That doesn’t matter much now. The Giants got a parade down Broadway and the Redskins finished 5-11. But as much as players usually talk about a clean slate and leaving last year in the past, those games could play a role Sunday when they meet again.
And not in a good way for the Redskins.
“I think they have a little chip on their shoulder. I don’t think it does anything positive for us,” cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. “There’s no sneaking up on them now. The know we’re for real, and they’re going to definitely bring their A-game to us.”
“They’re going to come harder,” linebacker Rob Jackson said. “Last year, I felt like they overlooked us and ended up getting beat twice.”
“Just knowing Tom Coughlin and knowing his speeches, I’m sure he’s harping on that,” Cofield said. “I’m sure he’s harping on not getting a big head after the win they had last week. He’s going go be hammering those guys; they’re going to be ready. They’re not going to be caught off-guard.”
To be sure, Coughlin, even with another ring to show for his work, hasn’t forgotten anything: “We’re not happy, he said. “We’re not happy about having lost twice.”
That’s why receiver Santana Moss said “it doesn’t mean jack.”
“We won two games last year and we didn’t do nothing after that,” he said. “We went home and watched them play in the Super Bowl.”
“No, not at all. We’re a different team than last year,” Williams said. “You can’t win any game of last year. We’re still going to come out and play the 60 minutes to get a win.”View Entire Story
