On the play of the LBs Monday:
Denzel had an awesome scrimmage. I am pleased with the linebackers. Jermaine Grace played well. He has to finish plays but he was as productive as anyone.
On Chick, Corn Elder, and Artie Burns wearing black jerseys:
As for black jerseys, it’s did you do your job, did you finish your plays. It was based on the scrimmage. We haven’t adjusted it yet. We created a real high standard for that. It’s not something minor. We make it at a high level. A few others were close but just fell short in some areas.
On how to get one:
How do you grade out and how many plays do you make and how hard to you play? Did you finish at a high level? If you don’t turn and run to the ball, that’s not our standard.
On those three players from Monday:
Artie had a strong performance. He made a lot of plays. Corn was excellent. He was a playmaker in the scrimmage. Chick made a lot of plays. He’s doing an unbelievable job doing his job every play. He’s making more plays than he ever has.
On the deepest position:
The corner position now. There hasn’t been much separation between the top five guys. There are a couple guys creating some separation with this last scrimmage but it’s probably the position we have the most competition at.
On the D-Line Monday:
Pierre and Chick did well. Calvin did well. Courtel did a nice job. Chad did some nice things. Quan did a nice job rushing the passer.
