Warchant TV: Jimbo Fisher on Tuesday's Practice
Good day, good hard day. Liked it. Did some real good things. One of the better Tuesdays we've had in my opinion. I liked the enthusiasm, the focus. (NC State) does some things out of the ordinary in all three phases and we really have to be attentive to detail in some things. But I liked our practice, I liked our attitude. Came out with a purpose to get better and some guys did. Made some plays.
On NC State:
They're constantly in different formations, they can throw the ball in all different kind of sets, get the ball to different parts of the field. Their special teams do a really nice job of mixing things up, the defense brings constant pressure, blitzes. And then all of the sudden you think they're doing it and they're back in their two deep zones. They do a great job of mixing and matching a lot of things…very well coached.
On the offense's communication:
Tomorrow we'll crank up the noise. Wednesday and Thursday we'll crank up the noise, but I needed to have one day where I could teach a little bit without getting a headache.
On having the offense whisper to prepare for the noise at NC State:
Yeah we whisper and talk low anyway, we do that anyway. Sometimes they forget and you have to remind them.
On spreading the ball around to receivers:
I think it really (helps the offense), because it's kind of like war to a point. You always know where the captain is going to be or the leader is going to be and you can blow him up. We give our quarterbacks a lot of freedom to make decisions on where he's going with the ball and we have a lot of guys who can catch it and we don't mind throwing it to them…in certain situations we want to get it to certain people…if you've got enough guys to do that, it makes it a lot easier, especially calling plays.
On Bryan Stork:
He was lineman of the week, he's had a great year, very solid in leading our guys inside…doing a really nice job inside. He's big, staying around 308 pounds now, big force inside and he runs well, he can get to the second level well.
On Stork's maturity:
More so this fall camp, I mean, the offseason was good, but this fall camp he's really started (playing with) consistency. He always has shined, but the maturity comes in and you just do it everyday.
On Cam Erving:
Been very solid, has done some nice things. Got beat a couple times last game, but a couple times it wasn't his fault…he's run blocking extremely well, pass blocking has been good, has had a couple breakdowns, but when you play left tackle, it's like playing quarterback, you're going to make a bad decision every now and then.
On Chris Thompson breaking tackles and getting yards after contact:
I think it's two things. One, he's extremely tough. He has a desire to be great, but then he's got great balance and body control and he's very strong. He's a very hard guy and when you hit him, even tough guys, he's got great balance and body control.
On Lonnie Pryor:
He makes guys miss, he's that hybrid guy. That in-between guy that is big and can block and then has the moves, the quickness and still have the power to run on the goalline.
