LB Mathias Kiwanuka Interview


Q: Do you still think about that game against Philadelphia last year?

A: No. I think we put that all to rest. I think we understand what we have on this team and what we can get done when we play well and we play together. I think once we get finished preparing all of the schemes, all of the Xs and Os, it's just about getting that battle started.

Q: How do you stop LeSean McCoy?

A: Just do what you're supposed to do. We all have athletes, but we have the athletes that are capable of making stops on anybody in this league. As long as we are all doing what we're asked to do on the defense, we'll be alright.

Q: Do you laugh about this Dream Team stuff?

A: That's why you don't label a team that early in the season. There are so many things that could happen. They could still come back and have a strong finish towards the end, but as of right now I think people are looking at them kind of sideways for saying that. But regardless of what they call themselves, we're going to have to just go out there and be prepared to fight.

Q: What do you expect this weekend?

A: Just a battle. The bottom line is our division is strong. Whenever you get two teams that know each other that well, it's not going to be a whole lot of tricks and gadgets. It's going to be line-up and do what you do best and just make sure you beat the man across from you.

Q: When you played at Philadelphia, it was the first of five come-from-behind victories this season. What did that show you guys?

A: It was a big emphasis. I don't know if we recognized it at the time, but it was a big building block for this team to be able to have faith in us coming from behind and doing whatever needs to be done to get the win. We'll take that. We'll build on it. I think we've been doing a good job so far.

Q: Is there a connection to that game and the other games you've been able to come-from-behind to win? A: Whenever you get a chance to see it in action it gives you a little bit more confidence when you find yourself in that same situation. Even going back to last week when were sitting on the sidelines, once Eli got the ball in his hands, there was no doubt that we were going to close that game out. Obviously it didn't happen that way, but from the standpoint of the defensive guys, we believe 100 per cent in our offense. We know that they can get those kinds of games closed out. We just hope that we put ourselves in a better situation so they don't have to keep doing it over and over again.
