Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

What a game! I'm proud of our guys for playing hard! Our offense was smooth and our defense was stifling. I like that both of the players of the game were St. Paul players. I couldn't be happier with our effort and our result.

I love playing at home in front of our great fans. Big ups to Best Buy and ADIDAS for all of their support. It's great to have sponsors that are invested in our franchise's success.

Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the toughest thing to prepare for this week?

This week we play a double tough San Antonio team. Three weeks in a row they've had over 400 yards in offense and put up at least 30 points. I believe our defense will stifle that. They are also giving up over 20 points a game. I believe if our team plays like they did today, that we have a good chance of being the first team to knock of a strong San Antonio team.

S10 WEEK 5

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

This game was probably the most satisfying of our victories so far this season. We got out to a good lead in the first half and controlled things from there without ever really feeling threatened. People will look at the total yards and completed pass stats and try to argue that we were fortunate but what makes the difference in these games is efficiency. Our 3rd down conversion and pass completion rates were much better than New Jersey's and we converted our red zone opportunities. Of course the biggest difference came on the ground. Tank Mixon gets a huge amount of attention, deservedly so, but the partnership he has with Johnson is what makes this team so dangerous. Christopher had a great game out there and got his reward with a touchdown.

I know GM Kirk will go on about how New Jersey was the better team because he can't accept that his team was well beaten. Sure, they gave up a lot of penalty yards but that's what happens when you try to build up every game as a grudge match. He wound his players up to a point where an explosion was inevitable. I'm very proud of the professionalism my players showed despite the dirty play of the Dragons and we got our reward for that.

This week we visit Tulsa at the start of a very important period of the season. We've set ourselves up well against the division rivals and we need to keep that momentum going through this next run. Tulsa haven't had the best of times recently and they're coming off the back of a pretty painful loss. People will be expecting us to go in and roll them over but there really are no easy games in this league. They'll be hurting after that loss and will be keen to bounce back. It will be our job to make sure they don't do that against us. The difficulty will be in stopping their passing game. We did very well at doing just that against the Dragons but Tulsa have lads capable of making those home run plays so we'll need to make sure we cover that properly. If we can get our run game going, get out to an early lead and put pressure on their line on defence then I think we'll be able to come away with an important win.

When you shut out a team, there isn't a whole lot that has gone wrong! I think this performance is a testament to how well rounded a team we have become. Our running game continues to kill it, and passing game continues to grow into a more potent weapon for us. I have to give a shout out to Keith Marshall, the kid came in for one of our key defensive players and put in DPOG performance! We have depth in Miami now, and there aren't any slouches down in Boca Raton either! We're a contender in this division, mark my words, we're 2nd in points given throughout the entire league, and our only losses have come in overtime. Orlando have got off to a great start, but we're more than up for the challenge of chasing them down!

2. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the toughest thing to prepare for this week?

We have a tough match up this week against a Michigan team that hasn't quite matched the performance levels of last season but are still more than talented enough to hang with anyone in this division. I feel we are evenly matched, despite how well they did last season, this season, I think we are equals, and I am sure that will be shown on the pitch this week. We'll have some interesting battles, I believe us getting to Hill will be key to victory, but they haven't been given up sacks this year freely. That will be a key battle, as well as how well they cope with our o-line and running game, I'm not sure they can handle, but we'll see, we'll see, it is going to be an interesting battle! We don't want to be .500 after it though.

Any time you pitch a shut out you tip your hat to the defense. They've been elite all year and it's great to see that unit firing on all cylinders. We had a bit of a rough go in the passing game with our efficiency but we did manage to move the ball through the air a bit early and then a big running game iced it on the ground. More importantly, we didn't turn it over. We consistently do that we're in good shape.

I think GM Franchise did a really good job summarizing Alabama in his press conference. We've got an elite defense and so a big game from our front seven gives us a chance. I think Stephen Shelley could really have a coming out party too.

and we pulled Merv to get Hillard some reps, it could have been worse. Merv is playing every bit like a $24 million player and Mario Cavanaugh looks to be ready to breakout. Our run game and 3rd down conversions weren't particularly appealing, 2.7 yards per carry for Crawford and 1/7 on 3rd down....but it's tough to nitpick on what was overall a fantastic win though Coach, great job to you and your staff.

Mariota and the Bruins this week, I think with how our offense is rolling we should feel confident against anybody, but how do you think we matchup defensively again Kansas City?

-That's what I call a good ol' ass cuttin' right there.  Our guys came out and balled all game.  We had a tough run defense, put the pressure on the QB, and our offense was humming right a long.  We had quite a few fumbles, which we will have to work on, but overall it was a great game.  Unfortunately O'Rourke got hurt again, but Dak did an amazing job of stepping in and leading this team to victory and the HIFL Week 5 Offensive Player of the Week.

2. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the toughest thing to prepare for this week?

-We have Atlanta and though their record isn't too pretty, we will not take them lightly.  They have the weapons on offense and a pretty good defense to win at any given time.  We have to go out and execute like we did this week on both offense and defense and limit the turnovers.  If we can do that I believe we will be just fine.

I set that tone in the press conference last week, so I'll take responsibility for this loss. Despite the fact that we are 2-3, we've shown that we can hang with the best teams in the division. A tweak here or there and we'll turn these close losses into wins. The next phase of the season is vital, though. We need to win most of these non-division games to take advantage of our gentle schedule and put ourselves in a strong position when we start playing the NE again. Any concerns about Tombstone?

Well, what was a close game during the first half ended up going out of control as Cleveland did the smart thing by running the ball and letting Elliott grind it out alongside making the stops they needed to make. That said, I'm pleased that we only kept things to one turnover only rather than multiple ones and we have to continue to keep the ball secure to give ourselves a shot at competing during games but we're going to take this whooping we took and just move forward. We've got some kinks to figure out on both sides of the ball and having gotten through some very tough conference games, we hope to take the good and the bad from them, learn and take them into the next couple of weeks to make some wins happen. Credit is very much due to Coach Jason Blitzer for dealing with his starting QB being injured and doing the work he's done to keep Cleveland a contender, even without a GM helping them out and with an ownership team that's the equivalent of one of the worst things to ever happen to this league.

2. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the toughest thing to prepare for this week?

We've got Portland, who's another expansion team and who's tasted big time victory with their upset over the defending champions. They're well-rounded on all ends and that makes it tough to specify one particular thing to prepare against them but what I know we can do is just continue to prepare keep studying tape, to be sharp in practices and for this team to just keep playing more and more alongside one another, getting used to the guys next to them and to continue growing through whatever pains we experience throughout this season. Nobody likes losing and we definitely aim for victory this week and any week we go out into the field, but we also know we've got work to do on all ends in order to be a successful team for years to come.

We are on the right track thatís for sure. It wasnít pretty but we got out with a win which is what we aimed to do. It might not have been so close if Pruitt hadnít of had that scare but it was good to see Fletcher step up. Heís had some big moments when heís had more then mop up duty and held his own.

We have lost more to injury though so hopefully some of our questionables are able to go. We do luck out with missing Smoak though.

Yeah we are playing DC. For some reason I was thinking Alabama probably because they are playing Las Vegas and I was just there on a business trip last week before our game. That's my bad. Speaking of games what happened in the fourth quarter this week? They destroyed us at the end of the game.
