Two great quotes:

JCF: Looking ahead to this week’s game, you’ve got the winless Atlanta Falcons. Are you guys going in there licking your chops, or are you a bit anxious because you know they have to break through at some point?

BP: I think we’re more worried that they’re a desperate team. We were in the same situation last year when we started off 0-3. Miami came into our place and we were hungry for that first win and we got it. So we can totally put ourselves in their shoes and how they’re feeling. They’re really looking for a win and we’re definitely not going to take them lightly even though they’re 0-3. They’ve had a lot of turnover issues and that’s contributed to their losses, but we’re just gonna go in there and treat them like we would any other team; whether it’s the 2-0 Indianapolis Colts or the 0-3 Atlanta Falcons.

JCF: Switching gears for a moment, I hear special teams coach Joe Marciano is quite a character. Tell us your best “Joe” story.

BP: Man, there are so many of them. I’ll try to keep it rated PG. Well, sometimes after our meetings are done, he likes to wrap things up with a clip of some video that he’s edited to his liking. And sometimes he’ll show us some graphic photos of things I’d really rather not mention.

JCF: Can we draw our own conclusions as to what those graphic photos might be?

BP: Pretty much. I mean, if you’re familiar with elephantitis, just picture that with – how do I say this? – with an unfortunate man’s testicles. So we like to show that to all the rookies so that they know to let their nuts drop. But he doesn’t get real crazy, at least not as much as people might think. He does it to keep guys motivated and into the game plan. I mean, it can get monotonous when you’re sitting there with the same routine, same meeting style and all that. So he likes to jazz it up a little bit with his personality and his way of coaching. It gets guys to really adhere to it, so it’s a positive thing for all of us.

Odd qoute

BP: Well, Ron Dayne took most of the snaps in practice today and I’m not sure about the status of Ahman Green. As far as I know, he’s playing. He’s just going to rest his knee for the next couple of days, but I expect to see him on the field on Sunday.

Odd, because it contradicts what Manfull reported recently.
