Can you talk about the tough schedule early in the season?
“I kind of like the schedule, I'll be honest with you. Our opponents are predetermined. It's just a matter of when we play them. We received our bye week right in the middle of the season. I liked that. Those first four weeks are tough opponents, but we're going to have to play them anyway during the course of the year. It is not like you can avoid playing teams you perceive as being pretty good. I think in the first half, we’re playing five of the eight, I think are playoff teams from a year ago. That is just the way it goes. We're looking forward to it. We're looking forward to playing the guys on the schedule that we have and we've got four prime time games, three of those are at home. I like that too. I think we like our schedule.”
Did the teams’ free agent signings fill most of the holes to allow you to pick the best available player in the draft?
“I think for the most part, yes. That is always our goal. We have a list of items we want to get accomplished in the offseason and I think for the most part we did that. We’ll go into this draft and it is a little different when you do not have that first round pick. We are picking at 62, so it's a lot tougher to predict who's going to be available to you. But I like the position we're in.”
The team has lost the season opener five straight seasons, how can the team start fast?
“I did not realize that until you reminded me. I think we are always focused on starting fast and we have had some teams that have played good games against us, as much as anything. We get a home game against a really tough opponent (on) Monday Night Football and we've had success in those (home) prime time games. Hopefully we'll have success this year.”
