Defensive Coordinator Jim Johnson

Johnson: "I think we did a pretty good job. I think outside of the one pass where he scrambled and the guy broke a couple of tackles, I think we did a pretty good job."

Johnson:"I said it before it was tackling and making sure we were in good gap control. We were most of the game. We had one bad play against us and we tackled well. We had a lot of people running to the football and we tackled well."

Smith:"It's kind of a combination. We blitzed a little bit, but we went back. It depends, it's game management, how many time outs they have left, you don't want to give up a big play if they do blitz. It's just time management; make them work the whole length of the field. That's part of it."*
