“We understand in this offense, it can be anyone’s night at any moment,” said Sanders, who didn’t catch his first TD pass for Denver until Sunday night, when Manning set the career record. “I’m just happy tonight was my night.”
“It was the only name he could come up with maybe. I don’t know if his memory is as good as mine,” Rodgers said Wednesday.
Asked if Richard Marshall would start for Flowers, coach Mike McCoy said: “We’re going to wait until tomorrow and we’ll have the best 46 out on the field.”
“Last year they caught us sleeping,” cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said.
“I think we can be good — we can be really, really good,” Matthews said. “I think we deserve to be talked (about) as contenders in the West. I really believe that.”
“We want an easy game, and until we’re going to want to compete at the level we were last year then we’re going to struggle,” coach Patrick Roy said. “We’re not sharp mentally, we’re making bad decisions. Yeah, we battled back and I’m very happy about that, but we need to play 60 minutes.”

“I think it started about halfway through the year,” said left fielder Alex Gordon, whose jarring catch at the wall in Game 4 of the AL Championship Series not only left him bruised and battered, but also got him a stadium full of hat tips.
