COACH BUTCH DAVIS: "We had a lot of guys who got hurt last week. But the character and courage of guys like Dan Morgan and Al Blades and others to fight through the tough times, through the pain and injuries ... because it means a lot to them to get out and play and lay it on the line on Saturdays."
DAVIS:"I would like to tell you how proud I am of this football team. Their ability, week after week, to do things that are somewhat unique; their ability to concentrate and focus on one game at a time; and their ability for guys to step up in some real adverse situations."
RECEIVER SANTANA MOSS ON HIS FIRST TOUCHDOWN RECEPTION, A 42-YARDER:"We have practiced it all week. Coach called the Z-Pump. I went out and did my assignment and Ken Dorsey found me wide open and I just took it in for the score."
MOSS ON HIS SECOND TOUCHDOWN RECEPTION, AN 80-YARDER:"I was stride for stride for a minute. I thought Kenny overthrew me. But I guess I got my legs back and went up and got it."
QUARTERBACK KEN DORSEY:"I think it all goes back to the offensive line. They did a great job of opening up holes for James Jackson and Najeh Davenport and did a great job of picking up blitzes and pass protecting. When they are playing that well we are tough to beat."
DORSEY:"The throw to (tight end Jeremy) Shockey was an amazing play on his part. They blitzed the house on us and it just so happened we had that route built into the play. And he made a couple of great moves."
LINEBACKER DAN MORGAN: "Their quarterbacks bring two different games. When (Dave) Meyer is in there you don't have to worry about his scrambling ability. You worry more about the coverage. When (Michael) Vick is in there you have to worry about both aspects. He can run the ball on you. We just had to play defense like we usually do, just run around and swarm the ball."
DEFENSIVE TACKLE DAMIONE LEWIS ON WHETHER UM CAUGHT A BREAK BY PLAYING THE HOKIES WITH AN INJURED VICK:"All I can say about that is, does Michael Vick play defense?"
