Giants players reflect on their 4-12 season

The New York Giants concluded their 4-12 season on Sunday with a 34-17 loss to the Eagles. Members of the team had a lot to reflect on from 2019 and what is coming going forward.

Golden Tate on the positives from a losing season ...

“Obviously, record-wise and production-wise, it’s not where we want to be. Just looking at the personnel, all the Young guys that have stepped in and worked hard really encourages me. We’re all excited to get back in here next year after some rest and recovery and build something. I think we have a lot of amazing talent.”

Tate on the changes coming for the Giants ...

“This is always a tough night for me because some of these guys I’m never going to see again. Some of these guys are never going to play football again. The dynamic of the team is going to change. But also, the high point about it, the good thing about football is: no matter how bad statistically, or how bad you think you played this year, you get a new start. It’s almost like whatever happened last year does not matter. That’s encouraging. So, top-to-bottom, expecting guys to come back bigger, better, stronger, faster, smarter, and try to build something great.”

Daniel Jones on what he learned from the season ...

“I’m still very young and I’m still learning, but to win in this league, you need to be able to produce every game. You need to be able to produce every quarter, really every time you get the ball, you need to expect to produce. As a team, we made plays throughout the year at times and did some good things, but we didn’t do enough of it at key points of the game, and I think that goes for me as well.”

Jones on being a part of a young team ...

“We certainly can’t use being young or being inexperienced as an excuse. When you look at the league, there are plenty of young teams who are winning, who are finding ways to win. We need to do that.”

Jones on learning from Eli Manning this season ...

“Eli was huge for my growth, my development. Obviously, he’s a legendary player, and there’s a reason, because he understands the game. He’s done it for a long time, he’s seen a lot. I’m lucky to be able to learn from him and just spend time with him.”

Darius Slayton on his first year ...

“I definitely expected to come in; I knew I could be a good player for this franchise. I wanted to come in and make plays for this team, so for me, this is what I expected to do.”

Saquon Barkley on going 4-12 ...

“It sucks. You don’t want to be 4-12, but no matter if we were 4-12 or 8-8, at the end of the day, we’re not going to the playoffs. That’s your whole (goal) of a season. In the offseason, that’s what you train for, to compete for a championship. It sucks but you have to let this stuff burn and fuel your fire, learn from it and hopefully it helps build us and helps build character for us to compete next year.”

Barkley on setting a Giants record for back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons ...

“It doesn’t mean anything. We’re 5-11 and 4-12, that’s the only thing that matters.”

Barkley on Daniel Jones ...

“He is going to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league, that’s a fact, I know that for sure. Not because of his talent, he is very talented. Put his talent aside, his worth ethic. The way he comes to work, he is one of the first people in and one of the last people to leave. You can see how passionate he is and he actually cares about this sport. He’s rare, he’s very rare. He is going to be very special.”

Barkley on summing up the season ...

“Disappointing.”
