New York Jets Transcript – Head Coach Todd Bowles, 9.13

On why Dakota Dozier did not practice…

An excused absence.

 

On what did he think of Jeremy Bates first game as the Jets offensive coordinator…

He was fine. Every play is not going to be successful, but I like the way he called the game, I was very pleased.

 

On if Jermaine Kearse going to play on Sunday…

We’ll see at the end of the week. 

 

On if Marcus Maye is not going to play…

We’ll see at the end of the week.

 

On what do you like about what Brant Boyer brings to your coaching staff…

He’s extremely intelligent, very good technique coach, very good technician. Brings a lot of fire to us, understand the game real well. 

 

On if he feels like their specials teams can now be a weapon…

If it works obviously, everything not going to work all the time. As long as we’re sound and trying to do the right things, you want to have all three phrases help in winning the ball game and everybody helped out Monday.

 

On what is the key to stacking wins… 

Just consistency trying to get better every week, keeping your head down, doing the things that got you the win the week beforehand and just not looking up.

 

On do you worry about guys getting too high after a big win…

No, you don’t. It’s a 24-hour rule for us and we just go on to the next game right there and (if) I see them not working, I’ll make sure their put their work in and get it done, so it’s not a big deal.

 

On how much of a hurdle is it for the team to learn to win consistently…

It’s not a learning hurdle, it’s just day by day and you practice and you go week by week. You don’t try to put together a streak, you try to win the day and then tomorrow comes and you try to win tomorrow and then you work your way up to Sunday. 

 

On questioning how Quincy Enunwa would play after missing a year…

Well, you see him in the spring, first thing you want him to be healthy, once we got him healthy you see him in practice and doing everything the right way, your confident out there and then when you see him in pads for the first time, you’re wondering if he could take the hits and everything else. Once he shows he fine you kind of let it go. He’s worked his tale off to get to where he is right now and we’re happy with it. 

 

On Steve McLendon message to the team after the game about taking it a week at a time…

We have to take the whole season like that. It’s week to week.

 

On what does McLendon mean to this team, even though he may not play one of the “sexy” positions on the field…

I think for him, in his mind, he’s still a sexy guy (joking) (laughter). He’s a very vocal, he’s been around, he’s been on some winning team in Pittsburgh and brought a lot of leadership to us and helped out the younger guys a great deal. It’s great to have guys on the team speaking other than the coaches.

 

On what does he attribute the improved communication on defense to…

It’s just working together, it’s got to improve every week, it wasn’t ideal the other night. It worked out and they’re talking more, it’s just something we got to keep working on and keep grinding at. 

 

On if players are hesitant because they’re unsure themselves…

You got to get comfortable at your position first and then you got to get comfortable with the guy next to you. Communication is something that is addictive, once everybody starts talking and believing in each other it gets easier. 

 

On how much of a challenge do the Miami edge rusher present…

Both premier edge rushers, both cause a problem. Obviously, they got them down there, when they rush four those two will seem like your rushing six. They’re going to create a big problem, we’ve got our work cut out for us.

 

On what is the advantage of having a group of skill position players that are good instead of one stand out…

It’s just production, I don’t know if it’s an advantage or disadvantage. We got guys that can do different things. You like to spread the ball around regardless of who you have and that’s what we try to do.

 

On what you there when Cameron Wake first came to Miami…

Yes, I was. I coached him.

 

On what stood about Wake…

Very explosive, he’s a guy that takes care of his body. He may be in his 30s, but he keeps himself in shape like he’s in his 20s. He’s in prime condition and he’s a physical specimen and he is explosive off the edge.

 

On Kenny Stills…

He does everything he goes underneath, he runs inside routes, he runs outside routes, he’s been an outstanding player since (DeVante) Parker been out, he’s really stepped up for and he’s making a lot of plays.
