On how the QB’s are looking:
"In a lot of ways it’s fun to have a quarterback competition, at the same time it’s kind fun to have the guy you know is going to be the starter so he can get most of the first group reps and you can start building some continuity. When I became the quarterback coach, the first thing my wife asked me was ‘Do they have a returning starter’. It seems like through 15 years of coaching quarterbacks, or whatever, 16 years now seems like half of them we’ve been trying to figure out who the starter’s gonna be. It’s fun to watch the guys compete. It’s fun to watch them learn. I am excited about the abilities they do have. Who it is or when it happens, they will determine that. They’ll determine that by how they play. How productive they are. How well the team moves when they’re in there. How many points we score. When it happens, how it happens is up to them."
On his influence on the offense considering his experience as a play caller:
"You just look at the people Jimbo hired on this staff. I have never been on a staff that has this much experience calling plays or calling defenses. I think that speaks highly of him, his security in what he’s doing and the fact he wants input from everyone. The offense isn’t going to change. It’s Coach Fisher’s offense. He’s also told me a number of times he wants input and it’s my job to provide input and not get my feelings hurt if we don’t do it, to keep providing my ideas because you need ideas. Somebody has to make the decision on whether you implement them or not but everyone needs to put in ideas."
