"We're having a heat wave. Having a game at 1 o'clock; if you want a great game and the team to run for 1 ½ hours, putting the game at 1 pm and whatever time the one against Philly is (won't help). … I'm just saying we all want to perform and play well for the fans, and for them to come and make the game. Wednesday, 1 pm? I hope it won't be as hot as it has been recently, but yeah … it's not what you want."
