LINEBACKER (AND LOOMING FREE AGENT) HENOC MUAMBA ON WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN HIS FINAL GAME IN A BOMBERS UNIFORM:
"I'm the type of guy who likes to stay focussed and control what I can control. And the only thing I could control is the four quarters I just played...I really didn't try to think too much outside of the field. To me, it would just get my focus away from what matters most and that's playing football for the team that I love and the team I play for right now."
MUAMBA ON HIS IMMEDIATE PLANS NOW THAT THE SEASON IS OVER:
"I will be here for awhile until decisions are made. But for the time being, I'm in Winnipeg."
BOMBERS DB BRANDON STEWART ON WHETHER THE END OF A LONG AND DISAPPOINTING SEASON COMES AS A RELIEF:
"No it's not a relief. A lot of us don't want it to end right now. A lot of us had expectations of leaving here in December. We're playing the cards we were dealt, we had a bad season. No sugar-coating it. We've just got to work in the off-season and see where it goes from there."
BOMBERS HEAD COACH TIM BURKE ON WHETHER HE'S FEELING ANY RELIEF NOW THAT THE SEASON IS OVER:
"Yeah, I suppose. I'd probably say that for everybody. There's a point where, 'It's over, now let's move forward.' I think there's probably that throughout the organization."
BURKE ON THE PLAY OF QB MAX HALL, WHO FINISHED 18-35 FOR 160 YARDS AND ONE TD:
"I don't think he was probably as good as he'd been the last three weeks, but it's hard when you're getting balls batted down at the line of scrimmage, number one. And then he did get tagged a couple times, which takes it's toll on you a little bit. But I thought he missed some throws."
BOMBERS OFFENSIVE LINEMAN GLENN JANUARY ON WHAT THE OFF-SEASON HOLDS:
"I know this is going to be a very different and difficult off-season for sure. If we had won the East, there'd be lots of change just because that's the way this off-season is going to shape up (with the Ottawa expansion draft). But we're committed to get this right because our fans deserve it. And quite frankly we deserve it as a team. For us to go out there continuously and play hurt and to try so hard and still have our efforts be thwarted -- it's difficult to digest."
