Re: Childress quotesQ: What do you think about Martin Nance so far?
A: HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got good hand-eye. I mentioned heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a tall target so the quarterbacks donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have any trouble finding him. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got kind of sneaky speed. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a long-stride guy and he can chew up some ground pretty quick on you. Then heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pretty meticulous about depth of route, understanding what his conversions are - man and zone - and the fact that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been doing it in this offense since we picked him off the practice squad a couple years ago. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got some knowledge of the system; itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not like a foreign language to him.Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.

Re: Childress quotesQ: How is John David Booty progressing?
A: HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s coming along. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s another smart guy, but thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just so much involved at the quarterback position in terms of snap count, leading, knowing where your eyes are supposed to be, and then knowing whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happening with the defense. So IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure all of it is quite (there) yet. Can he tell you? Can he draw it on the board? Yeah, but when things start spinning, and you have to get to one, to two, to three, to four and ball out, those are the kinds of things where you see how far back you go. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about on track. It doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t help that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in there with who heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s with, but every third quarterback whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ever made it, whether itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s A.J. Feely or whoever, (has had) to play with that group. You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say, Ã¢â‚¬ÂLetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s stick him with the ones and see how he looks with them.Ã¢â‚¬Â ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not how a young quarterback gains his stripes.
I like the little bit of insight into Chiller's mind in that last sentence.
Not surprising, but interesting nonetheless.
