Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to follow for your Wednesday morning.
Rueben Randle: Everyone is focused and keyed in on this game
Wide receiver Rueben Randle spoke to the media recently and discussed what it will take to beat the Washington Redskins again this upcoming Sunday, as well as the addition of Hakeem Nicks back into the fold. First, Randle listed things that the Giants had done well in their last game against the Redskins, including converting third downs, that helped them get the win,
"We just executed very well that game offensively," Randle said. "We were very efficient on third down, and that was key for us, also in the red zone. In order for us to have success, we'll have to take some of those things and reiterate them into this week's game plan."
Randle also talked about the Giants' reunion with Hakeem Nicks. Randle and Nicks played together for two years, in 2012 and 2013, before Nicks was let go in free agency and Randle became the main candidate to take over his job. Randle says that the Giants will help him get up to speed as quick as possible and that it's up to Nicks to determine how much he can contribute.
"We're going to try to help him as much as possible," Randle said. "If any questions he has, as far as receivers, we're going to try to push him on pretty fast with signals and things like that. I don't think it'll be hard for him to pick up on it that quickly, so he should be able to help us this week especially.
"I think that's up to him (how much Nicks can contribute)," Randle said. "I feel like he's ready to go. Whatever he needs to do out there on the field is going to be key for us and however much he feels he wants to help us, we'll take it."
Tom Coughlin will address the media today at 11 a.m. Stay tuned to Big Blue View for coverage of today's press conference.
