THEY SAID IT:
Alec Ogeltree On This Year’s Team: “We definitely have come together a lot closer this year. Like I said, it was new for everybody last year. Things were happening all over the place. It’s one of those things— the more you stay together with a certain group, the more comfortable you get with being around each other. ”
Sterling Shepard On The Critics Low Expectations For The Giants: “We’re not too big on listening to the outside noise. We know what we have as a team, and we’re going to put our best foot forward every week. We’re going to prepare the way we’re supposed to prepare, and I’m not listening to the outside noise.”
Evan Engram On How The Team Has Come Together During Camp: “We’re just a family, we have honestly just become a family. Everyone genuinely cares for the guy next to him and you can see that on the field the way that everyone has been playing this preseason and just the competitiveness we have had at camp. All the grinding we have done together, all the hanging out we have done with each other and growing as a team like I said we are becoming a family. We just love to see guys do well. Last night was a perfect way for us to finish this preseason strong. We had 19 points going into the second half and everybody just kind of clicked and everyone felt it coming. It was just a really good ending to a really good camp and like I said we became a family. It was a good moment for our team to celebrate together, in camp on the right foot.”
Eli On Playing The Cowboys: “I think you go into every game with the same mentality. It is obviously in the division. I think those division games mean a little bit extra, because you play them twice every year and they just mean more in terms of winning your division is the only way you can guarantee getting into the playoffs. They mean a little bit more, throw in that we always seem to play them the first game of the season, is always important because it’s the first one. There’s a lot of special memories in playing the Cowboys. “
Jabrill Peppers on Big Games Against the Cowboys: ” I think they are ready for it. All of these guys have played in big games. In college, the stadiums are a lot bigger than the league stadiums, but I don’t think anybody has played in a game this magnitude. Being in the big game atmosphere definitely helps relieve some jitters. Once you get that first pop in you, I think everybody will be fine. “
Pat Shurmer on The Strength Of Dallas: ” They have an outstanding offensive line, they have an outstanding quarterback, they have really outstanding receivers, and they added Jason Witten back to the mix. Like I talked about on Monday, we have to defend that offense, and they’ve added another outstanding player to the mix. We’ll get ready to play.”
Jason Garrett On the Giants: “Well, obviously, they had a really good preseason, (and) they played very well in all three phases of their team. Sometimes it’s hard to evaluate preseason because there are so many guys who aren’t with their respective teams, but they certainly did a good job moving the ball offensively and scoring points. They played well on defense, they have playmakers all over the offense, (they put) a lot of resources into that offensive line with a lot of really good veteran players coming to the Giants. (There are) A lot of first-round picks up front and playmakers really all over the place— the running back is an elite player, receivers, tight end, quarterback, the whole thing. They really are an impressive unit— and the same thing on defense. They are talented up front, they play fast, they have playmakers on the backend with guys who have made a lot of plays on the ball throughout their career. When you watch the tape, you are certainly really impressed with their team from top to bottom. “
