Q: Do you think a forced fumble, a sack, and a tackle for a loss will help you in roster decisions?

A: Yeah, I think it’ll work in my favor, but like I say, there’s a lot of different factors that play into this. You have special teams, defense; there are a lot of different phases of the game. I just need to fit into what they do, and I hope I do.

Q: Do you feel like you’ve been a surprise to the coaches?

A: No, I don’t consider myself a surprise, maybe to the coaches, but not to myself. I believe in God, first and foremost, and I believe in myself. If you believe in those two things, it’ll all work out for you, that’s my motto.

Q: If you don’t make the Giants roster, do you think you earned a spot elsewhere?

A: Well I can’t answer that question. The other 31 teams in the NFL have to evaluate the film and make that decision themselves.

Q: The NFL is usually too fast for rookies. What have you done to slow everything down and play so well?

A: Like I said earlier, I just put my faith in God and He gives me the courage and the strength to go out there and do what I need to do. Another thing I do is I calm myself down. I don’t get too "rah-rah" before the game, I get really relaxed, and that actually slows the game down for me.

Q: What have the veteran guys been saying to you?

A: Those guys, Kenny Phillips, Antrel Rolle, the UM guys, they’re really proud of me. They’re just really supportive of me.

Q: You said this week that you would get sacks, and you did:

A: Most definitely. I’m confident in myself and I’m confident in my abilities. I don’t think I’m a fluke, I think I can go out there each and every week, every Sunday, and do what I need to do.

Q: Thoughts on your ability to make things happen on defense:

A: Coach Robert Nunn. My game has evolved since college. Watching Osi Umenyiora and those guys, I just pay close attention to what those guys do, and try to model my game after those guys. Those guys are the best defensive linemen in the NFL, so it’s hard not to take from those guys and make plays.

Q: Did you expect to start today?

A: No, not at all. I play my role, I’m a role player, whatever the coaches need me to do, I’m going to do.
