- Opening Statement:
- "I just got done doing radio and I took a lot of questions on where we think the team is and what kind of training camp we had, what kind of preseason we had and the only answer that I have is: none of that matters. The only thing that matters is how we go forward from this point. Preseason don’t count; how we did in training camp doesn’t count; it’s how we respond during the season – 16 regular season games and on after that. Try to put preseason where it is; let’s not read too much into in and let’s go to work next week for Chicago."
- On how difficult it will be to narrow the roster down:
- "I thought particularly in the fourth quarter – when knew it would – we had some guys really fighting hard for jobs. I said before, you want to see guys win jobs. I think guys that ended up making our roster, they will have won jobs in the fourth quarter of this game. Defense played a lot of snaps; we were really shorthanded. We were putting people in a couple of positions that they don’t play, but I thought they soldiered through and did a really nice job there. We’ll have some difficult decisions."
