Vikings DT Chris Hovan
Q: How much do you sense the desperation that the Giants will likely bring into this game?
A: There is nothing like a wounded animal. A wounded animal - anytime you back a guy into a corner and he is wounded he is always going to fight back that much harder. The Giants are trying to get a win. They've played some close games and they are a very good and well coached team under Jim Fassel. They are going to come in here hungry, trying to get the win, especially against us. So like I said before, always be fearful of a wounded animal.
Q: Why is the interception number so high from your safeties?
A: Well first we have ball hogging safeties - we have two great safeties; Corey Chavous has always been an established player in this league and Brian Russell is really trying to fit into his own right now but it is two things - it is rush and it's coverage. We had five sacks on Denver; we kept hitting them and hitting them and those timely throws weren't on time because we were getting in his face and we were drilling him to the ground. It is like I said before - it is coverage and rush, coverage and rush and when those things work hand in hand great things happen.
Q - Is it that noticeable that Kerry Collins doesn't have time in the pocket?
A: Well it is just the way things are in this league; people get hurt and you do have to shuffle your line and put the best players in there. They have been having a little bit of a tough time right now; they have three rookies starting inside right now. We all know that Luke Petitgout is a great offensive tackle so we think they are going to do a lot more slide and a lot more mass protection to give Kerry some time so we have to get ready for that. We have to click our heels when it is time to go rush and rush.
