Bryce Petty Speaks To The Media

It's rookie minicamp and that means we get to hear from the players

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Bryce Petty will have to face a lot of questions about the perception he can't succeed in a pro offense, and that started today as he met the media:

On learning the playbook…

It’s a process. It’s one you have to take day by day. It’s a mountain that I’m ready to climb and that I’m excited to climb. Being in a spread offense where things might have been a little bit more simplistic in college and then coming here, being able to play quarterback a little bit, not that we didn’t in Baylor, you just get more on your plate here, which is what I love. It’s why you play the position.

On his personal expectations for the season…

For me, it’s just to be the best quarterback I can every day. Learn as much as I can, retain as much as I can every day and then be a good teammate and enjoy the process. This is an unbelievable position I get to be in. I get to live out my dream that I’ve had since I was six, so being here is awesome.

On people labeling him a system quarterback…

Like I said before, it’s a process. It goes day by day. So hopefully one day you guys will stop talking about me as being a system quarterback, but right now I have to pay my dues. I’m excited about that, I’m ready for that challenge. 

On learning the new language in the playbook…

That just goes to my preparation. And for me, that’s exactly what I want to do right now. If you guys weren’t here, I’d be in the playbook and that’s kind of what I said all along. It’s more about the person than it is the player as far as when you come out of a system. For me, I want to be the best, I want to be productive, I want to put my guys in the best chance to be successful so they can get the ball and that comes with me knowing what to do. So any chance I get, I want to get in the playbook, learn it as quickly as I can, retain it, and go from there.
