“We’re rolling right now,” he said. “We’ve got some momentum, and we dug ourselves a pretty deep hole, but the NFC East on the whole is struggling so we still have a shot.”
It didn’t help that the Cowboys, Eagles and Redskins all won their games Sunday, but even so, for the Giants to make any noise, they’ll pretty much have to win all of their games anyway.
“Sitting at 0-6, if we just get this first win, we don’t know what we’re capable of,” Weatherford said. “We’ve ran off two in a row, and once you get that momentum, crazy things can happen.”
Weatherford said the bye came at a great time as far as getting a few players, including Andre Brown, Brandon Jacobs, Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks healthy, but he also said maybe the timing wasn’t so great after all.
“This is the first time in my nine years in the National Football League that I haven’t wanted to take my bye week,” he said.
It’s tough not to look too far ahead given the daunting task of trying to win all eight remaining games, but the team really just needs to take one game at a time.
“I do feel like it’s attainable if we manage the football and do what we’ve been able to do over the last two weeks,” Weatherford said. “We’ve got three home games in a row.”
The first of those home games is Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, and for what it’s worth, Terrelle Pryor and Darren McFadden were both injured in the team’s loss to the Eagles.
