Smith gradually got up a 'head of steam' during his turn at the microphone, and by the end was almost shouting. A few gems:
"Throwing the ball to set up the run -- we believe in it and will continue to do it."
"Our fans will know where the football is -- it'll be in the air. Hopefully it'll give us a chance."
Regarding the quarterback spot: "Right now Drew Stanton is the guy."
And regarding Jeff Smoker: "We'll make a decision right before the season. He is trying to make a change in his life. So we will hold a carrot in front of him as long as we can. " And, "Life is not easy for him. So far he is doing well. He's a good young man, with a great heart. If he does everything right as he has been doing, he could be cleared (to play) right before the first game."
