7-30 Training Camp Quotes Tony Dungy

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the day’s first practice) Training Camp “We had our first day of working on situations. We didn’t really work off a script, we worked on coming off our own end zone with our offense and worked on our end-of-the-game situations with our offense ahead.

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the day's first practice) Training Camp

"We had our first day of working on situations. We didn't really work off a script, we worked on coming off our own end zone with our offense and worked on our end-of-the-game situations with our offense ahead. This evening we will work on end of the game with the offense behind. It's a little different for the players - no scripts, they don't know exactly what's going to happen, the coaches aren't on the field and it's always a little bit different. We will continue to get sharper. Our defense had the edge today and that's good to see, but we need to sharpen up with our offense for sure."

 

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if the players are excited to practice under the lights tonight) Training Camp

"I think they will be. It's always different, and you don't think it would be, but with a great number of fans out and the lights and it's something we don't normally do. It is a lot of fun. I think our guys are looking forward to it. We will have some competitive things, a two-minute situation, so we will have a good time."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on where his team stands as opposed to this point last year) Training Camp

"It's hard to say. This is a different schedule for us. Normally we come in on Sunday, (this year) we came in on Thursday, so we've had some extra practice sessions. We have changed the schedule around a little bit, not as many two-a-days. I think we are about in the right spot to be four days before a game."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on RB Mike Hart's transition) Training Camp

"Mike's doing well. I mentioned the other day that I can see why his college coaches and everybody that's been around him really likes him because he just does a lot of little things. He works hard, he can do a number of things.  He's distinguished himself on special teams already.  He's made some good runs for us. But every job you give him he does it 100 percent and that's what you like to see."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if RB Mike Hart's role will be on special teams) Training Camp

"You never know. I don't really project roles. I think he can do a lot of things, and I think he is very capable of carrying the ball for us."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on DT Darrell Reid possibly playing FB) Training Camp

"We have worked Darrell in.  Having lost Luke Lawton, we don't really have a true fullback, so he'll do some of it. We will get some of our tight ends, Tom Santi we expect to get some work there when he gets back, but we'll see. Darrell's done a good job for us in the past."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how DB Marlin Jackson has evolved) Training Camp

"I think we've really found the niche for Marlin. When he first got here we were trying to determine whether he was going to be a safety or a corner. He started out at corner for us, we had some injuries, he swapped back and forth, but now playing on the right side and then moving into the nickel inside, I think he's got a handle on what he's going to be expected to do. He's getting better and better."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on DB Antoine Bethea's progress) Training Camp

"Antoine, I think, is going to take another step. He had a very, very fine year for us last year. He's comfortable in that slot now, a lot more vocal than his rookie year, and he knows his job. I would think he's just going to continue to play even better and last year he had a Pro-Bowl year."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on DT Quinn Pitcock) Training Camp

"Right now, Quinn is really thinking that he's not going to play. We're certainly going to leave the door open for him. I have been aware of some
