NYG Postgame (at Jets) Transcripts: RB Saquon Barkley -- November 10, 2019
Q: Is this one of your most frustrating days in the NFL?
A: Yes, a frustrating game that we lost.
Q: It looked like nothing was there?
A: We just have to get better.
Q: How are you feeling physically at this point?
A: We just have to get better. The Jets played a heck of a game. We get to go on a bye week, get to reflect on myself and move on.
Q: Pat Shurmur said you were banged up and we saw you go to the x-ray room, are you hurt?
A: Next question.
Q: The natural reaction is after the last three games you have to be hurt, what do you say to that?
A: We have to be better, we are going into the bye week. We get to watch film and reflect on ourselves. We have six games left to try to finish the season off strong.
Q: Have you ever had a game or a stretch like this, where it just hasnít been as productive as you would like?
A: Yeah, I think I probably had it in college. At the end of the day, we just have to watch film get ready for the bye week and our next opponent.
Q: Do you have sense for what was the biggest problem in the running game?
A: The Jets played a hell of a game, they have a hell of a defense. Going into the game they were only averaging 3.1 yards per carry, they did an amazing job. I made sure I went to Coach (Gregg) Williams, shook his hand and said good job.
Q: What do you think about the possibility there could be changes in the bye week?
A: Only the thing I can focus on is coming in and being the player for my team. Just focused on this bye week, itís a week where it gives everyone a chance to get healthier, not only myself but the whole team. We get to reflect on our season so far and try to be a better team than we were in the first half.
Q: What happened on the strip sack?
A: Jamal Adams beat me, itís as simple as that. Heís a heck of a player, all pro. I didnít really want to switch jerseys with him at the end of the game, I jokingly told him that. (Heís) one of my good friends, one of my boys. Heís a hell of a player, much respect to him. I have to be better there.
Q: Whatís the emotion for you right now, is it frustration, anger, disappointment, whatís the feeling?
A: Yes, frustration, disappointment, anger, everything you said. No one wants to be 2-8, no one wants to have a losing record. Everyoneís upset, everyoneís frustrated.
