Good morning, New York Giants fans!

The Giants won another preseason game on Thursday night. Daniel Jones was impressive again. Eli Manning, too. Ho-hum. What else is new.

Shurmur says

Here are a couple of thoughts from coach Pat Shurmur after Thursday’s game.

On how Daniel Jones responded to the big hit he took from Carl Lawson of the Cincinnati Bengals:

“You take hits, you know?” Shurmur said. “He came to the sidelines and I said, ‘That was a good one.’ He said, ‘Well, I’m sure I’ll get hit harder than that at times.’ He was fine. I think he did a good job. He got us into the end zone. He made some really good throws. He has a good feel for a couple of the deep balls he threw, when the defender was in close proximity, giving the receiver a chance at the ball. Those are two of the results on a couple of his deep balls. But he sees things well. He moved forward in his progress of being ready to play. Each week he does things. He’s into it. I adjust on the run quite a bit and he can handle it, which is fun when you’re calling plays and trying to make adjustments to attack what you see on defense. He can handle it.”

On sloppy play. The Giants had five accepted penalties, a few that were declined, and two fumbles:

“I thought the guys competed hard like they did the first two weeks,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “It was probably just a little bit sloppier than I think we would all have liked to see. But the one good thing about this game is we played everybody, and we got a chance to evaluate everybody doing what they do. That will help us as we move forward here picking our 53 (man roster).”
