Giants players react after falling to 1-5

What were the New York Giants saying Sunday after losing 38-11 to the Los Angeles Rams? Let’s step behind the post-game podium and find out.

Daniel Jones on his recovery from last week’s concussion...

“Yeah, obviously the play on the goal line and got the wind knocked out of me and stumbled there. I had no memory loss and when I got back to the locker room, passed all the tests. Just went through the week through the concussion tests and took it a day at a time with (what) the trainers were asking me to do. I think I was still able to get those reps and practice and I don’t think it had an effect.”

Jones on playing without Andrew Thomas and Kadarius Toney...

“Andrew is a great player. He’s played well for us this year. He’s an important piece, but I thought those guys – (Tackle) Matt (Peart), (Tackle) Nate (Solder), (Offensive Lineman) Korey (Cunnigham), all those guys stepped in and played well. Got to do a good job making decisions and getting the ball out.

“[Toney] was a big part of it going in. He’s been playing at a high level. Made an impact there early on. We missed him, but we’ve got good players and those guys stepped up and got to execute better.”

Joe Judge on Jones’ performance...

“Daniel’s improved a lot as a player. Obviously, we don’t want to have turnovers in a game. Daniel is a guy that we’re going to have success with. He’s a tough dude, he’s a good competitor, he’s a leader on this team, does everything we ask him to do. Specifically you’re talking about the interceptions and these are things we have to talk (about) and address in terms of how we’re executing our plays. That’s not always tied into just one person. This is a guy that’s made a tremendous amount of improvement and obviously he’s going to help us have success going forward in the future.”

Judge on keeping the team motivated at 1-5...

“There’s a lot of ball left to be played. I don’t Quit Things, these players don’t quit things. We’re not going to do that, so anyone who’s got that mentality of woe is me, what did you think was going to happen? Did you just think you were going out there, roll the ball out and walk over every opponent? It’s the National Football League, teams are good. You’ve got to play better than them in those 60 minutes every Sunday to have success. We don’t have a room full of guys who are waiting for someone to show up and save us. We’re in that submarine right now. You spring a leak, someone’s got to plug that thing for you. No one’s coming. It won’t get there in time to help you if you don’t fix it yourselves. That’s how we come back on Wednesday and we prepare.”

Judge on Tom Coughlin and the Super Bowl XLVI team...

“Obviously, there’s a lot of respect for the accomplishments of that team, they earned the right to have that, going out there and hearing Coach (Tom) Coughlin speak to the crowd. Obviously, that’s someone who’s earned all the time he wants. Did a lot of things for this club and this city. We have a tremendous amount of respect for the history of this organization and the men who came before us. Obviously, there’s a responsibility to uphold the tradition of how we want to play (and) we didn’t do that well enough today.”

Sterling Shepard on what he told his teammates during the game...

“Just that we have to play with heart. I think that’s the main thing; when you look up at the scoreboard, you can tend to get down. People’s heads start to drop, but one thing that we talk about a lot through the week and what we’ve talked about since we’ve gotten together as a team is fight; no matter what the situation is, we have to fight. That was my message to the guys.”
