"It's exciting. It should be."

"The weather was great. If it was as hot this morning as it was yesterday morning we would have probably had four or five people carried off the field."

"The conditioning of the team is really good, and they really worked hard out there."

"I will when we put the pads. The best thing about him is his number."

"Keeping his eyes down the field... continuing to protect the ball when he throws it down the field."

"Right now it's Daniel, but Justin Burke is going to get a lot of reps. He's a smart youngster, and he's going to get a lot of reps."

"The three guys that were drafted, that's yesterday's newspaper story."

"The inside people played the last six games and they were 5-1. The end position... we'll be alright."

"I can't answer that right now. You know the story."

"He won't be back with us. It was a team reason."

"I see him around the ball, and he's good. He's having a little bit of fun out there... a little bit of fun for the first time in a while."
