Hakeem Nicks, 06.16.09

Q. Hakeem, how do you feel out there? Are you getting more comfortable, the more reps you get?

A. Yeah, I am getting a lot more comfortable with the more reps. It is just a matter of how I handle it.

Q. How is it out there with Eli, and some of the new guys, in terms of memorizing all these plays and formations?

A. It is definitely a big step up, but it is definitely what I was looking forward to coming in. I am taking it one day at a time, and competing everyday.

Q. Are you having fun? It seems like you are catching some balls that are usually not too catchable?

A. My job is to catch the ball when it comes my way. That is what I look forward to doing.

Q. What is it like being a rookie out there amongst all these guys? They are one year removed from being world champs, and all of a sudden you get to work with these guys everyday.

A. It is something great, something that I will always cherish and remember. I came into a great organization and I am looking forward to the season, ready to play and prepare.

Q. How great is this opportunity that you have a position where there are some holes? Two veterans are not here anymore, and there is a position that maybe you could start from the get-go?

A. It is a great opportunity for me. I am looking forward to that challenge and to keep working hard and to get better every day.
