JOVON JOHNSON ON AN IFFY PASS INTERENCE CALL IN THE FOURTH QUARTER AGAINST HIM:
"I have no comment about it. I don't feel good about it, but I'm not going to talk about it, either."
JOHNSON, OFFERING UP HIS OVERALL THOUGHTS:
"We got down in the first half by turning the ball over. But we bounced back and put ourselves in position to win and that's all you can ask for. We shocked a lot of people... I don't think nobody even expected us to be in the game after being down 14-0. We know we can beat that team, it's just a matter of us limiting our mistakes and hopefully we get some breaks next time."
CHRIS MATTHEWS ON THE THIRD-QUARTER RALLY THAT BROUGHT THE BOMBERS BACK INTO THE GAME.
"We have a tough team as you can see. Our defence did a great job. It's about execution. If we execute more this team will start winning a lot more games."
JADE ETIENNE ON PLAYING WELL IN HIS FIRST CFL START:
"It was good. It's out of the way now so I've just got to come out and focus on other things like the gameplan and not my first start. It was definitely nice to get out there and play, though. I felt more comfortable than any other times I got out there last year or the year before."
MIDDLE LINEBACKER HENOC MUAMBA:
"We did a lot of things good in that game. But you have to play complete games if you want to win football games in this league."
MUAMBA, ON THE THIRD QUARTER:
"Again, that's all about consistency now. We're trying to repeat what we did in the third quarter, from the first quarter to the fourth. If we can do that, I think we have a chance to win a lot of football games this season."
BUCK PIERCE ON THE THIRD-QUARTER RALLY THAT ULTIMATELY FELL SHORT:
"I like to come out of the locker-room really fired up like that. That shows a lot. But we really killed ourselves in the first half. We had three big turnovers in the first half that spotted them 14 points real early. We were battling from behind. We came out and put up a lot of points early in the third but we've got to continue to do that."
BOMBERS QB BUCK PIERCE ON LOOKING AHEAD TO THE REMATCH WITH THE ALOUETTES NEXT WEEK IN MONTREAL:
"We'll be better, I'll be better and we'll move on."
BOMBERS HEAD COACH TIM BURKE DIDN'T TAKE EXCEPTION WITH A PASS INTERFERENCE CALL LATE IN THE GAME ON JOVON JOHNSON:
"The one on Jovon was a legit call. I was standing right there and he grabbed him on the wrist."
