RT Chad Wheeler
October 3, 2018

Q: Coach said your more laid-back California, but you have that ability to turn that switch. Talk about how you Ė when do you start getting that switch? Is it in the locker room before the game, Saturday night? When do you start turning that?
A: You start throughout the week. I think you start on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Sort of like build up for game time. So yeah, you got to be calm around family and friends and then you got to turn into a savage when you enter the building.

Q: Do you start rocking certain music or something like that? What do you do?
A: I like Eminem. I donít know, Logic is good. Lil Wayneís new album is good. Yeah. just whatever is out.

Q: How are you and Patrick (Omameh) working together communication-wise?
A: Itís great. Heís a very savvy vet. He understands the game, heís played a lot of football so anything I can take away from him I try to and I try to help him as much as I can, holding up my end of the bargain by being as prepared as I can be and just sort of help him anyway I can.

Q: You guys talk about Carolina Ė you look at Carolina on film they like to give you stunts, they do some twists and stuff like that. Do you guys talk about that?
A: Yeah weíve seen that in the film study days before, and this morning. A lot of teams are going to end up doing that. Weíve sort of struggled with that early in our first two games so we have to prepare for that.

Q: As a group, do you feel like you guys are making some progress up front?
A: Yeah as a group I feel like weíre coming together just doing the little things, itís just do something better. Honestly, you donít have to re-invent the wheel or try to be Superman out there so you just got to do your job and hope the guy next to you is doing it.

Q: Just looking back to New Orleans, is there anything in particular you guys saw on film that you can do better?
A: Some of our run fits we couldíve done a lot better, getting on linebackers, opening up holes for Saquon (Barkley). He was getting like four-five yards, but we want to bust those for like 30-yard gains, 10 or 30-yard gains, so we have a lot of work to do in that area. Passing game, we gave up some pressures and sacks so we just have to get on our guys and stay in front of them.

Q: Coach was actually pretty complimentary about the way that you played on Sunday. Are you kind of hard on yourself in general?
A: Yeah you got to be hard on yourself especially being an undrafted free agent. Youíre always going to have that chip on your shoulder, never going to feel like youíre good enough and honestly once you start feeling youíre good enough, thatís when you get humbled in this league, so you just got to keep pushing.
That's all we can hope for

If Chad Wheeler could develop into an adequate RT, that would be the type of luck on the OL the Giants haven't had since David Diehl.
I'm not sure yet if he's a better player

Itís to bad that it has to be set in stone that Solder can only play LT

Why not try and switch them . If they lose again and the Oline is the fault

Then I would try .....
Wouldnít that be something.... ¬†
