New York Jets Transcript -Head Coach Todd Bowles, 9/18

 

On if it safe to rule out Marcus Maye for Thursday’s game…

No, not Marcus.

 

On if Josh Martin will be ruled out for Thursday night…

(Josh) Martin will certainly probably be out.

 

On what Maye has to do between now and Thursday to play…

Just move a little more, keep doing what he’s doing. We’ll judge it before the game, like we do.

 

On if Maye’s injury is a sprain…

Just a foot injury. I don’t know what hurts. I know the bottom of it has been hurting him. Just got to make sure he’s clean. 

 

On if Maye’s injury will require him to have surgery…

It shouldn’t, no, but he’ll be ready when he’s ready. 

 

On how he thinks the offensive line played against Miami…

Like I said, we lost the game, so nobody played well. It was a guy here or there but it was at every position, it wasn’t just the offensive line position. We just got to do a better job overall. 

 

On what he liked about the pressure the defense put on Ryan Tannehill…

We didn’t put enough. Obviously he was very effective being 17 for 23. We didn’t put enough on him, they ran the ball and got some runs here and there. Yards were low, there were but still some plays that we have to make that we should have made, but (Tannehill) did a good job. 

 

On what has been working for the Browns rushing offense…

Everything, they got three great running backs obviously and then the quarterback can run as well so that’s extra yardage that you don’t count for that’s hidden. You try to stop the running backs and the quarterback is going to hurt you and vice versa. They got four guys that touch the ball pretty regularly. Not to mention the reverses they can run with (Antonio) Callaway and Jarvis (Landry). 

 

On how the Browns use Landry differently from the Dolphins…

They used in a lot of different ways in Miami, I see the same in Cleveland. He’s one of the best receivers in the league, probably top one or two in hands. Very tough, fierce competitor, a lot of respect for the guy, the way he plays the game. He can go deep, he can go short, he can run the ball, he can go over the middle, he can block, he’s one of the more complete receivers that I’ve seen in a while. He’s going to be a handful. 

 

On his thoughts of Baker Mayfield and his play in the preseason…

I didn’t see much in the preseason because he is not the starter. I liked him coming out, I think he’s a good football player.

 

On the Dolphins saying their focus was to stop the run…

They did a good job. We have to be able to run the ball better and do some of the things we need to do, so that’s credit to them. 

 

On how they establish the run when teams are making it their goal to stop it…

The goal is (to stop the run) every week. Our goal every week is to run the ball, so it’s got to be a war of attrition and we got to do some to offset that but at the end of the day, we got to come back and try to run the football. 

 

On where the Browns line up Myles Garrett on defense…

He’s a right (defensive) end but they can move him around.

 

On what type of test Garrett will be for Kelvin Beachum…

It’ll be a big one. It’s some premier pass rushers. He just faced (Robert) Quinn last week, he’s got (Myles) Garrett this week, so it’s going to be a tough match up. 

 

On how he thinks Beachum did against Quinn…

He had some good plays, he had some plays he wants back.

 

On if that is the type of match up where you give Beachum help…

Depending on what we’re doing.

 

On what he thinks the Browns will dial up against Sam Darnold…

I have no idea. Honestly, if I knew I’d give it to him, but Gregg (Williams) is a very smart coach and they are a very good defense. And they are going to try and do some things to offset but we got to trust what we know and trust our rules and what we do as well. 

 

On if he knows Williams personally…

We never worked together, but I do know him personally, outstanding coach. 

 

On how much preparation is done the day of the game… 

No, the hay is in the barn by then. 

 

On if Thursday will be any different…

Thursday is a normal Thursday for the game.

 

On how Leonard Williams has played in the first two games…

So far so good. We like everything he’s doing. He’s active, he’s moving around, he’s strong. I got no complaints with Leonard. 

 

On how challenging three games in 11 days is…

It’s challenging, I think it’s more taxing for the players. Having their bodies recover and everything else but we knew what was on the schedule for a long time now so we tried to prepare and do the things that we had to do to get ready for it. 

 

On how Sam Darnold will know how to navigate through this week…

It’s football. He knows what he knows in our system and our guys know what they know on the offensive side of the ball as well as the defensive side of the ball. You get rules that you have and you have things that you do normally. You have some things that you tweak and we go along with that and as you get repetitions in practice he’ll be fine. 

 

On how Tyrod Taylor will be a challenge…

It’s a big challenge because he runs faster than most of the quarterbacks we face. All of them can scramble, but he’s an elite runner and he’s very accurate on the deep ball. He’s one of the best dual threats in the league. Some of them can throw, some of them can run, (some of them) can throw on the run and be good in the pocket. He can hurt you with his legs and he can hurt you with his deep balls. And because of his intelligence he doesn’t turn the ball over so it’s going to be tough. 

 

On what lessons he’s learned from facing Taylor in previous years…

I don’t know about lessons, but we try to do a better job at trying to slow him down more and that’s about it. 

 

On his relationship with Steve Wilks…

We both been defensive back coaches for a long time. Just meeting at the combine, the Senior Bowls and the workouts, you become real good friends. Very intelligent guy, bounce things off each other a lot. His first time being a head coach, I had some help when it was my first time being a head coach. Just making sure he keeps his head up and his nose down, working, but we have a good relationship. 

 

On if he watched Hard Knocks…

I did not.

 

On if there is nothing to gain from Hard Knocks…

I watch Power and Queen of the South and that is about it. That’s my leisure time.

 

On if he would want to do Hard Knocks…

I decline to comment. If I had to do it, we’d do it. I’d probably be the most boring person. I don’t think they want to come this way.

 

On if ArDarius Stewart is officially on the roster…

We’ll make that decision by tomorrow. I thought it was today, but it is tomorrow. 

 

On what goes into the Stewart decision…

We’re not going back and forth on it. We just haven’t made a decision because we don’t have to right now. But a lot goes into it as far as who’s on the roster, who’s on special teams, who is not on special teams, who’s injured, who’s not injured, who could be coming back. So there’s a lot of gymnastics going into it, it’s not just the wide receiver position when you look at it and say ‘Ok, plug him in.’ We had a roster when camp ended, so to do that we have to cut somebody and then we got weigh those odds as well. We’ll do that and have a decision by tomorrow.

Civil Rights Litigator Roberta A. “Robbie” Kaplan To Recieve 2018 WNBA Inspiration Award

Civil Rights Litigator Roberta A. “Robbie” Kaplan, a longtime champion of LGBTQ and women’s rights, will receive the 2018 WNBA Inspiration Award, WNBA President Lisa Borders announced today.

“The WNBA and its players have been on the front lines of progress for women’s empowerment,” said Borders. “We are thrilled to recognize Robbie, a legendary litigator, whose inspiring work and values embody what the WNBA is about.”

Kaplan, a world-class lawyer with an extensive background in corporate litigation, is well-known for her work on marriage equality. She successfully argued before the United States Supreme Court on behalf of her client Edith Windsor in a landmark case where the nation’s highest court ruled that a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violated the U.S. Constitution by barring legally married same-sex couples from enjoying the wide-ranging benefits of marriage conferred under federal law.

Kaplan also helped launch #TimesUp Legal Defense Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to women who have experienced sexual violence, abuse or harassment.

“As a young girl who idolized Billie Jean King when she beat Bobby Riggs many years ago, I know what a crucial role women in professional sports have played in elevating and empowering women and girls throughout our society,” said Kaplan. “As a result, I’m so proud to be receiving this award since the WNBA (especially my home team, the New York Liberty) has made such a positive difference for so many women.”

The WNBA Inspiring Women Luncheon presented by ESPN, which will take place on Tuesday, September 25 in New York City, recognizes individuals who have blazed new paths on the court, in the boardroom and in the community. The luncheon, which is being presented by ESPN for the fourth consecutive year, will be hosted by ESPN’s basketball analyst LaChina Robinson, and with more than 300 people from the worlds of entertainment, sports, and business expected to attend.

In addition to the WNBA Inspiration Award, the luncheon will also present the Verizon Innovative Learning Award, which recognizes an inspirational teacher who leverages technological resources and hands-on opportunities to give kids the ability to do more in this world. This year’s honoree is Giovanna Allison, an instructional coach at McNair Middle School, a Verizon Innovative Learning School in Atlanta, Ga.

Verizon Innovative Learning provides free technology, free internet access, and hands-on learning experiences to help give underserved students the education they deserve. Powered by a next-gen, technology-infused curriculum that fundamentally changes the way teachers teach and students learn, Allison has played a vital role in cultivating a dynamic learning environment and integrating the use of technology into her school. She has created after-school and weekend technology sessions, as well as an Inclement Weather Day plan to ensure no instruction is lost due to weather.

The WNBA’s Gold Partners for the luncheon include Aquafina, Budweiser, Jack Daniel’s, Nike, SAP, State Farm, Under Armour and Verizon.

At the league’s inaugural luncheon in 2006, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright addressed a group of the WNBA’s own inspiring women as the league honored and recognized the WNBA All-Decade Team. Other past honorees include former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, political commentator Cokie Roberts, United States National Security Advisor and former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, award-winning journalist Katie Couric, the 2012 female Olympic medalists of Team USA, actress and UNICEF Ambassador Téa Leoni, veteran political strategist Donna Brazile, humanitarian Dr. Helene D. Gayle, 43rd Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios and business executive and longtime champion of women’s issues Andrea Jung.

New York Jets Transcript – Head Coach Todd Bowles, 9.17

On if he ruled out Josh Martin and Neal Sterling…

Neal will probably be ruled out, still waiting on Josh.

 

On when he will have to make a roster decision for ArDarius Stewart…

(Wednesday).

 

On if there is a chance Marcus Maye will play Thursday…

It’s still too early to tell. He’s running better but we’ll take a look and see.

 

On if Maye missing a lot will factor into his decision…

Depending on how he comes back. He knows the defense very well so that will factor into it as well.

 

On how he thinks Brandon Copeland played against the Dolphins…

He’s done an adequate job coming in replacing Josh (Martin) and playing all the  special teams. We’re pleased with where Brandon is right now.

 

On how hard it is for a short week cramming information in…

It’s tough. Three games in 11 days is tough overall. But you got to rely on the mental part of it and then try to make sure they’re rested well physically and go from there.

 

On if he had looked at Cleveland before yesterday’s game or if he started from scratch this morning…

No, we looked at some. We’ve done quite a bit of work before then. It kind of runs together sometimes but you still have to take a look at it.

 

On if this type of schedule will linger for a while…

No, not really. When I was in Dallas we had a Thanksgiving Day game every year. That counted, we played some games in a short amount of time. We get a mini break after this game. We’ll get rested up and be ready to go after this.

 

On if they watched any film or reviewed anything from yesterday…

Full on ahead with Cleveland.

 

On if he reviewed anything from the game yesterday…

No.

 

On if he anticipates that the pressure from Cleveland will be notched up since Sam Darnold is a rookie…

No there is pressure if there is a veteran quarterback. I don’t think he takes pleasure whether it’s a rookie or veteran, he’s an outstanding coordinator like you said, and they have a tough defense. It’s been tough on us every time we went up there.

 

On how he would describe some of the components of Cleveland’s defense…

I think he does a great job. They disguise very well, they move around very well, they’re very fast. They have a great understanding of what they’re doing and that makes it awfully difficult for an offense and they’ve made it awfully difficult for people.

 

On how hard it is for Sam Darnold to digest and prepare for Cleveland’s defense…

He’s seen it every day of the summer with our defense. He’s seen it in the spring. It’s not like he’s going to see anything that he hasn’t seen. They disguise well, he just has to play his game and the other ten guys on offense has to do their job.

 

On if he felt that the players were flat yesterday…

No, we had energy, we just didn’t play as well as we did the week before. We were off on a play here or there and we didn’t do anything to help ourselves.

On if the penalties are happening because of a lack of discipline…

Some of it is discipline. Some of it is freakish. We try to cut down on the penalties as best we can. It’s early in the season, we’re still working the kinks out. We can’t have them in crucial times.

 

On why he didn’t have more equity on the run/pass offense yesterday…

Well, we got behind. Once you get behind, you’re trying to catch up a little bit and we probably pressed more than we should’ve. I had no problem with the game plan, we just didn’t execute everything.

 

On the offense passing it three times as much as they ran in the first half…

It was some things that were there in the game plan that we try to take advantage of that wasn’t there, when we tried to run stuff.

 

On if he sees pressure mounting on Cleveland needing a win…

We know they have a good team. It’s the NFL, we don’t look at anybody’s record, we just play week by week. We’re expecting a tough game and I know that we’re going to get one.

 

On if he has to sell that to the team…

Not at all.

 

On if he thinks Cleveland looks better than last year…

They’ve been tough. They’ve added some more talent. They’ve been tough. They’re well coached, they’re a tough football team. They’re definitely not an easy out. The pass two games they lost were nail bitters at the end of the ball game. It’s going to be tough.

 

On what he’s seen from Myles Garrett…

(He’s a) premier pass rusher. (He) plays the run very well. (He) gets off the ball (fast and is), very athletic.

 

On what Tyrod Taylor brings to Cleveland…

Leadership, stability, accuracy. (He) doesn’t turn the ball over a lot. (He) knows the offense very well. (He) can hurt you with his feet or his arm.

 

On what the challenges are of keeping him pinned in…

It’s always going to be tough. It’s been tough when he was in Buffalo so it’s not going to change in Cleveland. He still can run very fast and he’s probably faster than our front guys.

 

On if they’ve studied any of Tyrod Taylor’s tape or if they are going to go off the first two games…

You study it and you look at everything. You can’t teach speed. We just got to do a good job of being discipline and playing functional defense.

 

On what he says when a player stands up and takes the blame like Terrelle Pryor did yesterday…

There’s nothing to say about the interception. Everybody’s involved, the line, the quarterback, the receiver, the coaches, everybody’s involved. From a leadership standpoint, since he’s gotten healthy and been out on the field more, he’s been a joy to coach, he’s been great to been around, he understands things well and he’s one of them guys that loves to practice every day. (He’s the) type of guy you like to coach.

 

On if it has been a surprise because he spoke about injuries during camp…

It’s been positive even then. We moved on from that a minute after it happened. We don’t carry anything here.

 

On what he can do tangibly to cut down on the penalties…

We work on them every day. Players can do better, the coaches can do better, we work on them every day in practice. At key times it’s different people, just got to keep working on it.

 

On what he thought of Baker Mayfield throughout the draft process…

I liked him a lot. I thought he was he gritty. Had a great workout when we worked him out. I think he’s a tough player and he’s going to be a good player.

 

On his thought process with the blitz on 3rd and 19 instead of allowing a short completion…

They also would have been in field goal range with a short completion. We just missed the pickup.

 

On if that is why he decided to blitz…

We blitz because we see certain things. The blitz would have been fine if it would’ve worked out, but it didn’t work out.
