On summing up his overall performance today:
I thought at times we were executing the right way and other times we didnít, but the most important thing is we came out with a win.
On the offense not making many mistakes:
The biggest thing was no turnovers, and I think we had one penalty on offense, and you can keep yourself in the game by not doing that.
On how the offense was successful converting on third down:
Itís tough on third and long, youíre either looking down the field to get a shot or youíre checking the ball down. Our guys just ran some good routes out there, Davone (Bess, WR) a couple times made some big plays and Brandon made some big plays too.
On his long pass to Brandon Marshall in the first half that fell short:
I donít know what happened. I literally thought I threw it hard enough, but Iíve just got to give him a little bit more, trust him and get the ball out in front of him.
On what he thought of the Dolphins defense today:
I thought they did a great job. What was it, 157 total yards they held them to? They got us the ball with some good field position in the first half, and they stopped them at the end. They gave us the ball and the chance to run out the clock.
On his general impressions moving forward after todayís performance:
I think we just need to go back to work and weíve got to concentrate. Iíve got to put the ball in better places and become a little bit more accurate and we have to come up with more catches out there, and get the ball in the playmakersí hands. Overall it wasnít pretty, but we got some things done.
On the balanced attack of the offense:
Yes, I thought Coach Henning did a great job with the game plan mixing the run and mixing the pass in, even though on some of the third downs we ran the ball and got the first down on third and six. He gave us some checks and some audibles out there with the run and the pass.
On his touch-pass to Fasano that set up the Dolphins touchdown:
We worked on that in practice, I hit it in practice, so I felt confident with the throw. Anthony was on a linebacker and did a great job with the route, and I just gave him a little bit of arch so he could get the ball and didnít have to throw it real hard to him.
On what it means to get off to a 1-0 start:
Itís great. We were preaching that as soon as we got into OTAís and minicamp. Start fast. We havenít started fast in previous two or three years, and a win right now will build some confidence.
On if there is frustration that they didnít score more points:
Yes, definitely. I think some of the third down drives hurt us when we didnít convert. If weíre in that red zone, we need to execute and convert and score some points. Overall if weíre down there, we just have to be confident, take care of the ball, and score some points.
On the difference Brandon Marshall makes to the offense:
I think he has done a great job. Thereís a lot of things out there that some of the guys donít see. When he makes blocks for our running game, makes big plays in the passing game, I just think overall he is a great addition to us.
On if he felt comfortable, because at times he looked uncomfortable:
Give them credit, they pressured at times and made us get the ball out a little bit quicker, but thatís what teams are going to do. They saw in the preseason some teams got us with defensive pressure, but we just have to stay under there and make plays while we are out there.
On how the schedule gets tougher for the Dolphins in the weeks ahead:
None of the games are easy in this league, they are all hard. We have a challenge up ahead of us in Minnesota, theyíre a great team and a playoff team, so we have to go and play our best game next week.
