Coach Jeff Fisher
"We talked all week about the importance of really picking things up and going
out and executing and doing the right things, not running a route short, not making
the mistakes that we have made over the last four weeks.
And that is exactly what they did. I am sure we have some things, some issues.
They made some plays and they forced some issues. I think this was the best game
we have played thus far. The timing is good because next week is going to be a
little unusual for both clubs."
I think if anybody had any doubt, I think we are a pretty good football team.
Having said that, no one really chose us to win this game. I think everybody was
picking the Steelers to win. Nobody blinked an eye. We just came out and tried
to execute. We played a pretty good game."
"Our number one thing was to shut down the run and then force them to hold the
ball a little longer which means we had to cover down because Ben (Roethlisberger)
is the type of quarterback who throws best on the run. He throws good in the
pocket as well but when he’s being mobile and moving around, I think he makes
more plays down the field. His wide receivers, they’re all on the same page so
I think he does a great job of that. I think our game plan worked pretty effectively
"We are a hard working and hungry football team and its playoff time and we got
to play our best football at this time of the year. I think we took a step toward
that today. We played Pittsburgh which is one of the top teams in the NFL and
we got a victory."
"I didn’t think it would happen like this. Everything just came and everything
was just opening up. I’m blessed and I’m glad I had this type of game. I’m going
to celebrate it, and then we’re going to get ready for the Colts next week."
