HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the Blue/White scrimmage) Training Camp
"I think it went well. The thing we wanted to do is see how the young guys would compete against good competition. We had some guys who really stepped up and did some things and that's what you're looking for."

"Yeah, he made some good runs and he's ready to make some people miss. I think he and RB-Edgerrin [James], all week, have really been exciting in the open field. That's good to see."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the receivers) Training Camp
"We've got a tremendous receiving core and our first five or six guys are very good. They're continuing to gel and we had some young guys, today, that showed that they belong and they can do some things. I think it's going to be very competitive all the way through camp, but we have a lot of young guys that have to learn."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on the young guys stepping up) Training Camp
"That's the real key in all this. We're going to need some young guys to step up and help us this year. With the way we do things around here, we build from within. We need rookies and your second-year players to become men in a hurry. So hopefully this will be a big step for those guys, getting some confidence to help us."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on the first week of camp) Training Camp
"It's been a good week. We've been off to a good start. Like I said, we still need to work on some things. We can keep getting better like always, but I thought it was a good start from a tempo standpoint. I kind of like the attitude of players so far. Everybody's here and they're healthy right now and keeping themselves in good health, in good shape. I think we're coming together."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on coming back Monday and having game week preparation) Training Camp
"Yeah, I like when the pre-season gets here because, really, it means that the real season is getting closer and closer. It's always nice for you to see guys in game action. It's one thing to see them out here when it's not quite full contact, but you put the real pads on and you're going against somebody different, see a different defense–that's when you get some good evaluations of some players."
