Here you go… • Hatcher is doubtful, and Keith Davis has leg problem. Keith practiced today and is probable. • We got a new guy named Stanley (TE), Marcus Coleman, and Jamaica is on practice squad. • Vicks struggles against Giants D? Didn’t study Atlanta at all. I was just looking at Giants. Giants pressured him pretty well, but I don’t think they will play us the same way. • Tiki is tremendous player. Probably the best player in the division, and probably a top 5 in the league. He can run and catch. If Tiki is retiring after this year, they’d be losing their best player, and the league will be losing one of its top players. • Coleman’s role will be as a FS, but he can be a CB if we need him there. Outstanding ST player when he was younger, can still do it. Gives us flexibility. Don’t know what he’ll do this week, we’ll see if we can afford to dress him. • Hatcher doubtful, good chance he’ll not play. Worked different guys in different spots in order to keep D-line fresh. Aydele practice outside (DE?). • Tiki broke 10-12 plays straight through to the safety last week. If he does that this week, we’ll get beat. Tiki is patient, accelerates, good strength, catches, breaks tackles, and no longer has fumble problems. Doesn’t make a lot of 80-90 runs, but a lot of 10+ yard runs. Tiki runs like JJ to an extent. If JJ can be what Tiki is, the Cowboys will be in good shape. Tiki is underrated complete player that stays out there. Talked to JJ about looking at Tiki, because there’s a lot to learn from him (ie Tiki’s patience and sets up blockers). • They don’t use Tiki & Jacobs like we use JJ & Barber. Jacobs is a big guy. Jacobs looks like Christian Akoyo (Chiefs). Keep Jacobs running parallel. • Mike (Strahan?) has lost a lot of weight in order to improve his quickness. I think it was a good move. • Has tried to tell RBs throughout the years that they have a bulls eye on their back every week. If they don’t adhere to weight training, nutricion, and running they’re not going to last very long. JJ particularly has a good ideal what RBs need to do. • Witten is blocking better. Want him to get more involved in passing game. Why hasn’t he been involved more? Well, he has dropped a few in case you haven’t noticed. • Can you compare Witten to Shockey? No, different types of players. • Giants receivers? Tall. Armani & Burress are tall and Carter(?) is fast. They have a good system and more developed qb. They’re putting up points. Dangerous offensive team. • How important is 3rd down O important for us? It’s always important. If a team is averaging 30+ Points a game you know 7 points aint’ going to beat them. • Reporter: Do you know anyone on the Giants staff? BP:Yeah, I've worked with 2 of their staff members. Reporter: Does that mean they can anticipate some of your moves/calls? BP: Well, it's one of those situations where "they know, that I know, that they know." • Active/Inactive FB change TE’s roles during games? No. • You have to be conscious of protection every game. (Got into a brief, minor, exchange with reporter). Drew can’t worry about the rush. If he’s worried about the rush, he’s not going to do very well. If he’s worried about the rush, we’re in trouble. We’re going to get tested this week; this is going to be a test this week. • Field position can affect what you do. • Releasing Suisham means you’re more confident in Vandy? Yes, likes what Vandy has done. Asked Vandy what can he handle, but didn’t want to talk to him to much or he may think that he’s important (chuckle). Best kick I’ve ever seen in my life was Vandy against Denver. It was as good as Venetari’s SB(?) kicks. I’ve seen Vandy make some good kicks in tough places. • No way weekly roster can stay the same every week. Opponents change and roster has to change to be prepared against that team. • I told the team it has to be good to go every week… and that goes for writers too.
