Quarterback Daniel Jones
Q: With (Jason) Garrett being relieved of his duties, how does it affect you?
A: It certainly affects all of us. I think he was a big part of what we were doing on offense and obviously leadership there, so I'll miss him. We'll certainly miss him, and he did a lot for us. We've got to keep moving forward and get ready to play the Eagles this week.
Q: What changes for you?
A: I think from a communication aspect, a game plan aspect going in, how we planned on the field, and then off the field there was a lot of communication in terms of approaching a game and the mindset to play, and leading an offense that he certainly helped me with. It's about moving forward now, understanding that we've got to keep going and it's on all of us to perform better at each of our jobs. We all have to play better and produce more.
Q: Is it tough knowing that Jason lost his job in part because you guys just haven't been productive enough?
A: Yeah. That's obviously a big part of how we all feel right now. I think if you don't feel like that, there's an issue and we all take responsibility in our lack of production. I certainly do. That's what makes it tough. Like I said, it's on all of us to perform better and to produce more.
Q: You haven't had any continuity. This will be your third different play caller in three years here. Not that you want to make excuses, but how much do you think that's hurt your development?
A: I haven't thought about that and I don't think that's something that I'm thinking about. My job is to prepare to play and play well. It's a production business and that's how you're judged, so it's my job to get ready to play.
Q: After the game, (Head Coach) Joe (Judge) had spoken to us first before you and (Running Back) Saquon (Barkley) and we were asking you about his comments about the offense. He was very specific about 'We need to coach better,' and not put it on the players as much. You're saying, 'It's up to us as players to execute.' You seemed a little bit surprised, but you took responsibility as a player. Were you surprised that it resulted in that change?
A: I think I still feel that. I feel responsibility for our lack of production as an offense. I feel that. I think we all should feel that, and I don't think that's changed today. I still feel like that. Coach Judge is going to make the decisions as the head coach, that's his job, but I don't think that should change how we feel about how we've played, the points we've scored, how we've done at times. I think we know we've got to do better. That falls on each one of us, on players and certainly me.
Q: I know it's early in the week, but do you expect dramatic changes in the scheme or just the way and style the offense will play on Sunday?
A: No, I don't think so. I think it'll be our system and our verbiage. I think there will be different aspects to it, but we'll go through the week, find what works, what we like going into Sunday. We'll see how that progresses.
Q: Were you one of the captains who was in the building yesterday that Judge talked to about all this?
A: Yeah, I spoke to Coach Judge yesterday.
Q: I'm assuming you spoke to Jason as well before he left. I'm not asking you to divulge the conversation, but what exactly was that like? What were your emotions? What can you reveal about what you guys talked about?
A: It was obviously a tough conversation and I think just him being the guy he is just wishing the best for us, wishing the best for me. I think that was most of that.
Q: Coach Judge said you guys have got to get (Wide Receiver) Kenny (Golladay) more targets. What is the fine line there of – I assume you can't just throw the ball to Kenny if he's covered. You can't just make him the number one option, so how do you get Kenny more involved if you still have to go through progressions and whatnot, and not force the ball to Kenny just to say he had seven targets?
A: I think it's just finding those opportunities when he is in a matchup we like or running a route that we like, and he's got to do a good job of getting open and winning in those situations. I think it's just finding those opportunities throughout the game and maybe calling some plays where he does have those chances. He's got to do a good job winning and I've got to do a good job throwing him the ball.
Q: You know obviously that the quarterback and the offense are kind of intertwined and it reflects on you. With the offensive coordinator change and with the players getting back healthy, do you think that the pressure is more on you now than it has been to produce and get things going?
A: I haven't really focused much on that. My focus is on preparing to play the best I can. That's what it always is regardless of the circumstances.
Q: Do you think Jason getting fired is unfair to him at this moment?
A: I think that Coach Judge has got to make decisions for the team and how he sees it and how he sees the team going forward. It's our job to execute and play our best, so that's what I'm focused on and that's where this team is.
