    PETE WERNER
    • He says he "gets to know this defense very well" as a fourth-year linebacker and can play all three spots at the second level of the defense.
    • "I feel like we had a great game plan going into Penn State." He says he agrees there's a "pro feel" to it.
    • Werner says learning the defense was a little bit overwhelming at the start of his career, but through reps and years of work, he's in a great spot.
    • "I really focused this offseason trying to get at the right weight, strength, things like that." He says the focus now is to maintain his weight and strength.
    • Werner says they focused a lot on not allowing the quarterback run to beat them.
    • On the upcoming opponents: "I respect the hell out of these teams."
    • "If you play well, you do have fun." He says he likes competing and winning, so while there's a lot going on in the world right now, they can have fun.
    • On Penn State's offense: "It was definitely not in their game plan to only rush the ball for 44 yards and throw the ball as much as they did." He says knowing they can stop the run from a defensive perspective eliminates it from their plan.
    • Werner says he's trying to get the hang of blitzing from inside the box. He says you have the ability to control the defense from there.
    • He says when there's a lot of talent and knowledge on the defense, you can take some risks or calls certain calls. " I think we've done a great job of responding to (Kerry Coombs') play-calling."
