On the audible call of ‘Rex Ryan, Rex Ryan, and if he can talk about that:
“We have a lot of things that are kind of in the playbook so, that’s one of them.”
On if that’s to distract him or to send a message:
“No, just communication on offense. We use a lot of terms.”
On the fact it’s unusual:
We’ve used a lot of things in the past. We’ve got a lot of unusual terms. I think we run the gamut so we’ve got to get creative and think of different things. so that one’s pretty unique.
On what he saw on the inadvertent whistle and how frustrating that was:
Just one of those plays. I don’t know really what happened. I was just kind of rolling and Danny did a good job kind of springing free, made a great play, he played great all night. He makes play after play after play. I really don’t know what happened, we were on the sideline and he sprung free so that ended up being a good play for us. I wish we could have converted it into more points.
On what the official’s call was and if they thought he was out of bounds:
I don’t know.
On if he expected it to be tough sledding out there tonight given their personnel losses:
Yes, I think we did but I don’t think that’s an excuse. I think we can play better and I think some of the things that we didn’t do well have nothing to do with missing some other guys. So, we’ve just got to do things better if we want to score more points and I always talk about just execution, us all being on the same page and I think there were a lot of plays out there where we didn’t necessarily do our job very well and you know if you don’t do it well that no one else can really make up for, you know, what you’re trying to do. So there were a lot of critical plays that we left out on the field against a good defense and I think they do a good job challenging you because they’ve got good players and they’ve got a good scheme and if you’re not on top of everything, then they make you pay. I mean, there’s a lot of plays that were just uncontested. We didn’t, you know, really have much of a chance.
On the fact they’ve had guys going down left and right at the skill positions and how tough that makes allowing Rob Gronkowski to get free:
Yeah, we lost a lot of guys and we’ve lost quite a few guys over the last 3 weeks. So I think we’ll just keep fighting and figure out a way to win and it’s good to win against a good defense. You know, any way you can get these wins I think it’s a positive so I think whoever is in there we have to have confidence in what they’re doing and Gronk obviously, I have a lot of confidence in him. If two guys go on him, then other guys have to really step in and make the plays. You know, we made some, I think we left some out there and I’ll kind of review the film, we’re playing against a good team next week see if we can do a bit better.
On if it’s good to be 10-0:
Yeah, feels good to win. I mean it’s obviously hard to get to this point. Every team goes through different things and we’ve kind of withstood a lot so I we’ll just keep fighting,
On if they’re just trying to figure things out without certain players or if it was all just execution tonight:
It was, I think, a lot of execution that we could do better. You know, we lost Danny during the game, we lost Dobson during the game, we were down to two healthy receivers so you get pretty limited quickly in the things that you can do and, you know, we still, I think, played hard, we fought hard, We’ve got to try to review some things and clean some things up and see if we can, you know, play better next week.
