Pettine speaks Dan Leberfeld

“We allowed a team to come in and be more physical than us.” – Mike Pettine on the Jets-Jacksonville game two years ago.

“Eric Smith had tight coverage and it was just a perfect throw by Romo.” – Pettine on Eric Smith getting beat for a 68-yard gain by Dallas TE Jason Witten.

“They had the entire lockout and entire off-season to prepare. I think it’s a credit to all the offensive staffs out there. They studied a lot of defenses in the off-season, during the lockout.” – Pettine on why offenses were ahead of defenses in Week One of the NFL season.

“What they have done since Jack Del Rio has been there, they thrive on winning boring. They are going to run the football. You aren’t going to see a lot of deep balls thrown.” Pettine on the Jacksonville offense.
