    Regarding Bollinger;

    Q: What was it about him that you liked?
    A: A couple things. He had about 56-percent play time l think last year. He has played in the National Football League. I'm familiar with him; I know how he's wired. He is a coach's son; that's very important. I used to talk to guys on that last staff there with Herman Edwards. He was notorious as a grinder that spent time. He has shown that in the last three days. Usually the thing to do is to fly back and get your belongings, but right from the outset he was saying, "No, coach, I don't need to go back. I'm good. I'll stay here, and I want to get up to speed." I know how he is wired, and I appreciate that.

    It sounds like he is eager to study, learn & ask questions. I'm just hope he's equally impressive on the field.

    Sounds like right now, he's undecided who will be the No. 2 QB.

    He did pass on Koy Detmer, another Eagle who was cut this week.

    That work ethic is no surprise really, him being a Nodak boy and all...

    Wait he passed up an ex-eagle?
    I guess Koy Detmer just didn’t rank high enough on the suck-o-meter to warrant being picked up by the team, either that or with the signing of Pinkston we have filled our quota of signing players that suck.
    Other that that I did enjoy the press conference a lot
