The big story this week will undoubtedly be the much-anticipated Josh Norman-Odell Beckham, Jr. rematch, whether it will be as nasty as last time, whether any of them will talk trash, and whether Beckham will be able to control his emotions -- something he was unable to do when they faced off last year.
So what does Ben McAdoo think about that?
"We'll hit more on the next opponent on Wednesday," he said.
"We're still on the Saints," McAdoo said. "We're cleaning up the Saints right now. We'll move on to Washington later on."
OK, so McAdoo is looking backwards not forwards -- at least this week, anyway. Whatever. Tune in Wednesday for more (hopefully) of Beckham-Norman. Until then, here are the rest of the highlights of McAdoo's conference call with the media on Monday:
- RB Rashad Jennings "banged up his hand" in the second half. He is expected to practice on Wednesday, but he'll be limited. "We'll see how that goes," McAdoo said.
- RT Marshall Newhouse (calf) will not practice at the start of the week, but McAdoo wouldn't rule him out later in the week. Bobby Hart and Will Beatty will get the chance to compete for playing time in Newhouse's spot if he can't go.
- S Mykkele Thompson has a knee injury and will be out "a few weeks," McAdoo said.
- McAdoo said his defense has been "very aggressive attacking the receivers" and throwing off the rhythm of quarterbacks, even though the pass rush has generated only two sacks so far -- both from blitzing defensive backs. "We may not be getting the sacks," he said, "but we're getting the pressure on the quarterback." The coverage is also forcing quarterbacks to "hold it a tick longer" than they'd like. Because of that, McAdoo said "We feel the sacks will come."
