"I don't worry about that stuff," Fassel said. "I don't even think about it. I am not thinking about what is going to happen if we win four or if we lose four. I don't sit around thinking about that. I am busy enough doing other things. I really don't, I don't worry about it.'
Fassel was asked if he is on the "hot seat."
"No, I coach this football team," he said. " I guess by taking the job you are always on the hot seat, from the day that I took it. Nothing in my mind has changed."
In the locker room, some players spoke up in defense of Fassel.
"I don't want to see another coach come in here," Michael Strahan said. "I don't see why we should. I think coach Fassel has done a great job in the six years that he's been here. When we go to the Super Bowl we had two starters (on defense) miss two games. This year, a lot of guys are on IR. Or we have guys that are not on IR, but they're hurt. We're putting guys in there that don't have the experience we'd like to have, but they're doing their best. I don't want to see another coach come in here."
