Quick Hits with Quincy Carter

"He tells us that every team we play is going to be a challenge, and I think all that does is give us more motivation to play for him every week," said Quincy Carter about Bill Parcells. "He's probably one of the best communicators in the world."

On the Impact of Bill Parcells in 2003:
"He's brought a winning attitude and a competitive spirit here that challenges everybody to get better on a daily basis. He's brought a confidence here and guys believe in his system that he's done it before and has had a lot of success. We had 100% precipitation in the offseason program and we have just been doing the things we've needed to do to improve this season. He preaches that preparation equals confidence. If you are prepared, and you know your assignments, then you'll be confident. He tells us that every team we play is going to be a challenge, and I think all that does is give us more motivation to play for him every week. He's probably one of the best communicators in the world. If he wasn't a head coach, he'd probably be a president. He knows how to motivate different kinds of people."

On the Improvement of the offense in 2003:
"Preparation has been the difference for us this year. They (the coaching staff) aren't asking us to do things that aren't our strengths, and it's a system that works for everybody. It's a collective group of players and coaches together that are doing it. We aren't surprised. If you go out and work hard, and carry out your assignments on a week-to-week basis, there shouldn't be any surprise that we are playing at the level we are right now. We are all playing good in some areas, and some areas we are not, but we've worked hard. It's early though (in the season). We know that we aren't playing perfect football and that we are going to have to continue to improve if we want keep on winning. That's no secret."

On the Playing the Bucs this Sunday:
"They probably have four or five pro-bowlers on that defense and a couple of other guys that I've really looked up to throughout my career in the NFL and in college. They get a lot of pressure on you with just four or five guys. They make good reads and then pursue about as good as any defense in the league. This is a veteran group that knows how to get the job done and win football games."
