5 Questions with Marvin Jones

The veteran middle linebacker voiced his opinion on John Abraham's comments.

Q: What was your reaction to the comments made by John Abraham?


Jones: Everybody has a different view about it and about how things are going. I wouldn't necessarily say I was shocked by it.  At a time like this, a lot of people are frustrated.


Q: A lot of people are frustrated, but not everybody goes around being that open with their feelings.


Jones: That's true, but I've been in situations and I've learned over the years, certain things you can say and certain things you can't say. We're all in this together. That's the important thing. Football is not a perfect game. It's a game of opportunities and you have to take advantage of your opportunities.


Q: Do you see the need to sit down with John and talk to him?


Jones: I don't think that's necessarily my job. He's a grown man, and everybody makes decisions to do whatever it is they choose to do. That's how he was feeling and he said it. What can I possibly do? I can suggest, but I can't tell somebody what they should and shouldn't do.


Q: Are you put off or ticked off at all by the things he said?


Jones: I'm not ticked off at anybody. I've got my own **** to worry about. I've got enough to worry about what Marvin has to do.


Q: Do you think the defense was playing a little too loosely with that lead in the second half?


Jones: I don't get into why we do things, I just go out and try to do it as best as I can. No matter what the situation, my job is to go out and do the best that I can. I don't try to get into the coaches head about whether he should have called this or should have called that.
