Interim Buffalo Bills Head Coach Anthony Lynn
Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Opening Comments: Alright. Well this last 24 hours, getting ready to beat this team and losing my good friend Rex Ryan, it’s been challenging but I’m sure you guys have a lot of questions about the future and where we’re going with this. But right now, my focus is right in front of me, getting these guys ready to play the New York Jets and doing the best we can to win this game.

Q: With that in mind, who’s your starting quarterback this Sunday?
A: Cardale Jones right now. I mean I’m sorry, not Cardale—EJ Manuel. I just wanted to throw you off, Vic (Carucci).

Q: Why the change?
A: That was a business decision and we want to look at the depth of our quarterback position and we’re out of the playoffs so we want to see what these other two guys can do.

Q: Do you think that puts you in the best position to win?
A: I’m fine with EJ Manuel starting the game. For me, it’s always the next man up. If Tyrod Taylor pulled a hamstring we’d be going with EJ, so that’s kind of my approach.

Q: Will Cardale be active for the game?
A: I don’t know about that yet. We’re going to see how the week goes. All three guys can be up possibly.

Q: How much do you look at everything about this week and game as an audition for a head coaching job?
A: As far as a permanent coaching job, I’m really not thinking that far down the road because I don’t want to miss out on anything right now. I want to stay in the now and like I said, I want to get this team ready to go out and play the best we can to beat the New York Jets.

Q: You’ve interviewed for at least two coaching jobs last year, so you aspire to this. Isn’t that somewhere in your thought-process?
A: No I want to go out and play well. Absolutely. And I want to be the guy here, make no mistake about it. Yes I’m going to get this team ready to go and go out and play well.

Q: You want to be the guy here as opposed to another? Why wouldn’t you want to keep your options open to coach somewhere else?
A: I’m not saying that I wouldn’t leave my options open to coach anywhere else.

Q: Was EJ your preference?
A: Well EJ was next man in line. We have a depth chart and it’s Tyrod-EJ-Cardale and EJ was just the next man up.

Q: So was it your decision?
A: It was our decision.

Q: Have you seen enough of Taylor in the time you’ve been here to determine whether or not he would be your guy? Whether you’re coaching here or elsewhere.
A: What I’ve seen is a young quarterback that has a lot of potential to continue to develop and it would be interesting to have him for an offseason, to see exactly where he can go. There are some things that you’re asking him to do during the season that a quarterback’s just not going to do because there’s some trust there and you get better in OTA and mini-camp and training camp, but it’s hard to get a guy to do something, to trust it in a game when everybody’s trying to win.

Q: Like what? What is it that you think he can work on?
A: Throwing the ball in different places on the field.

Q: The right place?
A: Not necessarily the right place because I want him to throw it to the right place all the time. But throwing the ball in the middle of the hashes with some concepts, things like that. Those are things that are drilled with footwork, timing and technique. Those are things that you get done in the offseason.

Q: When you have the chance to make your case in the form of an interview to the ownership here, what are the highlights? What are the points that you would emphasize about yourself?

A: Well you’re kind of getting me ahead. I want to stay in the present right now. I mean that time is going to come, but right now, my case is just getting this team ready to play. I think that’s the best way for me to make my case, is put a team out there on the field on Sunday that’s going to play hard, fast, physical and make plays.

Q: How do you feel that your run has gone so far as offensive coordinator?

A:  Well we’ve done some good things, and there’s some things that we need to improve on, and hopefully being around here throughout the offseason, that we can get those things improved.

Q: Do you think that Rex was let go this week to give you an opportunity to show ownership what you can do as a head coach?

A: That I don’t know because it’s like throwing a player in there in the last game of the season, seeing if he can play. Well what if you put EJ in there or Cardale in there and they don’t play well for a couple quarters. That doesn’t mean that they can’t play. I don’t want to be evaluated on only one game. I wouldn’t want a player to be evaluated on one game. So, I don’t know.

Q: In respect to EJ, what have you seen in practice from him and has he taken any steps forward from what you’ve seen from him, as he gets ready to step on the field Sunday?

A: Well he looks good in practice. I mean he makes all the throws, he’s a big man, athletic, and he’s very sharp. So it’s going to be interesting to see what he does when the lights come on. But he’s looked good in practice.

Q: How much changes in your offense, knowing that he’s not the runner that Tyrod is?

A: It won’t change much. You know, we’re still going to do what we do, and EJ like I said, he’s a mobile quarterback that can do some of the things. We don’t necessarily rely on our quarterback to run the football, we like to use him as a weapon or threat, but if he chooses to keep it on a couple of read plays, then that’s fine. He’s done it before.

Q: You talked about Taylor, trying to get him to throw the ball and use the middle of the field a little bit more. Is there something that you could have done, as offensive coordinator, to get him to concentrate a little bit more on that during the season? You don’t necessarily need OTA’s for that.
A: You know, yeah. You emphasize it and you work it and you work it, and there are some concepts that we didn’t have him throwing the ball downfield. We know what we’re dealing with; an athletic, mobile quarterback [who’s] not very tall. He’s going to move the pockets, we’re going to keep him on the move and let him throw outside of the hashes where he feels the most comfortable. There are times when you’ve got tight ends dominating the middle of the field – you want him to throw the ball down the middle of the field and to do that during the middle of the season, I don’t think it’s fair. I don’t know how many quarterbacks would trust that when the season starts – and especially him, because he is somewhat cautious with the ball and that’s what we like about him. He does not turn it over. Tyrod always gives you a chance to win because he does not turn the football over.

Q: How discomforting was it for you, as a coach and someone who came here with Rex, to see that he only received just short of two seasons to establish something here? That’s a pretty short run as a head coach. You, as a part of this staff and as a coach, how did you react to that?
A: You know, we’ve obviously been – [with] him being my head coach and friend – I wanted him to get more time. But, this is a business. As much as I like to think football is a relationship business, there’s a business side of it. Ownership made that decision, and there’s nothing we can do about that now but move forward.

Q: Anthony, do you think that’s fair?
A: That’s not up to me to decide if that’s fair or not. I don’t do the evaluations of us so, like I said, that’s out of my control.

Q: And when it comes to your ascension – I mean, you started the year as a running backs & assistant head coach – to go to offensive coordinator and now this job, what do you make of the ascensions you’ve made in 15 weeks?
A: Not quite sure. It’s been a pretty unique season. I’ve learned how to adjust and adapt. I can tell you that.

Q: How did you find out about Rex’s dismissal? He is your friend. Did he tell you personally? Did ownership tell you?
A: No, Rex told me. He came and told me and we talked for a while. He gave me his blessings and it went from there.

Q: Did he inform you or ask you – or did you know at all that you would be promoted to interim coach or did ownership then come to you with that idea and then asked you?
A: I don’t know what he knew. It was a private conversation and I don’t really want to get too deep into that.

Q: Anthony, what challenges does the timing of all this present? I mean, Rex was fired on Tuesday. That was two days of lost preparation time for you. What challenges does it present that it happened a little bit later?
A: I mean, like I said, these last 24 hours have been pretty challenging because of that, because I’m still the offensive coordinator. We’re game-planning. We’re getting ready to put a plan together, go attack and beat the New York Jets. It’s been challenging and just dealing with the emotions of losing your head coach and having to call the players and let them know what’s going on. So yeah, it’s been challenging but that’s what we signed up for.

Q: Did you agree with the decision to punt the other day in overtime on 4th and 2 from your own 41? I mean, you have your own opinion. The head coach, it’s his call. But you have your own –
A: Yeah. That was the head coach’s call.

Q: What did you think at the time? Did you think that was the right call?
A: You know, the head coach made the call. We’re all going to back the head coach, regardless of what we think. I’ve been, in my mind, I’ve been an offensive coordinator for a long time. I’ve been calling plays a long time on the sidelines. It’s my job to support the guy above me.

Q: You like to be in the box calling plays. Now you’re going to be on the sidelines. How much of an adjustment is that for you? What’s the challenge there?
A: I don’t know. This is the first [time]. I’ve had a lot of firsts this year.

Q: What do you foresee being the challenge there?
A: When you’re up top – the only reason I wanted to go up top was because you can see the field. You can see things develop, you can see it happen, and you can get to the next play pretty quick and know what you want. I’m going to have to trust my eyes up top in the box. Chris Palmer is up top in the box, Pat Meyer is up top in the box, so those guys will be my eyes.

Q: Anthony, you called it a business decision to not play Tyrod. Are there any other players that you are going to keep out? Maybe Sammy [Watkins] or Kyle [Williams] that are injured?
A: No, everybody’s playing. Like I said, at that position, we wanted to look at the depth [chart], and I can definitely understand that.

Q: Did it have anything to do with the potential ramifications of Taylor’s contract if he got hurt? We’re talking thirty million [dollars] there.
A: I don’t know about that. I wasn’t in that meeting when that decision was made, so I don’t know.

Q: How did Tyrod react to the news [of not starting Sunday]?
A: Disappointed. He’s a competitor. He wants to play, but he understands.

Q: Wait a minute, what decision and what room weren’t you involved in? I’m unclear about –
A: I’m not clear about where you’re going.

Q: Well, you said, “I wasn’t in the room when that decision was made.” That –
A: That was not my decision.

Q: Which decision?
A: You’re saying to not start Tyrod.

Q: So that was not your decision?
A: That’s what you asked me.

Q: You said earlier it was “our decision,” and now you’re saying you weren’t involved in the decision not to play Tyrod. I’m just asking for clarification.
A: He pulled his hamstring. Next man up, we’re moving on.

Q: So that had nothing to do with the thirty million dollars that he gets if he gets seriously hurt?
A: I can’t speak for the owner, I can’t speak for the [General Manager]. They have to speak for themselves.

Q: A lot of players have come out and have favored continuity of keeping Rex around. What’s the challenge of galvanizing –
A: You know what, these guys – they want to play for him. They never stopped playing hard for him and we’ve never had a problem with this group not playing [hard]. I don’t see that being an issue. They’re professionals. It’s one of the most professional groups I’ve been around, so I don’t see that being a problem at all.

Q: Just to clarify, you said that Tyrod pulled his hamstring?
A: No. I said if he pulled his hamstring, it would just be [the] next man up.

Q: Anthony, if you had to just characterize – the impression we get from you and it’s, again, based upon limited opportunity to talk to assistant coaches, but you’re pretty forthcoming and you’re pretty direct about accountability with players in your position group that you are asked about. You just seem to put a lot of that accountability on those players going back to last year, whoever wasn’t in shape or whatever. Does that capture who you are in many ways? Do you bring that demand and are the players going to notice that in this short amount of time? Are they going to see anything different from you or the same guy that – I mean, you’re overseeing everybody now.
A: I’m not going to say – you know, we’ve got one week [left]. We’re not going to make a lot of changes in one week and I don’t want guys getting out of their routine, but there will be some little, small changes and it’s not because what we were doing wasn’t right. It’s just – that’s my comfort level. But I hold players accountable and I think you’re only going to go as far as your players are going to take you. I let them know right off the bat [that] we’re going to put it on them and take ownership of this thing and let’s run with it.

Q: What have the Pegula’s told you about how the interview process will take place after this game? Who it will be with, where it will be, when will it be – 
A: We haven’t talked about interviews up to this point.

Q: Is it fair to say – I mean, I was within your group but you don’t have the say over the entire team. There was a sense that, with Rex in charge, there wasn’t a high amount of accountability among players in general.
A: Hmm. That’s interesting.

Q: Well, what’s your take on it from the inside?
A: My take on it is that my group is going to be held accountable and I felt like the team was held accountable. I didn’t realize that players felt that way or individuals felt that way. I thought we were taking care of that.

Q: Do you think the details were on point, overall, within the team?
A: Yeah. And if we felt like they weren’t, it was our job to speak up and let the head coach know and [let] someone know. I’m not going to sit here and say that Rex wasn’t detailed and didn’t hold players accountable, because I felt like he did. We all do things differently in a different way. We were raised by different momma’s, so my world-view is a little different than maybe his or anybody else’s.

Q: Anthony, what is your relationship like with Doug Whaley?
A: It’s been good. I don’t deal with Doug a lot, but the times I have, it’s been great.

Q: Are you elevating anybody to your old position or is that not –
A: No. I’m not making any changes to with the coaching staff right now. No responsibilities are changing – everything is staying the same.

LB Preston Brown

Q: Was communication an issue at all this year?

A: I don’t think so. I mean it’s the NFL. We have to learn about how complicated defenses are. It’s our job to learn and we just didn’t learn all of it obviously. We didn’t have too many mistakes out there. I mean we had a lot of different guys coming off the street and going out there playing. We never bothered the way we needed to on defense.

Q: Is it too much?

A: I don’t think so. I mean it’s a complicated defense but that’s what we need to run. It’s worked for him in the past, and it could’ve worked here. We just didn’t get it right.

Q: Is it disappointing that the players on the field are the ones who make it happen or don’t make it happen, and the fact that you couldn’t make it happen in two years with Rex Ryan? How frustrating is that?

A: It’s definitely frustrating. You never want to see a coach go, especially one that we all loved here in Buffalo. You don’t want to see that happen but we know that we didn’t make it work so hopefully whoever comes here next year makes this thing work and we get it rolling.

DT Marcell Dareus

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: What was your reaction to Rex Ryan being fired?

A: I feel sorry for the situation. My heart goes out to him and his family. He will be dearly missed here in the organization. A lot of players loved him, a lot of players really cared about him.

Q: How did you guys find out?

A: I mean I found out the way everyone else found out; the news, the media.

Q: Do you feel as a group of players you guys let him down?

A: I mean I feel like we did everything in our power to play hard. We never gave up on anything and we tried our best to play the game as best as possible.

DE Leger Douzable

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: Do you have anything to say on this situation that you didn’t say already?

A: No, I’ve said everything that I needed to say. Not really going to answer questions unless they’re pertaining to the Jets this week.

Q: Well are you disappointed though with how it went down? Rex Ryan is your guy and he was your guy.

A: Yeah, I mean it is what it is. I mean I said what I said on Saturday and reiterated it yesterday and like I said, unless it’s pertaining to the Jets, I really don’t want to talk about it. I want to move on.

Q: What are your thoughts on Anthony Lynn being promoted again?

A: I’m glad he’s able to get opportunities. Been with me for a few years like Rex. I think four years that I’ve been with this guy. Great coach. Comes into work every day. Has kind of a quieter demeanor but he’s a guy that has a lot of energy. You can see it on the field, he has a lot of passion for this game. So I’m glad he’s able to get this opportunity.

S Corey Graham

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: Anthony Lynn has been public saying that players need to be held accountable.

A: Yeah. I mean we’re all in this together to be honest with you. I mean it goes with the coaches, with the players, everybody. No one person is responsible for this, it’s all of us. We all got to go out there and play hard and when it’s all said and done, we’ve just have to find ways to get victories.

Q: How dysfunctional is this whole situation?

A: It’s not that bad. It obviously sucks. I’ve never went through anything like this. It sucks whenever you lose someone, especially the head of your organization, the head of your team, a guy you look to lead you during the season, it’s tough but guys got to go out there and do their job. I mean you got to still be ready to play this game, we got a game this week. You’re not laying down, you want to go out there and win and that’s what it’s about. He lost his job, all of our jobs are on the line. I mean there’s no one person—we all got jobs to do and we’ve got to do it to the best of our ability or we won’t have a job.

Q: How do you get ready to play this game with Tyrod benched? He is a guy you’ve played with all year. How tough is that?

A: That’s different. Normally you don’t have situations like that but that’s the business side of things. They got their reasons for what they’re doing. We don’t worry too much about things like that. When it’s said and done, you’re going out there, you’re playing the game, you’re trying to play to win. You want to put the best thing you can on film because when it’s all said and done, what you put on film is who you are. So we know we’re being evaluated and we got to go out there and do our jobs.

LB Jerry Hughes

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: Can you give us your reaction to what seems to have been a chaotic 24 hours around here?

A: Just shocked but it’s the nature of the business. Just got to keep pushing forward.

Q: Do you guys as players feel that defensively maybe you let him down?

A: We just didn’t play at the level that we like to play at. As players we understand that the season didn’t go as we wanted it to. We know that we can play better so we understand that we got to be better as individuals.

Q: Did you have a sense that something like this was coming or was this a surprise to you?

A: I mean we just try to go out there and win football games. Whatever else happens, happens. It happened so we’re just trying to move forward.

G Richie Incognito

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: What is the personality of Anthony Lynn? What does he bring as a head coach, not just a coordinator?

A: Yeah, A-Lynn has played this game before at this level. So he knows the-ins-and-the-outs. He’s a super detail-oriented guy. He has high expectations of people, and like he just told us out there on the field, he wants us to go out and have fun and he wants us to grind Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mentally, and then just let it all loose and just have fun on Sunday. So that’s what we’re focusing on. I have a tremendous amount of respect for A-Lynn. You know he did a really good job when G-Ro (Greg Roman) got fired, stepping in, and you know, I’m excited for this opportunity for him.

Q: Is there any sense of resentment at all that Tyrod isn’t going to be playing? It appears to be because of financial reasons from the organization.

A: No, none at all. I think it’s—you know that’s the business side of things. At the end of the day, it’s a business and people have to make decisions, and we kind of just go with it.

Q: Rex Ryan was one of your biggest supporters at least on the outside, and it seems like he was one of the biggest reasons why you were here. Does it make it any tougher on you from a personal standpoint to see what’s happened with him?

A: You know, I owe Rex a lot. You know, he gave me the opportunity to come here and reestablish myself in the NFL and I shared that with him yesterday. I just thanked him for everything he’s done and give me the opportunity to come back and play. And yeah, I’m disappointed. Rex is my guy and like I said a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to fight with him as many ways as possible. And we just came up short.

QB Cardale Jones
Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: What’s the sense in the locker room on opportunities for guys who maybe haven’t been able to play too much this year?
A: I mean the starters are all getting ready to play. They’re all preparing like they’re getting ready to play. We don’t have a mindset of, ‘hey it’s the last game and we can just take it on autopilot.’ I mean these guys are being pros and they’re ready to play.

Q: Does Anthony Lynn seem more assertive now that he’s the head coach?
A: He seems like the same coach. He has more authority and more responsibility but he seems like the same guy. I think he handled it pretty well for the first day.

Q: How do you get a feel or sense of the other guys on the field knowing that you’re an injury or opportunity away from playing?
A: Coaches did a great job of getting me a couple of reps today. Throwing one-on-ones and throwing routes where the receiver is and just being in the huddle, taking control. I think I’ve got a good feel for it so far but only a game will tell.

QB EJ Manuel
Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: How did you find out that you were going to get the start this week and what was your feeling and response?
A: Yeah, I was with my parents and yesterday was my mom’s birthday so I was with them and my sister in Virginia. Coach [Chris] Palmer called me and he let me know before I found about Coach [Rex] Ryan and everything. I was just excited to get an opportunity and very appreciative.

Q: How do you look at this? It’s just one game and there’s only so much you can do in one week. How do you look at this opportunity?
A: It’s a great opportunity to go out there and win. I think there’s no better way to end this season – even though it’s not what we wanted to finish – but to finish 8-8. Obviously, we’re losing Coach [Rex] Ryan and Coach Rob [Ryan], so as a team we want to band together and show that we still have unity. For me, personally, I just want to go out there and execute and do my job.

Q: At the same time, you and Tyrod [Taylor] have a close relationship. Does this make the week awkward in any way?
A: I mean, of course any time something like this happens – I know when I was a starter and I got replaced, it was awkward for me. Even coming to practice the next day, it just felt weird. I’m sure it’s a little different for him. At least for me, it was good to get back on the saddle and get a chance to get some time with those receivers and tight ends. It was good for me. I felt real good. 

Q: I know it was only practice through the course of most of this year, but where do you feel that you’ve made some strides in your game since the last time you were in a regular season setting?
A: I think coverage recognition is probably, night-and-day, much better. That’s an area where I needed to grow a year ago, two years ago, three years ago. Going against our first team defense every single day for the last fifteen, sixteen weeks has really helped me out tremendously. That’s probably the biggest thing.

Q: EJ, how was it explained to you – the reason for the change this week?
A: I didn’t get a reason. Coach Palmer told me I was starting and I was excited from there on.

Q: What’s been the reaction in the locker room about Rex being dismissed?
A: I think guys are still focused on the game. Obviously, it’s different because he wasn’t there this morning. We don’t see him, obviously, at the team meetings and things like that. You don’t see his truck when you in in the morning, so that part is different but we understand that it’s a business and we understand that we have to go out there and win on Sunday.

Q: What do you think of Anthony Lynn as a possible head coach?
A: Coach Lynn is going to do a great job – whether it’s [as] a head coach or whatever position it is, he’s in. Next year, I think he’ll do a great job.

Q: On the outside, there seems to be a big difference in personalities between Rex and Anthony. Is that the feeling inside, too – that there is a difference in personalities?
A: They’re different people, so of course there’s always going to be a difference in personality. Coach Ryan is someone who, as a player, you’re excited to play for. And it’s the same with Coach Lynn. He’s obviously been a running back coach, so I’ve been around him a lot since he’s been here last year and this year, so I know both of them very well. Obviously, with [Anthony Lynn] being an offensive guy last year, us offensive guys have a little better rapport with him.

Q: In particular though, his attention to detail – there seems to be a high end for Anthony. He’s really been particular with –
A: Definitely. He coached his backs that way last year and I think that’s why we’ve had one of the best rushing attacks in the league the past two seasons. He’s definitely all about attention to detail, even when we’re on scout team. He still coaches us on the offensive side. Sometimes, coaches just kind of let you go and do your own thing but these past fifteen weeks, he’s still coaching me, still coaching the [offensive] line, still coaching the running backs, very specifically.

Q: EJ, what do you want to get accomplished in this game. With a chance to put something on film, what do you want to show?
A: Yeah, I just want to win. That’s the biggest thing. At the end of the day, everybody can play in this league. Everybody can throw. I think quarterbacks are based, or you’re judged, off of winning. At the end of the day, that’s the most important thing.

Q: EJ, as focused as you are on this game this week, is it hard not to think a little bit about what this game this week could mean for your personal future?
A: I don’t think this one game is going to change a lot. Obviously, people will go back and watch the tape and think like that, but you can’t base one game off of one opportunity. I understand the opportunity, I know it’s a big opportunity for me, and I’m excited about it.

Q: EJ, have you talked to Doug Whaley or ownership about you starting this game at all?
A: I haven’t.

Q: How about your future and –
A: I haven’t.

Q: Do you plan to play the whole game? Has there been any discussion of you and maybe Cardale [Jones] splitting time?
A: That’s my plan right now, [is] to play the whole game.

DT Kyle Williams
Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: This is not the first time that you’ve had to deal with days like this, Kyle. How does this one sit with you?
A: They’re always tough, you know? Having been around, it’s kind of become old hat – not just here, but around the league. It’s what you see. The way that I’m wired and the way that I work is, initially, what could I have done differently, what could I have done better? So, you know, tough day for everybody.

Q: Knowing that there’s going to be a new start in some way, shape or form here, how does that impact you as a veteran on this team as far as your future playing career is concerned?
A: I don’t know. That’s the best way I can answer that. I don’t know. It takes two to tango, I guess, depending on who our coach is and what they want to do and if they want me a part of it. We’ll see. It’s kind of hard to answer that.

Q: How discouraging, though, are restarts. You’ve been through them and what goes through your mind?
A: I guess it just depends on what our full plan is. Are we going to deconstruct and start at the bottom or do we feel like we’ve got some good players and are we going to try to add to that? I don’t know. That’s way above what I do. It’s not something that I can worry about or lose sleep over and we’ll just kind of roll with the punches and see where we land.

WR Robert Woods
Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Q: Is this a chance to show and prove that Anthony Lynn is a guy that can be a head coach in this league?
A: I think so. We’re just competing and trying to win. He’s our head guy right now. He’s been our [offensive coordinator] so he’s been running it right now. [We’re] just trying to bring our defense along with us. Hopefully, it’s an audition but at the end of the day, we’re trying to win and finish the season.

Q: Tyrod [Taylor]’s been your guy the last two seasons as the starter and he’s actually coming off, statistically, his best game as a member of the team. To see him be told that he has to take a seat for what looks like financial reasons, how disappointing is that for you as a teammate for him to have to go through that, and do you think it’s fair?
A: I don’t think it’s fair, but that’s the business part of it. It is what it is. That’s part of the game. There’s money involved and there’s playing involved. That part is the money part and that’s their decision and all we can do is just go out there, play with EJ [Manuel] and win the game.

Q: It’s not just a decision that affects one person, though. You’re a free agent and you’re going to be playing with a quarterback you haven’t worked with quite as much as Tyrod as your starter. Do you think it’s a disservice to the rest of the team and not just Tyrod?
A: Yeah. I mean, it’s like I said. At the end of the day, you’ve just got to go with the flow. Whatever decisions are made, you’ve got to be able to adjust and make plays on the fly. Whether it’s Tyrod or EJ – like [Anthony Lynn] said, we’re looking at it like it’s an injury. Tyrod went down and EJ’s the next man up. We’re trying to have that mindset for it and still win the game with EJ.
