HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on how today went)

"We got another little break with the weather.  A cool day again, which helped.  We got some goal line and short yardage work which we missed the first week, because of the short week getting ready for Dallas.  We caught up on a few things and continue to build."

 

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on RB-Kenton Keith being sort of a mix of Clifton Dawson and DeDe Dorsey)

"He probably is.  Kenton can do a lot of things.  Playing in the Canadian league, he has gotten well-versed in the passing game and catching the ball, which help in this offense.  He has done a good job in the mini-camp and the first part before he got hurt here, so we are anxious to see him this week get some game action."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on where RB-Clifton Dawson fits into the mix)

"He's doing a good job.  Very, very smart player. Understanding the offense, learning it, grasping it real well.  He's a guy that runs tough and probably not as versed in the passing game as DeDe (Dorsey) and Kenton (Keith) right now, but growing everyday and doing good things." 

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on WR-Roy Hall)

"Roy has done a good job learning the receiving position in the passing game, done a really good job on special teams.  I think we are going to be able to use his size and speed there.  He's an exciting weapon and we just have to try to figure out the best way to use him."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the secondary being more physical this year)

"I think it will be.  Some of the best things some of these guys do is play with their pads and hit.  Marlin (Jackson) and Kelvin (Hayden) are obviously bigger guys than we have had.  Dante Hughes I think is going to be in that same boat.  I think we are going to have to utilize that, that we do have guys that aren't necessarily quick undersized guys, but are bigger guys."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on DB-Antoine Bethea)

"Antoine is doing well.  He's playing with a lot more confidence.  He is much more sure of himself at this point now than he was last year and I think he is going to have a good year."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on DBs-Dante Hughes and Michael Coe)

"They are doing fine.  They are learning and making the typical two steps forward, one step back type situation, but they are both smart guys and they are coming along real well."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on LB-Rob Morris)

"He really is doing a good job.  Middle linebacker is his natural position, but sam is just where it fit for us.  I think those qualities he has of studying, knowing what is going on, of being a guy that just doesn't quit, doesn't give up, that's what's propelled him to play so well out there.  I don't think it is his natural position, but he's been very good for us."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on Morris' attitude of moving to strong side linebacker)

"Well, to me that was the easy part.  Everybody, when you say, 'Hey, you can switch positions and start.'  Everybody will do that.  When you say, 'Hey, you are not going to be a starter at Middle Linebacker, we want you to be a backup player and a special teams guy.'  Do that for a year and still have the same attitude, and play great on special teams, to me that was the impressive part.  Then to be ready when we say, 'Hey, we are going to move you and give you a chance to play,' an
