Q: What are your impressions about Coach McAdoo’s presence on the field?
A: It is great. He is a guy that is going to stay consistent and I think he has, even though his title has changed. He brings a lot of excitement; as you can see, there is a lot of music and things going on out here that kind of keeps it up-tempo, but it has been great so far, a lot of energy from the guys and it has been fun.
Q: What are your thoughts on the music selection?
A: They mix it up pretty well, actually. It will make everybody happy, which is good.
Q: How does it differ from a year ago?
A: They play it longer. If things get in kind of a lull, the music will kind of get guys going and keep the energy high, which is good.
Q: There are a lot of new faces on the offensive line. As one of the leaders of the line, how is the chemistry coming along with you guys and do you like the direction that the line is going in?
A: I do, I do. I said it when I first got up here, I really like the guys we have in our room and I think the fact that it stayed consistent personnel-wise says something about the group we have, and I think guys believe that we can do some really great things together, and it is just going to take that consistency, being out there as much as possible with that same group.
Q: Do you think the offensive line camp that you attended helped you out?
A: I think it is great. We do some really special stuff out there that applies to the position that I really believe strongly in and I am going to be there every offseason until I am done playing.
Q: What were you trying to focus on in the offseason?
A: I need to obviously work on strength, always strength. I want to get stronger….(inaudible).
Q: Do you think the other offensive linemen took offense to your comments about their training?
A: Well, those things were taken out of context. Speaking on what I believe about the place I train, I think it is a great spot. I wish everybody could be out there because we do some really great stuff. Like I said, I will be out there every off-season until I am done playing.
Q: Are you going to try and get a couple of your teammates out there next year?
A: Well [John Jerry] is out there with me now, so like I said, I would love to have everybody out there. It is a great spot and we do a lot of good work.
Q: Can you give us an idea of something that really makes a big difference there?
A: Well, it is all --- we are not just bench pressing. We are doing things that are applicable to what we are doing on the field, so we may do a lifting movement but then go to the field and kind of show how that movement translates to what we do on the field in pass blocking or run blocking.
Q: This is the LeCharles Bentley School?
Q: I know it is just the first OTA, but can you tell anything about the D-line?
A: It looks good. I have played against Olivier and Snacks and they are great players. I think it is going to help a lot and I am excited to not only get practice against those guys but when it comes Sunday, to see those guys perform because they are both great players. Every addition that we have made, I think, has been a positive addition.
Q: What exactly is that drill that is named after Snee?
A: I think it changes. Sometimes --- I guess the first minicamp, we were under the chutes doing run blocking. It is just the name of the period, I think. We are still early on in the process, so maybe I am completely wrong with it, but it is an offensive line, defensive line period named after those two guys.
Q: Is that something to shoot for? To get a period named after you at some point.
A: It would be cool, but yes, those are two guys that really set the tone for what it means to be a Giant, so it is cool to have that as the name of the period.
