Former Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy has joined the NBC studio crew for "Sunday Night Football" this season and yesterday participated in a conference call with Cris Collinsworth and Rodney Harrison.

Here's what Dungy had to say about the Ravens:

"Losing Coach [Rex] Ryan is going to be a blow and they're going to have to make some adjustments because I don't know that aggressiveness and cohesiveness they had on defense will be there, especially early on."

Then there was Harrison, the former Patriot safety, on Ryan's comments about New England coach Bill Belichick:

"When people make comments like that towards individual coaches or players, everyone takes offense. I don't care what anyone says, you keep that quote in your mind and you put it up on a bulletin board. I don't think that is going to make Belichick even more mad at him or make him hate the Jets more or for them to play harder, but the point of emphasis will be on that. He's absolutely right that he shouldn't go in there kissing Bill Belichick's rings or anything like that, but I thought that was understood and really doesn't need to be said out in public. I'm excited about this showdown, but I really don't think they have what it takes to overtake Belichick and the Patriots."
