Head Coach Tony Dungy mini-camp quotes

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if the team is ready to get back)  “We are ready to get back at it.  I think it’s a pretty good feeling to have your group back together and kind of the beginning of the 2008 season.

"We are ready to get back at it.  I think it's a pretty good feeling to have your group back together and kind of the beginning of the 2008 season.  I told the guys this morning that's how I look at it, that we've done a lot of ground work to get the foundation ready, now it's time to roll and go to work.  And I think our group feels that way.  So it will be fun to get back out there, get back in the meetings and all of the things that we do at this time of year."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if this is the year that Reggie Wayne becomes the go-to WR) 

"You never know how that's going to go.  We certainly didn't expect that to be the case last year, and because of Marvin's injury, we really had to do that.  Reggie stepped up and had a phenomenal year, but he's been playing that way for three or four years.  I think Anthony's going to make the normal progression that you make between your first and second year.  We're always looking for people to step up.  Whether it's the receiver position or any position, you want to keep guys in the pipeline and keep getting better.  But we expect Marvin to be what he's always been.  We still want to be a diverse offense and we want to have a lot of weaponry."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on having RB-Dominic Rhodes back) 

"I think everybody's excited to have Dom back.  As we said when he left, it was one of those situations where you don't like to lose people.  He had been a big part of what we had done offensively for three or for years before that.  The opportunity to have him back, his personality is pretty infectious, and I think all of the guys are happy to have him back."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if WR-Marvin Harrison is in camp) 

"Marvin is here."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if he has talked to him regarding the report in Philadelphia) 

"I have not.  At some point I will, yes."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if he is under the impression that Harrison's rehab is on pace) 

"We had a medical meeting last night and I think we're pretty happy with the results.  The doctors were pretty happy with the results of everyone that ended the season last year injured.  The report that I've gotten is that Marvin's doing well, is right where the doctors hoped he would be.  Bob Sanders is, Dwight is, so we feel pretty good about our medical situation right now."
