On whether he was happy with the way the team practiced this week
"Yeah, yesterday we had a great tempo - had two great days in pads earlier in the week and really focused hard on the running game and then yesterday and today will be high tempo, no hitting, just focused on the execution and get everything kind of finalized for the game. (I) feel good about where our players are at. (I) feel like we had good week of practice mentally. I think they know what we need to do and let's get the butterflies out of us in the first quarter and play for four quarters."
On whether there was a particular reason for focusing on the run game this week
"No, it's just how we practice every week."
On whether he thinks Jacksonville DE Aaron Kampman will move around during the game
"That's a good question - they've moved him around and kind of had him in a three-technique inside the defensive tackle. They haven't really used him as a stand-up guy - they've used somebody else in that role. I'd imagine he'd be on our left most of the time but it's opening day. We've watched them all and we know they can move him a little bit but I'd imagine that they'd probably play him most of the time where he's been."
On CB Champ Bailey
"It's extremely valuable to have a corner that has the ability that Champ has - he's done it for a long time. I kid him that we've turned him from an off-corner to a press-corner in the last two years. He kind of chuckles about that because he can really do either, he just chose to do more of the other, prior to last year but whenever you feel like you need to put some pressure on the corner to help another part of your defense, I think it's great to have a player like Champ that accepts that challenge. We put that pressure on him off-and-on last year and he really responded to it well. He's had a great camp, he looks fresh and I think he's really ready to go this year."
On the challenges presented by the Jacksonville weather
"We've been hydrating all week - I know (Jacksonville has) practiced in it and played in it and maybe we haven't played in the same type of weather most of the spring and summer but Sunday it will be hot for them too. I think the team that plays the best will probably be affected the least. The team that struggles early - if that's the case - or makes some mental mistakes and then you start to allow those types of things to affect you more. We've just got to focus on trying to do our job early and I think our guys have really done a great job of trying to pound fluids all week and really get ready to go so they're not waiting until Sunday to get an IV 20
