QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On NT Marcell Dareus making another big step yesterday and other bright spots:
Marcell was one of the bright spots. He did some good things yesterday. He really did. I thought that was a plus coming out of the ball game. I thought Dwan Edwards did some good things on the field yesterday. He played pretty well. It was good to get George (Wilson) back. You could tell he was a little rusty but it was good to get him back on the field. There were some positives. Justin Rogers returning kick offs was a positive. I thought that looked good for what he may bring in the future.
