    • QUOTES (4)

      • Bob Costas: But, can you appreciate that the league, for all of its popularity, has some problems on its hands? It just settled a suit for nearly $800 million, they face the possibility that moms and dads of upcoming generations will be reluctant to let their kids play. Can you appreciate their concerns?
        James Harrison: Oh, yeah. I definitely understand what they're going through. They need to protect themselves and protect their players. When you play this game, there's a certain amount of risk that comes along with playing football. Just as if a guy goes out and he's a police officer or a firefighter, there's a certain amount of risk that goes along with [that].
        Bob Costas: You have two young boys of your own. Will you encourage them to play football?
        I won't discourage them; if that's something that they want to do. As far as allowing them to do contact football, I probably wouldn't allow them to do that until maybe high school.

      • Mike Florio: Peter, we talked last week about the possibility of the replay review function being taken out of the stadiums and moved to a central location. It wasn't clear when that would happen, but momentum has been building. I'm told it could now be in place as soon as 2014. A lot of people in the league hate the current system and want to see it changed.
        Peter King: And, Mike, referee Jeff Triplette's blown reversal last week at Cincinnati has been a major spur to get people this week to try to think of implementing centralized replay for 2014.

      • Tony Dungy: Well, I like Kirk Cousins, but we can't get too excited. We have to remember he was playing against a patchwork secondary and some of the same problems with the Redskins showed up today, all of the turnovers and kind of dysfunctional play. But Cousins played well.
        Dan Patrick: Well (Washington head coach Mike) Shanahan says, 'Maybe if we display him, maybe we get a first-round draft pick that we gave away with RG III.
        Tony Dungy: I wouldn't think first-round pick. I like Kirk Cousins right where he is, as the backup quarterback in Washington.

      • Tony Dungy: San Francisco can win on the road because of their defense and their running game with Frank Gore. But, when Colin Kaepernick plays like he played today, moving around, getting out of the pocket, getting everybody involved, putting pressure on the defense, and, more importantly, these deep balls. When he's on target, they can go into Seattle and win.
