“Joe [Haden] has done a fantastic job of being pressured to cover the rarest of athletes in the NFL that can run and jump and catch without hitting the guy past 5 yards. So he's having a fantastic year. I think Buster Skrine is having a fantastic year. I think T.J. Ward is having a fantastic year. And I think my biggest surprise and probably the [defensive] MVP for me is Tashaun Gipson. He has done a remarkable job for us.”
