Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Daniel Jones: Offense “in a good spot”
Despite all of the obstacles faced in trying to get ready for the regular season, quarterback Daniel Jones said Thursday he feels good about the team’s progress on offense.
“We’ve done a good job as a team simulating some of those preseason games and trying to get reps with a game feel to it, practicing a lot of situations and a lot of things that would come up during games,” Jones said. “I feel like as a team, as an offense, we are in a good spot. We’ve had a good camp and made progress every day towards where we need to be. Next week, we’ll be into game prep and into week one. I feel like we’ve had a good camp and we’ve been able to simulate a lot of the game like situations that you would have gotten in the preseason.”
Saquon Barkley on a new beginning
A new season is about to start with a new head coach, and star running back Saquon Barkley is ready for the fresh start.
“It’s just a new start. It’s a new year. Everything is undetermined. We get a chance to go out there and be a new team just because it’s a new season,” Barkley said. “I think we worked really hard this offseason. I think it starts with that. Hopefully we’re going to be able to become a more disciplined team from the situations and how we’ve been coached this year. Hopefully we can go out there and take all the things that happened at practice and during camp from the hard work, from the coaching, from the situational football, understanding the game a little bit more too. Hopefully we can take all of that that we learned from camp and take it into the season and hopefully start the season right.”
