Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Giants star wants to embrace “Mamba Mentality.”
Ingram is one of the many NFL running backs who were coached by Burns at Alabama.
“Man, he’s just getting a coach who loves his players, who was very knowledgeable about the game of football, who understands the running back position, understands running backs’ eyes and knows how to teach running backs how to be an elite running back,” Ingram said. “He’s a great coach, great father figure and an asset to any organization because of the person he is.”
... anyone watching the NFL playoffs this year knows that the 49ers are not alone in winning with a strong running game and a powerful defensive line. The fact is, a majority of this year’s playoff teams had a lot of “old school” in them, and they ran their way to victory more often than not.
Yes, the Chiefs are built the more modern way, with a fast-break, air-centered offensive attack. But if these NFL playoffs proved anything, it’s that even now there is more than one way to win a football game. Gettleman may be “old school.” Maybe he is even rooted in the things that worked best in the past.
But that doesn’t mean he’s wrong.
"You can't let him get outside," Taylor said today while making the rounds at Radio Row at the Super Bowl Media Center. "I don't understand spy guy (a player whose sole responsibility is keeping tabs on Mahomes). Every team has a spy guy on Mahomes, but he's always out of position. He's always out of position. You have to set him in the middle and you have to shadow him. You have to be patient and wait for him."
“He’s won two Super Bowls,” the linebacker said on Radio Row before Super Bowl 2020. “He may not be a first-ballot. But is he a Hall of Famer? Of course. Played too many games.
“He’s done too many good things. He’s been the best of the Giants for too many years. He will get into the Hall of Fame. And if he goes in the first ballot? I’d be surprised, but he will get there if he doesn’t go in the first (time).”
Merritt was with the Giants from 2004-2017.
“The one thing I told these guys, and we did an exercise at the Giants, is you have to be able to breathe. You have to be able to find a quiet place, your safe place, where you can close your eyes for a couple of seconds and just take deep breaths. I said, ‘Because it’s a natural tendency to be so excited about everything that’s going on.’ That’s one of the things that I gave the guys is breathe. But I’m just so happy and thrilled for these guys. It’s beautiful.”
“At least it’s a franchise that has won multiple Super Bowls,” Sanders told The Post as he promoted Rocket Mortgage on Super Bowl 2020 Radio Row.
“They know how to put together a winner. At this point, I wouldn’t be that concerned about that. I would lean toward them at least understanding there is a method in being able to do it. You have to get the right guy in there coach-wise.”
