"We fought all the way, it looks like we had a lot of penalties that really hurt us field position-wise. We just couldn't make the plays when we needed to make them. The Giants were a good football team. We knew that. We knew it was hard to beat somebody three times in one year. Really, I thought the touchdown before the half was the one that really hurt us. That and they played real well in the second half. I think they held us to three points in the second half. We lacked field position through the game, and that was our fault. And we had the penalties on key plays, certainly. We had the 15-yard penalty on the reception to Witten for a first down.
"I'm disappointed overall. It was 14-14 at half and we still had a chance to win.
"I think we're a very good football team. From year to year, it changes obviously.
"We had a mixup on personnel. We had too many guys out there and couldn't afford a penalty in that situation so we called a timeout.
"I thought we moved the ball well, we played aggressive, we ran the ball better. We didn't have any trouble running the ball, I thought. I thought we established a better running game. I think we were controlling the game. We let them back in and that gave them hope. Then we gave them field position and had to settle for three points instead of seven.
"In the first half, we had them worn-down a little bit defensively.
"We felt like we could throw, we did throw it well. I don't know how many yards we had, but we did throw it well.
"We didn't play well enough to win. We didn't coach well enough to win.
