Brandon Gibson, Wide Receiver

"(On how his first game as a Patriot went) “Obviously, we have a lot to work on. That’s all we can really focus on right now – things to get better at.” (On what he felt comfortable with in his first game) “I think it was just getting out there, having fun and playing football. That was the good part about it, but aside from all of that, we still got a lot to work on.” (On what it was like to be on the field with Tom Brady and catch Brady’s only completion) “It felt good. Regular slant, nothing too crazy. We got to get better at just executing from top to bottom.” (On if tonight’s preseason game was what one could expect) “Yeah, I mean, obviously we’ve got things to work on like I said and for us we’re going to go back to it tomorrow and figure out what we can get better at.” (On the biggest difference between a camp practice to a preseason game) “I think the tempo is sped up a little bit; everyone is trying to play fast. For us, we’ve just got to capitalize on our opportunities.” (On when he found out Brady was playing in the game) “The only thing I can do is control what I can control and prepare how I prepare.” (On if he was a little extra pumped up that Brady was on the field) “Like I said, the only thing I can prepare for is what I can prepare for. I wasn’t sure and I was going into the game thinking of what my assignment was and how I could do it.”"

James White, Running Back

"(On how it felt to get reps in a live game) “It was a great feeling. Good to get out there with my teammates, getting a chance to go out there and compete with another team. So I just wanted to go out there and make plays and make no mental errors.” (On the importance of pass-blocking) “It’s very important. Every running back has to be able to do it. If you can’t pass-protect, you’re not going to be in there. So you have to take good pride in it and keep getting better at it.” (On how comfortable he is catching the ball out of the backfield) “I’m very comfortable. I’m going to do whatever the coaches ask me to do. Whatever role I have, I’m going to go out there and do whatever I can with it.” (On how much he learned from Shane Vereen last year) “I learned a lot. [Shane Vereen is] a guy that can do a lot of things. I learned a lot from him, [Stevan] Ridley, [Brandon] Bolden, LG [LeGarrette Blount], Jonas [Gray]. I try to take parts from each and every one of their games and add it to mine.”"
