Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Tuesday Giants headlines.
Shurmur: Giants embracing the challenge
At 1-7, the Giants could have packed it in and gone through the motions the rest of the season. Instead, they have won two straight and given themselves at least a sliver of a chance to do something special.
“I embrace it, because we’re playing this thing just the way you have to play it,” coach Pat Shurmur said on Monday. “We own a poor record in the first half, but you keep playing. I keep answering the same questions about it, you keep playing and you keep improving. You never know what happens. You can never tell what’s going to happen, and that’s why you keep playing and that’s why it’s important for our locker room not to get ill. If you lose a game and you battle, you’ve got to find a way to come back and make the corrections, and move on to the next one. You can’t let that game create an illness on your team, and I think our guys have listened to that message.
“I think the leadership in our locker room is good, and we’re just going to try to battle this thing all the way to the end because that’s what we do. That’s what we do as coaches and players, that’s why we’re in this for the competitive spirit of this with the goal of winning each game, and then we’ll let everyone that does the math add it up at the end.”
Victories bring added confidence
Nat Solder came to the Giants from the New England Patriots, so he isn’t used to what the Giants went through the first half of the season. After two victories, he can sense the different feeling.
“It’s so crazy how much of a difference, because we’ve played in so many close games where the win and loss were so close, but when you actually get that win, it’s the confidence, it’s the encouragement that you can do it again, and that you’re going to work hard that week to prepare. The more we can keep doing that, it kind of keeps us on the right track,” he said.

A lot of people and a lot of teams will have quit and gave up. Speaking as a team and as a whole, we’ve been able to stay together and continue to believe in each other and continue to fight with each other. That’s just a tough thing to do even outside of football, just in life in general. That’s something that we’ve been able to do.”
