HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (opening remarks)           

"Well we've pretty much put the business end of our week in place and got through today's practice.  I thought our guys were very focused in and dialed in which is what we wanted.  We're going to take a couple of days off and then re-convene on Monday, have a very short workout and then get ready to go down to Miami.  But I thought our week went well.  I think our guys have handled things well and they're looking forward to getting ready to go."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the Colts and Chicago having different schedules and if he likes having an extra week)        

"Everybody has a different way of doing things.  We've had three really tough games.  I'm glad we have this weekend between (games).  Our stretch was very tough, very physical, very emotional, so I think it's going to benefit us to take a couple of days off.  Chicago only played twice.  They had a week off, so I think that may have had part to do with it.  But we just look at our plan and what we need to do."

"We're comfortable playing different ways and I was never concerned when people said, 'The offense didn't look in sync,' or 'the offense didn't do this.'  We knew how the games were going to play out those first two games, and those were the types of games we had to play.  To get 32 points in a half against New England, there aren't many offenses that can do that.  And when we had to do it, we needed to, we did.  And that's what we're used to from our group."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on both defenses playing the Cover 2)     

"What it's going to be like is two offenses that have played against this defense for a long time.  Our offense has played against it for five ye
