Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Behind the scenes, though, players are taking ownership of more than just splashy t-shirt slogans.
“I’m excited about what we’re building here,” Giants inside linebacker Nate Stupar told NJ Advance Media.
Stupar, an eight-year NFL veteran who is entering his second season with the Giants after being claimed off waivers six days before the 2018 season opener, says the difference between the vibe around Quest Diagnostics Training Center this spring and summer is night and day from last season.
“I’ve noticed that we talk so much more football,” Stupar explained. “We constantly talk about ‘how do we defend this route? What’s our call if they run that?’ We just constantly talk ball. That’s what our motto is: ‘All ball’ When you have people just talking ball and they have passion for it, it’s contagious.”
One perfect preseason series Thursday against the Jets hardly means that Pat Shurmur is currently prepared to make the franchise-quaking change from Manning to Jones.
That will happen whenever Jones shows he has climbed the tallest mountain in the NFL landscape:
When it becomes obvious that he gives Shurmur and the Giants their best chance to win, meaning a better chance to win than Manning gives them.
It’s a fight he appears to be losing.
The Packers waived Davis, who spent last year with the Giants, on Saturday.
Justin Tuck is awesome.
