Giants vs. Patriots

Q: You had the two picks tonight, what has made you a better player?

A: Really just the film preparation that goes into it. Studying harder, studying longer, and just being out there taking it one day at a time. Making those plays comes from a lot of instincts, anticipation and things like that. A lot of it goes into that.

Q: I know Kevin Dockery has been very close to you in your rehab. What has he taught you about being a corner in this league?

A: Heís really given me a perspective on things. He was a smaller player as well. Sometimes you get information from guys, but they were 6-2, you know, long range, so they play a little different. We kind of have a playing style where he could tell me since we are a little smaller, we have to do this or that.

Q: After last season, do you feel secure right now after tonightís performance?

A: No, because honestly last year thatís how I felt going into the fourth game. I felt like I kind of laxed and it didnít sit well with me. I had a little sick feeling in my stomach. Going into this game, I wanted to lock in, and got out there and give it my all. Weíll see what happens.

Q: So what will you be feeling at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday?

A: I wonít be nervous. At this point, I put it all out on the table, I put my best foot forward. At this point, what happens, happens.

Q: Did you feel you needed to do something special tonight?

A: My mindset is to go out and make plays, but really, I just wanted to stay engaged and stay locked in the whole game and play with good technique. When opportunities come, make the plays.

Q: It looked like they had a hard time getting you that ball (after the 1st interception), they handed you the ball and you threw it back down?

A: I was just excited, so I was throwing it back down, I was just excited.

Q: Whatís it like when you turn around and see two balls sitting in your locker?

A: Man, itís lovely. They are two Patriot ones, so it feels a little better.

Q: Are you going to change up your routine this weekend?

A: No, same routine, and then we will let it play out from there.
Its a shame this guy doesn't have an extra 2 inches and 20 lbs.

He's competitive. Has good instincts and ball skills. He just doesn't have the size.
Everyone can't be Superman. Each player has to use his gifts.

I like the way he plays.
Last year, Cockrell?

If I recall correctly, I think he got bumped off the team by the Cockrell acquisition.

I suspect heís another player competing against the waiver wire. Heís probably made the team against his current competition. But the Giants might use that waiver wire positioning to try to upgrade.

I love these guys who clearly give it everything theyíve got.

Iím definitely rooting for him.

Eli Apple should look at him and learn how to play.

If he did he wouldn't have been an UDFA.
Why not a shot at FS

Would think if he could freelance a bit and not be assigned to cover man on man larger receivers his size might not be as much of an issue. He definitely has ball skills and we do not have anyone close to an elite player now at the position.
Remember H-O-Famer Darrell Green ....

Ex Texas A&I, and Redskin (5'8, 176) - 7X Pro Bowl 4X ALL PRO; he was 10-15 pounds heavier and an inch SHORTER than Deayon.

"Neon" just needs a wee bit more bulk and he will be fine. I remember ex Charger great, Billy Ray Smith saying this about this kind of player - "these guys, the ball just finds them, I can't explain it"
