Head Coach Chan Gailey
Q: How much credit for the growth of the defense can go to CB Stephon Gilmore’s role at the cornerback spot?
A: That is all a part of it. Him being able to go out there and take a guy like (Justin) Blackmon and do a great job on him is a real credit to him but it helps our defense. Now you can do some things to help some other areas and create tight coverage in another area. That helps your pass rush because now they are holding the ball a count longer. All of that works together. You cannot say one thing does it, but when we started playing tighter coverages, our sacks started going up. All of that works together.
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
Q: Where is WR T.J. Graham now compared to where he was earlier in the season?
A: He has made tremendous strides I think and that was good to be able to connect on that deep one. I think he is really starting to understand some of the nuances of the position. Understand that it is not all about speed. There is some stuff and things that he has learned in reading coverages and that stuff which has really helped. He is really got to become a bigger part of our offense. I think he will. There has been a lot of development this year. It really has not been the production, but the stuff we work through in practice and the things I have seen out of him. He has really developed this year. We have got more of a trust there now because of it.
