WR Hakeem Nicks Transcript


Q: How do you feel about the Giants not signing Plaxico Burress?A: That is not something that I worry about. I worry about what goes on over here and I control what I control. I work on getting better at what I can get better at and contribute to the team the best way possible. 

Q: Do you feel like you will be depended on this season without Steve Smith?A: You can look at it like that but it is also an opportunity for other guys as well. I am going to continue to do my part as a wide receiver and that is to make plays.

Q: Do you feel like a leader?A: You can say that a leadership role plays into effect now. I have guys coming up asking questions about stuff. I am very familiar with the system now so it is a matter of me being a help to my teammates.

Q: What did you think about the Giants considering signing Plaxico Burress?A: I didn't think about it.

Q: What do you think about him as a player?A: I think he is a great player. He has been blessed to have another opportunity, but like I said, I worry about what I can control and I'm here right now.

Q: What is one thing you want to accomplish this season?A: Finish a whole season.

Q: How frustrating is it to have injuries?A: It could be frustrating if you let it but it is football. Like I said, it is physical and anything could happen. You have to go out there and hope for the best at all times.

Q: Are there limited effects to your injury?A: No it is completely out of the way.

Q: Do you feel good?A: Yes I feel pretty good.

Q: How do you feel your role will be this season?A: We will see. Steve (Smith) definitely plays a big role in the slot and on third down conversions. His presence was definitely missed but we have guys that will have to step up to the plate and get it done.
