Good morning, New York Giants fans!

What Giants’ Andrew Thomas expects in reunion with college teammate Isaiah Wilson: ‘Hopefully he’s got his stuff together’

“I was surprised,” Thomas said. “Sad things for him. But he’s had some time off, and hopefully he’s got his stuff together. I’m excited for him to get another chance. Great kid. Definitely talented. Excited to see what he does. Looking forward to working with him.”

Giants’ Saquon Barkley: ‘I Don’t Want to Make Any Excuses’ for Slow Start to Season

“I don’t want to make any excuses. I’m not going to do that throughout this whole season. I’m never going to make any excuses. The expectation that people have for me, it’s not even close to the expectation I have for myself — and it never will be as long as I play football or whatever I do after football. That is just my mindset.”

29. Daniel Jones

Like so many of the guys in this bottom tier, he’s not exactly working in a great system, as the Giants are among the worst teams in the game. But he’s not really doing heavy lifting, either.

Ten spots below Jalen Hurts? Seriously? At least he’s above Taylor Heinicke

Giants kicker Graham Gano wants a shot at NFL field goal record - New York Daily News

“I hope I get that chance, 100%,” Gano said with a smile of one day maybe outkicking Tucker. “The situation’s gotta be right. This stadium we kick in [at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey] is maybe not the most favorable for long, long kicks. I guess we’ll see [in the Superdome] if the AC is blowing the right way. That’s below sea level down there.”

Not that Gano wasn’t impressed by Tucker’s 66-yarder that bounced off the crossbar and in. He just wasn’t surprised.

“I wasn’t surprised because he and I, in pre-games before we’ve just backed it up, backed it up, backed it up, just to see who can hit the furthest” Gano said with a smile. “So I knew he could hit far ones. We played in Baltimore years back and we both went probably close to 70. And it was just back and forth, back and forth.”
