Daniel Jones has already made significant changes since firing offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
Like many defenders in the league, the Giants ’starting signalter wore a wristband that actually lists the team’s game calls this week, and he is expected to do so in Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
“All of our defenders are wearing bracelets this week,” head coach Joe Judj said ahead of Friday’s training session. “It’s something that many of our players and coaches have used in the past. We thought it could be helpful for our players to move forward. Just different communication methods. “
The Giants have had hearing problems in recent weeks, but the judge answered “No, it’s not” when asked if the bracelet key reflects a “delay” in delivering calls to Jones during the collection. . He said the team has “really not changed” the terminology of calling the game for this week’s game.
The judge did not say whether he or interim coordinator Freddie Kitchens would call the performances this week, and said they were “all working together.”
The Giants ’safety trained Javier McKinn as an Alabama teammate for three seasons against the Eagles’ new player DeVonta Smith and two seasons against Philadelphia defender Jalen Hurts. He called Sunday’s game a “big challenge” for the giants.
“These guys are playing ball,” McKinney told The Post. “We worked together and always made sure we did better for each other. But they were guys who always loved to stand up to me and train against them, because I always knew they would make me better and fight as a player.
“We have had very competitive operations against each other. I respect them a lot, but it’s like any other week. It won’t be easy, of course, but let’s get ready for Sunday’s game. I look forward to meeting them. ”
McKinney added that he was “not at all surprised” by Smith’s impact as a new player. The Heisman Trophy winner, selected by the Eagles after overtaking the giants interested in the project, has 46 receptions for 664 yards and four touchdowns through 11 games.
“I always knew he was great, what a player and a competitor he was, and it wouldn’t be hard to do right away what he’s doing in the league,” McKinney said. “Actually, I expect more from him. I’m not surprised by what he did. I saw this in practice every day [at Alabama]”.
WR Sterling Shepard (four), TE Kaden Smith (knee) and FB Kallen Gillaspia (calf) will miss Sunday, while WR Cadarius Tony (four) and TE Kyle Rudolf (ankle) are among the suspects. ‘yxatida. RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) and WR John Ross (quartet) are practically limited and questionable.
When asked if the Eagles were “disrespectful” to the NFL for bypassing Hurts and others after last season’s final to secure a playoff berth for the Giants, the referee said: “Last year’s no. things don’t matter on Sunday. “
