What were the New York Giants saying after Sunday’s painful 44-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys? Let’s go to the post-game podium and find out.

Joe Judge on expectations going forward ...

“Our guys are going to keep playing. That’s not even going to be a question. We’re going to play for 60 minutes. You don’t want anybody to get hurt. You don’t want your teammates to get hurt. You don’t want the other team to get hurt, either. I say it all the time, but that’s just the truth. You want to have everyone come out of the game healthy. That’s part of the philosophy we believe in. In terms of the next-man-up mentality, well, there’s a lot of good examples today in the game. We have guys stepping up, taking on different roles, being productive, making plays.

“We’ll check the status of the guys who left the game and see where they’re at but I couldn’t give you any answers in terms of next week at this point right now. We’ll see where they’re at and keep going forward, but I’d say in terms of how our team responded, it’s exactly what I expect. I expect whoever’s in the game to play. I expect the entire team to come down here ready to go. I tell the guys all the time whoever’s in the game, I expect to play, and I expect to be productive.”

QB Mike Glennon on seeing Daniel Jones get hurt ...

“It’s interesting as a backup quarterback, whenever the quarterback gets hit, you probably stare at him a little longer than most people do. You could tell he was a little woozy getting up. I knew it was 4th down and we were getting ready to go for it, so I just ran and got my helmet. I went out and got some snaps with [C] Billy [Price] because I don’t have a lot of snaps with him. You are concerned for your teammate, your friend, but we need this touchdown. So you gotta focus on the game. That is just kinda the life of a backup.”

Glennon on Kadarius Toney ...

“He’s special. I think he showed what he is capable of doing. That was fun to see. I think as a quarterback, when you get the ball in a guys hands and you throw it to him behind the line of scrimmage, and he ends up getting 12 yards – I don’t know how many he got – that was just one. There are plenty of examples. You throw him a short pass and he takes it, you just don’t see that at the NFL level very often, making guys miss like that. He’s got a unique skill set that we are all finally seeing. I’m glad he is on our team.”

Glennon on the state of the 1-4 Giants ...

“I think all we have to do is keep fighting and come back to work. This is the NFL. You don’t put your head down. You come back the next week. Starting tomorrow, we will put our best foot forward and it is just business as usual. You have to come back every day, keep fighting, keep working and stick together.”

Kenny Golladay on Toney’s ejection ...

“At the end of the day, he is still a rookie and he has a lot of learning to do. He’s going to make mistakes. The only thing I can tell him is true is not to make that mistake. He is a rookie. I am pretty sure he wishes he could have that moment back. Turn the other cheek. He will learn from it.”

Devontae Booker on whether he has seen so many top players hurt in one game ...

“Not that I can recall. It’s always just one or the other. This, today, I was just like, damn. It is next man up mentality and we all have to go out there and perform, and fight our butt off.”

James Bradberry on why the defense is struggling ...

“I can’t really put my finger on why that is. But it starts Monday. We have to come to work Monday, correct our mistakes and throughout the week, we have to execute at our level. So that when we get to Sunday, we feel more comfortable out there.”
