Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Logan Ryan with the positive spin

Giants’ defensive back Logan Ryan reminded everyone on Monday that 0-2 doesn’t mean the Giants’ season is over. After all, you have to remember what division the Giants are in.

“How bad is it being one game out of the division lead? Our whole division is 1-1, right? So, everyone loses, and we win, guess what? We’re division leaders next week. I don’t know how damaging it is with the playoffs, we’re one game behind in the division. So, Dallas won by a field goal, we win by a field goal at the end of this game, then we’re division leaders right now, if Dallas loses,” Ryan said. “That’s the nature of this business guys. It’s going to be close in the end and we’ve got to make improvements from week to week. When we get to November, December football, then this stuff will start adding up, but right now, we’ve got to make improvements and we’ve got to find a way to close out these games so we can stick with the division leaders.”

Giants add offensive lineman to practice squad

The Giants on Monday signed guard Cole Banwart to their practice squad. A 6-foot-4, 298-pounder, Banwart was signed by the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent in May of 2020. He was released on Sept. 9. In 2020, Banwart started each of the Hawkeyes’ eight games, seven at right guard and one at left guard. He was selected second-team All-Big Ten by league coaches and media.

Banwart takes the practice squad spot vacated when the Giants promoted center Matt Skura to the 53-man roster.
