I'm going to go out and be the best quarterback I can be and get the most out of my potential.
As soon as you make mistakes, or you have an off year, even if it's not your fault as a quarterback... I've always said the quarterback and the head coach always get too much blame when you lose and too much credit when you win.
I'm worried about doing my best, playing to my potential, helping out my teammates, and trying to win games for the Giants.
