Here are Patriots runningback Danny Woodhead’s comments following the Patriots beating the Jets Monday night.
On beating the Jets:
“We won the game. Anytime you win the game, that’s the most important thing. I’m not too worried about who it’s against, but it was a big win, and it was a nice game.”
On the shuffle pass where he picked up 50-yards:
“It was just something that obviously we ended up falling into, and it ended up working. Obviously we’re happy when something like that happens, and it was a play that my linemen made a couple of great blocks, receiver made a great block, and all I had to do really was run the ball.
On the atmosphere of tonight’s game:
“It was a big time atmosphere. It was a division game, both teams 9-2, and we needed to win the game. We were able to come out and get the victory and that’s the most important thing.”
On getting caught up in the ‘hype’:
“You know the ‘hype’, that’s not really a big deal for this team. We’re not worried about that. We’re worried about going to work every single day, getting ready and preparing, so on a night like this we can come out and do our best.”
On their ability to create favorable match-ups:
“You know, there’s a lot of good players on this team. The coaches do a great job of putting us in positions to succeed, and I think you saw that a little bit tonight with the coaches putting us in good positions.”
On the efficiency of Tom Brady:
“I mean he’s Tom Brady, everyone knows that. He’s been able to do some pretty good things throughout his career, so I don’t know if stuff like that really surprises everyone.”
On Playing for New England after being cut by the Jets, and if he looked over and reflected back on his time there:
“Not really. You know, this is where I am, I’m a New England Patriot. Was I over there at one time? Yeah, but that’s not something that I dwell on – or ever want to dwell on. Because that’s not who I am now, I’m a New England Patriot and that’s the most important thing, I’m going to do my best for this team.”
