Opening statement:

“First off, a couple of scheduling notes. Tomorrow we will be inside in the morning, so that practice will be closed to the public. Of course open to the media, but we are going to go inside in the morning. In regards to Saturday’s Black and Gold scrimmage, our times will be just as normal, 8:50 a.m. start time. We will probably not go past around 11:00 a.m. The gates will open at 8:00 a.m. Saturday’s timeslots will be just like we have been on like we have been out here in the morning.”

Have you seen improvement from year one to year two with Travaris Cadet?

“For me it’s year one. I have seen a season of him playing. He is versatile. I think he is handling some of the base stuff better, so you see him running the ball between tackles a little better. But, he has good ball skills. He is smart and some of the things I have seen him do are encouraging. I think in the return game he is going to improve.”

What is your take of the spread option?

“It’s here, especially in the NFC when you look at Carolina, San Francisco, and Washington. During this past offseason, even when we went through the coordinator search, we spent time with a handful of coaches just on their thoughts and what they are doing to defense against it. I think that’s one of the key things that we do in our league every year. There’s an action and then there is some kind of reaction in regards of getting familiar with an offense or a defense. Certainly, that is one element I think everyone is studying a little bit closer and bringing in a college coaches to visit with and those guys that see it more frequently than we do (can help). It is just about coming up with a sound plan that you feel like gives your players a chance to slow that down.”

Do you think, when you look at the kind of game Colin Kaepernick had against the Green Bay Packers when he rushes for almost 200 yards that NFL defenses would make adjustments and that would be few and far between that a quarterback would have that kind of game?

“That’s one game. I think that a lot of people have looked at, and I know every team in our league has spent more time than normal in regards to some of the nuances when the offense gets their man back from an advantage standpoint. When you take a snap under center and the quarterback is not the ball carrier, there is a little bit of 11 on ten that is taking place and so when he becomes or has that element of the run in that read option, now you have your numbers back. So, it is going to stress the defense, especially some of the tempos that are involved with is, but it is a handful especially when you have your players running it like Colin is.”

What is Seneca Wallace’s injury?

“Seneca has a groin. We are waiting on (it) right now. We just want to make sure we don’t hurry a couple of these guys back.”

What about Ryan Griffin?

“I thought he had his best practice to date. I thought he made some really good plays. There are some things he did with protections that are really impressive as well, getting the right guys blocked. He made some big throws. He has picked things up pretty quickly and I thought he played really well.”

What has Bill Parcells meant to you?

“I have said this before. It was later in my career as an assistant coach, but it gave me a chance to spend three years with someone who is very talented. It was a lot like going to law school for me. More than just the Xs and Os, he was so good with personnel. He was so good with his ability to get the best out of everyone and not just the players, but the coaches, the trainers. He is very passionate about football and just to have that opportunity, I think anyone that have had some success in our careers, generally we have been fortunate enough to be around some people that have been successful. That certainly has been the case for me. He is well-deserved (to go into the Pro Football Hall of Fame) and I really am excited for him. I think it is a special honor.”
