Wide receiver Eric Decker: "I think the biggest thing in this league is to be unpredictable. Pass or run on first down, get 3, 4 yards, get second-and-short, allow ourselves more success." I hope someone cuts this quote out and posts it on Mike McCoy's office door. Maybe even duck tape it to his forehead

Said Bailey (about DOOM): "Being the professional that he is, he's done everything by the book, since Day One. I expect him to do it from here on out. . . . He doesn't have to be here. And they don't have to pay him. I mean he wouldn't be wrong by not being here, but I think it says a lot about him by being here because he's not actually under contract. I know he wants to know the system, and know his teammates. And it feels good to me, as a guy who has been around a while to have a guy take that approach."
"We got rid of a lot of bad apples and brought in a lot of good ones," Bailey said. "That was the key to getting this thing really turned around.
It doesn't matter what, outside this locker room, they're saying about this team. We make our own reality in work, the way we practice, the way we prepare, and the way we play on game day. So people can continue to talk about us in the negative. That's fine. We don't believe in that.

Analysis: Won as a young player (21-12 starting record) … strong arm … personality and work ethic endear him to teammates … has not shown a consistent ability to change trajectory and ball speed on various throws
"The way the domestic-violence law is written, discretion is taken out of the hands of the police who are called," Kelly said. "B didn't have a bruise on him, and as big as he is, Michi didn't have a bruise on her. I don't condone violence or striking a woman in any way, shape or form. But to be held for a few hours and released for $300, and the judge to look at the facts and quickly dismiss it — that just doesn't happen. I just pray the league looks at the total picture."
"If my job is to penetrate in this gap then I am going to do that because I know my guy beside me is doing the same exact thing in his gap. If that’s the mentality that everybody is taking care of their gap and dominating their gap then we are going to be a pretty good doggone defense and create turnovers along the way."
