Safety Jabrill Peppers
Q: How did you take (Head Coach Joe) Judge's halftime challenge to show more effort?
A: I took it well.
Q: Did you think there was any lack of effort or want to on the field on Sunday?
Q: How did you feel the team came out today, especially coming off a tough game like that?
A: We came out well.
Q: What do you guys feel like you still have to prove?
A: What do you mean?
Q: You're 1-5, four games out of the division lead. It's not really like last year.
A: Nobody cares about that. We've got a job to do. We come out here and do it.
Q: You've always been a sparkplug for this team, igniting the enthusiasm out there on the field. When things get tough like this, how do you keep that momentum and positivity?
A: Just remember why you do it.
Q: What's the level of urgency for this team right now? How do you view that?
A: There's always been a level of urgency. You just have to take it up a couple of notches.
Q: It doesn't change as the losses pile up? You realize at some point this has got to turn, right?
A: You always have to have a sense of urgency.
Q: Are you disgusted right now with where this season is?
A: I'm just motivated to play better and get this thing turned around.
Q: You're not always this man of so few words. Is there a specific reason for that at the moment?
A: No, not really.
Q: Obviously, you're not the coach, but what would you say is the mood of the team?
A: Just got to get better.
Q: Your team has had to play games without (Running Back) Saquon (Barkley). The Panthers are doing that without (Panthers Running Back Christian) McCaffrey. Do you look at them and say they are different because he's such a runner and receiver? Are they kind of different with him and without him?
A: It's the next man up. Everybody has capable people when people go down, so it's all about the next man up. We respect the next guy just as such. Obviously, C-Mac is C-Mac, but you've got to respect the next man up.
Q: How does their offense look though?
A: They're good.
Q: How different does it look with him and without him?
A: They still look good.
Q: The trade deadline is two weeks away. Your name is one that comes up a lot. Do you want to be here? Do you expect to be here?
A: I just want to win, baby. I want to make plays, go out there and win ball games.
