Good morning, New York Giants fans!

“A lot less questions” about the offensive line

Offensive line coach Hal Hunter was asked about the difference between this season and last season with the Giants’ revamped offensive line.

“There are less things to answer. When you bring in two veteran players on the right side, with Kevin (Zeitler) and Mike (Remmers), you have some veteran guys who are real pros. They know how to study, they know how to practice, they are taking the advanced course,” he said. “Now it’s our job to work together to put them in a position to execute on Sunday. There are a lot less questions.”

What can fans expect to see from this group?

“They will play tough, they will play sound technically, they will be dependable. Remember, you have to make sure you have dependable players who are doing the right thing at the right time. You can’t have mental errors, you can’t have pre-snap errors, you have to be doing all of the right things,” Hunter said. “You basically are playing against guys who are better athletes than you, so you need to make sure you are better technically than they are. I think that’s it — we’ll get some good, hard, solid, tough play that will be dependable, physical, and guys that are pros who you can count on week to week.”

Bummer for Beal

Defensive backs coach Everett Withers was asked Friday for his thoughts on cornerback Sam Beal, beginning a second straight season on injured reserve.

“I really feel sorry for Sam. My thought is, here’s a guy that’s really talented, a lot of athletic ability, a lot of football skills. He’s just had a string of bad luck as far as getting injured,” Withers said. “Hopefully, we will keep him going in the right direction these weeks that he’s out and get him ready to go when he is ready to go back out there and play.”

Beal is eligible to return to the Giants in Week 9.
