Prince Amukamara did not make any threats towards A.J. Green. He did not say he would answer the receiver’s comments with his pads, as Antrel Rolle did. Nor did he recommend that Green duck if he sees him, as Rolle did.

No, Prince is much more subtle than that.

What he did was point out that while Green is a “flawless” receiver, for some reason there aren’t many defenses in the league who think enough of him to give their cornerbacks help in coverage.

“I don't think I've seen any, like, bracket (coverage) on him and I'm very surprised,” Amukamara said. “I guess teams are confident they can play him one-on-one. We're a confident defense, we think we can play him one-on-one.”

Amukamara also pointed out that while the Giants do give up some big plays, they also have a lot of takeaways.

"I mean he's a very confident receiver and I expect to him say that,” Amukamara said. “I expect him to have confidence that he's going to make plays, just as our defense does. We have confidence we're going to make plays against their offense."

The idea on Sunday, Amukamara said, is to make sure that those words from Green don’t come true on Sunday. To make Green eat his words.

“That's always the goal,” Amukamara said with a pleasant smile.
