Regarding the the status of having two weeks to prepare for the Patriots
and how those plans are going.
Childress: I think you have to be careful with 2 weeks of
preparation. You don't want to change things last minute, and we're at that
Regarding Donovan McNabb's ability to as a running threat
Childress: He hasn't done it (run) a real lot this year, but
he has that tool in his pocket and can do it when he needs to.
Regaring using Dorsey Levens as another running back option
Childress: we brought him in, and had to cut him early in
the season, last preseason game I think, but we knew we were going to do that.
And he's available. He's going to give you 12, 13 15 plays and that's what he's
going to do.
Regarding how does TO look
Childress: He worked out for us. He practiced on Monday. He
did about 8 or 15 plays. We'll have to see where he is.
Brian Westbrook's versatility to line up anywhere on the field - Which spot
creates the most problems for the Patriots linebackers?
Childress: You'd think against Vrabel and McGinest, but those
guys have such long wingspans... That would be a good match against the outside
linebackers for Westbrook.
On Donovan's comfort in the system.
Childress: he's comfortable; he's playing the game on the
other side of the line of scrimmage. He's really in tune with what's happening
on the other side of the field.
Can teams (the Patriots) do things to confuse McNabb
Childress: You can always do something that will confuse him,
but you have to adjust your snap counts, make adjustments and things like that.
On TO, what will Belichick do to cover him?
Childress: They need to see what kind of factor he is. They're
not going to change everything just because Terrell Owens is going to be out
there. He did good things yesterday. We're gonna have to see what he can do.
