HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER
(on the first half)
I was disappointed with the two special teams penalties in the first half. We don't need to have those. That put us in a hole, but it was a really nice job by the offense to put together that long drive for points. We made some plays. Defensively, we had three straight three-and-outs, and that was a good way to start it off. We gave up a couple plays there in the second quarter, including a couple long balls, but it was good to hold them to a field goal. Overall, we did OK. We're going to play the younger players in the second half and try to find a way to win it.
QB VINCE YOUNG
(on the starting offense's performance)
We started a little slow tonight, but then we got in a nice rhythm. We got a couple good drives for points, so that was good. Overall, we can build on what we did tonight.
(on his confidence level after two preseason games)
I think we're all playing with confidence out there. It all starts with the O-line. When we break the huddle, we look for those guys to set the tone, and we fall in right behind them.
WR NATE WASHINGTON
(on the offense's rhythm)
We're still a work in progress. But I thought we made some plays out there tonight. We still have some kinks to work out, but it's getting there. We're in a much better position than this time last year.
(on the talk on the sidelines with Jeff Fisher during the replay challenge)
I told him that I definitely made the catch. He told me about a receiver here before who acted the same way and the replay showed that it bounced twice. I knew I made the catch though.
LB WILL WITHERSPOON
(on the starting defense's performance)
It was a real solid performance. To hold them to just three points in the first half is a real positive. All in all, you would like to limit them to no points, but they're a good offense. They put together a good drive and hit us with some calls.
(on holding the Cardinals to a field goal after a long drive)
That was huge for us. It's all about pride once they get down there. You always want to hold them to three points or none. We did our job and limited it to three.
