When it comes to the Cowboys, I always play great against them.

I feel like after my incident, it really made me realize football is not here forever. I'm all the more anxious to come out here and let my teammates know, 'Look, hey, this is the same JPP. Missing fingers aren't going to stop me from playing some ball.'

My dad never quit no matter what. He couldn't see, but he never let that stop him. Most people, when something like that happens, they just think their life is over. But that's not true. My dad can still do things like a normal person. He still cooks; he still watches my sister and my brother's baby when my mom's not home.

To play this game, you've got to have heart, and a lot of guys don't have it. I can sit here and say we all do, but we all don't.

You just gotta do it, man. You can't count on the guy making the tackle in front of you.

When I'm on the field, family-wise, family matters, whatever off-the-field issues, I'm not worried about.

I try not to put myself in horrible situations anymore.

In this game called football, we don't know who's going to the playoffs.

What I bring to the table to help my team is that I'm never going to quit.

I don't like Philly. I don't care at all about Philly.

Nobody can defeat you when you all are working together.

I just want to go out there and play to my full potential, and play a healthy season, know what I'm saying?

I'm just very fortunate that I'm alive. I look every day and see my hand and say, 'Thank you, Lord.'

Football is a game of business. You don't work for free.

I feel like I'm just going to go full speed and tackle. If that means there is friendly fire on my guy, then that's what I gotta do. I try not to do that because I know I'll lay a big hit on them, but if that's what I gotta do, that's what I'll do just to make sure that tackle gets made.

Anytime you have an injury, you're going to be iffy about stuff.

That's the whole part of playing football and having training camp. Coming in and recognizing how players play.

If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. That's why I play. If I made it in New York, you can make it anywhere.

Denard Robinson was my quarterback in high school. Never had his shoes tied. I don't see how you can play like that.

Being injured, nobody wants to be injured.

The bottom line is I'm a football player, and I played three years of college football, and I produced all three years. I also got better every year, and I just felt like it was time to move on.

I just want to whup the man in front of me, play after play.

The only thing that can stop me from being me is me.

I know when it's time to joke and when it's time to be serious. As far as football goes, I'm serious.

When a role model tells you it's going to be OK, it's going to be OK.

I'd love to be a Giant for the rest of my career.

You've just got to have it, man. Like, in this game of football, you can tell when you look at film who's more passionate about the game.

A good season for me is going to the playoffs and making a run for the Super Bowl and having a good record.

I was a basketball player. And my mother even wanted me to quit because I hurt my leg. But I didn't know anything about football - from Pee-Wee on up, my friends would play, and I would never go with them.

You never can stop learning.

You can't predict injuries. That's one thing you can't do.

I can't play 'Madden' without an index finger!

The Giants have a great organization, great fan base.

I think nobody can block me. Nobody can stop me.

If I'm tired, I'm coming out. I won't do that to my teammates and stay on the field when I know I'm not going to be able to do it.

I'm missing an index finger.

Each year is a year for you to get better, so that's what I'm trying to do.

At the end of the day, media is going to say whatever they're going to say.

Once I get on a roll, it's hard to stop me.

I had a lot of different jobs.

If I'm not capable of doing it, I won't do it. But you're going to get 120 percent of me every time I'm on the field.

Growing up, as a kid, my father was always there.

Your job is never secure as a football player - or coach.

The less thinking you do, the better you play.

The coaches can't be out there to tackle for us; we have to do that, like I say, starting with myself.

New York is the biggest city, biggest fan base, and they don't sugarcoat nothing around here.

Whatever I can do to help me be a better player, I'll do it.

I can do better, and if that's consistently training even harder, then I'm going to do that.

My mom and dad taught me a lot. They kept me out of trouble and told me to go a better route. They taught me how to be a man, basically.
