Q. It obviously hurt you though that your home team –

A: As soon as it came out, I was like 'I didn't even mean to do all of that'. That's not what really what I really meant to do.

Q. It seemed like it genuinely hurt you though that your hometown team passed you up on draft day.

A: I wouldn't say it genuinely hurt me, but like you're sitting there, kind of waiting, just have to wait longer that's all. I wouldn't say anything about it hurting me.

Q. So you think (Commanders wide receiver Terry) McLaurin is going to use that as fuel for the next time?

A: I don't know, he might just look at it and be like, whatever, but I don't know. Hopefully, I don't know, maybe he does.

Q. What did your coach say to you about it? He told us that he didn't really approve of it.

A: It was just a bad decision on my part. He always talks about just being a real professional on my end.

Q. That's what he told you?

A: No, it was just a bad decision by me, that's all.

Q. Is it one of those things where you just get emotionally wrapped up in, like we know what a postgame locker room is like and how emotional and exciting wins get?

A: Yeah, it was just a big road, division win. I just got a little carried away with the trash-talk a little bit, that's on me.

Q. Is this going to change your approach on how you think about trash talk?

A: It's just like I told you, it's a lesson learned for me. That's never happened to me before like just to be thrown out like that. It's just a lesson learned.

Q. What did that feel like when you realized it went viral?

A: I didn't mean for that to happen like it did. I didn't know it was going to be as big as it was. It was just an accident.

Q. So the fact that they have no hot water in the showers there, I mean maybe that you were like oh maybe I don't actually want to play here.

A: I mean that doesn't matter. As I said, bad decision on my part.

Q. Did any of the guys talk to you about it? Or did you talk to the older vets on the team?

A: No, not really. They didn't say too much.

Q. What do you think you've shown any team that passed you up during your rookie season? Like obviously, you're playing well, what do you think you've shown teams that passed you up about, you know some guys keep lists of teams that pass them up. What do you think you've shown teams that passed you up about what kind of player you are?

A: I'm not worried about what I've shown them. I just really worry about what I show the Giants, so I guess just keep being me.

Q. What do you think you've shown the Giants?

A: That I'm a good player and keep getting better every week.

Q. How do you think your rookie season has gone? How would you kind of sum up your season so far?

A: I've had some rough moments but there also are some great moments too, so I just have to keep getting better.

Q. What do you look at as some of the rough moments or great moments that stand out?

A: I really can't picture anything, but I've had some bad plays and I've had some good plays so just have to keep getting better.

Q. What are your personal goals for these six games?

A: Finish strong and just keep getting better every week.
