QB Kevin Kolb

On whether the team is preparing for tomorrow's preseason game like it's a regular season game in terms of gameplanning: "We're watching a little bit (of film), but we're not getting too caught up in that. It's more about what we do, not what they do at this point. We'll build as the preseason games go on. We'll start to watch more film and gameplan a little bit more, but we don't get too caught up in that right now."

On whether the game will be different, given that the Jacksonville Jaguars are on the regular season schedule early on: "Absolutely. It sure is and we're looking down the road to see what's going to come of them. So, you obviously look at it a little bit different than what you would if it was just somebody you're not going to play."

On whether there's an out-of-conference factor that comes in to play with a young team in a preseason game and not coming out flat: "I think there's going to be a little bit more excitement. Just because, like you said, we haven't been out there yet, so we're looking to execute perfectly. We want to make sure we just keep taking those steps forward. We don't want to settle. Being flat is not going to be an issue. Guys are pumped yesterday when we were doing the install. There's obviously plenty of energy on this team, there always has been and I don't think that will be an issue for us."
