Turner reacts to 2012 schedule - Christopher Smith
"From our team’s standpoint and our fans’ standpoint, I don’t know that you could put together a more exciting schedule when you look at the number of great teams we play and when we play them. It presents some great opportunities for our team. I like the timing of the schedule coming out this week. We start our offseason program on Monday and I think it really gives our guys something to look forward to. It should give our guys great motivation."
