WINNIPEG SAFETY JOVON JOHNSON, ON WHICH PLAY WAS THE KILLER:
"Can't point the finger at no-one. We win and lose as a team."
BLUE BOMBERS DEFENSIVE LINEMAN BRYANT TURNER:
"This loss right here is the worst one I've felt for sure."
WINNIPEG HEAD COACH TIM BURKE, ON HOW THINGS CHANGE:
"We did everything we could to lose it at the end."
BURKE ON WHAT HAPPENED TO QB MAX HALL LATE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER THAT CAUSED HIM NOT TO RETURN:
"I really don't know. I don't even know what he's hurt...He was grabbing his ribs when he came off the field, so I'm going to assume it's somewhere in there."
BURKE ON WHETHER 'FOOTBALL GODS' EXIST AND ARE CONSPIRING AGAINST HIS TEAM:
"It would seem so right now. But, you know, the gods in Greek Mythology were always changing their mind about who they're going to help, so I'm hoping they change their mind."
BURKE ON LETTING THE WIN SLIP AWAY:
"We definitely had a chance to win this game and we did everything we could to lose it at the end."
BURKE ON BOMBERS DB DEMOND WASHINGTON DEFLECTING A THIRD AND 10 MIKE REILLY PASS INTO THE ARMS OF EDMONTON RECEIVER FRED STAMPS IN THE GAME'S FINAL MINUTE, SETTING UP THE GAME-WINNING FIELD GOAL:
"A veteran guy would have knocked the ball down and we would have won. But it's a young guy, he tried to make a pick and it bounced into their hands. That's what happens when you have a young team -- they sometimes make young guy mistakes."
CORNERBACK BRANDON STEWART ON WHETHER THE BLUE SHOULD HAVE WON:
"We had a chance to seal the game multiple times on defence and we couldn't close. It's on us."
QB JUSTIN GOLTZ ON COMING IN FOR OVERTIME:
"You have to make the most of it. That's the job of a backup."
