The Patriots beat the Jets last week 45--3 and had the starters in until the end. Is it O.K. to rub it in?
Jeremy Shockey: Yeah. Of course, why not? The fans pay a lot of money to see points. Bill Belichick is a hell of a coach, they've got a great team, they got beat by the Jets the first game, so why not [keep playing] at the end?
You wouldn't have a problem if you were a member of the Jets?
JS: Simple. If you want to [keep] a team from scoring points, stop them on defense. Don't expect the other team to quit.
Are the Falcons a better team than the Saints right now, today?
JS: I don't like to get into that "today" stuff. "If the playoffs started today... . " Well, the playoffs won't start today. That's the fact. The fact is, the Falcons have a better record than us and they beat us. The fact is, we get to play them again. Our team is really focused on the game we play next, not the Falcons.
