HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER
(on if the team is ready for Monday's home opener)
We still have some things yet to do, as far as final preparation but I thought we had a good week—a really good week. We got a lot done.
(on if guys are where he wants them right now)
We've had a good week. We've accomplished things on the field, we're starting to heal up overall as a team, and hopefully that will carry over into preseason game number two.
(on if today's practice was better than some earlier in the week)
No, we've had a good week. This is more of a preparation for the Cardinals practice session today.
(on what he hopes to accomplish when practicing with the Arizona Cardinals next week)
We just have one practice, it will be on Wednesday. Coach (Ken) Whisenhunt and I are going to visit between now and our game and then again after and evaluate the health of the team. It will be great work; it's nice to be able to work against somebody else. We have a unique situation, you typically work before a game or you don't have a game, but this is one of those deals where we're just going to take advantage that they're going to be here.
(on if last year's game served as a confidence boost for some of the younger players)
It was good timing. It came for some of our younger players and of course the final drive was a great drive. It was a very, very exciting game with a tremendous finish, but it has no bearing on what happens this week.
(on if he likes practicing with another team)
Yeah, it's a nice changeup. We had opportunities, clearly, to do it but I thought it was best for our team just to get through the couple weeks and we did. We got through it without any difficulty and typically speaking, my preference would be to (practice) before the preseason games start against another club, not in the middle, but we're taking advantage of this.
