Everything we talk about is about beating the Packers, the Bears and the Vikings. Obviously there are other teams in the league, but if you can dominate and be on top of your division you are always in the playoff hunt. It's time for us to win that thing.

Maybe it's the way we traveled. Maybe just fly in, eat some angel hair pasta and go play. Maybe that's what we're going to do from now on.

We know who is out there as far as available quarterbacks, but in reality, no one would be more prepared or capable as a No. 2 at this point than Dan. He got more snaps in the preseason than any of our quarterbacks and continues to get better.

The other issue is, his ankle's swelling up.

You want to see it on film?

He's an up-and-coming guy, and if there is a surprise in our draft class, it is Dan, ... The game isn't too fast for him, and we're not writing him off as the backup right now.

I care about this state... and I feel a responsibility to get things done. If we stay healthy and play smart we can be a playoff team. I think we're on the right track.

We're taking a look, if we choose to add another quarterback. We want to take a good look at him and see how he learns our offense -- if he's a candidate to bring back at another time. We've seen him play on film in a very exciting offense. He's been productive.

There are no excuses for a game like this. I thought we were very fired up and ready to go, but it just didn't happen on the field. It's alarming.
Steve Mariucci

How could he possibly have any idea of what we're doing before he got here? He took a year and a half off. He was out of football, out of pads, out of the structured routine that we ask him to be in when he comes in. There's no way running on a beach or at some high school playground that you're going to get in football shape like you do when you practice.
