Last quote by John K. Mara

I was obviously disappointed with his behavior in Philadelphia. I spoke to him about that and he heard me. And unfortunately he got hurt. But he's maturing. I think we had all hoped that maturity would have come a little faster than it has been. But I've spoken to him. I saw him in the hospital last week. He's in a good place, I think, and I think he'll come back stronger than ever. … I don't think it will have any effect because I think he's going to make a full recovery.feedback

It did get tangled. It got confusing and cumbersome, and we had to come up with something more reasonable.feedback

He's going to get paid a lot of money at the appropriate time. You can argue that the appropriate time is now, but you can argue both sides of that, I guess. It'll happen when it happens. He deserves to get paid -- we're going to pay him, it's just a question of when we enter into the contract, and I don't have a timetable on it right now. I just don't think there's any need to rush into it. He's going to end up getting paid at some point.feedback

He's a very smart young man and a very talented player. One of the things I've said about him before is that he does so many wonderful things off the field that nobody knows about. He's somebody that we want here for a long time.feedback

I would say it is unlike anything. Lawrence Taylor was that caliber [of star]. Obviously, he accomplished more in his career because Odell is still so young, but it was a different world back then -- it was without social media. But Odell certainly is a star in every sense of the word, and that presents certain challenges. But you know, I'll live with those challenges every day of the week to have a player like him.feedback

I think he's just got to keep doing what he's doing, keep playing. He's going to get a long-term contract. We're not asking him to prove anything at this point. Just keep playing as hard as he's been playing and continuing your growth off the field as a person. I'm confident he's going to do both.feedback

All my years being in the league, I never received more emotional mail from people than I did about that issue. If any of your players ever do that, we are never coming to another Giants game. It wasn't one or two letters. It was a lot. It's an emotional, emotional issue for a lot of people, moreso than any other issue I've run into.feedback

There may be some opposition but I don't think it really changes what's going on right now. It just prevents you from announcing it. I think the theory behind that is if that coach that's in the Super Bowl is the offensive coordinator in a news conference and he's asked about the quarterback situation with the new club, he can simply say, Hey, I'm not allowed to talk about that now. Nothing's been announced.' To me, it makes sense as the way to do it.feedback

That was discussed. That's a risk. But you have a couple timeouts. You shouldn't let a drive like that happen …. You shouldn't let the team hold the ball. It was something the players, when we met with them in Indianapolis, supported. The opposition to that is it might create more ties. My response to that is: So what? I'd rather have that used as a iebreaker at the end of the year than something like point differential.feedback

I don't know if the coaches or GMs expressed any opposition to that because I've been in these [owners'] meetings all day. I think that's gonna pass but I don't know for sure. … It was something the players, when we met with them in Indianapolis [at the NFL scouting combine], supported. The opposition to that is it might create more ties. My response to that is: So what? I'd rather have that used as a tiebreaker at the end of the year than something like point differential.feedback

You very rarely have a Ray Rice video.feedback

I am certainly disturbed by what we read. He has admitted to us that he abused his wife in the past. I think what is a little unclear is the extent of that, but what we have read about is obviously disturbing.feedback

I have an open mind.feedback

Based on the facts that were placed in front of us, we're comfortable with our decision to re-sign Josh and the league's suspension. The easiest thing for us to do would be to get a new kicker. We're trying to be fair to Josh. The easiest thing would be to say, Terminate him, get rid of him.' We're trying to do the right thing. It's not always easy.feedback

Josh knows what's expected of him. He's been going to counseling. He's been a good citizen since he's been here. He's going to conduct himself in a professional manner. We're an organization that has always tried to do the right thing. It's not always easy, but we're going to stick with our decision.feedback

Aug 24 2016

A lot of time, people try to make it black and white. There are two sides to everything. Very rarely you have a Ray Rice video.feedback

It's going to be a football decision. It's going to be decided on the field.feedback
