Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Former Cowboys QB Jon Kitna discusses what Giants' offense might look like under Jason Garrett

There is a ton of useful, interesting information in this post. Here is a snippet about offensive coordinator Jason Garrett:

"(Jason) wants the offense to have an aggressive mindset," Kitna told BBK. "He's going to call plays aggressively. Obviously, that's all going to be predicated on how well he gets his quarterback up to speed and all that stuff, and dealing with the younger guys. It's different, but he played well last year, so I'm sure he's excited about that. But he's an aggressive playcaller. He's going to call plays that are meant to get the football down the field and trust the quarterback that if we don't get what we're looking for, to move on and get it to the back coming out of the backfield and then we'll call the next play. That's what he wants to do. He wants to call the game aggressively. He wants to be on attack mode all the time. He really tries to instill that in his offensive unit."

Giants, Jets games with fans not ruled out by NJ Gov. Phil Murphy

You might — just might — be able to attend a Giants’ game this fall.

“I think it’s too early to tell,” Murphy said. “I think it’s a great aspiration. And outdoors is better than indoors with this virus. There’s no question about that. A ball game outside? Potentially.”

Penn State's James Franklin says Giants get 'culture driver' in rookie Cam Brown; Saquon Barkley will have a 'huge' year

Nittany Lions coach lauds Giants’ sixth-round pick.

"Well, he's a culture driver," Franklin said. "We talk about that all the time. He's a guy that is going to have meetings with the coaches then be able to take that information down into the locker room. He plays aggressive, he plays violent, he throws his body around. Yeah, I think he's what coaches are looking for. Everything I know about Coach Judge and everything I know about the organization that he came from, he's going to align with that. He understands this is about production, it's about doing your job. It's not about all the hype, it's not about the things you say in the media, it's not about any of those things. It's about doing your job and being a high-production, low-maintenance guy."
