Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Jabrill Peppers: “Lot of football left to be played”

The Giants are 0-4. Many in the fan base have written off the season and begun the Daniel Jones vs. Trevor Lawrence debate. Giants players, though, haven’t given up on anything.

“We don’t really pay attention to the outside noise. We know there is a lot of football left to be played. We know the leader in our division is 1-2-1, so everything is still pretty much up in the air,” Peppers told me on Friday. “We’re coming in here, getting better each and every day fundamentally, staying in good condition. It’s just about going out there, playing complementary football on Sundays and putting everything together. It doesn’t matter how good things look at practice. It matters how special teams plays and gets the field position, if offense puts up the points and if the defense is just making stops.

“We’re definitely doing our due diligence, and there’s a lot of football left to be played. We know that and we’re ready. We’re ready for the long haul.”

Devonta Freeman no longer a new guy

As of Saturday, Devonta Freeman has been a Giant for 18 days.

“I don’t see him as a new guy at all. He’s definitely deep in our building right now, he’s deep in our program,” head coach Joe Judge said Friday. “We’ve got a lot of packages for him put together. As far as getting caught up on our playbook, I think he accomplished that a couple weeks ago.”

Signed to help the running game without Saquon Barkley, Freeman agreed that he is “a lot more comfortable” with the offense now.

“I try to focus on when my number is called. Whenever I get chance, an opportunity to get in there and do my job, do my part,” Freeman said. “Whatever my assignment is, try to be perfect on all my plays and stuff.”
