Q: What did you see in the defensive players’ review session and what do you think came out of it?
A: Who told you about that? It’s just a good opportunity to see what other guys are thinking and being able to hold yourself accountable – to stand up and tell your teammates I messed up on this play or I could have done something better on this play. That means the world. It means you know that you’re doing something wrong and you’re going to try and correct it.
Q: Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo thought the positive was that you guys are seeing the same thing he sees.
A: Yeah. Nobody is crazy in that room. We all can see the mistakes. It’s just different if somebody can actually tell you, ‘Look, I know what I did wrong on this play.’ So, it’s better than having Spags go up there and say one thing.
Q: DE Jason Pierre-Paul said that he doesn’t think other teams fear you guys. Does that bother you?
A: No. I mean, why should they? They’ve been able to run the ball with some consistency and until we stop the run, I don’t think anybody will fear us.
Q: Do you think that was the case last year – teams not fearing you?
A: They tried to run the ball on us last year, too. We just did a good job of stopping it on first and second, which we’re not doing now.
Q: Was Johnathan Hankins really that big of a loss since you have the same personnel as last year besides him?
A: I mean, of course. Anytime you lose a player like Hankins. But, it’s not any one person. It’s a collective group effort. I think guys are just thinking too much, myself included. We just have to get back to playing relentless football – flying around and making plays and having fun.
Q: Was it weird practicing without music today?
A: No. I don’t pay attention to the music. I’m not much of a dancer anymore.
Q: Do you feel like this is the perfect opportunity for a win at home after losing three on the road?
A: I don’t know what you’re talking about, boss. We feel like we can win every game we’re in. Winless or not.
