Can he nonetheless throw it, yeah, but it surely’s been fairly secure and it has been, you understand … cool catching shallow [routes] and attempting to take it to the home.

So I am simply enthusiastic about the best way we pulled collectively. Like I mentioned, we got here up quick; however we fought [Sunday].”
