HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (opening remarks)  * *

"(The) rain held off for us, so we're excited about that.  We're on our second day of work.  I thought our young guys this morning had a little bit better idea of how we do things.  Our tempo was better.  We're off to a good start."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on injured players) 

"(We're) just resting up injuries and guys not medically cleared, whether they weren't able to condition enough, whether it was surgeries. We have a few different things.  (I'm) not exactly sure with Gary (Brackett), what program he's on, but nothing serious I don't think."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on following Spygate) 

"I don't really have a whole, whole lot of reaction.  The commissioner, I think he has said in their (the NFL) mind it's over and done with, and I think that is how we've progressed and try to move forward."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if he is happy with the progress of mini-camp) 

"I like where we are in terms of our veteran guys really coming in excited and energized and demonstrating, very well I think, how we do things.  I like our chemistry right now and our work ethic.  All in all, I think we're in pretty good shape."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the performance of WR-Reggie Wayne last year after the injury to WR-Marvin Harrison) 

"Reggie's gotten better every year since I have been here, just little fine point, little details, getting more opportunities, but really understanding the game, how we do things and making those plays.  He made a ton of big plays for us, was very consistent all year, but not a whole lot different (last year) than he's been maybe the last three years."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how teams approached the Colts last year with WR-Marvin Harrison off the field) 

"Everyone plays us, I think they have an idea going in how they want to stop our attack.  We have had that kind of change over the years.  At one stage when I first got here, I think they thought the idea was a lot of pressure and coming after Peyton (Manning), and we got a lot of single-coverage.  The year we had all the touchdown passes (2004), we had a lot of single-safeties and one-on-one throws.  After that year, coming into 2005, we had a lot of people play us kind of in softer coverage and a lot of Cover-2, try to make us be patient, try to make us run the ball.  I think it has evolved that way more so than who's out there.  I think it's more how they want to defend our attack.  Our receivers, they run their routes and depending on how the defense plays us that's where we have to go.  Obviously, Reggie (Wayne) became a bigger part last year.  Anthony (Gonzalez) was hurt for a while.  Marvin was hurt.  At tight end, Dallas (Clark) was out for a little bit, and Reggie was our one veteran guy.
