Texas A&M Player Quotes

Quarterback Jerrod Johnson

 

On the game...

“Last week was tough for us. You know, we made some mistakes. Nothing really matters unless you get a “W.” You can do whatever you want, but those critical plays, you’ve got to try to succeed in those.

 

One of the things coach tried to stress this week was tempo, tempo. I didn’t really notice injuries because I was focusing on the tempo. I guess the guys that came in did a great job of covering. We’ve got a pretty good offensive line.”

 

On not converting close 4th downs...

“It’s heartbreaking. It could have been the difference between a win and a loss. Put that on me. I should have pushed us through that.”

 

Fullback Jovorskie Lane

 

On making a big touchdown...

“I’m still pretty down about the loss. I’d rather win today than break a record.”

 

On missing the touchdown in the third quarter...

I put full responsibility on me for not getting that touchdown. Our offensive line did a great job blocking and Jerrod did his job, but I didn’t get the ball across those two yards.

 

Wide Receiver Ryan Tannehill

 

On the game...

“It really doesn’t mean that much [to have a good game] since we didn’t win. You can’t look at stats and numbers if you don’t get a “W.”

 

On next week’s game...

“We’ve got to beat Texas Tech. They’re a good team, but if we prepare and practice like we should, we can do that.

 

If I’m out there and I’m playing, I’m going to do my best. I think 12 catches is possible, but right now stats don’t really mean anything.

 

I think everyone’s patience is wearing a little thin. When you don’t make the critical plays, it really starts to wear on you. But this week we’re going to work on that and try to make that happen.”

 

Linebacker Von Miller

 

On the game...

“It’s tough [to move on] but everybody on the team knows we’re that close to being a good team and we’re going to keep working.

 

Stats are good, but without a win, stats don’t really mean anything.”
