Tim Dobbins: It's is pretty much the same.
ML: What is the impact of Cooper's return?
LB Tim Dobbins
ML: How do you play the first half against the New England Patriots like you played the second halves against the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins?
TD: Pretty much just playing our rules and playing whatever they give us. We're going to prepare just like it's a playoff game for us, because the last couple of years they've beaten us. We do at least want to try to win as best as possible.
ML: I know you never want to call a game a must-win in Week 6, but next week's contest is going to be pretty close to exactly that. How important is this game to getting your season back on track?
TD: It's very important. It'll be good to end up back at .500, back at 3-3. We're just going to try to prepare just like any other game and try to win.
