Post-Game Quotes: QB Terrelle Pryor

On how he feels after the loss:

PRYOR: I feel good.  It's an embarrassing team loss; we just have to get better and we have to be better all-around offensively. I think the Eagles made some plays on offense and made some plays on defense a little bit but I think we pretty much stopped ourselves on offense. It was just one of those games.

On how his knee feels:

PRYOR: Good. We have to look at it further tomorrow but it's stable, I can walk. Nothing is wobbly or anything like that.

On facing pressure as the quarterback:

PRYOR: I don't have pressure, I just go out and make plays.

On if this loss is a step backwards for the team:

PRYOR: It's a step back. Like I said, they get paid, too. Those guys give the contracts for a lot of money; they get paid, too, to make plays. They made more plays than us.

On possible frustration from dropped passes leading to interceptions:

PRYOR: At the end of the day when you're getting looked around or maybe ten years later, eight years later, two years later when you're getting traded or stuff like that it's the only time it really has a thing is they look at the interception ratio. It's frustrating about that but I love my guys, I love the guys I'm playing with. We just have to make better plays and it starts with me.

On what he was telling the offense late in the game:

PRYOR: I was just saying, 'Let's go. Let's go down and score.' I had the guys fired up and they were ready. I had the offensive line going, they were fired up. The receivers were ready to go; that was the first time I really faced that type of score. That's what happens in the NFL I guess. They were better than us.

On possible concern over his knee injury:

PRYOR: No, because like I said, the first thing they asked was, 'Is it wobbly at all?' I can bend it right now, turn it sideways but I'm good, just a little sore. They said it was just precautionary. They took me upstairs earlier just to get some ice and get a shower.

On lack of time to make reads:

PRYOR: A few times I was able to, like I said, I thought our offense line did great. Obviously there was pressure but that happens. Like I said, they get paid too. It's a one on one battle and sometimes when guys are getting in it and they don't get blocked, it's my job to make them miss or get the ball out. I just have to make plays and continue to help the team and help the offense. It's a group effort. At the end of the day it's a group effort. I think we made a lot of plays I just think we didn't make enough.
