Q: As a defensive player, can you tell when a guy is hurt? How does that affect him?
A: I think during the course of the game you get a sense of whether a guy is at full go or not. The only thing that changes is you want to get after him and you want to get there a little faster. But in terms of Romo and the rest of the Cowboys playing, we expect them all to play. This is a playoff game for both of us. Everything is on the line. We’re expecting their best game.
Q: What are the differences in their running game with Felix Jones back?
A: You’ll see some subtle differences. [Felix Jones and Sammy Morris] are both two exceptional backs. We have to prepare for them the same ways in terms of how they can stop and start. For us, we have to be technique-sound and go back to the same old thing – if everybody does their job, the defense will be alright.
Q: It appeared that gap control was a bit of a problem in Week 14.
A: It’s been an issue for us. This is the playoffs and we have all hands on deck. We’re ready to go.
Q: The plan all along has been to have too many pass rushers.
A: Is there such a thing as that.
Q: Too many to block. With Osi coming back, what does that mean?
A: It means everybody is going to be fresher when they’re out there on the field. He’s an all-pro player. He’s a Pro Bowl guy. When you look at what he presents to an offensive tackle, it’s a completely different scenario than the other guys that we have in. We have power guys, we have speed guys, we have our guys who can move around throughout the line. I think just the matchup, the adjustment during the course of the week, they’re going to have to prepare for another all-pro player.
Q: How did he look?
A: He’s faster than ever.
