(On possibly starting in this weeks game…) "I can lean back on the preseason games as experience. I thought practice went pretty well, I threw the ball pretty well. I managed to lose my voice out there. This is the most I've talked in a long time."
(On using his previous experience as a starter to help prepare for the game…) "That was almost two years ago and I had about 20 starts. You can lean on that. This is a different offense. My experience is off the preseason and all the work I've put in the summer. I've watched how Matt [Hasselbeck] played and how he interacted with the guys during the game. You see a different side of the game from the sidelines. I look at that as a blessing; you see a different side of everything on gameday."
(On his performance from his last start as the starter of the Cleveland Browns…) "In my last start I think I only played a quarter. I don't even look at that as a start. That was a whole different situation. This is a different situation, a new beginning. [Chris] Spencer will help me out there on the field.
