“Much has been made about the number of days until (the game), so it’s a constant reminder, plus historically the home team has never played, so that’s a nice thing to be aware of. But we have a long way to go to be in that situation. But lofty goals? Yeah. Every team in the league… There are 32 teams that the Super Bowl championship is their goal right now. But we have to make sure we take care of all the nuts and bolts in order to get to a position where you’re even able to compete for something like that. Yes, it is a reminder. It’s all positive, provided all the work that has to go into it prevails.” -coach Tom Coughlin

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: GIANTS VS. COLTS

eli colts“I’m disappointed tonight, we didn’t make any plays.  Might have made one or two, but certainly nowhere near enough.  You know, we had many opportunities and then didn’t come away with anything; I thought we had two interceptions there on two touchdowns of theirs, and we were down in scoring territory a bunch of times and didn’t come away with touchdowns, so that continues to be an area of concern for us, for us all.  Too many penalties tonight, starting with mine, which was foolish.  You know, I’m taking full responsibility for that, I was wrong.  The situation that occurred, I was out on the field too many times, they warned me about that, but in that situation, you’re told by the officials to go ahead and come down if you need to take a timeout when the clock is running out, but that didn’t happen. I guess when they threw the flag as far as me leaving the bench area, so I take responsibility for that. I was wrong, wasn’t a very smart move, but the frustration in terms of how we played was there and I am disappointed in tonight’s game.” -coach Tom Coughlin

“We had three opportunities with that first group of getting down there inside the five-yard line or near it and not get any touchdowns. So obviously that’s something where we’ve got to get better and make sure that we’re having good drives and getting the ball that close to the end zone to finish up with seven points instead of settling for three or in one case get nothing when we went for it on fourth down and didn’t convert.” -QB Eli Manning

cox colts“It felt good to just get the first preseason game under my belt. I just want to keep getting better and keep going uphill… This is the second preseason game. We just have to go watch the film, critique ourselves from there and see what we have to do to get better next week.” -WR Hakeem Nicks

“We definitely need to get a lot better. There are a couple of areas we need to improve on. Individually, it’s good with the first unit, you can see some guys out there making plays. With the second unit, where there are a lot of guys with jobs on the line, they’re making plays, too, and that’s encouraging. It’s the preseason. We’ve got some work to do to get the defense as a whole where we want it to be.” -DE Mathias Kiwanuka

“It’s kind of like being a freshman all over again. You’re in a new place, new surroundings, new locker room, you kind of have to learn what your role is within the team. It’s been fun, though, just competing and getting better. I have a great group of guys in front of me so it definitely helped me out.” -T Justin Pugh

“Oh yeah, I knew it was a pick. I saw it leave his hands and then as soon as I looked up, the lights just took the ball away. I couldn’t see anymore and that’s what kind of made me fall. As soon as I fell back, it hit my hands and it kind of shocked me. So it just popped up and I turned around and Reggie was catching the ball. One of those plays you can’t get back.” -CB Aaron Ross

“I think I left some plays out there, especially on the deep ball. I thought the safety was right there. I thought I was going to run into the safety, so I didn’t really go for it. I let up a little bit and other than that I was pressed most of the time. I don’t know. It was a great battle. I was going up against Darrius Heyward-Bey most of the time and he’s fast and he gave me good reps and I know I gave him some good reps too.” -CB Prince Amukamara

“We were running well. I ran the ball well. We didn’t get a 4th and 1. I kind of wish I had that play back, but we held onto the ball and protected it (well). The passion was good so it was great work today. I’m looking forward to next game so I can continue improving. ” -RB Andre Brown

murphy colts“Every different week you’re going to see different looks from different teams, there’s going to be some new things that they throw at us that we didn’t quite prepare for and that’s the byproduct of the preseason, that’s why you’ve got four of them to kind of get ready for.” -DE Justin Tuck

“I felt good, just a step slow on everything but I think that’s, again, another reason why I said it was important for me to come out and play these games. Clearly tonight was proof as to why I should. The most important thing was that I felt good, the hop felt good and, like I said, I just need to get my timing down, the speed of the game.” -G Chris Snee

“I mean, obviously you want to come out here and play good football. But it’s no time to panic. You heard him [Coughlin] talk, this is an extension of a practice, this is where you get live action. You don’t have your full offense in, you’re working out different things, different techniques, trying different things but, at the same time, even though you’re doing that, you want to execute and do it to the best of your abilities. When you go out and play and have these games and you don’t play your best, number one you see that there is room for improvement, it’s not time to panic but obviously you have a sense of urgency to make the corrections and do those things.” -T Dave Diehl

Daily Blitz (8/17): John Mara, Tom Coughlin among the five most influential people in NJ sports

JOHN MARA, TOM COUGHLIN AMONG THE FIVE MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN NJ SPORTS

John Mara, Tom CoughlinCo-owner John Mara and coach Tom Coughlin became the third and fourth Giants to be listed on Star-Ledger columnist Steve Politi’s “Juice List“. Coming in at numbers two and four, respectively, they join quarterback Eli Manning (No. 14) and general manager Jerry Reese (No. 19) as two of the top 25 most influential people in New Jersey sports.

Mara, the team’s president and CEO, moved up two spots from his No. 4 ranking a year ago and remains the only Giant to ever be ranked No. 1, earning the top spot in 2011.

“The Giants co-owner was initially skeptical about the Super Bowl in the new stadium his team shares with the Jets,” Politi wrote. “Now, the week will only be a complete success if it becomes a home game for his team – and, despite skepticism around the league, Mara is confident the talent is there to make that happen.”

» 2012, No. 4.  “For the second time in five years, the Giants’ co-owner — and the man who topped this list last year — gets to hand out a set of championship rings this fall. When will other teams in the area (hello, Jets) realize the Giants do things the right way?”

» 2011, No. 1. “The Giants CEO not only helped clear the impasse between the players and owners in the lockout, he treated his team’s fans and employees with respect during the ugly process.”

» 2010, No. 2. “Without the new patriarch of one of the NFL’s founding families, it is doubtful the league would have considered New Jersey as the site for the 2014 Super Bowl. Mara, the son of the late Giants owner, had the influence to make a cold-weather venue a reality. But …”

» 2009, No. 2. “The son of the late Giants owner Wellington Mara is proving himself to be a strong leader for the powerhouse franchise — and no team, despite the New York in its name, is more Jersey.”

coughlinLike Mara, Coughlin has been on each Juice List since its creation in 2009. Despite falling one spot from his No. 3 ranking a year ago, he remains in the top five.

“In typical fashion, the Giants coach didn’t miss a single practice session when he flew out to see Bill Parcells enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame,” Politi wrote. “With two championships, Coughlin already might have enough on his resume to join him there someday, but a third would end any doubt.”

» 2012, No. 3. “This might be the best part about the coming NFL season: Never again will we have to worry about the Giants head coach being on the hot seat, not after a second Super Bowl title put him on our Mount Rushmore of football coaches.”

» 2011, No. 13. “The Giants showed faith in him despite another playoff-free season, extending his contract for a year. Now, with the Eagles loading up in free agency and his own team hampered by departures, he’ll have an even bigger challenge to win the NFC East this year.”

» 2010, No. 14. “… will the Giants head coach, facing an important season three years removed from Super Bowl glory, keep his team on top in this market after the defensive collapse last winter?”

» 2009, No. 16. “The Super Bowl-winning coach is already on the Mount Rushmore of Giants coaches — and another one could put him on equal footing with the most adored coach of all, Bill Parcells.”

 

QUOTABLES

“I always get nervous before a game, but once you start playing, it all goes away. Probably right before the game, I’ll be a little nervous, but when I step on the field and get that first hit in, I’m good to go.” -Justin Pugh

BEST DEFENSE IN THE NFC EAST?

NFL Network analysts Shaun O’Hara and Willie McGinest were asked on Tuesday which NFC East team, in their opinion, has the best defense.

Here’s what they had to say:

jppShaun O’Hara, New York: “When I look at these other defenses from last year and I look at Washington, when Orakpo went down, we saw their lack of depth. Same thing with the Cowboys, they don’t have a lot of depth. So, when I look at the Giants’ defensive roster, you’ve got guys. You want to take JPP off the field, guess what — Mathias Kiwanuka is coming out because they moved him from linebacker to defensive end. If Justin Tuck is not in there, Damontre Moore, the third-round pick, he’s been unblockable in the preseason. They signed Cullen Jenkins from Philadelphia, I think that was a great pick. He actually moved out to defensive end in that preseason game. And they’ve got Shaun Rogers, Linval Joseph is coming up on a contract year and they also drafted Jonathan Hankins. I think it all starts up front with this defense. Last year they did not stop the run, they gave up 129 yards per game, that’s going to be the point of emphasis for them. I think in the secondary, they did a great job taking the football away. They created 35 takeaways and, I think in that division, the NFC East, that’s what you have to do. You have to make those big plays. Stevie Brown did a great job intercepting the football and taking it the other way for pick-sixes. I like the Giants, I think they’re the most physical defense.

Willie McGinest, Dallas: “I know Dallas wasn’t one of the best defenses, but the whole division didn’t play good defense last year. I look at the coaches, the systems, the players, put it all together and Rob Marinelli is one of those guys that’s taken defenses and taken to them to the next level. He’s teaching guys how to read schemes, protections, how to play… and i look at the players, if they’re all healthy and they’re all on the field, he’s going to put them in the position to make plays and to be very good. I think they understand that and they’re very compfortable in that system.

HERZLICH VS. CONNOR RANKED THE NO. 9 POSITION BATTLE IN THE NFC

NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal compiled a list of the NFC’s top position battles on Wednesday, ranking the Giants middle linebacker competition between March Herzlich and Dan Connor at No.9.

“There isn’t any reason to believe Herzlich won’t win this job,” said Rosenthal. “The Giants seem very confident in him.”

Herzlich has been taking the majority of the first team snaps in camp while Connor, a first-year Giant who has previously played for the Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys, has been running with the twos.

“There’s no jobs given out,” Connor said. “The players who’ve been around for a while and are older, they’re looking to replace them, and the younger guys are hungry. It’s always competition. The coaches create an environment where you know that, if I work hard and I produce, they’ll play me. No one is ever comfortable with a job. This linebacker position in particular, it’s an open job, anyone can go for it. It’s just who will excel and make plays.”

All four NFC East teams were listed, with the Eagles’ quarterback competition between Michael Vick and Nick Foles listed at No. 1. The Redskins’ tight end battle comes in at No. 10 while the Cowboys strong-side linebacker competition is listed at No. 18.

I’m having a blast this offseason, well, not offseason anymore, this training camp.” -Aaron Ross

WILL THE GIANTS WIN THE NFC EAST?

NFL.com’s Darren Sharper and Heath Evans were asked a question that many Giants fans have on their mind: does the team have enough offensive firepower to win the NFC East?

Sharper: “You have two prominent wide receivers when you talk about Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. Guys that are proven play-makers so, a lot of times, that’s pretty much all you need. You add a tight end in Brandon Meyers, who played well for Oakland last year, that gives you three options. Like Tom Coughlin said, if they get that running game going, then they have a fourth option so yeah, I definitely think they have enough.” 

Evans: “I’m going to say this — if RG3 is healthy for 16 games, nobody has enough to beat that boy and what they’ve got going there in D.C. But, you know, Darren hit the nail on the head. You’ve got options but you need consistent options. The ceiling for these players that he mentioned — they’re high and Victor (Cruz) has been extremely consistent. Nicks, and then you go with Ramses Barden, who had some “wow” plays, but then where’d he go a week later? You go to Rueben Randle, the young guy, they need to get him to come along. So you need weapons and they’ve got them, but they just need consistency out of those boys.” (WATCH)

“Each day we make a little bit more progress.  I thought our hitting was a little better in the 9-on-7 today than it was the other day.  I told the players that, so I think a blind man can tell if a 9-on-7 is right.  We’re getting there, not quite there, but we’re getting there.” -Tom Coughlin

QUOTABLES

When Bill Parcells took over as head coach of the New York Football Giants in 1983, they were not very good. In 1986, they won Super Bowl XXI. In 1990, they won Super Bowl XXV. When he was named head coach of the New England Patriots in 1993, they were not very good. In 1996, they made it to Super Bowl XXXI. When he became head coach of the New York Jets in 1997, they really weren’t very good. They stunk, they were 1-15. In 1998, the Jets won their first division title since the AFL days with Joe Namath in 1969 and they advanced to the AFC championship game. In 2003, when he returned to the sidelines to coach the Dallas Cowboys, they weren’t that good. He twice led them to the playoffs, becoming the only coach to ever take four NFL franchises to the postseason. Now that’s pretty good. Oh yeah, when he became president of the Miami Dolphins, they weren’t any good either and they soon thereafter made the playoffs. So, you see, you get the picture don’t you, you get it. From under the boardwalk in New Jersey to 183 coaching wins in the NFL, to Canton, Ohio, Bill Parcells, yeah he was tough on his players, but in so many ways he embraced them.” -Chris Berman, ESPN

Inside the Locker Room: Reg. Season Finale

Posted by Giants.com on December 26, 2012 – 2:00 pm

QB Eli Manning
On the playoff implications this weekend
“I think you prepare like any other game, we’ve gotta go and handle our business. We gotta go and win a football game, and it’s the only thing we can control and that’s the only possibility of us making the playoffs starts, obviously starts with us handling our business and going winning a game. If it’s for anything, just going out there and playing good football.”
Safety Antrel Rolle
On the Giants’ recent run of form…
“From the performance that we’ve given the past two weeks, there’s nothing to smile about or even grin about at that point. You know, it’s disappointing  We’re a better team, and we know we’re a better team but you know what we’ve shown the last two weeks that we’re not such a good team, we’ve got to build on that, we’ve got to grow from that and understand that there’s not much we can do about it at this point but we can get better from it.”WR Victor Cruz
On ending the regular season with a rivalry game… 
“It’s a must win game for us, if it’s going to be our last game, we want to end it on a right note…their team is fighting, fighting hard…we’ve just got to go out there and match their intensity.”

Vote for Player of the Game

Posted by Dan Salomone on August 18, 2012 – 9:48 pm

There were plenty of key contributors in Saturday night’s preseason victory over the Jets. Here’s a look at them and vote on who you think was the player of the game.

1) CB Jayron Hosley – The third-round draft pick intercepted Mark Sanchez, taking it 77 yards the other way for a touchdown. Hosley also added two punt returns, with a long of 10 yards.

2) DE Jason Pierre-Paul – Got his first and second sacks of the preseason on Sanchez for losses of 6 and 4 yards.

3) WR Victor Cruz – Continuing his success against the Jets (both in preseason and regular), Cruz went to work early and racked up all 5 catches for 51 yards in the first quarter.

4) K Lawrence Tynes – With only one offensive touchdown in the game, Tynes supplied four field goals from distances of 35, 30, 40, and 45.

5) LB Keith Rivers – Rivers tied for a team-high 5 tackles (3 solo), including taking down RB Shonn Greene behind the line of scrimmage in the second quarter for a loss of 4 yards.
