MR: A lot of things. He's bigger and stronger and faster than I thought he would be.
Is Jones what the Falcons needed to improve?
MR: I think so. I think [Jones], along with Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez, Harry Douglas in the slot and Mike Turner in the backfield... . It's going to make it difficult for teams to defend us.
How worried are you about the Falcons' defense after falling to the Packers 48--21 in last season's playoffs?
MR: That night didn't turn out the way we wanted it to on either side of the ball.
How good were the Packers?
MR: I don't think anybody was going to beat them. Aaron Rodgers played, quite honestly, one of the best playoff games I've ever seen a quarterback play.
What can we expect from rookie quarterbacks after missing so much of the off-season?
MR: It's hard enough to do it when you have a normal off-season. I think this adds an extra level of difficulty. For me, it would have been extremely difficult to come in without having the OTAs and the minicamps.
Are there ever times you forget the play when you get to the line of scrimmage?
