Brady picked them apart. We were taking 3-yard passes and turning them into 15, 20 yards gains.
It might be great if you won. It's not the greatest game if you lost, ... You can say whatever you want. It's not going to be one of my greatest games because we lost.
Brady is performing like the leader we need him to be and I look for him to continue to progress in upcoming games.
Part of this week will be devoted to securing the next generation of playmakers and big-play stoppers for Notre Dame. The staff is going to hit the road to recruit Wednesday night, ... Thursday and Friday will be our last two days of in-season recruiting.
We try not to tip our hand as to what it's gonna be. Sometimes you want to bait 'em, let them think it it's gonna be one thing, then give them something else.
Each situation has to be handled as a unique situation. But I think if you want your guys to stay in school and graduate and one of these opportunities comes along, you have to be willing to work with him, you have to give a little.
I think, psychologically for the players, this game against Willingham will be a good thing to have behind them and move on to the next game,
This one feels really good, mainly because everyone had this game pegged as an offensive team versus an offensive team. I told our guys that this might be a 10-9 game.
I think that Jeff's a very dependable, reliable receiver with great hands and good ball skills,

Would Romeo and I like to be head coaches Sure. Sure we'd like to be head coaches. But you know, those jobs have come and gone.
Pete and I, we go back a ways, back to when he was a defensive coordinator with the Jets, then the head coach with the Jets, then the head coach of the Patriots,
The most impressive thing is that they're on pace to be the first group in history to have a 3,000-yard passer, with two 1,000-yard rushers and two 1,000-yard receivers. That's kind of scary.

That was THE play. What I said to the official on the field is I hope your guy upstairs was right because that changed the whole complexion of the game.
With the game on the line, ... I would hope my running back would take such a risk. What's the worst that happens There's a penalty, and you get to kick a field goal. Is it illegal Yes. Is it a heads-up play Yes.
The game is over, I'll move on and I hope they move on. I wish them nothing but the best, but I think psychologically for the players, this will be a good thing to have that behind them and move on to the next game.
It's almost like Montana was willing him to beat that defender and take it to the house,
I don't get into, 'This is our house,' and all those commercials and everything like that. But you need to develop a temperament that you're not going to lose when you're playing at home, ... I don't think that temperament exists at this point.
When it goes from a scope to cut, there's obviously a bigger problem. I don't know the exact injury, all I know is he won't be back this year.
Notre Dame is 24-3 since 1984 coming off an open week, including nine wins over ranked teams, two of them No. 1. Guess what the Irish have this Saturday in advance of hosting USC We have 'bye' on the schedule next week, ... And I think we can beat them.
There's a lot of people I'd say maybe get jealous.
