Re: Stephen Ross says he likes direction of the team despite the loss:

No question. He sees the difference. He’s around all the time. He sees the direction this team is headed in and it’s headed in the right direction.

How tough was it to watch today instead of play?

I said before it was going to be tough to watch. I was excited to be out there. The atmosphere was unbelievable. I just wish these guys could have pulled it out. It was a tough loss for our football team.

Do you expect to be back here next year?

We will see. I don’t want to make any expectations at this time. Obviously we feel good about our football team.

What would make this team continue to be a playoff team?

We just need to keep doing what we did this year. We stuck together. We had a lot of team chemistry and we had guys play well that we did not expect to play well. That’s what happens when you are a team that turns the corner, guys step up and make plays.
