a chance to get one of those shots on them, really about three of them. We just didn't execute it and I feel like that really kept them hanging around. You can't do that. We have to have, as we've been saying for a couple of weeks now, a step on their throat mentality. And it came back and bit us today. We're a young team. We have to learn from it. I have to learn from it and I have to execute those early. When it was an eight or nine point ballgame, we just kept letting them hang around. In the NFL, that's going to get you in trouble.

On whether he is disappointed that Andy Reid named Michael Vick as the team's post-bye starter: Sure it is. I enjoy playing out there and I want to continue to play. You learn something every time. You feel like you read things a little faster every time. And that's what you want to continue to do. But, I'll say it again, I always trust him. I trust him now.

On if he thought about how his performance today could affect Reid's decision: I didn't even think about it. All I wanted to do was go be 5-2. We had a chance to do it and didn't do it. So, you can only learn from it.

On how to better finish games: Obviously we don't know. The biggest thing is that I think the playcalling is still aggressive. We just have to keep our aggressive mentality. It's human nature when you get ahead to settle. That's why you see comebacks like that. We can't settle. It starts with me. I'm the guy with the ball in my hands on the offensive side. We just didn't do that today and we didn't do it last week when we had a chance to put that game away.

On his mental approach to the bye week: That's a good question. I think the only thing I can do is keep my head up and understand and know and have the confidence that I can play this game and I can win with this team. That's just my mentality. Stay ready for when the time comes and make sure you keep your confidence up. That's what I'll try to do.
