On if anyone told him why Clinton Portis did not play more against the Ravens on Dec. 7:
"No. The only thing that happens as far as I am concerned is people come to me on the sideline and they say, 'Hey, you're in.' When they tell me to go in, I go in, when they tell me to come out, I come out. That's all I know."
On what the offensive line being banged up means for the running backs:
"It doesn't really change anything for me. We will probably have to help out in protection a little bit. Other than that, it is an opportunity for the young guys, other guys, to step in and play a significant role. Hopefully it will be good for them."
On what the team needs to do in the final three games:
"Really we have to capitalize on mistakes other teams are making. That is something we have not done a whole in these last four or five weeks. We have to learn to play consistent football and that is something we have not done."
On if the team's confidence is shaken:
"Not in my mind. I don't think so. I am still optimistic about the season. We still have a chance to get to the playoffs. I am approaching it like everything is still out in front of us, and that is what we have to do."
