Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Nate Ebner and Joe Judge helped the New England Patriots win three Super Bowl titles. In New York, they haven’t yet been able to transform the Giants into winners. Judge has been insistent that progress is being made despite the team’s 1-6 record. What does Ebner, the veteran special teams player, see?
“At the end of the day, it comes down to winning football games. We can say what we want about the work we put in, but ultimately, we’re just trying to get the outcome that we strive for,” Ebner said.
“Obviously, it’s been disheartening with some of the results, but I can tell you that the work is to the maximum every week and it continues to be so. Guys really want to get the outcomes that we work so hard for. I can speak to that, the guys in this locker room, there’s no quit on this team. Guys are fighting hard for each other. Like I said, we’re going to work each day to get better. Right now, our focus this week and really tomorrow is to get better. That’s [what] we can control.”
PICK NO. 4: OT ANDREW THOMAS, NEW YORK GIANTS
2020 overall grade: 58.3
The bad news for Andrew Thomas is that he earned a 56.0 PFF grade on Thursday night against the Eagles, which is basically back around his rookie baseline after a brief bright spot against Washington the week before. The good news is that Matt Peart didn’t get a chance to see much playing time and outplay him the way he did that previous week.
Thomas continues to struggle through a rookie year in which he is dealing with new pass sets and things he hasn’t done before. The NFL is a tough environment to learn on the job, and we’re just seeing the growing pains of a position that is already difficult to transition to this level with the added burden of reworking some of his technique. Thomas has now allowed 37 total pressures — the most in the NFL.
