Quotebook

“He’s a guy that can really disrupt the game in a way that is not good for the offense, but we’ve got to block him. That’s the case every week…he’s obviously a very good player, he’s got a good first step, he can bull rush you and go, then work your edge or just work your edge. I think what he does a good job of is just keeping his feet moving and then as the play develops, being in a position to either sack the quarterback or find the running backs. He’s a really good player.” – Pat Shurmur on Bears’ OLB Khalil Mack

“I have a lot of respect for him, I actually coached Eli in the Pro Bowl a few years ago. I got to know him as a person and a player a little bit there and see who he is, and I have a ton of respect for him. For the type of player that he is, the adversity he’s been through, I think that he has just so many strengths, just knowing the game, knowing where to go with the football. I appreciate that. This is not an easy position to play as a quarterback position, and he’s had a lot of success, he’s done well, and I think that we have a big challenge ahead of us this week with him back there as the quarterback.” – Bears head coach Matt Nagy on Eli Manning

“Just to continue to fight, continue to get better. You never know what can happen. I know we’re not satisfied about our record right now, but still got five games to get better and continue to work. For myself, same thing, same motto there – continue to get better, learn and improve every single game. Those mistakes you make, make sure they are not mistakes that I made early in the season. Make sure they are dead and continue to get better on every area of my game, catching the ball, running the ball, pass blocking and growing into a better leader.” – Saquon Barkley on what he wants to get out of the last five weeks of the season.
