"If something went wrong at the backup quarterback position, it's my fault," Thompson told USA Today on Friday. "It's not somebody else's fault. It's not even one of those quarterbacks' fault. I just didn't get it worked out right."
"I had a pretty good comfort level with him," Thompson said. "I was in Seattle when we drafted him out there. I know the kind of person and I know his football intelligence. I know he's got good mobility, has confidence as a player."
"I think it's important to be a winner, but you'd have to examine each set of circumstances, and sometimes the odds are stacked against you pretty good," Thompson said.
