VIDEO: Hundley on Cal

Brett Hundley discusses his performance against Cal Saturday night and how he thinks he did overall against the looks Cal was showing him...

Brett Hundley after Cal:


On having two true freshman on the offensive line start:
I tried to help the line out as much as possible. Jake did a great job communicating, just calling out, in this offense, I give it to Jake. Today, I would tell them where to go, just helping them out. At the end of the day, everything gets done. The freshman came in and did what they had to do.

On the offense getting out of rhythm at times:
Sometimes, during the goal line, there were some tight situations, formations. Mistiming, missed throws, that's what I'm saying, there are a lot of things we can get better at, and that was one of those things we can get better at.

On his performance:
I did alright. I did ok. It could be a lot better. It just shows how we can really, how me personally, can improve. We had what, 31-for-41 and 410 yards? And it looks so great on stats, you're looking at it like 'wow.' But you can do so much better than that.

On the receivers' performance:
They played their butts off. Credit to them and the O-Line. I think all of them did a great job, it was easy for me to sit back there in the pocket, when there is no one around me and I can deliver the ball where i need to. I give the credit to all them, they did what they needed to do and I got the ball to them.

On Devin Fuller:
He's a monster, he's a monster. Week in and week out, he's going to bring his A game and get over for me.

On the underthrown wheel route to Damien Thigpen:
So bad. I was swinging to my right a little bit, and I had to set me feet and just throw it a little farther, but ah man, I wanted that one so bad, we had been working on that one all week.

On if he agreed with Noel Mazzone's assessment that it was a microcosm of the season:
Yeah. And that's the thing, and that's what's driving this offense so much, is knowing that we can be that good. I keep saying, the stats look so good, but at the end of the day we could be so much better. We could be the best offense in the country. We're right there, but that's what I'm saying, it's that much and those little things are going to get us to the number one offense in the country. Doing what we need to do and converting and making those touchdowns in the red zone. Putting up even higher numbers. We could really be.

On the run game struggles:
I really just thought they brought everybody in the box. As you saw, their safeties were playing 10 yards from the ball the whole game, nobody deep. The safeties were playing run support too. They really just crowded the box and when they did that, you've got to throw it. Safeties and 1-on-1 matchups outside, you've got to let the receivers do what they do best and get the ball to them.

On if he saw that as a challenge:
Yeah, as a quarterback, it's like 'if you're going to take away the run, I guess I'll just throw it on you.' That's the mindset I get in to. If you're going to try and take one side of the ball, and take the run, you've got bring your safeties out. We're going to take a shot on you.

On if they're facing a stacked box because of the young OL and Jordon James' absence:
They can try. But at the end of the day, we have trust that they're going to get the job done. Paul Perkins, Manfro back there, they did really well. Malcolm Jones was running really well. Our offensive line did good today, so I give a lot of credit to the O-Linemen. Even the true freshman.
