HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on the third day of practice at training camp) Training Camp

"We got some good work in and got to work in the red zone and had a couple of injuries. With defensive backs getting banged around, we're running a little short, numbers wise there, but all in all I thought a pretty good day. We've got some guys learning how to practice and what it takes to be good at this level."

HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on the possibility of Marlin Jackson at safety) Training Camp

"Well, that's something we'll talk about.  Maybe for a few days until these guys get back.  It's something we know is in our back pocket that we could do.  Marlin is working at corner right now and doing well, so, we're hesitant to move him if we can help it."

HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on night practices) Training Camp

"As much as these guys don't want to admit it, they really do enjoy it.  I think you'll see some deep balls come out tonight when the fans start cheering, some guys wanting to make plays and I think everyone appreciates the big stage."

HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on LB-Freddie Keiaho) Training Camp

"We're happy to get Freddie, we felt it was just going to be a matter of time.  That's one of the reasons why we do the rookie program the way we do it and really go over the first three days.  He had that last week and now it's a matter of catching up and he's worked at it.  He did a good job for his first day."

HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on the running game) Training Camp

"Our running game has been good so far. Dominic Rhodes and Joseph Addai bring some slashing ability, some explosion, and some open field ability. James Mungro has been like he always has, very dependable and very good. Vashon Pearson has been good for us.  I think we've got a good group."

HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on Dominic Rhodes #1 RB on the depth chart) Training Camp

"Dominic deserves it.  He has the most experience.  He has played, he is a 1,000-yard rusher and number two behind Edgerrin (James) last year. That's where it is and we'll see what happens."

HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on first impressions of Joseph Addai) Training Camp

"The biggest thing about Joseph so far, I think everyone on the staff has talked about, is composure.  We do a lot of things on offense and he's run with the first group, been in with Peyton, had some plays changed at the last second, and none of that has flustered him.  He did a good job in pass protection in the two drills that we had.  He understands how to play the game.  He has tremendous speed.  He's a little bit better in the hole than we thought.  He's made some people miss in the hole in his first three days, but more than anything, he doesn't seem to get flustered and that's going to help him."

HEAD COACH-TONY DUNGY (on friendly competition at running back) Training Camp

"It is, and I think when you're a good team that's what happens, whether it's at QB, RB, or DB. You know that guys are going to be in there at certain points of the seasons and they have to be able to perform. That's how it was when Dominic (Rhodes) got here. Edgerrin (James) went down and he got 1,100 yards because
