Greer Recaps Giants Game
 
What were your thoughts on last night’s game after reviewing the film?

“I thought we performed well. We did a good job of tackling, minimizing explosive plays, swarming to the football, and populating the football. We did a good job of forcing them to turn the ball over and keeping them to field goals early in the game. Anytime you can do that, you can be successful.”

What are your thoughts on Drew Brees?

“He’s a guy that does the work that’s needed to be successful. You see the success he has on Sunday, but he and all the quarterbacks work tirelessly. They’re the first ones in here and the last ones gone. They are meticulous with their preparation. You see the work and the effort that they put in being paid off. He’s a great guy and a humble guy. You wouldn’t never know it if you didn’t know him, but he’s a guy that is truly one of those guys that you want to root for off the field as well. He’s a guy that is very humble and approachable and is a team-first guy.”

When you’re a defensive back facing an elite quarterback like Drew Brees when he’s in the zone, what is your game plan against those kinds of quarterbacks?

“As a corner, you just have to hold up and allow your guys to get there. If a guy can elude the rush and create time for himself to throw the ball, what else can you do but be in position on your guy and try to make a play? If a quarterback can elude the rush and give himself time to throw the ball, that’s deadly.”

How would you say the defensive players on the team relate to Drew Brees?

“He’s just one of the guys. He’s a great guy to be around. That’s one thing that we have in this locker room. We have no larger-than-life personalities, Drew included. These guys are humble, they’re approachable, and they’re men of character. It’s great playing with them. We relate to him just like we relate to each other. He’s a guy we can joke with just like we joke with everybody else.”

Full recap.
