Jason Taylor's thoughts on Big Blue offense

"I'm not going to get into a war of words with Jeremy in the paper."-Dolphins DE Jason Taylor<BR><BR>

(On Tiki Barber, his fumbles and what he sees) "He's a good running back, number one. He's got a lot of speed. I was watching the St. Louis game this morning and he was just killing them on the outside, outrunning their corner to the edge every time. He has put the ball on the ground. We're aware of that and I'm sure he is aware of it and his coaches are aware of it and telling him about it. You've got to hit him and hopefully he can put some down on the ground for us and we can pick them up. He has had a problem with it and hopefully he continues it."

(On Jeremy Shockey) "I'm not going to get into a war of words with Jeremy in the paper. Jeremy is a friend of mine. He's a good friend of mine. He's a good guy. He's a good football player. He goes a little far sometimes with his mouth. He lets his mouth run a little bit and it gets him in trouble. But I like the way he plays and I like his aggressiveness and all that. It will be fun to battle with him. Jeremy is a good guy and he means well, but like I said, sometimes he says things that he shouldn't, that just aren't I guess politically correct, and gets into some trouble. But he's a great talent, a great tight end and someone we really need to be ready to play against. He poses a lot of threats and they use him real well."

(On the Giants having even more weapons than the Bills and how to defend all of them) "Kind of like you did against the Bills. Number one, you have to stop the running game. We were fortunate against the Bills to do that and put them in a one-dimensional game. The same thing pertains to the Giants. We've got to stop Tiki Barber and the running game. We can't let him get going. We've got to put the ball in Kerry Collins' hands and hope to cover down all the guys they've got. They've got Armani Toomer and Shockey and Barber out of the backfield and (Ike) Hilliard. They've got a lot of guys that can play. It's amazing how much talent they have on their offensive side of the ball. It's not going to get any easier this week or the following week or whatever, so we've got to keep playing well and find a way to stop them."
