Wide Receiver Wan'Dale Robinson

Q: What's your comfort level coming out of the preseason now that the real games are here? How did you think you did in the preseason?

A: I felt like I did alright. It's a little bit harder to get in a groove without being in the full game and all that. Just going over everything with the coaches after the games and feeling like I'm in a good spot right now. I've just got to keep moving forward.

Q: How comfortable are you with your role? How comfortable are you that you can make a big impact on the Giants six days from now?

A: I'm comfortable with whatever they ask me to do. Really trying to do whatever I can to help our team win. I'm not going to sit here and say I'm going to do so many things and what not. Everything I can to do to help us win is all I'm going to do.

Q: Did you set goals? Did you set any individual goals for targets, catches, or touchdowns? Did you make a list somewhere?

A: No, I didn't. I've never been a goal person. Just always going out there, trying to do my job and whatever comes, comes.

Q: Can you tell me what your expectations are for the first game? In your history how have you done in first games, high school, college? Are you usually pretty good at winning those games?

A: For the most part, yeah. I remember about every one in high school we won. In college, my second year at Nebraska we didn't win the first game but after that we won all the first games, so it's been pretty good to me. Hopefully we keep that tradition going of winning.

Q: What is the feeling in the building about that first game? There hasn't been a lot of first game success there. What is the sense of importance and expectation for game one?

A: We're all just excited to get going. It's the real thing now, obviously, we all believe that we can win and we're going to do everything that we can to come out with a win.

Q: Do you feel that being '1-0' can help springboard any team?

A: Yeah, definitely. Anytime you win a football game it's a good thing. We're just trying to go '1-0' every week.

Q: What are your emotions heading into Sunday? So many people have doubted you along the way and this is sort of the culmination of a dream for you.

A: It'll be a lot of emotions. I'll be excited, I'll be a little bit nervous, I'm sure. But at the end of the day, it's just playing football and I can't worry too much about that. (I've) got a job to do.

Q: What's the biggest thing you've learned about the NFL throughout the preseason?

A: You really see it's a business, this is really a job and each and every day you really have to come out and earn it. Do what you're supposed to do each and every day.

Q: Do you have any friends, family, anybody coming to watch your first game?

A: Yeah, this will probably be the biggest one for me. This is the closest one I have home to Kentucky. From my hometown it's really about like three and a half hours. This will be the biggest one that I have with the support system around.

Q: How many are you thinking?

A: I've heard from a lot of people, more than I can count on both hands. It'll be quite a bit.

Q: (Head) Coach (Brian) Daboll told us that (Offensive Coordinator) Mike Kafka's going to keep calling the plays here in the regular season? What do you like about him as a play caller and the way he gets guys involved in a rhythm?

A: He knows how to get the guys matched up. He's going to get us in a groove and get us going. Knows when to take the shots and things like that and get us in the best plays each and every play.

Q: What kind of a resource is (Wide Receiver) Sterling (Shepard)? If I look at you, Sterling and (Wide Receiver) Kadarius (Toney), I think you guys are all best in the slot. How effective can you guys be playing together?

A: I think it can be really effective. At the end of the day, you want guys that can separate and go out there and make plays. I feel like we all do a really good job of that. I think our coaches are going to do a really good job of mixing us in and doing what they have to do to get us all the ball, whenever they need to.

Q: A lot of us are wondering what's going to happen out on the field Sunday. Do you guys think you might have an advantage when you play a team that doesn't know what you're going to throw out there?

A: For us, we're going to go with our gameplan and do what we have to do. For them, I don't know exactly how their gameplan is or anything like that, so I can't really say if it's an advantage for us or them. At the end of the day, we've got to go out and do what we're supposed to do and do our jobs.

Q: Do you have any idea what the gameplan is?

A: Yeah, we've got that, but that's really more in-house. I guess you'll see more so what the gameplan is on Sunday.

Q: Can you give us copies?

A: (Laughs) No, none of that.

answered the questions professionally. Hope things go really well for him this year.
Wan’dale, you did next to nothing in the exhibition games.

We really don’t know much about you. I’ll tell you this there is no light switch. You don’t just switch it on and go. We need to know more about our second round pick.

There was someone who was injured all preseason and was the ire of an entire fanbase before breaking all sorts of records once he made an appearance. If the kid is the goods he will show it. Look at Jamar Chase he had about as bad a preseason as one could have and lit the league up when it counted. Preseason means nothing.
