Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin says they took Giants lightly - ProFootballTalk

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin said Thursday that the New York Giants should not have been them this last weekend. But Griffin also said that the Seahawks didn’t sufficiently respect the opponent they were facing and it came back to bite them.

“That team was not supposed to beat us. Let’s be totally honest,” Griffin said of the 17-12 loss on Sunday. “They were not supposed to win that game, and we have to live with that. That’s the taste in our mouth that no one ever wants. That’s the part that you can’t go on with. We don’t want that feeling anymore.

“We let that game get the best of us. We came in taking the team lightly, just being totally honest. In this league, you can lose to anybody if you don’t play right. I feel like we took that game lightly, and our focus point now is just refocusing – treating every team the same, like a championship game that we preach about. We’ve just got to live by it.”

“When you coach special teams in the NFL and you’re good at it, that means you can really connect with people,” Schiano said. “With the exception of a few guys in the league that are special teams players, most of the guys are something else, yet they do special teams because they have to. To get them to do it well is a skill. I think the ability to connect and his three-phase knowledge make him an excellent coach.”

Quotable

“No, but I pay enough for that high school for my son.”
