Postgame Giants Player Reaction


Safety Kenny Phillips

*On the win:

*It's a great win and a great Christmas present. We all enjoy playing this game and we had a lot of fun.

*On beating the Jets:

*They did a lot of talking and we let our play do the talking for us. We will just leave it at that.

*On the team:

*It was a great week of practice. Everybody's morale was up and everybody had a positive attitude. Everybody bought into the scheme and was trying to get to the ball. We just had fun today. It was a great feeling but we have to win one more to get to where we want to go. This is just the beginning and if we don't take care of business next week, this was all for nothing. It was a great win.

*Did you feel the Jets were going after your secondary?

*A little bit but our guys up front did a great job. Especially our corners got their hands on the receivers and disrupted a lot of the pass routes. It was a great overall win. That is what 'team' is about.

*On being disrespected by the Jets:

*We felt very disrespected. Especially in our secondary, they were saying we can't do this and we can't do that. But like I said, I think we proved that we are capable of playing great ball.

**S Antrel Rolle

On forcing the Jets to throw the ball so much:

*We were pretty effective at stopping the run. They tried to present a lot of different things to us. They were trying to run some gadget plays and things of that nature.

*On the defense:

*We played great team defense today. We were relentless. We played great team ball. We forced some turnovers. We never buckled. We stayed relentless and kept our eyes on the prize. We have to keep our eye on the prize and understand that this is just the beginning of the battle. We are in playoff mode right now. We understand that and our coaches did a great job of preparing us all week. We had a game plan and we stuck to it 100 percent.
