(On the change in starting quarterback back to Marc Bulger)
"Jim (Haslett) is the new head coach and that is his decision and I told him I support it. I was brought here originally, eight months ago, to be Marc's (Bulger) backup. I appreciate the opportunity. I told Scott (Linehan) thanks for the opportunity. It was fun to get back out on the field again. Every time I get an opportunity to play, it just reconfirms that I made the right decision in coming back. I really enjoyed myself, it was a lot of fun. I think the guys rallied around it. I thought we moved the ball well, but we weren't able to finish some drives. I felt the guys responded well to the change and I was proud of the whole group."
(On the interception intended for Torry Holt and if that pass was completed what changes could have been made)
"There are a lot of ramifications from the pass. I put it to the spot I thought he was going be, he ran to the spot he thought he was supposed to be and that's football."
(On how he thinks things went in the game against Buffalo)
"We didn't win so that's the bottom line for every position, but ultimately for the quarterback and that tends to weigh a little bit more heavily on the quarterback. It wasn't good enough to get the win and when the team has made a head coach… I had a feeling that was what was going to happen."
(On why that was)
"I think it was pretty clear last week that the one behind the whole thing was Scott (Linehan) as far as getting me in there. I think everyone else was pretty supportive of Marc (Bulger) so that's why."
(On if the decision bothered him)
"Oh no. Like I said, I just like playing. Like I said already, I just told Scott (Linehan) I appreciate the opportunity and I gave it everything I had and I tried rallying the troops and I thought they responded well."
