On what makes Anderson so good on special teams: "Well, he's a really, really instinctive player, first of all. He plays with a tremendous tenacity and he's a smart player. He's just a really good player. He kind of comes batteries included. He's just ready to play. I remember when we looked at him on film for Minnesota when he was on the practice squad and the first time (general manager) Howie (Roseman) showed me the film, I went, ‘Gee whiz, that guy. We can get this guy?' He was just all over, a terror. It was our good work and good fortune that we have him. So, we want to parlay that now into some more production that he's given us and he's a leader. He's a leader and he's a leader by example. He's one of those guys, really confident, yet humble and that's exactly what you want in a person or a player."
On whether Anderson will play in every phase of special teams: "Yes. He'll play everything."
On whether there is any concern about Anderson having missed the preseason and coming right into game action: "I think we would like it the other way, but you know, when we picked him up two years ago, he hadn't played in seven weeks and we put him right in. Would it be better if he had? Yeah. But if it was a concern, I don't think our trainers or our doctors would have cleared him. That's how I look at it. They say he's 100 percent. If he wasn't, we'd wait a couple more weeks until he was."
On whether the team is seeing the results of P
On whether that was Henry's best game as an Eagle: "Oh, way by far it was his best game. I thought at the end of last year, he was having some pretty good games. His last four games were pretty good and the game against the Cowboys was good and we had a protection problem and gave up a (block). So, statistically, he didn't have a good game or he had an average game, but he had been punting better and better. I mean, he still didn't have the job won. Mat McBriar was right in there or had a greater shot maybe even, initially. He's punting better and he's doing better. He's just got to do it consistently and I think he will."
On what he sees in Henery that leads him to believe he will be a great kicker: "I think his form, his overall consistency and the way he strikes the ball. I think his mentality is such too that things don't weigh on him. It's pretty hard to be neurotic and do something like that. You've got to have steady nerves. He's almost like a jeweler; everything is very, very fine what he's got to do and he's got to have the right mentality for that. There are guys that are complete neurotics that can still kick a football, but I think his disposition adds to that talent and he's really consistent. He's got great get-off time, he's got great elevation on the kick. His operation in the elevation of his kick should be enough that we should never have a kick blocked. Now, he might screw one up and slow down or kick it low, but the way he consistently (kicks), those are big. When (blocks) happen, there's a potential of a 10-point swing, because they have the chance to scoop and score and that gets ugly. Not that it happens often, but you don't want a guy that it can happen to. You're sitting there wondering, ‘Is this going to turn into seven points for them because the trajectory's like that?'"
On what he saw from his returners CB
On whether it was Johnson's fault that a punt was almost touched by the Eagles: "I don't even know if it was his fault. He might have been screaming it and yelling it. (FB) Stanley (Havili) might not have heard it, but we were close. When they challenged it, it wasn't the case. And then (Browns P Reggie Hodges) hit another poor one where it hit their guy first and then it went out of bounds; we couldn't get to it. I thought he did a good job managing things."

On former Eagles special teams coach John Harbaugh becoming the Ravens head coach in 2008: "I'm partial to special teams coaches and I think, in general, there's different levels of capability, there's different levels of intelligence with every coach. That's a broad spectrum. But just taking that out of the equation and saying that's an even whether the guy's an offensive guy, defensive guy, special teams guy, that part of it's an even, I think the training for special teams is the greatest avenue to be a head coach. It's more of an administrative position. It's more of a position where you're dealing with personnel and players from every part of the team. Years ago, I had a chance to be a secondary coach early in my career and probably made a wrong decision in terms of my overall aspirations, but I didn't want to be the secondary coach because I thought the best avenue to my goal, which was to be a head coach, was special teams. The problem was, I think I was the only one that thought that. I think there's a culture, even with as good as John has done, because in the last five years, the guys that have been hired in the last five years, no one has come close to doing as well. In fact, some places have hired three guys since he's been hired. His last year, or his second to last year, he still had all those capabilities. I think he's made a big mark because over the last five years or before he was hired, no special teams coaches were ever even interviewed. Now, there were certain situations, like I got interviewed in Buffalo but I was on the staff. No one from somewhere else. So it never happened. I remember, (Ravens owner Steve) Bisciotti, even in the initial interviews saying this is really rare, but we want to do this and that. So, it was an aberration to do it but I think what he has done, just this past year, I think there were three coaches interviewed for head coaching jobs that were special teams coaches. That would have never happened without John's ability to pioneer to the owners, to the general managers, that these guys can do it too. Even in Bill Walsh's book, he says it's the best position to move from to be a head coach. Bill Walsh says that and he had nothing to do with special teams. Of course, he's a smart guy, but he recognized the administrative, the overall, the detail to getting something from every player, getting players to do stuff that they really don't want to do. It's a constant day-in, day-out training on the job to be a head coach."
