QUOTES OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
Q: OG Andy Levitre has been such a steady constant over the last few years. Maybe just speak to him being available every Sunday.
A: Yeah you do not find a lot of players, we have not in particular, players that are there week in and week out the way he has been. He has been solid, ‘Steady Eddie’ for us and played well. He has been one of the pleasant things for offense as far as consistency goes.
