Head Coach Ben McAdoo
October 5, 2017
Q: Is it a bad reflection on you as a head coach and play-caller that defenders are telling Odell that they know what your team is doing on offense?
Q: How do feel about Odell making this information public and will you speak to him about it?
A: Your interpretation of what Odell said and mine are entirely different.
Teams do a good job scouting the opponent. Thatís a part of gamesmanship. We have things to counteract it, and it paid off for us in the game. Every defensive back thinks they know what you're running until they don't. Unfortunately, we didnít win the game.
There is no defense for the perfect throw and the good route. I think if we do what weíre supposed to do from an execution standpoint and the throw is on time and where itís supposed to be, we should be able to complete the ball. And we are one broken tackle away from taking one to the house, especially when Odell is the receiver.
Q: Odell walked off the field with trainers as we were leaving practice. Did he re-aggravate one of his injuries? Did he return to practice?
A: It looked like he was cramping, but Iíll have to go in and check out and see what the final word is.
Q: Did he return to practice?
A: He did not return.
Q: Is JPP (Jason Pierre-Paul) making enough progress where you think he can play on Sunday?
A: We have practice on Saturday. Weíll take a look at him and see how he progresses through the week. Itís too early to tell.
Q: Why did you eliminate the music from practice?
A: I didnít eliminate the music from practice.
Q: I guess there were periods that previously had music that did not today.
A: We structured practice a little bit differently with when we do and when we donít play music. During periods where there are fundamental emphasis and team emphasis as far as the scheme and getting the details right, we cut the music so our focus and concentration can go up, and we will re-introduce it later in the week.
