QB TAYSOM HILL
(On how well they anticipated what Seattle's approach would be…)
"Seattle, they are a really good team. I think they came out and did what we were expecting. I think we had a good plan for them in all three phases and we executed."
(On if he was expecting to be more involved in the offense…)
"No, no I wasn't. Now there's only two of us, so we have to be a little conservative. So, we will see what happens moving forward."
*(On how he evaluated their defense today…) *"Awesome. They created turnovers, they made big plays, they scored on defense. Anytime you can do that, it's such a big advantage for us as a team. Those guys had a ton of energy and everybody fed off of it."
(On how they fared without their leader Brees…)
"I think everyone felt like they needed to elevate their game. I think that's what you saw today. It didn't fall on one person. Teddy or I didn't feel the burden of just one thing because Drew was gone and I felt like everybody elevated. Everyone said 'man, hey we are going to pick up our game so you don't feel all of the pressure' and I think that's what we saw tonight."
(On if there was any time this week that he could tell that Bridgewater was ready to go…)
"Look, I think that's the name of the game when you're a backup quarterback. You have to be ready to go week in and week out whether you are the guy or not. I don't think anyone is surprised that Teddy went out and played the way that he did today. He prepared the same way this week that he did last week, he just happened to get a lot more reps."
