November 30, 2017
Q: Does it feel personal when you do something you devote your life to and then it doesnít work out on Sunday?
A: Yeah. I always take it personally. Itís my job. Itís what I love to do. Iím an ultimate competitor. Losses hurt everybody Iím sure. Itís all we have right now.
Q: Does this defense play with a sense of pride that there is still a lot to show despite the record?
A: Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. You just look around at the collection of guys we have. We lost a lot of guys, but we still have some guys that are playing for a lot.
Q: When you see Marshawn Lynch on film, does he look as good as he has?
A: Yeah. Heís still running hard, strong. Saw him run over a defensive tackle the other day that caused quite the stir in the defensive line room, so itíll be a big challenge for us.
Q: Does his cutting ability make him a little more dangerous?
A: Yeah because heís coming downhill fast right now with an attitude, you combine that the ability to cut the way that he does. I mean, it just adds a different level of I donít know whatís the word.
A: There you go. Weíll go with danger. Weíll take danger. Yeah.
Q: What was your reaction to the quarterback change?
A: I mean, obviously you feel for Eli (Manning). Eli has done a lot for this franchise. Great teammate. Even better guy. I know he wants to win and my heart goes out to him and you just got to trust what the coaching staff, you know, what their plan is, their vision is. I feel for him.
Q: You were there for a lot of the things that Geno Smith has dealt with throughout his career. Whatís it like for you to see him get this opportunity?
A: Itís bittersweet because like you said, I know Geno. Geno is one of my good friends and Iím excited for him to get an opportunity. Itís just unfortunate that it came at the expense of Eli, but, you know, Iím excited to see Geno as well.
Q: Can you talk about the thing on Twitter with Carl Banks and if you spoke to him at all?
A: Itís on my Twitter, man. Itís out there. You can read it. Take from it what you will.
Q: Did you feel like you had to stand up for the team in that moment on Twitter?
A: Take from it what you will, brother.
