“我认为他们俩说的是，我们有纪律，把它一个游戏的时间，感觉就像我们可以赢得时间每场比赛之一，如果你有足够的时间，也许你去不败。我们不俯瞰任何人，我们永远看起来比游戏是下一个远一点有没有更大的游戏本赛季的又不是对周一足球之夜。 Atlanta Falcons at home, in the dome, our first divisional game – all of those things. The game couldn't be any bigger."
What does losing Heath Evans mean to the team?
Would losing this game feel like you're letting the Falcons back in the race?
What do you think winning this game would do for them?
"I don't want to talk about how they're going to feel if they win the game. I definitely know their mentality coming in is going to be…we're getting their best game, without a doubt. They're a very good football team. We traded shots with them last year, home and home, and the fact is I think they are a team that has really started to build something. They play with a lot of confidence; they have a great core group of players that they kind of fill around. They're playing good football. They're going to be a little salty coming off that loss at Dallas. They're a team that hasn't lost two games in a row since the new regime came in, so we'll have our work cut out for us."
They gave up a lot of plays in the passing game against the Cowboys. What did you see when you went back and looked at that tape?
"They got hit in a couple of pressures when they weren't able to get to the quarterback so they had receivers with a lot of time to work downfield and the Cowboys did a good job of taking advantage of some of those. They've been very good in the red zone of holding teams to field goals. They're in the top ten in the league in fewest points allowed, so they're doing a good job there. Regardless of the big plays that they've allowed, in the end it's about are you giving up points or are you not and they're not, so we have to find a way to score."
Why were the Dolphins having so much success in putting pressure on you on Sunday?
“我一直把它看成，‘我怎么能帮助我的人或我怎么能有可能阻止一些人的？’ 。但我认为他们只是抓住了我们的一个好时机压好几次我必须把它交给他们;杰森泰勒仍然是这个联盟中的精英通rushers之一 - 我不认为有任何疑问关于那个。”
Did they do a better job of collapsing the pocket?
Can the Falcons gain anything by getting a guy like Aaron Stecker this week? Does that affect any of the calls you'll make?
"Did they get him? I don't think so. "Steck" obviously was with us for three years, but everything changes so much from year to year both offensively and defensively. You can just take a look at our film and look at our concepts and the stuff that we're doing. But to go out and actually defend somebody just because you know the 50 plays that they run, well you don't know when they're running them. Obviously that's why you game plan. Just like we're looking at their defense trying to get tips, they're looking at our offense trying to get tips. We all recognize that; the good teams do and that's called self-scout. You're always scouting yourself, looking to see if you're telling anything like with a poker face. So I don't think that will make a big difference."
"Yeah. If you just look over the last 10 years, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been one of those defenses that are constantly taking it away. The Philadelphia Eagles 有把它远离那些防御过一次。有几个人在那里;小马队通常大约是真的好为好。你刚才发现，无论是他们鼓吹，他们相信这个事实，他们购买到它，它的东西，我们显然是擅长今年 - 我们的头号在联赛和（猎鹰）是顶十个或前五名为好。所以我们有两个防守在这场比赛中被用来制作戏剧和采取把球抢走去“。
Is it mostly teams that bring pressure that force takeaways?
"There are a couple of things that are involved with that. The Colts don't bring a lot of pressure but they have two hellacious pass-rushers outside that get sack-fumbles and make quarterbacks throw it before they want to and have kind of a shell defense that any ball that gets tipped is typically a pick. Whereas you look at Pittsburgh and Philly and there's probably more pressure involved there that's causing some of those turnovers. But having guys in the backfield that have ball skills – defensive backs that when the ball does get close to them, they're the ones catching them, they're the ones making a play on them."
Going back to the pressure from last week, is there cause for concern that the Dolphins exploited something?
"That depends. You live by the pressure and you die by the pressure. You might make a few plays when you pressure, but you're leaving yourself open to giving up some big plays. That's the pros and cons on a pressure defense. Then again, there are teams that rely on their four-man pass rush and their ability to play zone and make you march the ball down the field and earn everything that you get and not give up any big plays and know that eventually they'll get a sack or a sack-fumble or hit a receiver or a back down the field and they'll cough it up – they just kind of have that mentality. It just depends what school of thought you're coming from. There are a lot of different philosophies and I figure with these guys, they've shown to pressure a lot at times and do some things that they haven't done in the past, but then again they also have the ability to play it straight up and feel like their pass rush can get after you too."
Do you feel like you kind of got your bad performance or lull out of the way last week in the first half?
"I hope that quarter-and-a-half of lull is all we see for a while. But realistically, you know that it only gets tougher as we go along here. We're going to get everybody's best game, especially if we can continue to win the games one at a time, you start to get a bit of a bull's eye on your chest. The fact is that you have to expect that you're going to be getting everybody's best week-in and week-out and it's not going to be easy by any means. We're going to have to fight tooth and nail and claw and scratch to get everything we can."
"Sure. The good teams look at it like that; take a win and take the negatives from that win and harp on that. Certainly you're building confidence each week with the 'W' – especially if you're winning in a lot of different ways and the way that we won on Sunday is not the way that you typically win. And I think that's just a tremendous confidence builder for a team, but then again you have to look at what put us in that position in the first half and how we can avoid that in the future."
What was your reaction to the airport scene Sunday night?
So it took you a while to get through?
"Oh, yeah. It took me an hour and a half."
Was that kind of like the Endymion parade?
"Exactly. Except we didn't have doubloons or beads to throw."
Are you going to put a jump-pass in the playbook after your dunk over the goalpost?
Have you done that before?
Sean said he thought you must have jumped off an offensive lineman.
