Despite some of the injuries to the wide receiver corps, do you feel like the offense is progressing the way it should be?
“We don’t have a choice. That’s the name of this game…If some guy goes down, the next guy has to be up and ready to go. We feel like we have the depth over there in receiver, but a lot of guys haven’t played much, but (we) definitely (have) guys that have the ability to play.”
Today seemed like a good day for the offense with Marques Colston getting back to the mix?
“It was good to see Marques out, we were making plays then we did the two minute. When we don’t win that drill, it leaves a sour taste in your mouth. We have to do whatever it takes to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”
Are you saying you should have had that ball on fourth down?
“Yes, I expect to make those plays and anytime I don’t I’m upset. I’m upset right now.”
There is a rule that mandates you to wear thigh pads and knee pads, are you getting used to that, is that something you’ve always done?
“I’ve never worn leg pads in the NFL at least since ’05 or ’06. It’s just a matter of putting them in there and wearing them. I don’t know if it’s going to feel any different. We all had to wear knee pads in college and high school so whatever (they require us to do we will do).”
Are you still a little ticked off from the 2 minute drill?
“Yes, anytime we don’t win a drill, it’s the competitive nature. You don’t want to go out and lose a drill so when we don’t win that drill…I take it seriously. “
It’s always competitive between offense and defense, have you seen it cranked up this camp?
“Yes, that’s how it should be. (The) Defense has a new scheme and they’re showing us a lot of different looks and when they beat up on us, that’s only going to make us better and when we beat up on them, we hope (for) that in return. It makes them better. That’s what camp is for.”
