LIONS HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL
(Why did your team self-destruct with some of the penalties and drops…) “Some things are inexplicable. Our guys have usually been pretty sharp with catching the ball. We had some drops out there that we customarily don’t have. We lost our poise a couple of times is the fact of the matter. It was a couple of older guys. There were a couple of them that were debatable but I do think that is uncharacteristic. We have to get better in that area.”
(Did the official say anything to you about the no call on the touchdown catch…) “I’m not going to go into all of that. That’s not why we lost the game. Calls are calls, you have to overcome them. We just didn’t play well enough.”
(Why do your think your team didn’t play well enough tonight…) “I don’t think it was any of that. A couple of the guys we got have been in so many big playoff games, so they have been in them before. So it’s not like it’s a young guy. I didn’t see some of the entire play, so I cannot tell you certain until I take a real good look at the film. But never the less it was called and it shouldn’t happen.”
(The fourth and one play call, what happened…) “It was designed to work, obviously but they had it covered up. But you have to go for it in that situation and we didn’t get it. They did a better job of covering it then we did of executing it.”
(Thoughts on punting down fourth and ten with eight minutes to go…) “It’s a two score game in that situation. You punt it, you get them stopped, we had our timeouts to use. In that situation, you still have a chance to get a score if you can stop them, however much time you might have left after an onside kick or whatever it might be. A two score game in that situation, a fourth down and ten is a long way to go and we thought our best chance was to see if we could get them stopped another way. And it didn’t work out quite that way.”Read More...
