Q: What's your reaction to the quarterback change?
O'Sullivan: Just disappointed.
Q: Were there any reasons given as to why there was a change?
O'Sullivan: Just what he said right there. My conversations were with Coach [Mike] Martz and Coach [Ted] Tollner. From that point, [I'm] just going to try to get into my role and be ready when and if the time comes.
Q: It must be frustrating to have a long NFL journey, then start eight games and have the spot taken out from under you?
O'Sullivan: Just that, disappointed. But understanding that the season's not over, my job might not be the same, and I'm going to prepare just like I'm going out there to play.
Q: Did you notice – did Mike [Martz] change the way he called the game once Shaun Hill got in?
O'Sullivan: I didn't. I don't know if I evaluated it like that.
Q: Would you look at the quarterback position as still fluid – that there's a chance that you might get back in and play this season?
O'Sullivan: I think every backup in the league thinks like that. You have to be ready to take advantage of an opportunity if it comes.
O'Sullivan: A backup again
