WR Darius Slayton -- November 20, 2019
Q: On his performance against the JetsÖ
A: One, great throws from Daniel. He makes it easy, making a lot of good timing throws. Two, just continuing to work on my craft, continue to work on my routes, work on my hands, getting separation and even in tight windows making strong catches.
Q: How much have you seen the play calling going in your direction with you being able to produce over the last few weeks?
A: Some of it definitely. Obviously, with Sterling Shepard being out, multiple guys have to step up and play a bigger role, including myself. Iíve been fortunate to be able to make some of those plays.
Q: Daniel was just saying itís as simple as getting you the ball more. Whatís your reaction to hearing that the quarterback is focusing on you and wants to get you the ball more?
A: Itís exciting. Obviously, you want your quarterback to have a lot of faith in you as a receiver. I think thatís how you build a rapport with quarterbacks. Every time the ball leaves their hand, making sure it gets completed. I think that helps them have confidence in us. We know they are going to put the ball there, so at the end of the day, itís on our end.
Q: How are you looking at the last six weeks of the season?
A: We just want to finish strong. Obviously, we want to go 6-0 the rest of the season and finish out the year 8-8 and finish out the year strong.
Q: During the game in the huddle, if you see something, do you go back to Daniel and say, Ďhey, listen, look for me here.í Are you aggressive like that in the huddle?
A: Not too much during the huddle in the game. Sometimes we come to the sideline and Dan might have seen something different than what I saw. We are just trying to get on the same page more so than anything.
Q: Where have you seen your biggest growth since game 1?
A: Just confidence, and the plays. You learn every week. Iím coming to learn in the NFL you learn something new every week, a different defense it seems like. Just confidence in my ability and the offense.
Q: How much has your chemistry grown with Daniel over the season?
A: Tremendously. There is nothing like game experience. Getting out there and playing against NFL competition, I think itís grown a lot.
Q: How did your first touchdown feel? You beat an accomplished corner in Xavier Rhodes. Did you feel like, ĎIíve arrived, I can do thisí?
A: Not so much Iíve arrived, but more so I can do this. I can compete with some of the best in the game and I just want to continue to show that throughout the rest of the season.
