Some quotes from yesterday’s media sessions at QDTC….
“No. I’m going to keep throwing. I’m going to keep trying to make good reads and throw the ball. I’m not going to get gun shy. After the two interceptions early in the game, I didn’t change my confidence or making throws or being aggressive. I’ve just got to continue to be conscious about them and not making bad throws. I think the first one was really my only bad throw, bad decision. Those are the things you’ve got to control as a quarterback is your bad decisions. Sometimes you have a bad throw and those things happen, but the decisions are the things you can truly control.” - QB Eli Manning on if the interceptions have hurt his confidence
“Best case, I’ll be back after the second opinion. That’s what I’m hoping and praying for because I feel perfectly fine. It really doesn’t make sense to me right now. People say, “Oh, but it’s the neck.” But I feel like I’m fine. I’m willing to go out there and sacrifice and play with my team, this is what I love. That’s my choice.” – RB David Wilson on his neck injury
“We’re going to take a hard look at that. Why is it that we are not getting home? What can be done? Perhaps we can tweak the system a little bit. Be creative in some respects trying to get some things that will help us. But by and large, you’ve got to beat the guy who is trying to block you and we’re really not doing that with any degree of… Now we have some pressure. We can force the quarterback to throw the ball on our time occasionally, but as far as the sack, minus-seven chance for turnover, which you know we had in that game last night; we didn’t cause Cutler any problems.” - Tom Coughlin on the suddenly inept pass rush
“It went well. As the Mike linebacker, you’re in charge of making the calls, getting the guys lined up, making checks. For the most part I feel like I did a good job but there were some plays that I wish I could have back. At the end of the day, if you don’t win, nothing really matters….I haven’t played that many snaps in a long time so it felt good just to be out there in the first. You try to make an impact on every play, obviously by doing your job first. I felt good, man. I’m a little sore but that just means that I went to work.” - LB Jon Beason on his Giants’ debut
