Q: When you look at what this team did accomplish, are you excited for what the future holds?

A: Of course, especially on the offensive side. I know everyone is licking their chops to see [Victor] Cruz, [Rueben] Randle and Odell [Beckham Jr.] out there together. On the defensive side, I think it is going to be great to hopefully have another year with DRC [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie] and the same defensive backfield.



Q: You guys finished 29th in yardage allowed this year… What has to change on the defense?

A: A lot of things come to my head, but I think big plays were still something we were still very susceptible to this year. A lot of things. The one thing that I am comfortable saying right now is the big plays.



Q: Do you anticipate a lot of change on defense in terms of personnel and coaching?

A: From what I am hearing, I could see that happening. On the other side, I could see some of the coaches staying.



Q: What kind of schedule are you on? Do you think you will be ready for OTAs?

A: I think I will be ready starting at OTAs. By March, should be the time I can start curling. Right now my arm feels well and as soon as I start doing push-ups and curls, it will build back some strength into it.



Q: Are you doing push-ups and light curls now?

A: I haven’t yet. I know I am able to, but I can’t do it without the trainers’ command.



Q: Did you see enough from yourself this year in terms of further advancement and development before the injury to know what kind of player you are going to be in 2015?

A: Of course. I definitely saw a lot of potential. I felt like I was ascending pretty well. It was just a bummer. One of my personal goals was to play in the Pro Bowl, especially with it being in my backyard in Arizona, but that didn’t happen this year. I wouldn’t say I surprised myself because I knew by the type of camp I was having that I set myself up to have a pretty great year. I got to be the number one cornerback for a couple of weeks, whether it was due to DRC’s injuries or due to my play, but I felt like that was one of my goals that I wanted to accomplish.



Q: Did you have a feeling of where this team is? Are you worse than last year or do you sense something else?

A: It is tough because in this league you are only graded by wins and losses, but if you go and look at those wins and losses, we lost it by this play. You can go look at the Jacksonville game, the 49ers game, the second Cowboys game, and it is just like we were a play way from being in the ‘W’ column. Those are the plays we have to make to win games in this league.
Wow.

Having Prince and DRC is a great starting point. He's a coach that can generate a pass rush if the front four isn't getting the job done. If Spags is here I would like Rolle back on a team friendly deal. He would help make a smoother transition and allow him to stay deep. Bring back Thurmond and we can matchup up with almost all teams on the back end. We just need another safety, another LB, and DL help. I think this makes the most sense. I'm a big Spags fan. I understand his shortcomings but he has done well here with a lot less talent in the secondary. He had a lot more talent up front though.

Did you want the D-Back telling you he heard his D-Coordinator might get fired? Wow is right.
