Good morning New York Giants fans! Here is your Saturday morning notebook. To see the full transcripts check out the transcripts page.

Hakeem Nicks [Full transcript] :

Q: Is this the best you've felt this season?
A: No. I feel like at this point in the season nobody feels great. The best you feel is before you start training camp. I feel pretty good now; I'm getting all the way back to full, 100 percent. That's my goal every day, just to be better than I was the day before.

Q: Do you feel better than you did last week against the 49ers?

A: Yeah, I feel a lot better than then. I was still a little cautious in that game about it. I really just had one practice then got in the game. I had three weeks off. I wasn't really expecting too much out of that game. I just wanted to go out there and get back. This week I had a full week of practice so I expect it to be better. Next week will be better. I just want to keep getting better.

Tom Coughlin [Full transcript] :

Q: Against this quarterback, where does discipline rank on the necessities for your team?
A: Way, way up there. You've got to be in the right position. First of all, you've got to recognize and then you've got to maintain your gap integrity because if you fall prey or victim to thinking there's a better way or an easier way, he'll see it and then bring the ball outside on you. You can talk about the option all you want, but the 76-yard run was just pulling the ball down on a pass.

Q: What's the message this week about a Redskins team that beat you twice but you're coming off such a big win?
A: That's the message right there. We've been down this road before. We're talking about a very professional level of a preparation of understanding that this is a divisional game. We're 0-2 in the division. If our expectations are to get anything done, we need to get going in the division. It's a conference game; it's a divisional game. It's a big game because it's in the division and we haven't played very well against the Redskins last year, quite frankly.
