NYG Postgame (vs. Cardinals) Transcripts: S Jabrill Peppers -- October 20, 2019
Q: Why do you think Chase Edmonds at running back was so effective against you guys today?
A: He was hitting holes hard and fast. He didnít go down easy. He did everything he was supposed to do tonight. He had a good day.
Q: How do you explain that slow start for you guys, especially coming off the Patriots game, you might have had a little momentum?
A: We just need to get back, get back in the film room, look at it and get it corrected.
Q: What was the mood like once you guys were down 17? Was there a different sort of energy? Were you guys on to get back into it?
A: Thereís no panic. Weíve been there before. We fought back, we just didnít make enough plays in the end.
Q: What did you think of Larry (Fitzgerald)?
A: I like him. I think we did a good job mixing up the looks on him. We just didnít stop the run as well as we like.
Q: It seemed like you had him in good positions in the first quarter and a half, and he just kept on making third down plays.
A: Thatís the name of the game.
Q: It seemed like a pretty winnable game coming in, and now you look up and youíre 2-5. Whatís the mood in this room, and how do you keep guys bought in?
A: We just need to stay focused. Itís a marathon, not a sprint. Obviously, we didnít get the end result we wanted. But we have a lot of season left. We just need to band together and execute better on game days. Thatís all it comes down to.
Q: Do you think maybe some guys arenít executing out there? Maybe below the level they should be?
A: As a whole, weíre not. Itís not just on one guy. As a whole, weíre not playing, not executing, very well. Weíre not making the plays we need to make when we need to make them. In this league, thatís what you have to do to win ball games.
Q: Not being able to set the edge on some of those touchdown runs, is that just a communication thing?
A: We just have to look at the tape. Get it corrected. Itís a copycat league. Weíre definitely going to see those plays again. Weíll come in tomorrow, come in to work, make the proper corrections, put this thing to bed and move on to Detroit.
Q: Were some of those plays things you werenít expecting coming in? Did you feel like you guys were prepared?
A: Definitely, we were prepared. It just comes down to executing and making the plays. We didnít do a good job of that tonight.
