Best quote from Trey Hendrickson's 2020 season:

"The great thing about football is it's a team game. Sometimes you get lost in the statistics of individual players, you know. Some people's interceptions are caused by pressure and some people's sacks are caused by (coverage), so it is a team sport for a reason. And there was a lot to, I think, every individual sack on the field. So it's hard to dissect all that stuff, but we do play as a team and unit, so I'm excited moving forward."
