How did New York Giants players react after Sunday’s 19-14 loss to the Chicago Bears, a seventh straight defeat that dropped them to 2-9 on the season? Let’s go inside the visiting locker room and find out.
Saquon Barkley on being 2-9 ...
“It’s upsetting. I mean, when you look at our team, you see how much talent we have and the great coaches that we have, too. You wouldn’t expect us to be 2-9 like where we are now. We have so much talent, but things just, I don’t know why, for some reason, things just don’t go our way in games. But hey, those are growing pains. That’s why I keep telling the guys, just live and learn from it. When we do turn this thing around, these are going to be the moments that we appreciate because when we do turn this thing around, which I do believe is going to be very soon, we’re going to laugh at moments like these.”
Daniel Jones and Alec Ogletree were each asked about the losing streak.
“It’s tough. No one likes to lose. Everyone in this locker room, everyone that’s a part of the organization is trying to do all we can to correct it. We have to keep doing that and look at what we’re doing and get better because right now, it’s not good enough.”
“Losing is not fun for anybody. We haven’t won in seven, eight weeks or something like that. It’s frustrating for sure to keep losing. Not win games. We got five more opportunities to try and get a win. We got to look forward to that.”
Struggling placekicker Aldrick Rosas on how he’s feeling ...
“I would say frustrated. Obviously, we’re not in the position we want to be in at this point of the season. It’s just frustrating.”
Sterling Shepard on his return from a second concussion ...
“I just kinda want to move on and put that in the past. I’m happy to be back out here with my boys. That’s all I want to focus on going forward. I don’t even want to think about that anymore.”
