DAN DIERDORF
(On Philadelphia QB Michael Vick): Last week Cleveland had a very good game plan of blitzing him. It was a very natural thing to do to somebody that had very few snaps in the preseason, nursing the ribs. He's going to be rusty. I don't care that he is an 11-year veteran. I know there was an emphasis on getting off to a fast start, and what a disappointment for him to throw four interceptions in the opener. But if there was any good news, somehow the Eagles won the game. From a confidence standpoint, Michael Vick is probably not in a great place. When you start a season like that, I don't care how grizzled a veteran you are, how mentally tough, that kind of game leaves a mark. Michael Vick is going to have to play some good football for a while before that game is completely out of his mind.

And Baltimore has never been known as a "rebound defense." This is not the team you are looking for coming off a bad game to "right the ship." If Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson, Vick's two most explosive outside threats, can't play or are less than full speed on Sunday, Michael Vick will be going into a gun fight with only a knife.

(On Baltimore): Baltimore looked so good on Monday night. Cincinnati is not a bottom-tier team in the NFL that gets pushed around every week. And they were just destroyed by Baltimore. Joe Flacco looked fantastic. He's running the no-huddle offense. He's in his fifth year, so he's seen everything to make the right decisions at the line of scrimmage. He's in a perfect place and looks so comfortable running that offense. And it's still just fun to cover a football game where Ray Lewis and Ed Reed are still playing. They are a good solid, defensive football team.

BILL COWHER
(On Pittsburgh): Without a question, Pittsburgh coming off a loss and being at home, they have something to prove. Nobody wants to go down 0-2. But this is going to be another tough defense that Pittsburgh is going to face. That will be a big challenge for the offense. And the defense, Peyton Manning pretty much went through them at will the other night. So it's a chance for Pittsburgh to re-establish itself as one of the top defenses and rebound from last week.

(On N.Y. Jets): The big challenge for the N.Y. Jets will be to see if their offense was an aberration last week, or will they be able to continue to be productive week-in and week-out. This is a big challenge on the road. For the N.Y. Jets defense, the challenge comes with the speed at receiver, and will they be able to put pressure on Ben Roethlisberger. Those are the big factors for the Jets.

(On N.Y. Jets quarterback situation): The thing we all have to look for, are the Jets going to elaborate on their package with Tebow? Last week we didn't see any passes. This week the defense may have to anticipate a little bit more elaboration with that package.

Following are THE NFL ON CBS assignments for Week 2, Week 3 Week 4 (subject to change).
