LaMont Jordan Quotes

That's one thing I'm not used to coming from New York. I got news for the rest of the league. That team (the Patriots) is not changing. If the league thinks that team is changing because it lost two coordinators, it isn't. They minimize mistakes. That's something we've got to do.

Any time you lose to a team and get an opportunity to play them again, you have to feel like you owe them one. Not taking anything away from those guys, but we just didn't make the plays up there [New England] offensively. Overall as a team, we have a big test next week. My main focus right now is how well we are going to do against the Patriots.

#Opportunity

For me to be a starting running back in the NFL and somebody says that I could play 16 games, but I won't get 1,000 yards, for me I look at it as a slap in the face. That's one of those slaps where I say, 'OK, you can slap me once. But at the end of the season, I want to make sure I'm hitting you back with a powerful punch.'

Are we going to get out of this hole and get back to being the team that people expect us to be? Or are we going to continue to dig deep and come Week 9 or 10, we're making plans for the holidays? I don't plan on doing that.

In that locker room, if you were in there, you got a sense of how the team was hurt. You get a sense that we are not giving up, and that's something big. I think that is something the fans really need to know ? that we might have lost this game and things aren't looking too bright for us right now, but we're not giving up and that's just pretty much the mind-set of the team right now.

#Hurt

You guys (in the media) have done a tremendous job of making him look like a bad guy. But I've been most impressed by Randy. I didn't know what to expect because I didn't know him. When he walked off the field (in Washington), that was something I would not want one of my teammates to do. But I also don't know what the situation was in Minnesota. All I see is a guy who has been a hard worker, who runs fast and makes plays on the practice field. He shows a lot of emotion on the field; he seems to be all about winning. He doesn't come across as an outcast. He doesn't come across in a negative way.

I'm always going to come off the field feeling like if we don't do well running the ball that it's my fault. That's just it. The team trusts me with the ball in my hands and to go out and make plays, and it's my job to go out there and make plays.

It's the best I've felt after a game, that's for sure. It's a good feeling getting a victory. I'm nowhere near as beat up as I was last week, and I feel pretty good that I can walk off the field and leave the stadium with a smile on my face.
