Some quotes from Friday’s media sessions at Quest yesterday….
“As a player, just maturing and understating what the organization wants out of me, understanding the offense and being able to play a lot faster and just getting on the same page with Eli has been the major difference for me coming in last year and over to the summer.” – WR Rueben Randle on how he’s progressed since last season
“No pressure at all. I think when you step out there, it doesn’t matter what round you’re drafted in. You’re in the lineup against a guy and that’s the battle, regardless of a first round pick and wherever they’re from. So just go out there and play every play. Do what I have to do and do my job.” – OL Justin Pugh on making his NFL debut this Sunday
“He was in this offense and he knows what it takes to be successful in this offense and he tried to teach me everything he could while he was here, so we just have a good relationship.” – RB David Wilson’s reaction to Ahmad Bradshaw’s comment that once he learns the offense the sky’s the limit
“He’s an athlete. The same thing Ahmad said about me; once he learns the offense, he can be really effective and help this team out.” – Wilson on rookie RB Michael Cox
“I’ve said many times what Ahmad meant to us when he was here. He was a tough, hard-nosed guy. Any time he came on the field, you knew what you were going to get out of him. He was very focused, very physical, very tough. He played hard and was very emotional about the way he played. He was a big, big part of our two championship teams. You think back to ’07 when he breaks the long one in Buffalo, those types of things. Those are the things that stand out for me; his toughness, his heart, the way he approached every game, the emotion he put into it. He would play with extreme pain, we all know that. Nothing but great thoughts about him.” – Tom Coughlin on Ahmad Bradshaw
