We had some chances to score, but overall it was a fair result. A pointon the road is always good. We havent conceded a goal for three straightgames so we can take some positives out of the game.On health:Health is a big thing. We hadJason (Hernandez) out most of the year last season and we had a lot of otherplayers battling injuries. We are a little nicked up now, but we have a solidsquad now and everyone is fighting for spots. I like the spirit on thisteam.SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES DEFENDER BOBBY BURLINGOn chance in secondhalf:I saw the play developing. Itook it on the chest and I looked around and I was surprised by how open I was.I started licking my chops and the ball started to get really big. I justpounded it. I probably should have done a better job placing it or laying itoff to Wondo (Chris Wondolowski).Looking ahead to Seattle:Seattlehas one of the best home crowds in the league. Last game at home they gotbeaten pretty badly so they are going to come out flying and try to get somegoals early. We have to go in with a good mentality and try and get anothergood result.SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES DEFENDER JASON HERNANDEZOn defending theRevs:They were coming prettydirect at times which is pretty easy for us to defend. Usually the tough timesare when the dynamic runs are coming out of the midfield. For the most partwhen it is direct it suits us pretty well. Bobby Burling did a great job in theair and Chris Leitch and Ramiro (Corrales) did a good job of tucking inbehind.On getting aresult:I think to come on a crosscountry flight and play a team with their back against the wall on a turf fieldand to come out with a 0-0 is a great performance for us. We would have likedto get three points, but I am sure they would say the same thing. To leave witha point is good enough for us right now so we are happy with it.
