"It was a good call by the coach," said Wright. "I didn’t leave my feet this time so it gave me the opportunity to get the sack. It’s not very often that you get the opportunity where you’re coming from the blind side and the quarterback doesn’t see you coming. I’m just happy that I got there before he got the pass out."

"(Charlie’s) very in control and makes good decisions," [Turner] said. "Our offense fits him. He left and went to play in Seattle and came back here and was just a more mature guy. He makes good decisions getting the ball out of his hands quicker, and has showed he’s an accurate passer."

Preseason victory far from impressive - Scott Bair
"I don't think we played as well as we've been practicing," Turner said. "It's a great reminder for me and all of our players. We have a lot of players trying to get on the same page. ... It just shows me that we have a lot of work to do."

"I want the best guy," Turner said. "Shareece is really playing well there, and Marcus missed some time (because of an injury) but has caught up quickly. They're going to have a heck of a competition.
