CB Janoris Jenkins

October 12, 2017

Q: What happened at the end of last week’s game, when you went into the locker room early?

A: I didn’t expect the timeout to be called, so I just walked in, as if everybody was going on the field, the game was over and I just went in.

Q: Did Head Coach Ben McAdoo have an issue with that?

A: No, he came to me and asked me and I told him. We had a nice little talk and that was it.

Q: When was your talk with McAdoo?

A: That was when we got back. He asked me about it when we first got back, that Tuesday for practice. And then he recently asked me about it again today, and that was it. It was nothing serious, nothing like that.

Q: So no punishment came from it?

A: I mean, why would there be a punishment? No comment.

Q: What is the mood like in the locker room?

A: Just stick together. We know adversity is going to hit from all types of angles. And just staying focused and just being there for one another.

Q: What is your reaction to cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie being suspended indefinitely?

A: No comment.

Q: How difficult is it in the secondary now, without Rodgers-Cromartie?

A: Next man up. We understand the situation. Like I said, next man up. Everybody has to be prepared.

Q: What would a win this week mean for the team?

A: It would mean a lot. We’ve been preparing like we’re going to win, we want to win and whatever the outcome may be, just know that you gave it your all. But coming out with a victory would be nice.

Q: Is the team still together?

A: Oh yeah, we’re still together. People try to call distractions, but keep our head together, stay tight and stay together.

Q: Do you think that a player being suspended is a distraction?

A: No comment.

Q: How do you prevent what happened with Rodgers-Cromartie from affecting yourself and the rest of the team?

A: No comment.

Q: What is your confidence level in the other guys in the cornerback room?

A: Man, just lead the guys. Just tell them to go out and play to the best of their ability. Give it all they’ve got. I’m with them 100 percent, whatever the situation or the outcome may be. But just let me know that you gave it your all.

Q: What does Denver wide receiver Demaryius Thomas bring to the table?

A: A big, physical guy. The quarterback likes to target him a lot. They like to go to him.

Q: What has been different about Denver’s offense in the fourth quarter that has led to their struggles?

A: Just the fourth quarter, it seems like they’re just trying to stay within the game, manage the game, just continue to run the ball. If they need to take a throw or two, they’ll take it. But if not, they’ll just run it, pass it every now and then.

Q: How do you make sure your teammates block out any negativity or outside noise?

A: Just focus on football. Just worry about what’s going on in football, in the locker room, in the meeting room, and everything will be okay.

Q: Do you sense that everybody has been focused and do you like the energy that you’ve seen this week?

A: I mean, I like it. I can say I really like it because everybody has been trying to prepare. Not that many guys have played, so everybody has got to step up. So, I feel like we’ve been focused.

Q: Has the cornerback group had to help the recently added wide receivers get up to speed?

A: Yeah, you’ve got to understand, they’re going against Denver, a talented group, and you’ve just got to pick my brain, as a receiver on my team, and just see what I can possibly give you or help you out. And I think they’ve been doing a good job of that.

Q: What can you learn from your seasons with the Rams when your team struggled, that you can bring to this team now?

A: Go in and just do your job. Hopefully everyone will come along, and just do it to the best of your ability. They’ve started picking it up.

Q: As a veteran, how much do you feel you need to be in the younger players’ ears?

A: Just stay on them and make sure nothing goes wrong because at any moment, at any time, anything can happen. And you’ve always got to be prepared for it.

Q: Has it been strange not having Rodgers-Cromartie in the position meetings this week?

A: No comment.

do not bother me, nor do they indicate a bigger issue. I would steer clear of that too as no matter what he says it will either be pro teammate and thus anti coach and organization or fueling the flames that DRC did something very wrong.

However, I see this as a poorly run ship and the Iceberg is right ahead.

I have to agree. I liked the no comments myself. Of course the media needs to ask some of those questions, but like you said, what good could come from answering them??

Fully agree. The no comment remarks were in good taste

Means, my coach is a fathead and I don't agree with his fathead ways but that fathead will suspend me if I talk so, no comment.

Character matters. Super Jenkins. He quit.
It sounds like he hasn't quit...

he's saying all the right things. Even though I've lost hope in the season, I'm not one of those fans that will tune out the games. I'm going to watch them, and I'll watch very closely the individuals. I'm a fan of the team, and I believe adversity is when character shows. I'm very curious as to how Jackrabbit will play, but I totally expect him to play well.

He may be frustrated - who wouldn't be? Yet he has experience playing on a loser (Rams) and he always gave it his all there. I have him on my short list of favorite current Giants players, and before is contract is done he may make it onto the list of favorite all-time Giants players also.

Go Jackrabbit! I'm in your corner man.
