HEAD COACH GARY KUBIAK (Transcribed by Greg Dillard)
(on establishing a franchise points record today) “I really didn’t know that until I walked off the field. We got off to a slow start. They’re very difficult, some of the things they do but we just kind of hung in there. Defense made the big play to kind of spark the football team and then we moved the ball pretty darn good for three and a half quarters. It was a team effort. The thing I was most proud of today I think everybody pitched in. I think a lot of guys were doing some good things. I think the leaders, (QB) Matt (Schaub), (WR) Andre (Johnson), (DE) Antonio (Smith), the guys that are captains of our football team picked it up a notch today.”

(on if there was anything he didn’t like offensively) “I’m sure I’ll find something. It’s what I do for a living. I didn’t like the way we came out of the locker room in the third quarter. We missed a blitz. (RB) Arian (Foster) missed a blitz. We had a good conversation about that. Those things are going to happen, but it’s how you respond to things like that. Boy he responds. He’s huge on the next drive. I think it’s a 13 or 14 play drive. That’s what this game is about, week to week, responding to adversity in the games, responding to adversity. Like I said today, we were really into what we were doing and we were there all day long so it was a good team effort.”

(on RB Ben Tate) “He had a good week of practice and he’s important. He gives us a spark when he’s in there, but also that little one (RB) Justin (Forsett), you all watch him at the end, he’s a heck of player. But Ben’s (Tate) got a little hamstring issue. We come out of the game with Ben (Tate) having a hamstring issue. (OLB Bryan) Braman’s got a stinger that we’re dealing with. (NT) Earl Mitchell has an ankle. Probably our most concern is Ben (Tate) coming out of this game. We do have some time on our hands.”

(on QB Matt Schaub’s attempt at blocking Ravens’ LB Terrell Suggs ) “He asked me about his block and I told him I didn’t think there was much to talk about there.”

(on if OLB Whitney Mercilus’ sack-fumble amped him up a little bit more before the safety) “Well yeah. If Whit (Mercilus) has a sack and I have no sacks, that’s really bad (laughs). No, I was happy for him. He was unblocked that play too, so we both got unblocked two plays in a row, so good job, Wade (Phillips). No, I was happy for him. I was kind of upset because he knocked the ball out on my side and I was back behind and I wish I had been there to recover it.”

(on if he likes wearing the red) “Everybody on our team likes wearing the red. We always talk about we wish we could wear the red more than once a year.”

(on if he felt it to be a more stimulating aggressive color, psychologically) “No I don’t think so. I just think we like how we look in the red. I don’t think that psychologically we’re not thinking that much before the game about our uniform.”

(on if thinks it’s cool to see the red in the crowd) “Yeah, no, somebody said that to me today. I didn’t even notice, (OLB Brian) Cushing or something, saying that the red looks good and the stadium looks awesome with everybody wearing all red.”

Thanks for the post. I heard his presser after the game but you can't always hear the questions being asked. I am worried about Tate. Hopefully 2 weeks will be enough rest. If not we'll be all right with Forsett against the Bills.

From the quotes - just wanted to point this out for the field turf advocates:

Andre (Johnson) right now is playing as good to me the last two weeks he’s looked closer to himself than the start of the season. I think he’s really starting to come along and feel a lot better about things. We got off the turf. We’ve been on grass now for a few weeks and he’ll get a break. I think he’s only going to get better throughout the course of the season.

“I’m concerned about everything,” Harbaugh said, via Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun. “What aren’t you concerned about? Sometimes you get tossed out of the bar. We came in with hype, with good intentions and ready to battle. I thought our guys fought. We kept running back in and they kept throwing us back out.”

From the quotes - just wanted to point this out for the field turf advocates:

Thank you!!! Other than Bellacheats comments after (who was it that blew out his knee), most players like the surface at Reliant. It may not be "ready made" for pretty TV by the end of the season, but it's generally good on knees, ankles and the like...........
