CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Postgame vs. Carolina, December 20, 2015
Q: What’s the mindset on that last drive after you tied the game?
A: You’re thinking that the offense is cooking right now and you want to try to get them the ball. You’ve got three timeouts left, but they just drove the ball right down and got a field goal. We’ve definitely got to do better at that.
Q: Did it feel like any type of redemption for you personally when you were able to block the field goal?
A: No. We had the rush. You know you need somebody to move and make a play. Once again, the opportunity presented itself, you’ve just got to make it. We had plenty of opportunities with our hands on the ball and not catching them, or whatever. You’ve just got to take advantage. You know this team and what they bring to the table. So any chance you get the opportunity, you’ve just got to make it.
Q: What did you see on that field goal that allowed you to get in there and make that block?
A: I noticed that the edge was kind of tight. I had been watching Prince [Amukamara] come off a few times before and he was just right there. I said that if we lay out, we can get one, so I just laid out.
Q: How frustrating is it that the defense is getting back to what you were doing early in the year & unable to get off the field when you need to at the end of a game?
A: Very frustrating. You think that’s behind you, you go out there and battle back. We had some big stops coming into the third and fourth quarters. To go out there and just let them drive down the field is just mind-boggling.
