The first unit, we wanted to go halfway through the third quarter. I think that John has only been closing the games out. We wanted him to play a little bit more in the third quarter. This week, Josh will be in his customary second team when the second unit goes to play.
Josh has worked hard to get better. He really believes in himself as a player. I think he's been working with another guy who's had some great games in Kurt. I think they've helped each other.
I think that Kyle is a very good player. He's a rugged player. The guy always goes all out.
I don't think it's realistic to expect someone to snap (with his left hand) and also be able to block with that right hand. I think we're going to be patient, let it heal and then it depends on what kind of restricted device on that hand.
Look at Cincinnati last year. They won the division and went to the playoffs. That's the type of thing that gives hope.
It's hard, though, because it's a big ballpark. It's like in the outfield, there's a lot of room between center field and the right fielder, and you just hope you can close it.
We hope to never be picking there again.
I hope it's not a bad tear,
We made a lot of penalties that hurt us, ... It makes a difference.
Broken noses do occur in the game, unfortunately. He kind of got a blow right in between the facemask and his helmet. We'll know more about that once we get an idea from the doctors.
It's hard to say. Most people get a feel for who you are based on your philosophy. Even if they haven't played you, they know what your philosophical base is, who mentored you, and they get an idea of what you are going to do based on that.
I think coming off an injury is always tough. But he's a tremendous player. He has a good explosion, excellent hands, and (he's) very competitive.
Obviously he's going to play. He might start. We'll see. I haven't really thought much about it.
I'm just surprised I'm not doing a better damn job. The job I thought I could do, I've not been able to do right now. And I'm not happy about it.
I always talk to Al Davis, ... But it's not a good fit. I thought it was a decent fit back when I was a 29- or 35-year-old coach or something. I don't think Al's going to call. I think what Al's probably going to do is hire somebody off his staff.
He didn't get in. I thought he was in until I saw the replay.

There have been so many negative things said about the Arizona Cardinals for such a long period of time. Anytime someone says something good about you, it's good for the players.
We really don't know the extent of the injuries at this time, except Russell Davis, ... I think his report is much more serious (than the others.)
We've got a new guard and a new center and a new tackle. It's kind of what we've been struggling through all the time. Hopefully, we'll get the right formula.
They did not kick a field goal. We spent a lot of time in the red zone. Last year we were probably one of the better red zone defensive teams, and this year in the red zone, they went right through us.
Any time one of the 32 teams loses a starting quarterback, it probably makes a difference.
J.J. is the starter. I said that a long time ago.
We like him. He has good leadership skills. You go down to Florida State and he is kind of the No. 1 guy on a team with a lot of big-time players.
We played our worst defense at the worst possible time.
