On Chad Ochocinco:

Look, he’s working hard at it and we’re all working hard at it. I’d say there’s definitely a lot of improvement that we’ve made and we’re going to continue to make. I have a lot of trust and confidence in him; I don’t lack for that at all. He didn’t get a lot of opportunities yesterday, I think that’s the reality of that game. There were a lot of other guys that were in there – Aaron was in there a lot, Gronk was in there a lot, obviously Wes and Deion have been out there, so that was just primarily the way it turned out yesterday. How it turns out when we play Pittsburgh, I have no idea, but it will probably be pretty different there too. Like I said, I have tons of confidence in Chad.

On the "most clutch" player he's ever played with:

Oh God, we’ve had so many guys over the years. Look, guys that I played with on those championship teams were pretty clutch – David Patten, think of all the critical touchdowns he’s had in his career; Troy Brown, Wes Welker, Randy (Moss), Kevin Faulk. I mean, Kevin Faulk…is probably the most clutch player I’ve ever played with. He is a remarkable player, and he’s made so many big plays in big games for us. Matt Light, he plays his best in the biggest games against the best opponents, so he’s as tough as they come also.

On whether Faulk will be back on the field this year:

Yeah, I think so. He’s on the team. I know he’s on PUP, this is the week where guys can start coming off PUP. I don’t know what coach Belichick is going to do this coming week but it’s nice that he’ll be out there and ready to be part of the team. I know he’s itching – every time I see him I keep saying there’s a countdown for him. I’ll love seeing him out there and his 33 jersey out on the practice field, so I hope that comes very soon.

On his right arm, which he had wrapped during the game yesterday:

Just a little precautionary, nothing to worry about.
