Q: So, it looked like you had fun today.

A: Yeah, it was a lot of fun. Anytime you win in this league, it's a challenge. Proud of the way the guys went out and played today, competed at a high level and we enjoyed the moment.

Q: Did you think you made a statement the last two games? You threw for what, 319 last week, 296 this week. I mean, you can be a starter, I think.

A: Yeah, I mean I definitely have all the faith and confidence in myself that I can play as a starter in this league. Yeah, I don't always control that as well and I think it's just about staying ready, being ready for the moment and taking advantage of the opportunity when it presents itself and today, as a team, we were able to do so and finish the season ultimately on a good note.

Q: I mean you threw some great balls.

A: Thank you.

Q: It was a great touch on that one to (running back) Saquon (Barkley) and (tight end Darren) Waller down the sideline.

A: Yeah, I think we talked about it last week, just trusting the guys one-on-one, down the field, giving them a chance to make a play. I have ultimate confidence in those guys, they compete at a high-level week-in and week-out. When you give guys a chance to make a play, they show what they can do.

Q: What did you think of ending the season? Was a win important today?

A: For sure. A win is always important. Anytime you're keeping score, a win is important. But to finish the season on a good note. Obviously we have no idea what the team looks like next year and that's not up to us. All we can control is this very moment and we talk each and every week about finishing strong and you take that into today's aspect, it's yeah, finish the season strong, finish each play strong and ultimately, we were able to do that against a division opponent and better our division record from last year. It's always positives to take away. Ultimately, it wasn't the season that we wanted to have but to end it on a good note against a division opponent, it feels very good.

Q: One of the things that everybody was talking about was seeing (wide receiver) Shep(ard Sterling), who probably played his final game as a Giant. What did it mean to you to get him three throws, break (former Giants tight end Jeremy) Shockey's, move past Shockey.

A: Yeah, it means everything. Shep last year dealt with some injuries, but he never let that get in the way who of he was as a person. Each and every day he came in the building, creating energy for the guys, in the midst of him dealing with trying to bounce back from an injury and even this year, maybe not having the biggest role that he may have wanted, but still supporting the guys, supporting the younger guys in the wide receiver room and still being the energy, the heartbeat for our team. We knew how many catches he needed going into this game and tried to get him a catch him there right before half, but we were able to get him a couple in the second half to be able to move him into that top five. Shep is a good friend of mine, proud of him, proud of the career that he's had here and the legacy he's going to leave and glad to be a part of it as well.
