Head Coach Hue Jackson

ON THE GAME
Obviously we didn't play very well on either side of the ball or on special teams, and when you play against the best team in football, that is what is going to happen. You can't turn the ball over five times, commit 11 penalties and think you have a chance to win a game."

ON THE PACKERS
I think they are great; they are the best team in football. They are 13-0. They earned it today. They beat us as well as anyone has beaten us all year. The quarterback is a really good player. I know that people talk about their defense, but they did just what they have been doing, taking the ball away from offensive football teams. Mike (McCarthy) does a great job and I think they have another shot at this thing.

QB Carson Palmer

ON THE PACKERS DEFENSE
They outplayed us for sure. They are a very opportunistic defense, they go after a lot of balls. They create a lot of pressure, and they are really built around their offense. Their offense is designed to score a lot of points and their defense is designed to make turnovers just like they did today. I did not play well enough to give us a chance to win.

It's hard getting anything going on offense when you're making progress and then you get some penalties to hurt us. Turnovers don't help either, but just like last week we just came out and got beat.

DT Richard Seymour

ON THE GAME
Give the Packers a lot of credit. They played well and when it rains it pours. I just never thought we executed like we should have. We couldn't get off the field on third down. They kept drives alive. We had too many penalties. We just played bad football, no excuses about it. It's one thing when you feel like you play well and you were in the game, but it's disappointing when I don't even feel like we played well collectively.

ON THE REST OF THE SEASON
You just try to take it one week at a time and each game is its own individual game. Obviously I wish we played better but I think for us, we've just got to go back to the drawing board and figure out what we need to do. Let the coaches coach and the players play.

P Shane Lechler

ON THE PACKERS
They're good across the board. They make a lot of plays. Everybody knows it. This streak wouldn't be alive if they weren't firing on all cylinders. Aaron (Rodgers) is playing good and their defense seems to make big plays when they need to
