Game vs. Jets: Eagles Offensive Players

QB Kevin Kolb

On how important it was for him to start tonight: "It was huge. It was my first start. Although it's just the preseason, and the starters weren't out there with me, it's still big for me. It breaks me in slowly to hopefully what I am going to be one day."

On where he is now compared to last year: "It's tenfold. Just the comfort level. The group we have out there right now, I really like. I don't know if it's the twos or what it is, but it seemed like everyone we had in there had great continuity. Everyone works hard and that's all you can ask out of those guys."

On whether he is ready to play if he gets the call: "I think [there is] no doubt that I'm ready to go. I think I have progressed every game throughout the preseason. That was my goal. If I can continue to do that, then hopefully I'll have a great career here."

On how important the preseason games are to his progression: "They are huge, because you never know what the regular season is going to be like. The biggest thing now is to not regress. I've gotten progressively better, I just can't regress when I'm sitting on the sidelines. I have to make sure I get plenty of reps in practice and keep my part."

On his confidence level going into this season: "I feel very confident; definitely as confident as I have ever been here in Philadelphia. The offense is coming smoothly, things are coming great, and the coaches are doing a great job playcalling for me so far, too."

RB Tony Hunt

On whether he was satisfied he gave everything he could in a short amount of time to learn the fullback position: "Oh yeah, certainly. I don't think there was much more I could have done and I think I got better as time went on. I guess we will see what happens with a two-week evaluation."

On what grade he would give himself on his play at fullback: "I wouldn't grade myself. I am going to be hard on myself no matter what. But, I think as far as going all out and not getting down on the situation, I think I could not have done much more."

On whether he is nervous about getting cut: "No, not really. I think I played hard. I think I played hard through the whole preseason, on special teams and in the backfield. From this point on, it's out of my control."

WR Shaheer McBride

On whether he is nervous for the upcoming cuts: "No, not really. You kind of know the situation getting into it. I knew how this was going to go. It's pretty much going to be a waiting game."

On how he will spend the next few days: "I will pretty much go about them like they are regular days. I will prepare like I am going to make the team.

FB Jason Davis

On whether he considered this as not just an audition for the Eagles, but potentially an audition for other teams around the league:* *"It's not just this game, it was the Steelers game, the Panthers game, The Patriots game and this game. It really doesn't matter. It's always an audition."

On his special teams play: "We will see. I think some things I did well and some things leave room for improvement. But, the effort is there and you can't coach effort. As long as the effort is there, they will see and know that I did everything that I could have done.
