COORDINATORS ON THE OFFENSE, DEFENSE & SPECIAL TEAMS
Below are takeaways from Thursday's media sessions with Offensive Coordinator Gary Kubiak, Co-Defensive Coordinators Andre Patterson and Adam Zimmer, and Special Teams Coordinator Marwan Maalouf.
Kubiak on the need to improve time of possession:
"I think it's important any week, not just this week. But two of the games that we've held onto the ball, we've played pretty well – Houston and Seattle. But time of possession comes from extending drives, making third downs, those types of things. And one of our weaknesses has been we've gotten ourselves in a lot of third-and-longs. So when it's third-and-8-plus in this league, it's hard to be successful. That's how people get you off the field. So really our focus is keeping ourselves on schedule and on third downs, and I think when we've done that, we've played pretty well from that standpoint. That's a big point of emphasis. Easy to talk about, hard to go do. We're working on getting better at it.
Patterson on Jalyn Holmes at defensive end:
"He gives us a different element. He's a big body, so playing over there at left defensive end, he can do a good job of handling tight ends in the run game, he's physical against tackles, he throws his body around. He gives us a different element than all the other ends we have in our system right now. So he's gotten better every week, and I'm very pleased where Jalyn is right now."
Zimmer on Troy Dye's return to practice:
"It's great to have Troy back. He's running around good, he's practiced just like he was, kind of before the injury. He feels pretty comfortable in the defense, and I'm excited to get him back. [I was] excited with his development when he got hurt and was real impressed with how he finished the [Colts] game [after] being hurt earlier in the game. He finished the whole game and then had to be on IR for a few weeks. He's been great in the meetings, attentive and been in every meeting and still staying in tune with the defense. I think he's done a nice job this week, and I'm excited to see him get back if that's what we decide to do this week."
Maalouf on assessing special teams during last week's bye:
"We kind of dive into each phase and try to improve certain things, try to build on certain things. There's always going to be room for improvement, even if we're doing great in one phase, we're always going to try to find another edge. Possibly move some guys around as well and try to get our best group of guys out there. Overall, I think we definitely need to get our return game going a little bit more. Hopefully we'll have some more opportunity to do that as well. This week could be a really good week to do that. The weather conditions, I think, will be a factor, so hopefully we'll get some chances to do that."
