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.
