We’re just a few short minutes away from kickoff between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys. The Monday Night Football clash between old NFC East rivals promises to be a dandy. The Giants are on a nice little streak having won their previous three contests. The Cowboys meanwhile are desperate to get their season on track with a win after starting out a disappointing 1-4.
Earlier on Monday, Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw joined The Michael Irvin Show on WQAM in Miami to preview the pivotal game. Below are a few choice exceprts from the interview (via: SRI).
Why the team’s season started off so slow and how they have been able to get it together:
“You know what, we just feel confident, and we have togetherness… The big offense, defense, special teams are feeling together right now. We feel so confident with it and we feel it’s tough to stop it at this point.”
What he thinks of Tom Coughlin and how he has changed since he got to New York:
“When I first came in everybody said that he was hard-nosed and hard on the players and he wasn’t a player’s coach. My first year I was lucky enough to win the Championship that year. After that I figure he became a player’s coach. He does a great job with us. He gets us prepared to the fullest before the weekend and very game…”
How much the team thinks about having a chance to end Dallas’ season on Monday Night Football:
“We know that it is going to be a big game. They always come to play us especially down there, they always come to play and it is a Monday night game. We just know that we have to win this game to get a good start on it, in our division, and we just look forward to it. I don’t know about knocking them out. They are always a team that once they get a spark, a little momentum, they can always come back. So it is still early to speak on that. I just know that we have to come to play. They have a great set of guys; they just got to get it together. Hopefully they can’t get it together this week.”
