HoustonTexans vs. IndianapolisColts Post-Game Quotes
HEAD COACH GARY KUBIAK (general on game) Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts Post-Game Quotes
"You come into a hostile environment, and this stadium is as hostile as it gets, and you can't have things happen to you that look like nervous things. The second play of the game we had a bust as a football team, which there is no excuse for since we prepared for (it) over and over again. So that just shows to me there are nerves there and we haven't figured out a way to settle down. This is a great football team here, and if you do anything to help them, you have absolutely no chance. And we definitely helped them today."
HEAD COACH GARY KUBIAK (on Peyton Manning's play against Houston defense) Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts Post-Game Quotes
"He's a pretty good player, and he's had a lot of success against a lot of people. But I thought our defense stood up in some tough situations early in the ballgame and battled, but he'll pick you apart and he proceeded to do that, but he does that every week."
HEAD COACH GARY KUBIAK (on Houston's offensive live performance) Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts Post-Game Quotes
"I thought we started to run the ball better. I'm very encouraged by Ron Dayne and Samkon Gado. We've got a long way to go, but they're going to help us get better as a football team."
HEAD COACH GARY KUBIAK (on QB David Carr) HoustonTexans vs. IndianapolisColts Post-Game Quotes
"I told him last night at the hotel, I said, 'David, you're not going to have a lot of time to throw the ball, there's going to be people in your face, people stripping at the ball, but we don't use that as an excuse. We need to step up and play as well as we can play.' But I thought David Carr battled and did some good things in the second half, but he's got to play for four quarters, and I'm going be on his butt until he becomes a four-quarter player. And when he does that, our football team is going to get better. When you're a quarterback and you think you can walk into this dome on Sunday and think you're going be able to sit back there and pat the ball, you're in the wrong ballpark."
QB-DAVID CARR (early game plays) Post-game at IndianapolisColts:
"Coming up here is a chore. This team feeds off the energy of the crowd and the noise level for their defense. It is almost a perfect fit for them. It is tough for our offensive line to hear the counts."
