HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (general comments following Thursday's practice) 12/29/05
"I would first like to say thank you to everybody in Indianapolis and in the State of Indiana for all of the support you've given me and my family over the last few days. I really appreciate it tremendously. It has been a tough couple of days and it's been tough being away, but it was really made so much better by people all over the country, but especially, obviously, right here at home. So, thank you."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on being back) 12/29/05
"Our players, our organization have just been fantastic. It's so nice to be back with them and back out here. It's really a good feeling in the midst of a sad time."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how practice went Thursday) 12/29/05
"I thought practice went well, obviously. These guys have worked. I probably slowed things down a little bit today, because I wasn't as familiar with the Cardinals on some things as I needed to be. Hopefully, I'll catch up before the week's out."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how he expects the team to bounce back) 12/29/05
"We're in good shape. We still have a few guys who aren't going to play, but I think the guys who do play are going to play really hard and well. We definitely want to come out and get this win, reestablish our momentum at home and get to 14-2. I think we're going to play well."
