NYG Postgame (at Jets) Transcripts: QB Daniel Jones -- November 10, 2019
Q: Take us through that sequence where you guys got behind and then you got going again, scored a couple touchdowns, took the lead, the different waves that the game seemed to go through.
A: Obviously, it was a slow start for us, which I thought hurt us. We kind of dug ourselves a hole a little bit there in the beginning, but we fought back there in the first half. Then second half, like you said, we scored a couple touchdowns to take the lead. Then they came back. You realize you need to be able to sustain that energy or the momentum or what youíre doing consistently enough to handle their punches, handle their drives or their scores, and we didnít do that.
Q: What happened on the play when Jamal (Adams) basically took the ball out of your hands?
A: Just trying to get the ball out and didnít do a good job holding onto it with him there.
Q: Did they do anything defensively, any trick plays, any defensive coverages that caught you by surprise?
A: Not really. I thought we were well prepared for what they did. Credit to them, they played well. But yeah, I thought we were well prepared for what they do.
Q: How much did not having a running game affect the offense?
A: I think all phases of the game complement each other. We have to do a better job in the pass game finding completions and moving the ball, and that helps everyone. As an offense, we have to be able to attack a lot of different ways. Each of the phases will take pressure off of others. That goes for the pass game. If we can move it consistently, I think some of the runs will open up also.
Q: What is going to be your approach during the bye week? Are you going to get away from football, self-scout, what are your plans?
A: Certainly, take a little bit of time to rest. But we have six games left and an opportunity to finish strong, so Iíll certainly stay focused on that and try to prepare for the Bears.
Q: Do you have any concerns about this team staying together and not finger pointing or anything like that?
A: No, I donít. The guys in the locker room are behind each other. We know the coaches support us. I donít see that happening at all. I think weíll stay together as a team and try to work to improve.
Q: Do you have any message to the fans who have been frustrated with all of the losses?
A: They should be disappointed. Fans should be disappointed. We are, too, but weíre going to do what we can, weíre going to work as hard as we can to improve whatís gone wrong and get back into the win column. Obviously, we have a lot of work to do.
Q: What do you think happened on the first two-point conversion attempt, the one that got called back?
A: Just Golden (Tate) trying to get open. He got called there. I thought he ran a good route. Games have to be calledÖ A contact play like that is going to be called one way or the other. Obviously, disappointing, but I thought he ran a good route.
