Carlos Rogers Media Session

On the Redskins' defense limiting the Ravens' offense:

"Yeah we did well, but we put ourselves in a bad situation. You can't say you totally did when you are down 14-0. That is seven points and you could have turned it into three. That made a lot of difference going down 14-0 early in the game."

On how tough it is to come back from a team making big plays early in a game:

"It is tough, but we have to think about it as we can still find a way. Try to create some turnovers, try and help the offense out. There is a lot of time in the game still. That was early when they did that and we did find a way to get some turnovers and put the offense in a better situation to score; They capitalized on one of them and we got a field goal out of the other one. We are still trying to find our way. We were down 14-0 in the Philly game and found a way to come back and win, so we still have hope."

On needing to get the players on the same page:

"I don't know. It has been the kind of season that I don't have the answers to those questions. I don't know what it is. You try and think you can pinpoint one thing, and then it is something else. I don't know what it is. I just hope we finish out the season no matter what it is, if we make the playoffs or not. You don't want to be labeled as a quitter and you don't want to just finish the season, because you have other teams still watching you and you don't want to put that bad film out there, no matter what the outcome of the season."

On having to win the final three games to make the playoffs:

"Last week, every team we wanted to lose, they did lose for us, but we also lost with them, so that wasn't good. Hopefully we can get the same thing and get guys to lose. We just still need to try and win. I think we can't worry about what other teams are doing. [We need to] try to worry about ourselves because we're not handling our business."

On the Cincinnati Bengals, the next opponent:

"We can't take any teams for granted. With the way the Bengals have been playing with the NFC East teams. New York, they brought them into over time, Philly they tied, they were a play or a drive from beating the Cowboys, so we can't take that team lightly."
