"Toward the end of the year last year, they were playing as well as any safety tandem in the league," safeties coach Steve Jackson said of LaRon Landry and Doughty. "The fortunate part is in the meeting room they are used to communicating with each other, so it's not like they don't see each other or talk to each other or communicate. ... One guy likes to talk and the other guy likes to listen. Fortunately, the one guy who likes to listen (Landry) is the one with the best hearing."

"Everybody is so close," Gibbs said. "At this time of the year, Coach Bugel is probably spending more time with the football team than he does with his own family, and so it's like family, you have two families . . . . The thing that you have there is that you get real comfort from all that are around you who care about you."
