Some quotes of note coming out of Giants’ camp on Thursday…
“I think just being in these halls for a long time you get the urge, get the sense and everybody that comes in, the longer they stay, the more they understand it. Having a lot of new guys around here adds an increased role I have to play in terms of letting people know about the history. It’s not just a mystique thing from the outside. It’s a true way we approach the game and life, myself and a lot of other guys who have been here have taken the lead and just going out there and showing people how to work. The majority of the guys we brought in here, I’d say like 99%, they’re workers. They understand how to play the game. They did a good job of bringing in pieces and good quality guys also.” – DE Mathias Kiwanuka, on taking on a larger leadership role this season.
“Is this the fastest offense I’ve ever played? Yeah, the tempo is upbeat. It comes down to taking development from the inside of the classroom and putting it on the field. It is fast-paced but we have the guys and the personnel to get it done.” – RB Rashad Jennings
“I’d say at the end of the 2012 season. I came here for minicamp and I felt terrible and then that’s when I had to go get surgery. That was a long time. Three years ago, right? But now I’m back and ready to go. I’m ready. It is what it is. I’m not worried about any of that. Hopefully you all have the same questions next week for me.” – DE Jason Pierre-Paul, on the last time he’s felt this healthy.
