Can you talk about Deshaun Watson getting his rhythm?
“We have seen flashes. Last year with training camp, OTA’s, really everything, we have seen a lot of flashes of what we can be on offense. I think Deshaun showed today he is still building this thing and still learning but he still has that in him. Hopefully, we can build on that and keep going.”
There was some good news about Chubb about his knee, maybe being less injured than it looked. Did it get back to the team and did it feel like a little boost?
“I don’t know where that information is from. Until I hear from Chubb and our doctors, I don’t know what to truly believe. If that’s true, I am very very happy for him seeing that injury. But, we haven’t heard anything specifically about the team. We will see what comes of it, we are hoping for the best with Nick, obviously. “
Stefanski said the protection was outstanding today, what did you guys like about this matchup?
“They were a great front, Jeffery Simmons, (Denico) Autry, (Harold) Landry III, all of those guys have big time plays and we try to fight our butts off. Good front. We knew it was a straight through defense. We knew if we gave Deshaun some time, they could make some plays. And they have their plays on defense, but Deshaun made enough plays in the passing game. We just kept fighting out there no matter what. If we got beat on one, we knew we had to come back and fight and keep forcing.”
What are thoughts on Jerome Ford’s performance and Kareem (Hunt) coming in here and contributing?
“Jerome had that touchdown, we did some really good things. Kareem, I think you guys can tell, he brings that energy. The crowd feeds off of it, we feed off of it in the huddle. So, it’s a really good one-two punch out there. We didn’t run the ball as well as we wanted today. They are a good defense but both of those guys’ performances we are going to need the rest of the way.”
What is your take on what you are seeing from your defense?
“They have been outstanding. A few times in that first quarter, I was like, ‘We are just going to get the ball back every three plays.’ We were playing so well, but it’s so nice. You don’t have to play perfectly when your defense is playing that well. We are striving to be as good as we can on offense, but hats off to them. They are playing lights out right now and we are going to try and take advantage of as many opportunities as we can with them.
