Post Game Quotes

Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy

(on the game)  "I'm obviously very proud of our guys.  They came out and played well.  This was a great environment.  When we hit this town last night everyone was jacked up about them Jaguars.  Jacksonville is playing well.  We came in here and got that good first drive I thought that set the tone.  Defensively I felt we just did enough to keep them off the scoreboard early.  It was a team effort.  That's the way we've been.  We seem to know what it is going to take for that particular game and we seem to respond.  I'm very proud of these guys, three division championships in a row.  It's unique.  We got a good team that plays together well and plays hard and right now we're playing pretty well.  Next week we got a game against San Diego, I know you all want to know about that.  It's an AFC game and a home game and we definitely want to win it, we're going to play to win and we'll go from there.  We're going to keep our mantra one game at a time, we're going to do everything we can to beat San Diego and we're not going to look ahead."

(on the third down at the end on whether to run the ball and run the clock or throw the ball)  "We've got who I think is the best player in the NFL.  We wanted to give him a chance to win the game.  We decided to do that and he made a play, him and Dallas (Clark) hooked up and the game was over.  So rather than take it down with no timeouts.  You'd still like to think you would hold them on defense but you have a chance to win it right there and that's what we decided to do."
