A chat with Aaron Maybin – Part II Craig Thomas

Q)Did you get into Rex Grossman’s head?

“No, because if you saw I probably hit him about five or six times. He’s got to get the ball out of his hands so fast, that you really have to attack every single rush like it’s your last rush. He is pretty elusive, and he’s not the fastest guy or the quickest guy, but he’s slippery. That’s the only way to describe him, and he’s starting to get comfortable in that offense, so he’s starting to feel pressure and move in the pocket.

Q)How cool was it to make such a big play so close to home?

Maybin: “Yeah, it feels great, but my personal success ties in with the team directly. As the team goes, that’s how I’m feeling.

For the rest of the season, every week is going to be the biggest game. So, right now, for us to just finish up playing our biggest game of the season, it feels good. We will watch the film and table it and start getting ready for Kansas City.

Q)How is the team playing overall?

Maybin: Until you see those kind of mistakes and eliminate it, the turnovers, especially in special teams and things that are uncharacteristic of our team in general, until you see all those little mistakes get eliminated, I doubt any of us will really be satisfied. In my opinion that speaks to the character of the guys in this locker room, it’s like a constant quest for perfection.

[Against Washington] having people say that we are playing against a better defense than ours, we took that personally. It’s something that us as a team, we are just going to continue to keep on fighting, and continue to keep on trying to get better at all three facets of the game.
