HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (general comments) Friday, November 2, 2007
"At some point, there will be a kickoff this week, and as I said before, it should be a fun game and a good game and that's what we're looking forward to at this point."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if he thinks WR-Marvin Harrison will play and if he does play will he be effective) Friday, November 2, 2007
"I think if he plays, he'll be effective. Our dilemma is right now is he's cleared to play, probably can play. The doctor's thought is if he plays, he's going to have some continued issues with it. If we give him a week off, another week off, he may be able to play next week and not have any issues down the stretch. He wants to play, so we'll see where it goes. It will probably be a decision we'll make over the next couple of days. I'm not sure where it will be, but he has played without practicing (before). If he does play, I would think he'll play pretty effectively."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if the opponent and circumstances of the game factor in to WR-Marvin Harrison playing or not) Friday, November 2, 2007
"Not really. If it was a playoff game, he would definitely be playing. The fact that we have eight games left and we have a lot of games that we have to win, that factors in to it. We want him to be ready coming down the stretch. If the doctors say we really have a much better chance of him being healthy down the stretch by sitting out, then we'll sit him out. We'll all get together and make that decision."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if he saw the Colts gain confidence after beating the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game) Friday, November 2, 2007
"I don't think that was really the game per se. I think the game for us was the Monday Night Game up there a couple of years ago. We had struggled beating those guys, hadn't had much success against them and went up there and won. I think that helped us more than anything."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on finding RB-Kenton Keith) Friday,
"We felt good about Kenton, watching him practice, watching him be with us in the offseason program. I had not seen any tape of him in Canada, but our people said, 'You have a good player.' We hadn't seen it live on the field in the NFL, but everything we had seen, he had a lot of the same characteristics as Dominic—some suddenness and some ability to get through holes, and he could catch the ball well. We felt pretty good, and he's justified that."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how someone like RB-Kenton Keith falls can fall through the holes and none of the other 31 teams pick him up) Friday, November 2, 2007
"It's hard to say, really. Every now and then, you're going to get good players from non-traditional places. Not a whole lot of players come down from Canada, but we've had a little success with that, and I think every team in the league has. You have to get a little bit lucky, and fortunately we did."
