Graham Gano Postgame Interview vs Lions

On the decision to go for two at the end: “You have to talk to Ron (Rivera), I’m not sure about that. Obviously, I’ve missed kicks before. I felt fine, just missed those and it’s a tough game.”

On any indication if the decision was because of his performance: “I’ve been hitting the ball well, obviously it’s a tough one to swallow. You never want to have a game like this, but it happens. I’ll go out there and work hard this week and bounce back. I’m still fully confident, I’ve been having a great year. It’s not really going to change a lot, just keep kicking.”

On the two missed kicks today: “Nothing really to take you through, just a missed kick.”

On if he changed anything between the two: “No, I’ve been doing this for 10 years, plus college and high school.”

On the disappointment in the team’s performance the past two games: “It’s frustrating, but we can’t worry about what the Saints are doing. We just have to control what we can control. Like I was saying, this is a tough one. It’s a game that we should have won and I’m sure that everybody feels the same way. It’s how you bounce back, I’m sure we’ve got a lot of great guys on the team. We have a ton of talent on the team, I’m sure we’ll be fine.”

On what he saw on the attempted two-point conversion: “Got to make the play. I’ve got to make that play. That’s what it comes down to. Jarius did a good job with kind of improvising, I just got to make the play.”
