NYG Postgame (at Jets) Transcripts: WR Darius Slayton -- November 10, 2019
Q: Whatís your feeling? There was so much optimism a month and a half ago, then suddenly youíre going into the bye with a six-game losing streak. Whatís the mood of the team?
A: I think obviously everybody is frustrated. Anytime you have a six-game losing streak, itís not the greatest thing ever but we just have to get back to work on Monday.
Q: What do you look forward to for the rest of the season after knowing the record right now?
A: Just kind of looking forward to getting back to work and winning some games. I mean, I think at the end of the day, I donít think anybody around here is going to quit. I donít think anybody around here is going to quote unquote tank or anything like that. We just have to get back to work and find a way to win games.
Q: It seemed like half of the offense was working today, you guys were throwing the ball fairly well but Saquon (Barkley) had nowhere to go. Is that just they played run defense well or what?
A: Yeah, I mean they are a pretty good run defense. They obviously had a pretty good game plan coming in to neutralize him. I think at the end of the day as a collective whole, receivers, linemen, we all know who he is. Everybodyís just got to block because we know if we can get him a crease or anything like that we can really get him going. At the end of the day I think we just as a whole we have to give better effort to try to help him out.
Q: This is the third straight game you guys have gone into the fourth quarter with the chance to win the game. You were up 27-24 going into the fourth quarter, you get outscored 10-0 in the fourth. How discouraging is that knowing that youíre on the cusp but canít quite close?
A: Itís definitely frustrating. Like you said, we went into the fourth quarter with the lead, we were feeling pretty good, playing fairly well, moving the ball pretty wellóweíve just got to find a way to close the game out.
Q: Whatís sort of the state or the mindset of this team right now?
A: Obviously everybody is frustrated. Nobody likes to lose, but I definitely think guys are going to keep working hard. Weíre going to keep fighting and try to find a way to win games in the future.
