Rodrigue,  The Charlotte Observer reporter, asked the quarterback a question about the Carolina wide receiver Devin Funchess’s route-running. She asked

Devin Funchess has seemed to really embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards. Does this give you a little bit of an enjoyment to see him kind of truck-sticking people out there?
