Q: Thoughts on the documentary:

A: Quite frankly, I haven't seen it yet. I've received some nice comments about ‘family.' Judy, I told her, I'm sending her to California, to Hollywood. She told me she was sending me some place too (laughs). She didn't quite finish the sentence.

Q: How do you counter these moves against your ends?

A: It's not easy. What happens then is you go through this...When you chip, you don't get as many people out, so you're in a constant (dilemma) between the strategy of protection with the chipping, with the tight end, where you place the tight end, do you snap the ball with someone in front of the pass rusher vs. spreading them out and getting some people out in the pattern quicker? There are decisions that have to be made all along. You just keep coming. If you're defensive linemen, you just keep coming. You recognize the chips, and when you study Philadelphia, you see that a lot of times those outstanding rushers from the outside, when they see the chips coming, they move back into a bull rush position. There are ways, there are strategies.

Q: If Coe and Hosley cannot both go, does that put you in a tough position?

A: Well it certainly isn't like having five. We'll see how that goes. We may dress one of the people from the media.
