QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On Fitzpatrick throwing into the tight coverages and how you balance that:
You don’t want to ever want to take away a guy’s aggressiveness but at the same time you’ve got to pick and choose your spots. I think that’s what you’ll always talk about. I even talked about that when things were going well. You pick and choose your spots. We were just all on the same page better earlier in the season.
