Jimbo Fisher on:
"Maryland, as you see, is a very good team. In every conference standing, they’re one or two in every statistical category across the board, playing very good football. Very dynamic players on offense—quarterback C.J. Brown is playing lights out. (Stefon) Diggs is a great player—he’s catching balls everywhere. Their back, (Brandon) Ross is way up there and does a good job. They’ve got a good football team. Defensively, (Marcus) Whitfield has five or six sacks and six or seven tackles for loss. (They are) doing a lot of different things with coverages and blitz packages—playing great football. Special teams are doing a good job, got great returners because they’re dynamic and athletic."
On the offensive rhythm this year:
“It’s everything. He gets hot. Like I say, be careful. Sometimes (when) a quarterback plays bad we want to blame him and when they play well—is he (Jameis Winston) playing well and doing things? Yes, he’s playing very well, but the guys around him are blocking and getting to spots and getting the angles right to create the throws and picking up blitzes and are able to make runs. It’s a combination of everything, but when they do that, it allows your quarterback to play well, and he’s doing a very good job.”
