Should you don’t have all the data, you weren’t within the room … it’s not honest of me to make any judgments.

They’re all leaders, all of them know learn how to lead males. That’s what you want: intelligence, management and the idea you rent an clever man you’re going to have a imaginative and prescient. … There’s one million items to it, take into consideration a head coach and all of the issues he has to juggle I’m certain as soon as every week they suppose, gosh, I want I may simply be offensive coordinator, or no matter it was … it’s a load and you’ve got to have the ability to deal with that load.
On second choose of draft: I’ll deal with that proper now: You may by no means have too many gamers at one place. We had Strahan, Osi, drafting Tuck and Kiwanuka and individuals are us like we don’t know what we’re doing.
On Odell: I don’t know Odell. Trying ahead to it. Extraordinarily proficient child, makes stuff occur. What’s that tune? Attending to know you? We’ll get to know one another and we’ll go from there so we’ll see.
On seeing Odell-Norman sport: If you take a look at gamers you see issues on movie, you see issues on tape. For instance, I’ll speak about a defensive again. Individuals will say he can’t cowl man, so I say inform me why. Don’t make blanket assertion, break it down. I do not know what’s happening in Odell’s head that sport, I do not know why that occurred, I might need to sit down with Odell and ask, why? Disgrace on me if I’ve any preconceived notions of individuals… everybody goes to get a good shake.
On entrance workplace personnel: I promised if I used to be the king, everybody would get a possibility. I haven’t been right here for 5 years … folks change. Let me get in right here, let me discuss, let me see what’s cooking earlier than we get into that.
On Giants followers livid with season: I’ve to take a look at this staff, take a look at the gamers on this staff with that very same eye and determine it out … I do know from watching there are some high quality gamers on this roster.
