Post-Game Quotes: DC Bill Davis

On whether it's frustrating when the defense is playing well, giving up 15 points and the team loses:

COACH DAVIS: "Fifteen points is a good number in the NFL. We just have to continue to work and get better to where we can win the game."

On giving up 21 or less points the last four games and whether he likes that consistency from the unit:

COACH DAVIS: "The number one word you used is consistency, and that is what we are looking for. Are we consistent? We have to be consistent on first downs. We have to get into third downs and then on third downs it wasn't as good as it needed to be. But, the red zone picked up. Consistency in every phase and situation in the game is what we are looking for. We have to continue to grow and get better, until we can pull out the wins."

On whether there were adjustments that caused the defense to get more pressure on the Giants QB Eli Manning in the second half:

COACH DAVIS: "No, there was not a lot of changes. We actually pressured more in the first half than we did in the second half. We made some adjustments to the protections they were using, that were a little different than what they did in the first game. So, we adjusted to their protections, we got some pressures, and they adjusted back."

On how he keeps the unit from being frustrated when they have given up 15 points this week and 17 points last week and still lost:

COACH DAVIS: "The wins will come. All we focus on is what we do out there defensively. We ask, did we play well enough to win? We did not play good enough to win today. That's all we can focus on. We are a team; we will continue to be a team. It's all three phases coming together to win a game. None of the three phases were good enough to win today."
