WR Hakeem Nicks on Atlanta's secondary

Q: Coach said that you seemed to be getting better as the week went on. Is that how you feel?
A: Yeah. I feel good and I’m ready to play. Big game. We need it. Focused on playing team ball and get the job done.

Q: Roddy White said he and Julio Jones are the best pair of wideouts in the league. Is that ringing a bell?
A: I think that was earlier in the year, but that isn’t anything we’re focusing on. We’re focusing on playing team ball and doing what we’ve got to do to get this win for our team and our organization.

Q: What do you see from Atlanta’s secondary?
A: They’re a good team. They’ve got that record for a reason. They play good team ball. They fly around, but at the end of the game with any defense you see are things you can take advantage of, but we’ve just got to hit them when those opportunities come.

Q: Each week you’ve been saying you feel a little bit more like yourself. Is that still the case?
A: Yeah. That’s definitely still the case. I feel real good actually right now. This week… I had a good practice today, yesterday as well. The legs are feeling pretty good, so I’m looking forward to playing.

Q: Do you think practicing less this week was beneficial for you?
A: Yeah. It’s definitely been beneficial. They always do a good job of resting me at the right time and then turning me on. This time of the season, we know what’s at stake. It’s just we do what we’ve got to do to be ready to play in the game.

Q: Did you do a lot these past couple of weeks?
A: Not really. I kind of just have been doing the same. A few reps every period, plays that I need to make sure I need to be in there with me and Eli getting down and just little stuff like that trying to take advantage of.
