Giants amused by B.J. Raji saying their line isn't physical
The New York Giants were amused that Green Bay Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji said they were not very physical along the offensive line.
The showdown is Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field and we’ll see who earns the upper hand in this battle.
“He’s a beast out there,” Giants right guard Chris Snee said, mocking Raji, according to the New York Daily News. “I was upset about it all night, tossing and turning. B.J. was on my mind.
“All kidding aside, no one cares what B.J. had to say. Sometimes when you’re young and you make it to the Pro Bowl and have your own commercial, you feel the need to talk. We’ll do our talking on Sunday.”
What exactly did Raji, a native of Queens say?
“Not saying they’re soft,” he said Thursday, “but it’s not the toughest group I have been against.”
Earlier in the week, Raji had talked about remaining quiet heading into the game.
“But he’s giving the quotes,” Snee said. “I don’t understand the double talk there, but whatever you have to do to get yourself psyched up.
“Personally, it’s the divisional round, so that’s what I’m excited about.”
