Head Coach Bill O’Brien
(on how he will handle the quarterback situation and reps moving forward) “We mix and match those guys. We’re looking at a lot of different guys at different positions. Today, you saw some younger players in there with (Brian) Hoyer and (Ryan) Mallett. You saw some different offensive lines in there, just trying to look at the versatility of some of those guys. I wouldn’t read too much into that. It’s really all about, like I said a couple weeks ago, when the ball is snapped and the decisions that they’re making and how they’re communicating and things like that. Like I said last week, both guys have really competed hard and done a good job this spring.”
NT Vince Wilfork
(on how he would describe DE J.J. Watt) “Intense. The way he plays is the way he practices. That’s why he does the things he does on game day because he practices the same way. He has a great motor. It’s exciting for me to see just because I know the success he’s had in his short career so far. Just to be with him every day to see exactly what he puts in because a lot of guys don’t put a lot of work in the game. They just get to a certain level and they get complacent. They’re just happy with where they’re at. To see him work every day, he’s going to be a great player for a long time and it all starts with the way he works. He makes me work harder. He makes guys around him work harder. That’s a true leader. I think a lot of the guys feed off of him, offensively and defensively. We all feed off him. He’s going to be great for a long time.”
