HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on what's been lacking in the run defense) Thursday, December 23, 2010

"It's consistency. That's kind of been, I think, an issue all across the board. We just haven't played consistently well enough. But you can't do a whole lot about what has happened in the past, it's the here and now is what counts. We want to build upon what we've done here of late. I think our guys are in that mindset. That's what we want to continue to do is to try and improve on it."

HEAD COACH JIM CALDWELL (on what it means to have RB-Joseph Addai in the lineup) Thursday, December 23, 2010

"He has a great grasp of what we do from a schematic standpoint. He understands all the nuances. He is very, very smart. Besides the physical talents he brings to the game, his ability to run the ball, he's a guy that can make you miss, but also has power, catches the ball out of the backfield, very, very versatile, but he's also a very good pass protector. I think those kinds of things, the things he brings to the table, he brings so many intangibles. He certainly does make a difference for us."
