Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Shurmur not happy with Jackrabbit

When an angry Janoris Jenkins was critical on Sunday night of his defensive teammates you had to believe that wasn’t going to sit well with head coach Pat Shurmur. It did not.

“I don’t think that reflects him that well. We spoke today. I talked to him about how things that we say can be interpreted. He was referring to one play and not to anything in general. But I spoke to him and we discussed what should be said moving forward,” Shurmur said on Monday. I don’t like anybody making excuses for anything.

“Listen, we’re all disappointed that we lost. We can’t get frustrated. We obviously need to make sure we’re saying the right things all the time.”

In case you missed it, here is what Jackrabbit said:

“When you’ve got time [to throw] and you ain’t getting no pressure, I can’t cover nobody for 10 seconds,” Jenkins said, via “Who can cover somebody for 10 seconds? Go look at the first five seconds of the route. He’s not open. If you’re scrambling and there ain’t no pressure getting there, what do you want me to do? I can’t cover this side and that side. Come on, bro. We’ve got to play football around here.”

Dexter Lawrence explains penalty

The Giants’ rookie defensive tackle was called for an unnecessary roughness penalty that ended up costing the Giants four points on Sunday when he hit the Buffalo long snapper on a field goal.

“They said I hit the guy, I guess, too much. Then they threw the flag,” Lawrence said. “I didn’t intentionally try to hit him. I was just trying to cross his face and get to the other gap, but I’m big so I take up a lot of space. I just so happened to hit him.”
