Anyone else notice the Giants switched OFF/DEF Jerseys?

Noticed Offense wearing blue and Defense wearing white...this is sure gonna confuse the hell outta me during training camp!


Just a quick observation on a slow football day.
So how does this impact the players?

It does not. They just dont care about the color of their jersey. What they do care about is making plays.

I missed where that was inferred?


Anyway, for the camp junkies when was the last time DEF wore white in camp? Im thinking it was prior to Fassell! Gonna be weird keeping up with the position drills at first.

Well, the head coach thinks it matters.

One of the first great mysteries of the Pat Shurmur era with the Giants has been solved.

When the Giants took the field for their voluntary minicamp this past week, the most striking difference was in the color of their jerseys. After decades of having offensive players in white and defensive players in blue, Shurmur switched them up. Turns out hell switch them up again at some point. And then again.

Were going to switch them up a lot, Shurmur told Newsday. The offense will wear the blue for a while and then the defense will wear the blue for a while. And then what well do is during the season, whatever jersey were wearing that week will be the color that the offense practices in.

Its designed, he said, to get the players used to seeing colors, whether its a quarterback looking down the field for open blue shirts or a safety focusing in on white shirts coming out of the backfield.

My experience with that is the shade or the color of the target moving around the field, it helps the quarterback to practice in those colors, he said.

And during the offseason program and the preseason, the players will get a dose of both.

Gettleman & Shurmur just make sound and sensible decisions concerning football operations.

Haha! Pat Shurmur disagrees with you.
Seeing colors?

Makes a lot of sense - makes you wonder why any team would ever do it differently... These brilliant nuggets of common sense just keep coming from Gettleman/Shurmur. Love it!
You know what this means, dont you?
