HEAD COACH'S COMMENTS
"I think the leadership we have is outstanding. When you have a David Pollack and David Greene, that's very good to have. Men of high character. Good players, good students."
"Real curious to see if the OL will really gel and play as good as I hope they can. We've moved Max-Jean Gilles to guard, more of his natural position. But he was by far the best tackle we had. We think we have three who can hold the fort at tackle and let Max move inside."
"I think they have to name somebody No. 1. People look at what did last year, who you're losing, how many starters return. I don't know if we're in any better position to win it this year. All comes down to if you win the close games. There will be a lot of close games, I can tell you that."
