"They're all really good players," Phillips recently said, via the Houston Chronicle. "We can be awfully strong."
"The two guys we got (Mercilus and Crick) are good players who fill needs," Phillips said. "They're our kind of guys — talented with great work ethics. They're a lot like the guys we got last year."
"Connor's unbelievable," Phillips said. "He's just relentless. So is Brooks. They just wear people down. It's hard for two guys to do every rush, so if you have a third one, it can make a difference. It helps keep them fresh and from being hurt. Some of it will be rotation.
