Cawfee Tawlk | by Jay

Charlie chats with Mike & the Mad Dog on WFAN, in case you missed it yesterday. (Link is about halfway down the page). Lots of good stuff here; Charlie's expansive and lot more laid-back than in the official pressers. I'm sure there's a comfort level for him in talking to a couple of old goombahs from New York.

Charlie, on the design of the offense:

We used the offseason and training camp to create fifty 'permanent' plays. Those fifty plays we drew up and designed to go against any defense they can come up with. So this way, during the [game] week, you only have them for twenty hours, you can just gear everything to just gameplan plays. But you always have that reservoir [of fifty] you can go to.
It's no big whoop.
