Ladell Betts Post-Game: Redskins-Eagles

On having back-to-back career rushing yards games:

"Well stats are good, but you play this game to win. We did some really good things offensively, and we played physical on both sides of the ball. As an offense we have to convert those field goals into touchdowns."

On 1st and goal from the 3 yard line:

"You have to punch that in for the touchdown; the offensive line did a great job of opening holes. You have to give the Eagle defense credit, for stopping us, but we should have taken advantage in that situation."

On the way he started running the ball after signing the new contract:

"My offensive line did a tremendous job; my receivers down field blocking played a vital role in my running success today. All I had to do as a runner was read my blocks, and find a running lane."

On Jason's poise after throwing those two early interceptions:

"He showed a lot of composure, and as our offensive leader his poise resonated through to us, and allowed us to not hang our heads. We came out in the second half and battled, it just wasn't enough to get the win. This team has a lot of heart, and refuses to give up."

On what are you learning about yourself as a running back:

"All the things that I'm doing now are things I always knew I was capable of, it just was a matter of working hard, staying focused, and being ready when the opportunity presented itself."

On the 33-carry performance:

"I had no idea that I had that many carries. As a competitive athlete, you always want the ball. These are the situation you want a player, you want to be looked at by your peers and coaching staff as someone that can make things happen. I just give credit to my offensive line and coaching staff for allowing me this opportunity to make some plays."
