“No, I’m not really worried about the rookie wall at all. I really don’t believe in it, to be honest. I don’t even know what it is, to be honest, I don’t know what to believe in. Maybe I did hit a rookie wall and I didn’t know, but if it has anything to do with how your body’s feeling or getting out of bed, I haven’t felt that yet.” – RB Saquon Barkley on hitting the “rookie wall”. 

“I remember Landon, he messed his shoulder up on one play and he went into the locker room and I saw him come back out and he was telling me he was like, I don’t know, I don’t know. I was like, ‘bro, we need you, we just need you, the game’s almost over, we need to go and make one more stop’”. – WR Odell Beckham, Jr. on what he told Landon Collins during last week’s game. 

“I’ve loved his play these last few weeks and I think he’s played solid all season, but I think his level of play has been all-pro these last couple of weeks. Back to the level he was before he had his injury. I think something we all learned being around players, I dealt with it one of the last places I worked at, with guys that get injured sometimes it takes them a little time for major injuries for DBs to be able to play as fast as their minds working. I think we can all see that. Some of the breakups he had in that game were pretty special and he has always worked the process, he’s always practiced well.” – DC James Bettcher on CB Janoris Jenkins
