New York Giants headlines for Monday

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Giants-Panthers ‘things I think’: Giants give ‘rocked up’ crowd something to cheer about | Big Blue View

When Julian Love sacked Baker Mayfield to force a Carolina punt with 2:06 to play and the Giants clinging to the lead, the stadium rocked like it hasn’t for a long while.

“When that third-down sack happened, it was crazy. The crowd were crazy,” said veteran defensive tackle Justin Ellis, a first-year Giant. “And I was just like, this is New York, you know? So at the end of the game, when we knew it was over, I hugged Coach Wink and said, man, did you see that? And we talked about it. It was so amazing.”

Brian Daboll raves about ‘tough-minded’ Giants after win |

For now, though, Daboll will just enjoy his tough-minded 2-0 start — while still putting it in the proper context for the Giants’ big-picture rebuilding process.

“We’re a young team that’s still developing,” he said. “Let’s take it one day at a time.”

The play of the game was DB Julian Love sacking QB Baker Mayfield, one of the key plays in the Giants win

NY Giants takeaways vs. Panthers: Matter of trust for Daniel Jones | The Record

Yet when the time arrived to put the game on ice, with 1:40 and counting left on the clock, the Giants gave Jones an opportunity to make the win-sealing play.

With Jones, it was a matter of trust, and he rewarded his coaches’ faith in a big way. Jones’ 11-yard scramble on a third-and-5 from the Giants’ 40 moved the sticks, punctuating Sunday’s 19-16 triumph over the Carolina Panthers

Leonard Williams injury: Giants’ defensive lineman out with knee injury| Big Blue View

The New York Giants lost defensive lineman Leonard Williams in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers with a knee injury.

Saquon Barkley wants to stay with Giants for ‘rest of my career’ | New York Post

Q: Eli Manning was famous for “Once a Giant, only a Giant.” How would you feel about following in Eli’s footsteps when it comes to “Once a Giant, always a Giant?”

A: That’s kind of the saying that’s been in New York and New York Giants since 1925, “Once a Giant, only a Giant.” I know Eli put a little different word into it. For me personally, I will always love to be a Giant for the rest of my career. Not only just because this is one of the best organizations to play for and just the people in the building from top to bottom and the way they treat people — in the weight room, and the training staff, coaches, the lunchroom, everywhere.

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones explains his cap approach, It’s interesting | Blogging The Boys

What is completely missing from his thinking is how the NFL is a win-now league. Planning for the future should always take a back seat to figuring out how to get to the ultimate prize now. His statement also communicates a desire to not have to restructure contracts to manipulate the cap to build the team. Yet every year, teams go into the year with little to no cap space and still manage to manufacture it by doing just that. That includes teams like the Los Angeles Rams, who used the technique to build the team that won the Super Bowl in February.
