On Friday's Scrimmage
'The first scrimmage went pretty well. Our defense is a really downhill attacking defense that's tough to match up against especially when they put a lot of pressure on, but I think the shut them down and actually had a pretty good scrimmage especially towards the end.

On The Enthusiasm Of The First Scrimmage
'It was great. We had coach Harbaugh's going nuts and everyone was together with one common goal and that's UCLA even though we're playing against each other in the intrasquad scrimmage.'

On Friday's Scrimmage
'I think it was really competitive, which was one of the goals of this scrimmage. We're limited to just a few during camp, and I think we were as competitive as we could have been.'

On The Excitement Of The First Scrimmage
'It felt so good to finally have the go ahead to hit at least one quarterback was a really nice present during camp.'

On Friday's Scrimmage
'I think everybody was very hard to play real football, because you could tell all the intensity was a lot higher on both sides of the ball. Guys were ready to get after it. With that, we kind of lost our heads in a couple of situations that we kind of just need to tighten down our assignments a little bit.'
