You know me, give me a field and a blackboard, and I'm ready to coach football. I don't mean to sound insensitive, but that's just how it is. But I think, for all the personal reasons, we need to know where we are going to be for this season.

Will Smith is as fine as any player I've ever been around.

He looks so much more poised from when we played him last year. By the way the crow flies, it's only six games since we played him. But he's so much smoother out there.

He's got his sea legs back. It's critical that he doesn't bleed us to death.
