Good morning, New York Giants fans!
If the Giants need an emergency quarterback, like the Denver Broncos did on Sunday with all four of their quarterbacks not eligible to play, who would it be? Coach Joe Judge was vague about that on monday.
“There’s always a list of guys that want to be in your ear reminding you they played quarterback in high school,” Judge said. “I remind them I did the same thing, and I’m also not playing on Sunday.”
Keeping a QB remote
After what happened to Denver, is that something the Giants would consider to ensure they had at least one eligible on game days?
“Obviously, what happened with the Broncos this week, I think every team in the league had similar conversations. We did as well Saturday night at the hotel,” Judge said. “Considering in the future, not only just the quarterback position, but several key positions throughout the team, is it worth keeping those guys isolated and having them Zoom in for the meetings? That’s definitely something we’re discussing right now. That is something we’re considering.”
Confidence in Colt
Giants players on Monday expressed confidence in backup quarterback Colt McCoy, who will likely start on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks in place of the injured Daniel Jones.
“I have a lot of confidence in Colt,” said wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who caught three of McCoy’s passes for 28 yards against the Bengals. “He’s a veteran guy. He’s been in games, he’s played this game for a long time. Like I said, my confidence is through the roof with him.”
“He’s very experienced, very savvy,” said safety Jabrill Peppers, who faces McCoy each day in practice. “He’s a guy who can make all the throws. I definitely have the utmost confidence.
“He diagnoses coverages really well, very fast. He gets through his progressions really well. He has some tricks that he likes to throw at us, whether it’s his no-look passes or looking off the safety, throwing it back side. He definitely does a lot of things to help us prepare for what we’re going to see on Sundays.”
Quote of the year
“One thing being around Nate for a long time is he’s kind of like the girl who has eight kids and can tell you she’s pregnant before she’s taken a test. He kind of knows what’s going on with his body. Walking off at halftime, he was able to kind of relay to me what the injury was kind of similar to and what he was thinking about it. Sure enough, that’s exactly what was confirmed by the doctors today.”
Joe Judge, talking about Nate Ebner. Judge added that Ebner should “rebound pretty fast” from Sunday’s knee injury.
