Can you assess Brandon Peters’ game and did he do enough to earn another start?
“He really acquitted himself well. Moved the football team. Played very, very well. Yeah, he did a lot and from the first time he went in there, just feeling the deep zone and feeling the linebackers drop and taking that extra half second to take a breath and hit the checkdown just was good ball. He was good.”
Brandon himself said his biggest advancement since fall camp was communication. How much has he addressed the things you talked about before the season?
“He’s made big strides. Really good in that area. It’s been—and was good out there today.”
What did you see on the touchdown pass to Chris Evans and—
“I thought Chris made a heck of a catch on it. Thought Brandon saw it well. Good protection, and Brandon put it… you know, a little short, but Chris adjusted well to the ball and made a nice catch.”
And then the next time out he had a two-minute drill. What impressed you most about Brandon’s game today?
“Today? Well, the things I talked about earlier. I mean, just that he was playing the position. He was playing good ball. Two-minute drill, I think that’s definitely… that’s a real bright spot to go in there—what was it, his second drive, I think, and get organized and get our team organized in the two-minute drill on the field. That’s something a quarterback doesn’t usually have happen to him on his second drive of playing football but I think it went really well for him, and that was great to see.”
