Quotable

"You don't get chances like that every day, so I wanted to make the most of it. We knew that Leaf tended to make that throw." - Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, who intercepted a short pass by the Cowboys' Ryan Leaf and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown on the last play of the first half

"It's obviously a compliment anytime you're mentioned in the same sentence with Joe Montana. I idolized the guy and saw him do so many great things for the 49ers. As far as coming back and winning games late, it was something that he was known for, and to be mentioned among that is a great honor."

- 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia
