“Every Wednesday and every Thursday we have a pressure period and Cincinnati has a very good scheme good this week and (pass protection) is absolutely essential. It’s a huge part of what we do.” – Head Coach Joe Philbin on the importance of his running backs doing a better job of pass blocking

“We’re anxious to see him. He looks like he’s moving well and we’ll see if he continues to progress during the course of the week.” – Philbin on the progress being made by defensive tackle Tony McDaniel with his knee injury

“I think learning how to make plays when they really count is something that you can emphasize and put the players in position in practice and hopefully get them to do it there and then the best hope is that carries forward to the game.” – Philbin on if learning how to win can be taught

“He looks like a good decision maker and he does all of the things a good quarterback does. He appears to be a good decision maker, he’s accurate, he has a good sense of what’s going on around him, it looks like he’s a good game manager and he’s throwing the ball well. He throws the deep ball well, too and he’s got some skill, no question” – Philbin on what he sees from Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton on film
