We're pretty old-school coaches, ... You've got to do it in practice if you're going to do it in the game. I'm not going to relent on that. If you do it in practice, you'll do it in the game. If you don't do it, you don't get a chance to play in the game.

Renaldo really pushes people around up front and he plays tremendously hard. He does a lot of things behind the scenes. There's a reason why our linebackers make a lot of plays. There's a reason why our linebackers run and hit as much as they do. Renaldo understands.

It's just a different style. And I think the fact that we're working together is kind of a Mutt and Jeff routine -- Mutt and Joe, and I'm Mutt.

[Bell's fourth-and-inches run for a touchdown and his 55-yard touchdown run when the Broncos weren't even trying to score are the killer plays, the plays that make coaches sleep on sofas four nights a week.

We had guys calling out the play at the line.
