BOMBERS PLACE-KICKER SANDRO DEANGELIS ON WHAT WENT WRONG ON A BOTCHED 26-YARD FIELD GOAL EFFORT:

"The ball fell off the tee. It was kind of one of those deals. I could have tried kicking it, but it was probably going to be ugly. It's unfortunate. We work really, really hard at our craft, but it really is a game of inches sometimes."

BOMBERS DB JOVON JOHNSON ON THE UGLY POETRY OF THE ALMOST-CERTAIN TD PASS MAX HALL THREW TO CLARENCE DENMARK IN THE SECOND QUARTER, ONLY TO HAVE IT DEFLECT OFF THE UPRIGHT:

"That sums up what we've been going through. A guy's wide open and we throw it and it hits the goalpost. That's just our luck."

BOMBERS HEAD COACH TIM BURKE ON A GAME FULL OF MISSED OPPORTUNITIES:

"We had a great chance to win that game. In the first half we dug ourselves a hole. We had too many mistakes. We had a number of dropped passes... We had some of the weirdest things happen. We hit the goalpost with a pass to a receiver who was wide open. We dropped a touchdown pass. We had the ball fall off the tee as we tried to kick a field goal."

BOMBERS OFFENSIVE LINEMAN GLENN JANUARY ON THE FIGHT HIS TEAM SHOWED AFTER BEING DOWN 23-3 AT HALFTIME:

"We've got a lot of fight in this locker-room. You put a young team in this situation with essentially no playoff hopes... they're apt to shut it down or slack off during the week."

BOMBERS TB WILL FORD, WHO SCORED HIS FOURTH TD IN THE LAST THREE GAMES:

"I love the game of football, but when we lose like this, I could have a thousands yards and still be upset."

DT BRYANT TURNER ON WHETHER HIS TEAM WILL ROLL OVER AND DIE NOW THAT THEY'VE BEEN ELIMINATED FROM PLAYOFF CONTENTION:

"I don't think it will. Honestly, I think we have the type of team that's going to work hard no matter what. I'm sure there's going to be changes made and all the players know that. I think everyone's just trying to be professional and take it to the end, basically."

BOMBERS SB TERRENCE EDWARDS ON WHETHER THERE IS SOMETHING SYSTEMICALLY WRONG WITH THIS BOMBERS FRANCHISE:

"I don't know. I can't say why it keeps happening. But it's got to be corrected at some point, whenever that is. And I think the powers that be will get together and I think (CEO) Wade (Miller) will be doing some good things to get this turned around."
