Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to get your Tuesday started.
Kerry Wynn making things happen
Defensive end Kerry Wynn had one of the best games of his career on Sunday with 5 tackles, a pass defensed and a critical forced fumble that led to a turnover.
“I try to make sure I’m always around the ball. When you’re around the ball, good things tend to happen,” Wynn said.” Just running around and trying to make stuff happen. I’m having fun with the defense. I love it so far.”
“Comparison is a waste of time”
That was Giants offensive tackle Nate Solder when he was asked on Monday to compare rookie running back Saquon Barkley to other players he has been around.
“I think Saquon’s just unique and a very talented guy and obviously a great teammate and so to have guys like that to make up for a lot of the things we might screw up and make big plays regardless of that, despite that,” Solder said. “If we can continue to solidify what we’re doing, get better at what we’re doing and just be a more cohesive unit, I think that will really help us in the future.”
Solder: Line still has to improve
Asked about the play of veteran center John Greco in Sunday’s game, Solder spoke about the offensive line as a whole.
“We have a lot to work on and I think he [Greco] did an excellent job. I thought that his communication was very clear and he understands the offense as well as anybody, so to get that communicated across the board, but we weren’t perfect and we need to be a lot better and that’s not John, that’s all of us and we can’t make excuses because it was loud or because we did something different or whatever, we have to continue to work hard to be as efficient as possible,” Solder said.
