Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Being a captain “means everything” to Barkley
Saquon Barkley, in only his second season, is a Giants team captain. He understands ghe significance.
“It means everything,” Barkley said today. “It’s awesome to be a captain for my team and for them to vote for me, especially being a young player in my second year. But at the end of the day, captain or not, I wasn’t going to change. Just because I’ve got a ‘C’ on my chest, I’m not going to act out of myself. I’m just going to continue to try to keep the same mindset and continue to try to do the little things right, and encourage and push my teammates, and push myself, and try to be the best teammate I can be for my team.
“Being a captain is someone you can hold accountable, that they know is going to hold up to the standard.”
Shula: Alex Tanney “brings a lot to our team”
Why did the Giants use a roster spot on veteran backup quarterback Alex Tanney? Here is offensive coordinator Mike Shula on that topic:
“He brings a lot to our team everywhere - on the field, in the room, in the quarterback room, on the offense and on game day. I think he’s one of those guys that a lot of teams in this league are looking for to have as a veteran, backup quarterback. He has a very fast mind. He’ll ask questions in the room, as we’re talking about the room, that brings up good points that might lead to other questions. He has a great relationship with the other quarterbacks and with the rest of the offense.”
