TENNESSEE TITANS COACH MIKE MUNCHAK

On signing Chris Johnson: “It was good news this afternoon. Everything officially got done (with Chris Johnson). I’m sure that he is very happy. I know that we are. I’m glad that we’ve got that part behind us and I’m looking forward to seeing him in town tomorrow.”

On how long it will take him to get into game shape: “It’s just getting him into town and seeing where he is at….Now, we will get a chance to get him on the field as quickly as we can. The good news is that we have ten days before we play, so that is a plus. At least we have ten days to get him to workout. We will kind of see where he is at.”

On the play of the young guys tonight: “It’s just good to see when you play a lot of guys. We didn’t play sloppy. We didn’t turn the ball over. Our defense (played well) getting five turnovers and a safety. That’s just a lot of good stuff there. We didn’t turn the ball over at all. We had three different quarterbacks and three different centers. We got all of our ball carriers out there. That has been going on all four pre-season games…I hope that will carry over into the season. That is a real positive to see.”

On the play of the defense:  “In the first half, I think we had three turnovers and a safety with a good pash rush, too. That was some good stuff from the defense.”

On the play of Jake Locker: “I was overall happy with the way that he has progressed. Each week he is getting better.”

“Both quarterbacks played great tonight. They made the right reads and it showed up on the field tonight. I think we are really ready to start the season.”

QB #8 MATT HASSELBECK

“I think we played well. Even though it’s the pre-season it was a game and we executed well. It was good to see a lot of guys play well.”

On signing of Chris Johnson today: “This entire situation with Chris reminded me a lot of what I experienced in Seattle with Walter Jones. He would basically hold out for at least three different times before the season and as a team we had to move on together but at the same time respect what he (jones) was doing. We were hoping all along that Chris will show up and its happening. I don’t think we as a team let it be a distraction. We are glad he’s back on our team and I am looking forward to some real exciting things from him. I know he’s explosive and electric, and I can’t wait to see him play real soon.”

QB #10 JAKE LOCKER

“It was great to get a lot of work out there tonight. I thought we played great as a unit. The more snaps I get as a rookie the better. I can’t wait for the regular season to start so it counts for real.”

“On the touchdown, it was great to see some green grass in front of me. Scoring is always great.”

On signing of Chris Johnson: “It goes without saying it’s a good day for this team. I’ve never seen him play before, but I know he’s exciting and a terrific player. It’s a great thing we now have him back and we are looking for some great things from him.”

DE #94 SEN’DERRICK MARKS

“It’s a totally different culture here on this team. We have a lot of new players and a new coach so everything is exciting. We are behind what the staff is doing so as a team we want to come together and practice hard this final week and be ready for Jacksonville in time for the season opener.”
