Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson: That's kinda like his finishing move, when he puts his head down.


Chiefs P Dustin Colquitt: Coming back off an injury, everyone is wondering if he was going to be the same guy. Man, I thought he was better. I thought he was more explosive. Some of his decisions, I think he got wiser with.
