Quick Hits From John Fox

Posted Jan 26, 2014

Read what Head Coach John Fox had to say upon the team's arrival for Super Bowl XLVIII.

On whether it was a mission after last year's Baltimore loss

"No doubt it's been a journey. It kind of started there. We had finished the season pretty strong a year ago, very disappointing loss at home, worked very hard in the regular season to be the No. 1 seed. I would say that it was a fire in everybody's belly. The whole offseason, as we went through preseason and really as we started the season, we had mostly the core of our players returning, so a lot of them had that fire in their belly. There's no doubt this team's been through a lot. A lot of injuries — I even went away for a month. So it's been a pretty tough mindset football team and we're excited about this opportunity." 

On the Super Bowl being played in the cold
"Obviously the elements are something that's part of strategy. First of all, I spent five years with the Giants. So I understand the weather, even though the stadium's changed a little bit. I think to be a championship football team, you've got to be weather-proof. Our football team played in all different elements this year. I feel comfortable where we're at as far as it goes with elements. It's part of the game, has been tradition-wise, I think it's been a part of the league and a part of a lot of championships."

On whether he would make any changes from the first time he was the head coach in a Super Bowl
"The game itself, some of the logistics have changed some. You're always looking to tweak, like every training camp, every week of practice, you name it, we look at it. That's what we do. Not really. I think it's a fine line — you want to enjoy yourself but you've still got to focus. Really like all games, regardless of this big stage or not, you still kick off and you've still got to execute between those lines. Really kind of business as usual." 

On K Matt Prater
"He feels much better. Our docs take good care of him. They've got plenty of fluid in him, he's got the right meds. Again, it's a virus. Everybody gets it. He'll be fine come next Sunday."

On avoiding distractions
"At the end of the day, each one of these games gets bigger. Once you get into the playoff season and you get to what we call the second season, they get bigger every week. And this is the biggest of the biggest. We call it noise. You've got to be able to drown that out, still focus on your job and your preparation, and I think our guys have done an outstanding job."
