NYG Postgame (vs. Rams) Transcripts: CB James Bradberry
October 4, 2020
Q: You guys had a great day as a defense. I don't want to take away from that, but I do need to ask you about the Cooper Kupp touchdown at the end there. It looked like you had a bead on him. Why weren't you able to get a piece of him there?
A: He kind of just squared me up. He had a two-way go on me. I stopped my feet. It was just bad technique by me. I should have been able to get him down or at least get a hand on him or something.
Q: You guys playing this way as a defense; do you expect to win games when you play this way as a defense?
A: We just expect to go out there and dominate. That's our whole motto, whether it's a win or a loss, we need to go out there and dominate and show that we are a dominant force. If they don't score, they don't win, that's the point at the end of the day.
Q: What actually happened on the coverage on the Kupp touchdown?
A: Well, they hurried up to the line. It was just miscommunication on the back end. We're all accountable for that. We didn't communicate enough. That's what led to the touchdown.
Q: I know this didn't involve you, but what's it like when you see guys on the ground going at it after the game?
A: That's a question for Coach Judge. I didn't really see what was going on. I just saw a big commotion. I was confused. Honestly, I didn't know what was going on.
Q: What's it like for you guys as a defense when you see your offense struggling the way it has? What kind of effect does it have on your guys?
A: Like I said, if they don't score, they don't win. We try to take pride in that. Each time we're on the field, we try to limit the offense to zero points on the board. Unfortunately, we didn't do that. We just have to keep getting better, look at the film, correct our mistakes and move on to next week.
Q: You didn't hold them to zero, but you held them down pretty low compared to what they had been doing. When you've got them in such a tight game, is it frustrating to watch the offense not be able to pick up the slack?
A: It's frustrating to lose in general. It was frustrating when we gave that deep touchdown pass to Coop and I wasn't able to get him on the ground. I was frustrated with that. There are going to be points in the game where you're frustrated, but you have to keep going on. If you run out of time at the end of the game, you have to move on to the next game. So, we're moving on to Dallas next week.
