Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill on Friday addressed his comments from earlier in the week when he said the Dallas Cowboys "always choke, so we'll go down there and make them choke." He stood up to the cameras and the reporters for a few minutes and answered every question, saying that he apologized to head coach Doug Pederson "because obviously I put him in a tough spot."
"We're confident in our guys, confident in ourselves and this team, and our ability going into this game. We're ready," Grugier-Hill said. "It's a big rivalry. We all know that. It's going to be a great game."
Grugier-Hill, feeling the spirit of the rivalry, repeatedly expressed his confidence in the team. Other than that, there wasn't a whole lot to say.
"It's just a big week," he said. "We've got a lot going on going into this weekend. We've got a big game here. Our confidence level is high as a team. We know what we can do and we're ready to play."
Asked if he was concerned at all about being a "target" on Sunday at AT&T Stadium, Grugier-Hill shrugged it off.
"I'm not too worried about," he said.
