“I think Coach (Brian) Schottenheimer is a great coach. I think he knows what he’s doing. I think he knows how to coach QBs extremely well. Got a lot of faith in that. And, like we said, we’ve had some ups and downs, but the season’s not over yet. I’m in that room most of the time, and I listen to what’s being taught, what’s being coached and how it’s being coached, and I’ve got full faith and confidence that he’s doing an outstanding job. We’ve just got to continue to get better as we go, and I think we will.”

“Well, I’ll just say this: We are this deep into the season and we’re playing Florida and we’re in a very meaningful game. We know if we win the next three games, we’re in. Obviously, Florida wins the next three games, they’re in, or however many they’ve got left. We’re the two teams in the East that kind of control our destiny. So that’s where you hope to be. To me, there’s still a lot to be written this season. It’s just a little past halfway. So I’m not ready to say what kind of year it was for quarterbacks yet or not.”
