Are you worried about Jessie Armstead this week jiving with the Giants before the game?
If he wants to say hello to his pals I understand that. The part I don't really like is when they're laughing and giggling and jiving and all of that stuff. To me, when the game ends there's a winner and loser and the loser should act like a loser. That's just the way that I look at it, and as you know sometimes some guys have a way of getting over losses than I think they should. So that's a part we're if we get our butts beat fellas we don't need to be out there laughing and giggling with guys on the other team. Say hello and get your butt off the field and lets try to get better and make sure that doesn't happen a lot of times to us.
What are your thoughts about coming up here for this NFC East Division battle?
Well, we're starting a lot of our division games now, five of the last seven. If we're going to get back in that division hunt, we're trying to get back even with the Giants. It'll be a tough game. They are a good team, and I'm impressed with their defensive team and their offensive team. So, anyways, we're trying to play well and trying to get ourselves a victory if we can.
Is there anything about preparing for NFL defenses week in and week out that surprises you or that you didn't expect?
Certainly the defenses are better. The types of coverages are basically not that complicated. I wish I could say, 'Man, I've never seen these coverages before.' All good defenses pretty much keep their coverage schemes so everybody knows what to do. It's not like we've been confused. It's just that we haven't executed quite as well. We haven't gotten open as well as we had hoped and hadn't thrown it or pass-blocked it or whatever. For some reason we haven't hit as well as I had hoped. But we're still plugging along. Every now and then we look like we know what we're doing. And every now and then we just look like we've got a bunch of wasted plays, the quarterback just throws it up in the stands somewhere or out of bounds. We're trying to get better.
Kenny Watson played well against Seattle, but without Davis you struggled...
Yeah, I don't know the reason for that. Sometimes we get backed up and we start up backed up and have had a few little drives. We have not done very well and I'll be the first one to admit it, and we've got a lot of improving to do.
Has the NFL not seen what your offense is all about yet?
I certainly hope not. I certainly hope that this is not the final product that we are going to put out on the field. Right now this is our team and we're going to try to make the very most of it, the best that we can achieve this year. And we're still a pretty good team. We can still play a lot better than what we're doing. But in the future we hope to be a much better offense than we are showing right now.
Have you found yourself having to put more hours into an NFL week than you did in college?
Oh certainly a little bit more, but you have so much more. There's not a whole lot going on during the day and you have all of Tuesday to do your game planning. So, yeah, we probably put a little bit more in. But you can only put so many plays in, and you can only coach so many and call so many in a game. So you cant have a new offense every week, you just try to get a feel of what the other team does defensively and try to plug in the plays that you've repped and repped and repped over the last nine or ten months.
