Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Daniel Jones discusses concerns

The rookie quarterback has shown a tendency to hold the ball too long in the pocket, then to not protect it as well as he could with the pass rush closing in. He addressed those concerns on Monday.

On holding the ball too long ...

“I think that’s important to always have that in mind, and I think I need to do a better job in a lot of cases of just sensing when that timer is going off or when maybe I do have an extra half-second. I think kind of just developing that, continuing to learn in those situations, and I’ll be using that to help me progress and help me in the next situation. So, yeah, I think I need to do a better job with it.”

On limiting the fumbles ...

“I think just making sure I have two hands on the ball in the pocket is a big thing, just not letting myself get lazy with that at all, just making sure I’m consistent with that. And when I’m running, keeping the ball secured, I think all those little things that you’ve heard for a long time that are just kind of fundamental to anyone holding the ball I think are things that I need to do better.”

Golden Tate: “I still believe”

The Giants have lost three straight, and there was a palpable sense of frustration in the locker room on Sunday evening. Wide receiver Golden Tate said Monday the Giants aren’t ready to throw in the towel on 2019.

“I didn’t come here to lose, I came here to help get things turned around and help us win a bunch of games. I still believe that we can do that, we just need to be a little bit better. Looking back at that film, I don’t think it was as bad as I thought it was. I think there are some things we definitely… one guy does one thing a little bit better, that could be a big play. Looking at it, I don’t think we’re light years away from being a really, really, good team. I just think we’re a few plays. Just do a few things a little bit better, and I think we’re in a better situation late in the game.”

Cardinals discovered Giants QB Daniel Jones’ kryptonite, Patrick Peterson says -

Peterson says he Cardinals discovered a weakness in Jones’ game that they could exploit, long before Sunday’s 27-21 Cardinals victory at MetLife Stadium.

“We saw that he has some trouble with that two-shell [coverage] against New England,” Peterson told NFL Network’s Kim Jones after the game. “And we tried to not resemble the same game plan, but give him some of those same looks because he had trouble with it 10 days ago.”

The Cardinals harassed Jones with the combination of two-deep shell coverage and stunts from the front seven that produced eight sacks, an interception and three fumbles, with two recovered by the Cardinals.

“Just close the windows, the middle of the field, and give him some confusing looks,” Peterson said.
