"First I'd like to give the Giants a lot of credit. They certainly made the plays when they needed to. That is a very good football team. They put a lot of pressure on us. We just came up a little bit short. I think we had a couple of missed opportunities out there. Every guy in the locker room wishes he could have done a little bit more and maybe the outcome would have been a little bit different. It was a very hard-fought game and we fought until the end. I'm very proud of that. I'd say we just came up a little short."
(On if he thought there was enough time at the end)
"We got to the 50 and just ran out of time. We threw a Hail Mary at the end. I'm not sure how close we were to catching it. Obviously I wish we could have done a little bit more."
(On the pass intended for Wes Welker)
"Wes was running down the field and it looked like they messed up the coverage a little bit and I threw it to him. He went up to try to make it, as he always does, and we just couldn't connect. He's a hell of a player. I'll keep throwing him the ball for as long as I possibly can. He's a phenomenal player and teammate and I love that guy."
(If this loss feels similar to four years ago)
"We just didn't make enough plays. In the first quarter, we didn't have the ball a ton. The second quarter, we played a little bit better. Third quarter, we started well and it came down to the fourth quarter. [The Giants] made some plays there at the end. We went out there to win the game. We just didn't make enough plays."
