"I think he's got the respect of the guys," Siemian said. "At times like this I think it's easy to point fingers. And nobody in here's done that and it's a credit to Coach Joseph and how he steered this thing."
"We just felt like the last couple of weeks we haven't challenged people with the ball enough," quarterback Trevor Siemian said. "Even last week against Miami, it kind of felt like we weren't challenging people down the field and with the guys we have, we have to be able to do that. Everything kind of goes along with that. With these guys we knew there were going to be a lot of contested catches, tough catches and tough throws. But we had to get some big ones and he (Thomas) stepped up big time."
