What follows are a handful of noteworthy early-week quotes from Packers players a few days after Green Bay’s 45-17 rout of the Giants in Week 16.
CB Tramon Williams on the Packers remaining in playoff contention: “We feel great. Obviously, we needed to get this one or it was over. For us to put together a performance like that, guys are really confident knowing we can still make this run. Our goal is still ahead of us. Everyone’s goal is to win the Super Bowl, so everyone’s feeling good right now.” (Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette)
QB Aaron Rodgers on backup QB Matt Flynn: "I was teasing Matt that I had to get my job back, he played so well last week." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
LB Desmond Bishop on the Packers playing a complete game against the Giants: “We finally put together four quarters. I don’t want to sound cocky or anything, but if we can put together four quarters, we can do that to pretty much everybody. That’s just the kind of talent and the kind of will we have on this team. Put four together like that, we’re dangerous.” (Source: Packers.com)
FS Nick Collins on shutting down Giants QB Eli Manning: “You want to make any team one-dimensional. That means you’re controlling the game.” (Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette)
OLG Daryn Colledge on Rodgers' career day: "I think the numbers speak for themselves. It's hard to critique a guy like that." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
