HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (general comments) * *
"A big game this week. Obviously for us, we want to stay in first place going into our bye. We're playing a team that is pretty hot. They haven't given up a point in the first half since Week 1. So, they're playing well, doing a lot of the fundamental things well that you need to do to win. It should be a good game."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how much of his defense he still sees in Tampa's current defense)
"Not as much on defense. They're doing some different things, some new coverages since I was there, but I think the basic philosophy is the same on defense, to run and hustle and hit and have a lot of active, fast players. So that part is still the same, but they're doing a few things differently."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how well Tampa's defense is playing)
"They're playing pretty well. Nobody's really moved the ball in the first half on them. That's a sign of a good team. I think they're well prepared when they come out to play. They have some new defensive linemen that have played really physical. I think their two safeties have hit, done some real good things. So, it's pretty impressive watching them."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on WR-Joey Galloway moving around a bit)
"They move him around trying to get big plays to him and create some mismatches. He's their speed guy. They haven't thrown the ball a lot, but they have gotten some big plays to him that have broken open some games. So we have to be aware of where he is and what they try to do with him."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the game in 2003 and where does that rank among birthday presents)
"That was one of my better birthday presents, for sure. To win that game the way we did, down there, the first time back in Tampa, it couldn't have been scripted better. Saturday is my birthday this week, so we'll see how the game goes."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how, or if, things will change with LB-Rocky Boiman in the lineup replacing Rob Morris)
"They won't change. The same group that was in there at the end of the game, we had Kenton Keith and Aaron Moorehead and Bryan Fletcher and Rocky Boiman and Matt Giordano, and we outplayed Denver with those guys in the game. And that's what we're going to have to do this week if it comes t
