ChicagoBears.com takes you inside the locker room with quotes from Bears players following Sunday's loss against the Packers at Soldier Field.

Alshon Jeffery, WR
*On where they can improve: *
"Just clean up on our details and assignments. It's something we can build from and learn from. It's nothing they did. Hat's off to their defense, they're a great defense. But we beat ourselves out there."

*On moving forward: *
"Everything that happened at the goal line and the interception, I still feel like we beat ourselves. I mean, it's nothing they did. I feel great about this team; I love this team."

Kyle Long, RT
*On the offense's performance: *
"I thought we did a lot of good things. But as we all can echo, we didn't play well enough in this football game in its entirety. There was a lot of stuff left on the table. Individually and collectively, I think we played our butts off. But at the same time, against a football team like the Green Bay Packers, you have to go out and leave nothing on the table."

*On playing right tackle: *
"They've done a good job since letting me know it was going to be the decision in the past week or so. It's a lot different in the game. But we practice at a tempo, and the defense practices at a tempo to prepare our offensive line. I have my struggles individually; I did some things I can keep my head up. I thought I played pretty hard. I'm going to move on and make progress next week."

*On picking up the new position: *
"You get so comfortable at one position, and then you get moved. But that's part of the deal - football. Especially on the offensive line; I have a great group of guys around me. Just have to continue to push forward and compete. Not everything is going to be rainbows. You have to continue to push and compete."

Sherrick McManis, CB
*On Cobb's touchdown catch: *
"I felt like I was doing solid; just really focused on my job. That one play was definitely a technique error on my part. And they executed well on offense, and got the touchdown."

*On covering Randall Cobb: *
"Honestly, coming into this game, I tried to keep it very simple. Mentally for myself. Just focusing on mixing it up on him - being physical at times and then laying back. Just focusing on my job."

*On Aaron Rodgers: *
"He's a pro. He's been in these situations many times. He executes at the right time and gets the job done. He had a good game, and I feel like we can definitely execute better next time. Just get past this, learn what we did wrong, and focus on the next game."

Jermon Bushrod, LT
*On Jay Cutler's performance: *
"I think he did a tremendous job of managing our game, getting us in the right position, making the right calls, and protecting the ball for us. When it was his time to get back there and throw the ball, he did. He did a good job. We're all trying to get better. I think we have to build off this. I've been in this locker room, and we've had losses, and I just don't want to talk to anyone. But we fought and competed, and that's all we can ask for."
