Michael Strahan
He is going to be a great head coach. I'll be really surprised if he doesn't get a job somewhere. He's done a great job with this unit and he's made it exciting. He's made me want to go out there and play like I was young again. I'm proud to play for Tim and, unselfishly, I hope I'm not playing for him next year.

We're sympathetic, but once you step on the field, football is football. That guy across from me is not trying to be my friend. We're not going out there to put on a show and let these guys win the game.

I think this can be a championship team. But we do have to take it one game at a time. You can't look at the end of the road before you get the next foot in.

They were basically throwing the ball up and had some fun with it. We gave up too many big plays. It was too easy, too obvious for them. This isn't rocket science.

The fact that we're in the playoffs doesn't mean anything to us, to be honest with you. Hopefully, we can accomplish our goal of going into the playoffs on a winning note.

We've been doing some things well, but we know we have to work on some things. We can be a very good football team. We can do some things in the playoffs, but we're going to have to play better.

I know Eli gets a lot of flak, but for some reason when he is in the game I just feel like we've always got a shot. Eli is always going to give us a chance to win, and that's what you need.

It was a punch to the face. There are other ways to block people. He said it was an accident, so I'll have to take him at his word. But it's dangerous to go at somebody's head to stop them. You can end somebody's career by poking them in the eye. But I'll be okay.

You want to make something happen on defense, and for a guy who is managing a game or just kind of sits backs there and tries to pick you apart, it is a little frustrating. Defensively you want that one opportunity to make something happen. When you have a guy who plays smart like that, it makes it a little bit more difficult.

You can always come in and be hard, then get a little bit easier to work with than to be easy and all of a sudden try to be hard. He must have known what he was doing because we're here [in the playoffs]. All of [the rules] mean nothing unless you make it mean something. And right now no one is making that stuff really matter at all.

I appreciate that without a doubt. Great quarterback. I just look at it as going up against Kerry Collins, who is playing for the Raiders now. Nothing more.

You show up every year, you work your butt off, and it's only for one thing. You do it all to try to get to the Super Bowl and win it. That's what keeps you going. You always think you have a chance.

The first two preseason games I was still like, 'OK if I stick my arm out there like I did when I messed it up, will it happen again?' ... Then against the Jets I did it to Curtis Martin. And you know what? Nothing happened. I think the more you play and the more you use it like I usually would, the less I think about it. Right now I really don't think about it at all.

To be honest, that's the last body part I'm concerned about because it doesn't bother me in the least. There's no residual effect at all. Look, I'm here to play and if I go out there and something else gets hurt, that's part of football.

It's scary. I've never seen anyone who's so quick, and fast, and powerful, and is such a smart football player. In my opinion, and I know he's gotten a lot of accolades, but he's probably the best all-around football player in the league.

Michael Strahan
It's incredible. To watch those guys move the ball, control the ball, control the clock, put up points ... First of all, I think the crowd enjoys it, because I don't think they've had an offense like that to cheer for a while. And defensively, we enjoy it because it keeps us off the field and it puts points on the board.

All camps are hard, that's what they're intended to be. They make you focus when you're tired, when you don't feel like doing things, and to see how long you can retain and pay attention.
