QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey on the first team defense in Saturday night’s preseason opener — ““I felt like our first defense played strong.  We let a draw and a quarterback scramble get out and that was about it. Merriman was pretty impressive coming back in his debut. He only played nine snaps. We’re going to take it slow. I’ve always said with him it’s September 11th not now. So we’ll work him in a little bit more next week and let him keep getting better. He hasn’t played in a couple of years so we need to be smart in how we handle him, but he was very impressive rushing the passer.”
