"We wanted to get him the ball on something, get him a catch. I was conscious of it, if there were certain plays that I could go his way, I was going to try and do that, but he only got a number of pass plays in there, but we got him one catch, which was good." - Eli Manning on the plan to get WR Hakeem Nicks a catch last night.
"My game has evolved since college. Watching Osi Umenyiora and those guys, I just pay close attention to what those guys do, and try to model my game after those guys. Those guys are the best defensive linemen in the NFL, so it’s hard not to take from those guys and make plays." - DE Adewale Ojomo on his ability to make things happen on defense
"I don’t have any control over any of that, so for me to say there is or there isn’t, you just have to do the very best you can with it. That’s not my decision. We just hope that these officials know the rules, know how to enforce them and can keep the game under control and keep order and hopefully they’ll be able to do that." - Tom Coughlin on starting the season with replacement officials
"I felt pretty good. I felt that I laid it all out there, special teams, running back; I felt I put my best effort in tonight. I put the ball on the ground but I felt like I responded and came back. I kept fighting and running hard. I still want to grow in this offense. And I feel like I belong here." - RB Andre Brown after his strong showing last night
"I felt like they cracked down and tried to run the ball a lot against us. We played base things out there tonight. Our run defense looked pretty good. I feel like everybody knows what they are doing. And that is what is important – that everybody is on the same page. If everyone is not on the same page, we have problems." - CB Michael Coe, who is starting in place of the injured Prince Amukamara
