Jalen Ramsey - Saturday, August 25, 2018

(On if it was good to be back out there) “Yeah. It felt really good. At the end of the day, it’s still the preseason. We have to prepare ourselves for week one.”

(On if he feels good about the defense) “That is kind of what is expected of us: to play well, but we have some things to clean up before the real thing starts.” 

(On his reaction to the Marqise Lee play and injury) “It sucks. We are going to have to play for him. You can’t be mad at 27 (Damontae Kazee). You have to be mad at the NFL; not mad at them but that is how the rule is. People are scared to tackle normal because I guess they don’t want to do helmet-to-helmet and get flagged. That was not even flagged and [you could] potentially get thrown out of the game. Game-changing stuff could happen. You don’t really want to blame anyone, but you feel bad for him. I don’t know, man, that’s just tough to see it happen to one of my teammates, period. But you can’t really blame 27.” 

(On if he feels good going into the opener with how the defense has been the last two weeks) “I wasn’t here last week. (I watched) some parts of it. Like I said, that is what is expected of us. We have to fix some things and get ready for the real deal.” 

(On how fatherhood is going) “It’s unexplainable. I never really knew how much my Dad and Mom loved me until I had her. Now I kind of understand. They always told me how much they loved me, but it’s a different type of love.” 

(On if he thinks about his daughter on the field) “Oh, for sure. She is always on my mind. That is why I am trying to hurry this up to go talk to her. I got me a good little interception celebration ready for baby girl.” 

(On if he has any regrets for the GQ Magazine comments) “I don’t live my life with regrets. Things happen, and I said what I said. God knows I love everything about the game of football. I love the competitiveness, I love the trash talking and I love the challenges. I love literally everything about the game. I have no regrets. I wasn’t in control of them releasing the timing of that, but I will follow up with the best because it’s all on me.” 

(On if his opinion changed on Matt Ryan tonight) “The defense did a great job out there tonight and we have some things to correct, but we did a great job.”
