Transcripts- Preseason at Patriots Halftime

* * 



Head Coach John Harbaugh

On his first impressions of the game: "The thing that was good to see, as we talked about coming into this game, was we were being physical. That's what our guys are doing. We were aggressive. We played like we like to say, 'Like Ravens.' There are some things we could clean up, but overall I like how hard we played."

On QB Kyle Boller's performance: "Kyle did some really good things. There are a couple plays he wants back, but I felt he did a good job moving our offense."

Defensive Coordinator Rex Ryan

On CB Fabian Washington:"I guess Fabian Washington is worth that fourth-rounder Ozzie [Newsome] gave up. And, how about the way Justin Bannan was throwing guys around? It was good to see both of these players show what they can do."

On giving up a couple plays: "In the first half, we let the quarterback [Matt Gutierrez] make the one run, and [Kevin] Faulk got us. That was my fault. We should have recognized that he was in there and called something else."

Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron

On scoring points: "We did move and keep the ball, but we want to score touchdowns at the end of drives, not field goals."

On QB Kyle Boller's play:"Kyle did okay. He was in control and was sharp at times. He'll be fine, and he knows better than anyone that we have to protect the ball."

QB Kyle Boller

On how he feels he played: "I don't want to turn the ball over. That is the most important thing. I think we had some good plays and a few solid drives, but we have to continue to work on not turning the ball over."

On striking fast and establishing a rhythm: "We drove down the field right away and put some points on the board that first drive. The offensive line did an unbelievable job. I don't think I was touched one time. The main thing we wanted to do early was not turn it over and put points on the board."

RS/WR Yamon Figurs

On his long punt and kickoff returns: "The guys were blocking really well, and they opened up some big holes. They opened them up, but they also closed pretty fast. I was just glad that I could hit them fast enough to get through. Making plays like that will really help our offense this year. I'm glad we were able to put them in good positions to score tonight."

CB Fabian Washington

On his overall performance and Baltimore debut: "It just feels good to finally play football again. We haven't played since January, so it was good being out here. You only get one chance to make a first impression, so I felt like had to go out and make an impact for my first time as a Raven."

On what he saw on his two INTs: "On the second one, the quarterback just telegraphed it. He was looking at me the whole way, and I broke on the ball when he let it go. The first one was underthrown by the quarterback. He threw it behind the receiver and I was right there."

On holding the Patriots to 85 net yards in the first half: "That's great. Anytime you can do something like that, you have one heck of a defense. I know when we watch film on Friday, we'll see a lot we can improve on. But right now it feels good."
