Jeff Fisher Quotes

(on if guys need to take Sunday to recover)

**Well, we need to recover.  That has kind of been the emphasis this week; to go hard and take whatever allotted time there is to get your body back.  We've finished exactly a week of practice and I think we're just okay.  Next week is going to be real important to us, but I think overall physically we're good, we've got some guys who are getting close to getting back on the field and they'll benefit from their rest.

(on if he has a feel for this year's defensive line with Tony Brown and Derrick Morgan being injured)

**I think we're in good shape.  We're going to make the assumption that Derrick is going to return and Tony is going to return with ample time before the season starts.  Our front is playing pretty good, Sen's (Sen'Derrick Marks) coming on, Jacob (Ford) is nicked a little bit now, but Will (Hayes), Jovan (Haye) and Jacob are all doing well.  We'll have a lot of competition, there will be some tough decisions we'll have to make there, but when it's all said and done and the dust settles, we'll have a good rotation.

(on if there are too many flags from the officials for his liking)

**I'm asking for them.  Its little things, we work really hard on the hard count and it pays off.  Unless you work on it, you don't get the results you want during the regular season on both sides of the ball.  We clearly have to get better defensively; our numbers were unacceptable last year.  But you have to work on it, and in that process you pay the price at times because there are mistakes.

(on what he's seen from Michael Griffin thus far)

**Yeah, he's been great all offseason.  His attendance has been great, his focus has been great, he's got things a little settled down and he's just a free safety right now and that's what he needs to be.
