On Mike Fafaul:
With a new quarterback, you always want to make him as comfortable as possible. I have total confidence in Mike, he takes a lot of reps in practice. Everyone likes him on and off the field. I have a lot of confidence in him.
On how they make it easier for him:
A lot of communication things. He's very prepared though, he's talked us through a lot of things we'll see.
On if the offense will change with Fafaul running it:
It doesn't, it won't change at all. We'll still run it the same way, attack it the same way. It's just a new face.
On how important Fafaul getting reps this week is:
Very important. It's always important to take more reps. The more comfortable he'll feel.
On his one throw from Fafaul:
I felt like it was a pretty good throw, he put it in a good spot. He feels we're athletic enough to make plays for him. They'll put the ball anywhere.
On if they need to go more in the short passing game:
Not necessarily, if anything, we need to give him more protection and help him feel more comfortable in the pocket.
On where he's improved this season:
Definitely route-running. I feel more comfortable. Also the tight end spot, I feel more comfortable blocking. That's become a big thing in our offense. It's coming along nice.
On being added to the Mackey Award watch list:
It means I'm being watched more, on the watch list now, and every week I have to keep improving and show I'm deserving to be on that list.
