    • QUOTES (3)

      • Rodney Harrison: I'm very disappointed in Dallas. They beat the Giants, alike you (Dan) said - on the road, come back. They have 10 days to prepare for Seattle. Why is it so hard for them to go on the west coast and win one football game?

      • (on the Philadelphia Eagles)
        Cris Collinsworth: This team is 2-0. They probably should be 0-2 and yet they have the impressive wins now, and they look ahead.
        Tony Dungy: You mentioned nine turnovers. They're still undefeated. Wait until they learn how to take care of the ball.

      • (on the Houston Texans defense)
        Rodney Harrison: It's a credit to this Houston defense. After losing Mario Williams (to Buffalo in free-agency), you never thought that this team would be this good. That front seven is unbelievable. It doesn't matter who's creating pressure, Coach, whether it's in the passing game, the running game, they got guys allover the field that can make plays.
        Tony Dungy: Yeah, they did lose Mario Williams but they kept their defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, and that's been huge. He has turned this defense around in two years.
