I'm really proud of the way our guys hung in there.

We were really on our game.

We came to play.

We brought our A-game.

We took them out of their game.

We knew what we had to do and went out and did it.

We proved we're the better team.

We're tickled to death.

We're glad to get out of here with the "W".

They gave us a big scare.  (Said when a team narrowly escapes a major upset)

It's tough to win in a hostile environment.

We're happy we could pull this one out at the end.

We feel fortunate.

We knew this would be no cakewalk.

It wasn't pretty but we'll take it.

We managed to eke out a win.

The important thing is that we won.

A win is a win.

This was a good win for us.

This was a confidence booster.

We're going to use this win as a building block.

We'll use this win as a stepping stone to the next level.

We're not going to rest on our laurels.

This win was no fluke.

We finally got the monkey off our backs.

Everyone counted us out before the season started.

This was a signature win for this program.

It was a hard-fought contest.

It was a total team effort.

I'm happy I could make a contribution.

I was just doing my job.

It was a workman-like effort.

We made our own breaks.

We played our hearts out.

We really took it to 'em.

We snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat.

This team has finally learned how to win.

We weren't going to just lie down.

We weren't going to just roll over.

We knew we had to defend our home turf.

This team always seems to find a way to win.

This team has overcome a lot of adversity.

This team shows a lot of character.

This team shows a lot of poise.

This team shows a lot of pride.

This team shows a lot of resiliency.

This team shows a lot of heart.

We're going to savor this victory.

This team has served notice.

We made a statement here today.

We sent a message here today.

This win is for all the fans.

Our fans were the 12th man today.

We feed off the energy of our fans.

This MVP award belongs to the whole team.

We've got the greatest fans in the world.

I want to thank my Lord and Savior.

It hasn't sunk in yet.

I'm in a state of shock.

I'm speechless.

We shocked the world.

You dream about this as a kid.

It feels great to be world champions.  (It is very common for players to anoint themselves 'world champions' even if they compete in a league with only North American or American teams)

This is a dream come true.

This is the greatest feeling in the world.

After blowing-out the other team

They're tough competitors.

They're a class act.

Give them a lot of credit.

We beat a very good team today.
