Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Pat Shurmur on where he sees progress
The Giants coach has said he sees progress despite the team’s losing streak. Monday, he was asked to explain where.
“I’ve answered this question. I see the young players improving. I see us competing in games, we’re just falling a little bit short. Most of the games, unfortunately, are within a score for most of the game, or we’re ahead and somehow, we just can’t find a way quite at the end,” Shurmur said. “But I do think that there’s improvement behind the scenes. It seems like each week we add another young player to the mix of guys. Then they go out and do some good things, and then they do some things that remind you that they’re young. That’s part of it. But there’s no excuses for any of it. We need to do what we need to do to win the game.”
Daniel Jones on “fine line” between winning and losing
In most NFL games a handful of plays determines who wins or loses. Giants’ rookie quarterback Daniel Jones was asked Monday about the difficulty of winning.
“You hear all the time people talking about the margin for error and how close these games are with everyone being so evenly matched talent wise. It’s about who can make a couple more plays, I think that’s something you hear about,” Jones said. “The older guys will tell you how fine the line is between winning and losing. It’s been tough and we’re all looking for ways to improve, ways we can figure it out and get back on track. I think that’s part of this game.”
Dalvin Tomlinson on the upswing
Defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson, in his third season, appears to be playing the best football of his career. Known as a run defender, he has 2.5 sacks and 6 quarterback hits this season after getting only one of each over his first two seasons.
“Just working with (defensive line coach) Gary Emanuel, working on my flaws and getting better every week. Just keep coming in each week working on my craft every day in practice,” Tomlinson said. “The more you play, you just learn a little bit more about the game. There is an understanding of how the flow of the game goes. That’s probably it.”
