Jake Brendel talks about the offensive line's performance against Virginia and how he thought the group did without Adrian Klemm.
On the offensive line without Adrian Klemm:
Klemm could still see the film and meet with us after, so it wasn't like I was the sole O-Line coach. I always go over the game at least 2-3 times to fix all the problems. For our first game together, it was a pretty good one.
On what they want to improve on:
Certain things, like technique things, in the pass pro, we might have turned our shoulders a bit, so just correcting those and I think everything else will fall in to place.
On Kennedy Polamalu with the offensive line:
He's good, good. He's this amazing amount of pure information. He's been in the game since forever and its great to have someone with the same mindset as Coach Klemm to come in at a time of need.
On their similarities:
Smash mouth football, run, hit, run until you can't hit anymore.
On Josh Rosen's sack being erased:
That was never a sack to begin with. Its always great to have an empty sack game, a zero sack game. It's good.
On the different styles from the running backs:
They're all just amazing backs, that's the one thing we've been able to get in our classes the last couple years. Soso is a taller guy while Bolu is more of a stocky guy and a power back. They're all excelling in this offense.
On having a pocket quarterback:
It's kind of nice to have a guy who's not going to run immediately. It makes our job harder but also easier to know he'll be behind us and trust us completely.
On meeting with Josh Rosen:
I meet with the quarterbacks every single week and go in their room and talk about the o-line perspective and make sure we're all on the same page.
On Virginia focusing on Paul Perkins:
A little bit, they went in to the game making it a point to stop Paul. Which is fine. That to me is a credit to the run game and to our backs and to how powerful this offense is.
On if Rosen can keep defenses honest:
Our offense has weapons at every single position so we might have a wideout who's amazing, a very solid running back, a very solid offensive line. I don't feel they can stack one area over the other.
On Rosen's performance:
It was great. Everythign I wanted it to be. He needs to fix a few mistakes and focus on this week.
On the bad snap exchange:
It was a miscommunication.
