Here is some of the reaction from the New York Giants' locker room following Sunday's hard-to-swallow 25-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Head coach Tom Coughlin on what the 0-2 Giants do now:

"What else do you do? You work as hard as you can. You run around like a crazy man. You get your coaches to apply themselves even harder. You get the players to apply themselves even harder. You know what? I look out there. They're men. We're all men. Stop feeling sorry for ourselves. We had an opportunity and we let it slip. There's no one to blame but ourselves."

Steve Weatherford on the punt Ted Ginn returned for a game-changing touchdown:

"At that point in the game I would have liked to hit a better punt than that, better hang time. The guys did a great job getting down there but I would have liked to see some better hang time on that one for sure. ... If I tell the coaches I am healthy and ready to play the game. I expect myself to play at a high level and they expect me to play at a high level. That particular punt was not my best."

Quintin Demps on his fumbled kickoff:

"I just didn't secure the ball fighting for extra yards. We talk about it all the time. It's nobody's fault but mine. I have to protect the ball. ... Looking at my career, I really don't fumble. I know I have to get it together ASAP. There's no time or place for that."

Antrel Rolle was, well, typical Rolle after the loss:

"A loss is a loss. It’s gonna burn no matter what. I thought we had this one. I really thought we had this one. I saw a lot of positive attitude from my teammates. I saw a lot of passion from this team, which is something we didn’t see a lot of last week. ... We have to get better. We’re gonna get better. I have all the faith in the world in this team."
