Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Logan Ryan credits Patrick Graham

The Giants’ defense did not play to last season’s standard during the first six games this season. Over the past three games, that has changed. Defensive captain Logan Ryan on Tuesday credited defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.

“I think Pat’s as good as any coach in the league of listening to his players and listening to his coaches and not being afraid to take advice from the players. I think on my ‘Mic’d Up’ it might come out, but we talked about changing the defense a little bit in the fourth quarter (vs. the Raiders) that led to some big plays that a coach told Pat to run or a player told Pat to run, Pat was willing to call it and willing to use that,” Ryan said. “I think he does a great job of adjusting throughout the year and listening to his players saying, ‘Although we thought this was going to be what we practiced all week, actually I think we need to run this,’ and he does a great job in implementing that.

“I don’t think we’re any simpler. I think we’re executing better. I think Pat’s done a great job of choosing things that we do well and calling the things we do well in critical situations, like third down and red area, as opposed to trying to have the perfect defense for what they might run, kind of going back to what we do well and let them beat us in that and putting guys in position to make plays. I think Pat does a great job of listening.”
