JacksonvilleJaguars Conference Call
HEAD COACH JACK DEL RIO (on the feedback on wearing a suit on the sideline)
"I got a lot of positive feedback, a lot of letters and calls from people I don't even know saying how much they appreciate my wearing it and how much they like the professional, neat look. Letters are still coming. It's amazing."
HEAD COACH JACK DEL RIO (on playing the Colts)
"I think we have a healthy respect for their ability. Once again, they're on top of the league. They have the best record in the league. Once again, Peyton Manning is having a great year. They've got offensive weapons that are unbelievable. Defensively, they've got a lot of stars. They've got some elite pass rushers a very talented team. I think we see it as a challenge."
HEAD COACH JACK DEL RIO (on performing well late in the season)
"I think for us right now we understand that all we can control is the effort, the energy that we give today in preparation for Sunday, and what we want to do really is just prepare hard and then go out and compete. We're looking forward to the opportunity that we've got at least four more dates that are promised to us. We'll worry beyond that once we're done dealing with that (regular season)."
HEAD COACH JACK DEL RIO (on having a shot to play in the post-season)
"I think that sport has proven for years and years that there is a reason you play games. This franchise had its best record ever and got upset in the Championship game. There's no guarantee of that because you're a top seed that that's going to translate into an automatic championship. I think we've all played in tournaments over the years. I think the biggest thing is to make sure you're invited to the tournament. For us right now, we're in a situation where we just really have to play game-by-game and prepare day-by-day and get ready for it."
HEAD COACH JACK DEL RIO (on the big-play capabilities of Terrence Wilkins during last game)
"He'll get the same amount of attention, which is everything we have. It just wasn't good enough the first time around. He's got some ability and that certainly was a huge factor in the game."
