Q. What can you take away from this game?
We'll see what areas we can improve on. You name it, run, pass…we didn't do a very good job at stopping either one.
Q. How tough was it going against Brandon Jacobs?
Never miss a local story.
A. He's a load, but I mean it's just as tough going against Derrick Ward or Ahmad Bradshaw. I mean you've got to give him credit, but I think you guys have to start looking at what that offensive line is doing, rather than just giving him all the praise. He's a very good running back in terms of his size and his speed, but they are opening some pretty big holes for him. Look at Bradshaw, he broke like eight tackles on that one play.
Q. Last year, the Giants had a pretty rough start to their season but they ended up as Super Bowl Champs. What can you take from their experience last season to help you with your current situation? It must feel good to know that it can be done.
A. Absolutely, that's our attitude, but it's going to have to be a team effort. When they made the commitment to turn it around, you could really tell the difference in their style of play and the way they executed. It can't be just like an every other week thing, they made it happen week after week and that's why they were able to be so successful. It's a choice that everyone has, each one of these guys in this locker room has to step it up and correct all of the little mistakes.
