New York Giants' news and notes: Quotes and other goodies

New, comments

Good morning, New York Giants' fans. Here are a few notes for you before you go off to begin your weekend.

Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell: [Full transcript]

Q: Can you use the three-safety look against a running team?
A: Yeah. I think it can be effective against a running team, passing team because of who those people are and what they bring to the table. I think it's very effective.

Osi Umenyiora: [Full transcript]

Q: What did you learn from the last time you played RG3 that's going to help you this game?
A: We already knew going in what type of talent he was, what type of quarterback he was, but he just demonstrated that further for us and he proved it in real time the type of athlete and more importantly the type of quarterback that he is. He's an outstanding quarterback, first, and so we've got our work cut out for us. He did a lot of good things against us and hopefully we'll be able to rectify that when we play them on Monday.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride: [Full transcript]

Q: Obviously David Wilson will see an increased role now, what's it like with him coming in against a Redskins defense that is not only strong against the run, but shows a lot of exotic blitz packages?
A: Same as anybody. You've got to be ready and know what you're doing and have an understanding of what your assignment are and what adjustments you have to make to handle the specific challenges or problems that the Redskins present. He's been working at it. He's certainly been around long enough to learn from the guys ahead of him that have done a great job with handling that stuff. There's no excuse for him not to be ready.

Q: Have you seen some progress from him in recent weeks?
A: I think he's working at it, we'll see. Until you see him on the game field, you don't know. I think he's making fewer mistakes and I think you see a little bit of it, an incremental growth. It's never as fast as a coach would want, but it is definitely happening. We're encouraged.
