Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Players react to QB switch
Veteran left tackle Nate Solder says he hasn’t noticed any change in the attitude of the locker room:
“I think that we have a lot to worry about,” Solder said. “We have a great team with Tampa coming up, and we need to be prepared for that. We have to focus on the things that we need to do to win that game.”
What does Solder think of Jones?
“Oh man, I love Daniel,” Solder said. “I think he’s doing an excellent job. He’s taking one day at a time. He’s working hard. Like I said, it takes 11 guys. It’s not just one.”
“The players are a big part of the success of this business, but a lot of times bad stuff falls on our shoulders, as well,” Bethea said. “It’s just part of the business. You hate to see it. In Indy, you never thought that Peyton was going to not be a Colt. You thought he was going to be there for his whole career. But things happen.
“It’s a business and there are things you have to work through. But Daniel is very capable, he’s very capable of making all the throws and all the plays. This is just the decision that the coaches made… It’s one of those things like ‘put him in there and see if we get a spark’ and go from there.”
Center Jon Halapio admitted “mixed emotions” on Wednesday.
“We’re here supporting both guys in this time,” Halapio said. “We’re here supporting Jones going into the starting lineup, and we’re here to support Eli as well.”
