Defensive End Jason Pierre-Paul
November 3, 2017
Q: Whatís hard about bringing Todd Gurley down?
A: Everybody knows heís a very good running back, but, you know, you have to keep your composure, set the edge and that should take care of it.
Q: Whatís so different about the Ramsí offense this year?
A: Look at film Ė theyíre doing a great job of executing their plays right and getting up to the ball very fast. They catch teams slipping. Thatís what makes their offense. They have a very good offense and they got number 30 (Todd Gurley) back there, number 11 (Tavon Austin). All together Ė the stuff they do. They canít trick your eyes. You got to do your assignments pretty well and thatís what weíre going to do Sunday.
Q: How much does Jared Goff contribute to that?
A: Heís developing, man. Heís developing Ė young quarterback. When you look on film though, heís doing all the right things. So, we played them last year. Last year was last year. This is a whole other year.
Q: How do you think DE Avery Moss has done stepping in due to injuries?
A: Heís played pretty well. For a rookie, heís doing a great job. Heís got a lot on his plate like all of us do. Heís got a lot on his plate. Heís just got to do his assignments. Donít try to do anybody elseís job and heíll be fine.
Q: Talk about the attitude and the mindset of the team coming off the bye week.
A: Weíre starting over fresh. We got these games to play. Weíre going to take it one at a time and start from there. Weíre in November and we know what happens in November. Good teams fall off and bad teams come up. So, weíll see.
Q: Is it frustrating coming off of a bye week and still having a lot of guys injured?
A: Itís not frustrating. Itís not frustrating. Itís football. Football is football, you know. You canít always count on a guy thatís going to be there. Itís a team sport. I feel like with the players that we got here, weíre capable of getting the job done. Even with 13 (Odell Beckham Jr.) out and B. Marshall, (Kerry) Wynn, you know, all those guys. Even on the defensive part of the ball, too, but at the same time, itís football. So, we got to do our job. Weíre all professional athletes. Thatís what we get paid for. We come to work and we got to do our jobs.
Q: Do you have any idea why good practices donít translate on Sundayís?
A: I donít know. I just feel like the main concept now Ė whatever happens now is just, you got to finish. For me, itís more than just football. I got people that look up to me. Everybody has a role model they look up to, but I know I have my son that looks up to me. My family Ė my family name is on my back and itís just more than football. Almost lost it, but Iím here. Like I said, I can only play for me and I know the team is going to do a great job of sticking together. Like I said, itís football. We got to move the next man up and thatís basically it. So, the next guy has to do better. This is an opportunity. For me to get to this spot where I am today, somebody had to fall off, right? You know what I mean? So, hopefully the guys pick it up. Do what we got to do.
