Q: On tonight's overall defensive effort
BYARD: "I'm just proud of the way we played. I don't know how many plays we had on defense, probably like a hundred. We gave up a ton of yards. We battled our [butt] off the majority of the game against an explosive offense. After they kicked the field goal in overtime, I went over to the sideline and said, 'Hey, you're all jacked up, you all missed some plays and stuff like that, I can't ask for nothing more when everyone's out there battling, guys that are injured, giving everything they've got. That's all I can ask for at the end of the day. Yes, disappointed by the loss, what more can I say?"
Q: As a team, is there something you can learn from this?
BYARD: "No, we lost. I don't look at it like a moral victory either. At the end of the day, I can just speak for the guys. This is a human business. We are people. These people right here. They really give everything they've got and that's all I can really ask for. Yes, we wanted to win the ballgame, and we didn't win the ballgame. It was a great game, we got a lot of stops out there. We just battled our behinds off. Like I said, we're obviously disappointed in the results, but I can't ask for anything more."
