"I don't think we're just taking this about Tommy Rees. I think any quarterback has got to do a great job of taking care of the football.""He's stronger. He has a great understanding of our offense. Again, as long as I think he continues to continue where he picked up where he left off last year making good decisions, we'll be in good shape.
"Tommy is learning. I think when you sit back and you watch the game with such great knowledge, and the combination of having played the game, when you get a chance to see it unfold, I think it's just another part of that developmental process.
"He took every mental rep, even though he didn't get them in the games, he was engaged in practices, he got tons of reps, got a chance to really see the games unfold.
"That year, although it wasn't one of a number of snaps, he was in critical times, influenced games, and helped us have an undefeated season. He learned a lot last year.""They're a little bit different. But the offense will still have the same components. We're going to need to do some things better obviously.
"We're going to have to throw the ball more effectively. We think Tommy is somebody that can bring that. He has a great knowledge of our offense. We're excited about that end.
"Probably won't be running as much option with Tommy, but we'll do things that suit him. Again, we really like the way he physically has developed. He's stronger. He's running well. I think you're going to see the very best in Tommy Rees."
