Dan Patrick: "I can get 10 wins out of you guys, right?"
Kevin O'Connell: "Obviously led by the Packers, I think our division is going to be a really, really strong division. I've got a lot of respect for Dan Campbell and that coaching staff. They've improved their roster, they know how to build a tough football team. Coach Eberflus is there in Chicago with a good young quarterback... Our division, where it's at right now with Green Bay being the standard, we've got a lot of work to do in the division. We have 3 home games in the division in our first 6 games. Lot of work to be done early, we're looking to try to come out of the gates as fast as possible."
