Dawkins: "I believe we are very confident. Obviously, the guys are quite upset with the loss, supposed to be. To a man that I was able to talk to after the game, this wasn't a downer for this is the season. No, it's just one game in a long season. We are very confident in what we are going to be able to do henceforth. I think that what we have to do is we have learn from these games, we really do because we are probably going to be in another game like this at some point and we are going to have to find a way to pull out these victories. And I'm talking about a dog-fight, grinding game like this was, a physical contest, and we're going to have to find a way deep down to pull out these victories. But to a man in that locker room, we believe that we are going to go do something."
Dawkins: "I'll probably go back to that statement that I made earlier; we have to get off the field. Defensively we have to get off the field. To me that was the common denominator especially against Washington and the Giants, we didn't get off the field. And we got off the field later in the game because offense got the ball but let's do it earlier. Let's not wait till that drive particularly to stand up and get off the field. We need to do that earlier and give our offense more opportunities to have the ball to get into some type of rhythm."
Dawkins: "We're going to stay positive. We are going to stay positive. It's a tough loss though, a real tough loss, but we are going to stay positive and learn from this and move forward."*
Here are some interesting facts and figures regarding the Eagles:
Late Run ...Despite running the ball just 18 times out of 54 previous plays, the Eagles ran on their last three - and came up one yard short.
Team Defense ... On the season, the Eagles are giving up just 95.8 yards per game on the ground, but the Giants controlled the tempo by gashing them for 219 yards in the running game, which drops the Eagles to seventh overall in football. They've been as high as first.
WR DeSean Jackson ... Jackson became the first Eagle to score on a pass, run and a return in the same season since 2003 (Brian Westbrook).
RB Brian Westbrook ... Westbrook failed to tally 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time in his last seven games against the Giants. He gained just 26 yards rushing and 33 yards receiving.
DT Mike Patterson ...Patterson recorded his first career interception when he tipped an Eli Manning pass to himself in the first quarter. He returned it deep into Giants territory and set up a DeSean Jackson touchdown.
The Secondary ... The Eagles managed to keep wide receiver Plaxico Burress at bay, holding him to just one catch. However, that 17-yard grab for Burress was a touchdown, and he drew a vital illegal contact penalty on cornerback Asante Samuel.
