Here is some of the reaction from New York Giants' players following Sunday's 36-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, dropping them to 0-5 on the season.
Prince Amukamara on being 0-5:
"It’s new to us but we’re not new to adversity. Like I said, everything’s getting repetitive, I mean, the energy before we go out to the game, it seems like everybody is all in, it seems like we’re about to go out and do something special but all three phases of the team have to play together and it doesn’t look like we did that today. It didn’t look like we finished. It was 22-21 in the third quarter. We just have to finish, man."
Amukamara on giving up 30 or more points five straight weeks:
"It’s definitely not acceptable. I know it’s getting repetitive but we just have to go back to work tomorrow. We have to learn from it, we have a game coming up in five days and I saw that (Chicago) lost, too, and I’m sure that they’re hungry for a win, so we just have to get prepared for Thursday."
Victor Cruz on whether or not the season is lost:
"We can't think like that. We can't think about the season becoming lost, we can't think about anything like that. We have to think about it one week at a time and that's the only thing we can control."
Justin Pugh on how quickly the game changed:
"That momentum in the third quarter… and then after that pick things started to unravel for us. We have to go out there and forget the last drive, forget that last play that went bad for us and drive on and make plays. It was a tough loss because we had it. I felt like we had a good game plan, we were fighting, we were playing hard and then in the fourth quarter we have to finish it."
Spencer Paysinger on the 0-5 start:
"It’s frustrating. I’m not going to lie to you and say it’s not frustrating. You play your heart out, this is your profession and the fact that it doesn’t go your way, as a team it just feels like we didn’t play a complete game. It kind of stings a little bit but like I said, you have a short mindset because now we have to go into Chicago. We’ve got a short turnaround. Tomorrow we’ve got to come in, probably watch this film a little bit and then turn our minds off of this and switch them on to Chicago. It hurts today but tomorrow’s a new day and you have to be ready."
David Diehl on trying to keep a positive attitude:
"It’s very important. That’s what this is all about. This game’s about believing in one another, continuing to fight and, like I said, as a leader, I’m going to continue to do whatever I can to bring the best out of my teammates. We’ve got a lot of season left, I’m not going to waver in any way, I’m going to continue to approach the game the way that I always do and fight."
