A hot one at QDTC on Wednesday, but the Giants got through it just fine. (See highlights). Here are some notable quotes from Day Two’s post-practice media session:
“He’s made good, steady progress. He’s, naturally, a year later, a year more into it so he’s more comfortable with what’s going on. It’s not one of those things where you don’t notice that he’s out there because he does have a correction here or there. We like what we see. His continued development in the weight room with just some added muscle and strength, a little bit more size is something that will help a lot.” - Tom Coughlin on what kind of growth he’s seen from second-year DE Damontre Moore.
“It’s going well. I think we communicate well. I’m trying to ask him lots of questions, he’s asking questions about what I like, what I like in two-minute, what plays I feel comfortable with. I think we’re communicating well and getting on the same page.” – QB Eli Manning on how his relationship with new OC Ben McAdoo is progressing.
“Just flying around, that’s one thing I knew. In certain times I’m on the field and in certain areas on the field and I see multiple guys there, so I can tell this is a defense that gets after people.” - CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on what he’s looking forward to the most about being with the Giants.
“You said ‘how worried am I?’ I’m not worried at all. Rehab is not like I’m just sitting around and not doing anything. That’s my whole point of getting back on the field – rehab, doing something every day, doing something every day and every week to make my knee stronger.” - WR Mario Manningham when asked if he is concerned that he’s still not 100% 18 months after his knee surgery.
