BUFFALO *BILLS VS. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS POST-GAME QUOTES 8/24/08 *
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (opening comments) Bills vs. Colts Post-Game Quotes 8/24/08
"It was a rather disappointing evening for us. We wanted to play much better opening up (Lucas Oil) stadium, but it didn't happen. I thought Buffalo came in and out played us. We've seen it on tape. They did the same thing with Pittsburgh and Washington. We'd seen a nice, very good physical team. I think Dick Jauron really got a team that he likes and, you know, they out played us tonight. They had the drive in the first half where we couldn't really generate anything in terms of their passing game on defense. They converted a bunch of third downs on us. I thought we played their running game pretty well but didn't really get them stopped on third downs. Offensively we didn't have a lot of rhythm, but didn't have the ball a lot. In the second half, we had a chance to get back in it but the turnovers on our part really took the wind out of our sails and defensively we couldn't force anything. So, it was one of those days we just didn't get the job done. It was a little disappointing. But we'll bounce back. We have a short week. We have to get ready for Cincinnati and we've got to get ready to get our roster cut down next week."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on Jim Sorgi not playing tonight) Bills vs. Colts Post-Game Quotes 8/24/08
"Jim got hit in the game last week, in Atlanta, and came out of that okay. Practiced on Wednesday, did fine. Just had a little bit more swelling and a little bit more soreness everyday. Even (Saturday) was still pretty good when we took our final drill work. But in the warm up, didn't feel 100% and we just felt if it was a regular season game he probably would have played but we felt it was best not to play."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders return) Bills vs. Colts Post-Game Quotes 8/24/08
"That was probably the most encouraging thing. Both those guys went in there, played and came through it well. They did some good things out there. Dwight had a couple of pressures on the QB and played his 18-20 plays. I think Bob got back in the flow of things and did a good job also."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on Jeff Saturday's injury) Bills vs. Colts Post-Game Quotes 8/24/08
"Jeff went out and has a knee injury. I don't know the extent of it yet. TJ Rushing also had an injury and I don't know the extent of it yet. They'll both, I'm sure, get MRIs tomorrow."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on playing in Lucas Oil Stadium) Bills vs. Colts Post-Game Quotes 8/24/08

DB-BOB SANDERS (on how it feels to be back) Bills vs. Colts Post-Game Quotes 8/24/08
"Good. I got in there and made a few tackles, ran around a little bit. Conditioning felt great, physically I feel great, mentally I feel great, so I'm definitely ready."
DB-BOB SANDERS (on if he had any rust) Bills vs. Colts Post-Game Quotes 8/24/08
"A little bit. Always the first time you get back on the field, you feel a little rusty. You want to get out there, you want to make some tackles, you want to run around and see how your conditioning is. It's just getting back into it. I think once we get going, the season kicks off, we'll get back in a rhythm and get back to ourselves."
