Mike Petraglia reports Alfonzo Dennard was asked how QBs like Russell Wilson con be so effective with the deep ball.

"Honestly, I’m not sure. I kind of say sometimes the quarterback lulls us to sleep. They do a lot of running and then all of sudden they hit with a play-action and a big play. You have to stay focused out there."

Dennard said the message from the coaches in Tuesday’s meeting was pretty clear.

"That’s how it goes," he said. "You have to always have that mindset that you can make plays. If you don’t make plays, you don’t perform well. I say we have to stay focused, stay focused on what we have to do out there. We have to play as a team and everybody has to be on the same page."

"It’s very tough just because you have to stay focused on what you have to do on the field," Dennard said. "I’m not going to say you have to be focused on [only] one thing. You have to be focused on a lot of things. You have to have your technique on point, mirror the receiver and just know what the receiver is going to do before you go out there.

"I know I messed up a lot on my technique. After watching film, I have a lot of stuff I have to work on."
