DE Jason Pierre-Paul
Postgame vs. Jets, December 6, 2015
Q: How do you guys bounce back from this? What are the emotions right now?
A: Tough loss --- I donít know what to say. [We] just need to go look at film and see where we made our mistakes. We played well --- we just didnít finish the game.
Q: It seemed like early on in this game you guys were getting probably a more consistent pass rush than weíve seen all year. What was going right for you guys in that first half?
A: We were just working together as one, as a team. We were communicating better than we normally do and we worked on it all week in practice and guys were just getting after it.
Q: Can you take us through that final drive in regulation?
A: I donít even remember the final drive. Iím just pissed off.
Q: We saw you on the left side more than we have seen this year. Did that have to do with your plant hand?
A: I play both sides, so it doesnít matter to me. I feel comfortable, I repped it all week and my coach wanted me to try it out and I did pretty well over there, so you will see me back and forth. There is no set spot for me, so Iím just letting that be known right now.
Q: They ran a lot of screens and underneath passes. Was that what you guys anticipated?
A: Yeah, we just didnít stop it. They played a heck of a game, hats off to them.
Q: How frustrating is this knowing you had a 10-point lead late?
A: Very frustrating. That is why we are going to go back and look at the film and correct what we need to correct,
Q: You have been on defenses that can finish games and finish drives --- what is the difference here? What are you guys not doing?
A: I donít know. We have to look at the film. We played a good game, everyone played well. Me personally, as long as everyone is giving 110 percent, Iím fine with it. I gave 110 percent today and I walked off that field knowing that I did my job.
Q: Do you still feel like there is time left in the season?
A: There are a lot of games to be played, so just move on to the next game and take it one game at a time.
Q: Do you think that anyone on the defense is thinking about earlier games in season when they couldnít hold the lead?
A: Those games are over. We had a chance to win those games and we didnít. I wish I was here earlier but Iím here now, but those games are in the past and we have got to move on to the next game and move forward --- up next is basically it for us.
Q: How surprised were you that Josh Brown missed a field goal when he hasnít missed all season?
A: Things happen, man. Itís football --- nine times out of 10, he will make that, he just didnít. It wasnít his fault that we lost the game. We should have played much better.
Q: Anything different for you personally playing on the left side?
A: No, it is no different --- I repped it all week and that is what side I have decided to go on, but you will see me back and forth this Sunday.
Q: Is it easier to do that with the club?
A: I rush both sides in practice. I just stayed over to the left because my coach wanted me to today.
Q: Did you feel any of the emotions of the rivalry out there?
A: At the end of the day, it is a rivalry, whatever you want to call it. I was out there playing football, trying to win a game, but we fell short today, so I am pissed off. I am going to go home and watch the film when it comes up on my Ipad and see where I can get better and help other players and as a D-line that is what we need.
