DT Chris Canty on recent struggles

Q: The defense is ranked 30th in the league. Does that blow you away?
A: Yeah. That’s a fall from grace. It’s tough to realize that’s the position that we’re in, that’s the quality of work that we put together. But the facts are the facts. That’s what it is. It’s disappointing. I’m sure that every guy on the defense in this locker room would say that. So for whatever reason we didn’t put our best effort on a consistent basis throughout the season, but with every game there is an opportunity to turn that around.

Q: Is it hard to watch the film and see all these talented players and many of the same pieces from the Super Bowl and field a different product?
A: It’s definitely frustrating to know what we’re capable of doing and not being able to perform at that level. It’s frustrating. You don’t really have a whole lot of answers for it. It’s just foolish

Q: How rough is it not knowing that you might not even play this Sunday?
A: It’s tough. You’re a competitor and you’re working hard. It’s not just for you, but it’s for the guys in this locker room as well, the guys on the defense, the defensive line and it’s almost like if you don’t have an opportunity to be able to go out there… I don’t want to let my guys down, especially with the importance of this football game for us still having an opportunity to be in the postseason albeit a lot of circumstances have to fall in the right place, but there’s still an opportunity. I’m fighting hard and I’m in here getting treatment just to make sure that I give myself the absolute best chance to be out there on that field on Sunday.
