The won-loss record isn’t doing much to reinforce it, but head coach Chan Gailey and his team believes they are an improved team from last season.

“We haven’t gotten over the hump. That’s where we are. We haven’t gotten over the hump,” said Gailey. “We’re close. I told the players that we’re three, four or five plays from having this record flipped to 8-5. To me we’re a better football team than we were three years ago when we got here. Now we don’t have as many wins to show for it at this point, but I believe we can get there and I believe we will get there. And I have a great deal of confidence in the direction we’re headed.”

Ryan Fitzpatrick was also adamant that the team has improved.

“The one thing that really matters at the end of the way is wins and losses. I think we all know that,” said Fitzpatrick. “Me, especially, as a quarterback, the only thing I’m measured in are wins and losses. Not being where we want to be right now, a lot of that falls on me. I’m 100 percent fine with that. I haven’t  played as well as I wanted to play this year. Unfortunately, our win-loss record is where it is and a lot of that falls on me.  

“I think if you look at who we have, the nucleus of guys that we continue to put together and build on, I think that says a lot for where we’re headed. And like I mentioned earlier, the continuity deal in the NFL is such a huge thing, and something that I think is necessary in order to be a productive team.”
