  • Quotes

    • Tiki: I think we believe it. I don't think there's a doubt in our minds. But as always in this game you have to prove it, not only to people who are watching, but also to yourself.

    • Tiki: Rushing the ball is all about ball control. If you run the ball, you control the clock. If you control the clock, you usually control the game.

    • Tiki: Amani missed a block, ... I think he was setting himself up.

    • Tiki: I think it'll tell a lot about our team and our offense in particular and how good we really are. They've been playing great defense and it's a monumental test for us to go on the road and do what we've done at home.

    • Tiki: I think it'll tell a lot about our team and our offense in particular and how good we really are. They've been playing great defense and it's a monumental test for us to go on the road and do what we've done at home.

    • Tiki: I think it'll tell a lot about our team and our offense in particular and how good we really are. They've been playing great defense and it's a monumental test for us to go on the road and do what we've done at home.

    • Tiki: That's why, as a guy who has been around long enough to understand that, I feel so strongly about wanting to win a championship here. Because if you do, your name lasts forever.

    • Tiki: I remember early in my career we couldn't lose division games, ... Now, with Philadelphia taking such prominence in the division the last few years, it's been a struggle.

    • Tiki: Because Eli's playing so great. That's it.

    • Tiki: He won't have to think about it or hear from his agent what the organization is thinking. He can stay focused on football - not that Jeremy hasn't been focused.

    • Tiki: Our quarterback is playing so great right now. You can see how he's improving exponentially each week.

    • Tiki: We knew we needed a big drive there and we got it.

    • Tiki: It's so nice to have so many weapons. There is no pressure and that's how it should be. If one part of the offense is faltering, someone is there to pick it up.

    • Tiki: I think at halftime we realized we were probably putting a little bit too much on Eli and we went back to running the ball and doing basic things.

    • Tiki: The numbers aren't good, but they lie to you. Numbers will lie, especially when we see how he works and see him in practice every day. The numbers are not always indicative, especially for a young guy. If he had been here and was established, it would be a concern. But this is really his first year as our leader and starter.

    • Tiki: Hopefully, it won't ever get to that point because we have so much talent. But I am confident that he can do it under pressure.

    • Tiki: I don't think they take it personally and if they do that's their problem. I don't think it had anything to do with their players. I know it had nothing to do with them. They have no reason to be upset.

    • Tiki: It is a short week and we have a long trip against a tough opponent. It's going to be a sense of urgency for us to get prepared for this one.

    • Tiki He did great, ... He had a phenomenal game.

    • Tiki: I'm sure he is going to hear boos, but I'm going to hear boos. That is the perils of playing on the road. He's a big boy, he can handle it.

    • Tiki: Do I think guys are going to come out and try to hurt him? That's not the way the NFL works. You play hard and you do the best you can regardless of the opponent.

    • Tiki: We have great team chemistry right now with everyone doing their part, but we're still not holding up our end completely and it's going to take some time.

    • Tiki: I think execution-wise we weren't perfect, we still have a lot of room for improvement. That being said, we're ecstatic that we're 2-0.

    • Tiki: Eli was a little bit more consistent. He made some great decisions out there and he was a good leader in the huddle.

    • Tiki: I think we did some good things.

    • Tiki: Knowing Stray, he'll play. He was walking around, but he wasn't walking all right. But he's always ready to play, even when he's hurting, he's OK.

    • Tiki: They are very good and I think they have an emotional edge in their own minds about what the season is going to bring for them and mean for them. We have to find a way to combat that.

    • Tiki: Eli was a bit more consistent out there; he made some great decisions and was a good leader in the huddle.

    • Tiki: It was all phases of the game.

    • Tiki: It was his first game as a full-time starter for us. We have a lot of talent around him, a lot of veteran players. He doesn't need to be Joe Montana right now. He has time to develop into that. As long as we play well around him, I think he'll continue to develop and be the great quarterback we expect him to be.

    • Tiki: At this point, it's just a football game. Obviously, there are a lot of things surrounding it, but it's still just a game. I think everyone in this locker room and in their locker room probably feels the same way.

    • Tiki: [It's clear that the Saints are getting an emotional boost from representing the victims of Hurricane Katrina.] They have an emotional edge in their own minds about what the season is going to bring for them and mean for them, ... We have to find a way to combat that.

    • Tiki: They are very good. And I think they have an emotional edge in their own minds about what this season is going to bring for them and mean for them. We have to find a way to combat that.

    • Tiki: You can't even blame them for blowing us out, because we were so bad then. But this is a completely different team, a different feel, a different coach staff.

    • Tiki: He doesn't need to be Joe Montana right now. He has time to develop into that. As long as we play well around him, I think he'll continue to develop and be the great quarterback we expect him to be.

    • Tiki: This organization has been very loyal to me and I've been loyal to the organization, ... And it will continue to be that way.

    • Tiki: It's really not about me, it's about the team. Last year, we didn't have a lot of good things happen to us. That's not the formula every year. If I get 200 touches this season and we win, that's fine with me.

    • Tiki: It's really not about me, it's about the team. Last year, we didn't have a lot of good things happen to us. That's not the formula every year. If I get 200 touches this season and we win, that's fine with me.

    • Tiki: Finally, we have guys who really care about playing special teams and not worried about starting or anything. Thinking back to when Amani [Toomer] and I had to return punts, we've come a long way.

    • Tiki: O'Brien added. ''And it still came down to a last-second stop on the 1-inch line. That just shows you the talent that they have and the capabilities they have.

    • Tiki: Sports has a way of transcending what's appropriate, and that's OK. It's accepted. I'm sure the Saints will use [the Katrina tragedy] to motivate them all season long, and there's nothing wrong with that.

    • Tiki: A lot of that had to do with his belief that this organization represents this city. We played with the kind of pride New Yorkers have.

    • Tiki: Mom just probably roots for whoever is winning.

    • Tiki: I enjoy playing against my brother.
