DETROITLIONS vs. INDIANAPOLISCOLTS POST-GAME QUOTES
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (general comments) DetroitLions vs. IndianapolisColts 8/25/07
"We won a pre-season game. I thank the team for winning so we wouldn't have to answer those questions. There were a lot of good things out there. Our third pre-season game, we had some long drives on offense where we kind of created some problems and were able to overcome them. I thought our defense did a good job of going out there and playing aggressively. We saw some young guys show up on the special teams. So other than the two fumbles with our young receivers, it was a pretty good day's work."

"A lot of guys did well from the areas we were looking at. I thought Tim Jennings (DB) went in and played real well with the second group as a nickel-back and did some good things in there. I thought our returners did a good job of handling the ball and running. Craphonso Thorpe (WR) obviously had a big night. Some of our young guys got in and did a good job. It was good to see. I thought our first group set the tempo really well and we didn't have much drop. I thought Jim (Sorgi) threw the ball well and got a lot of one-on-ones to throw against and he did a good job."

"We got a few chances to kick-off and we covered much better. We were able to use our speed. I thought our guys were a little bit more disciplined. We didn't have very many punts to cover and most of those they were trying to block, so we ended up forcing fair catches. But it was good to see our kick-off coverage be a little sharper."

"I thought all the guys did well. They didn't get a lot of chances to run because there were so many eight-man fronts and blitz-type looks, we ended up throwing the ball a lot. But they protected well for the most part
