Lovie Smith on kicker Kyle Brindza winning the kicking job:

"It’s one game, but you can say that about every rookie that plays. There has to be a first time. You said rare and when you talk about his ability, I feel a lot better going with someone that has something that’s rare, that very few people have. I think it’s safe to say he has a strong leg that probably is rare. We feel good about that. It’s more than just having a strong leg. You have to have some accuracy too. It’s good to get in those situations and hit both of those field goals and for kickoffs too. That’s what we are looking for at the position. I still think we can be in a better position based on what we’ve gone through trying to get that position right. He’s an emergency punter also. He brings a lot of things to the table.”

Lovie Smith on Da'Quan Bowers:

"When you bring somebody back, you are saying something. For us, we had injuries at a lot of positions – I know Akeem Spence was out early on – we have a little bit of depth at that position. It’s not like he played bad or played himself out of a position. Sometimes with veterans, what we try to do is make decisions early and let them know to give them the best opportunity to get on with someone else. If they don’t I always talk about having options and we love for many options to be out there as possible for us.”
