Head Coach Norv Turner
On various players being placed on injured reserve because the season is coming to an end:
“No, I think the guys that we have put on Injured-Reserve are guys that would not play in the next three weeks. We just have to get some guys in here who can play. It is a real challenge when you have a guy like (linebacker) Gary Guyton and you expect him to play. You have to get him ready. He got here last night around 9:00 p.m. and we have to get him ready to play in a game on Sunday.”
On hopes of Dante Rosario catching the game winning catch against Carolina, as he did in 2008:
“That would be great. It was a wild game and a desperation play. Dante made a nice play on the ball. This team we’re getting ready to play presents a lot of different challenges. First of all they are very talented on offense. They make a lot of big plays. They have kind of found a rhythm in the last month. Cam (Newton) is playing as well as he has played over the four or five game stretch right now. They present some real challenges in terms of preparation. It is about getting a good start today and having a good practice tomorrow and Friday and handling the differences in terms of the option and things they do. It is a real challenge to prepare for.”
On Danario Alexander having more receiving yards and touchdowns since he was signed than Vincent Jackson:
“I don’t think it was the fact that he just jumped in here. He was here for about two or three weeks before we actually played him in a game. Number one, he had to get healthy. Number two, he had to get a feel for what we are doing. He is a receiver that fits a style of what we do. I think it is silly to compare a guy here to someone else and what their stats are because what we do is totally different than what someone else does with a guy. I do like the production Danario Alexander has had.” Read
