OL Adam Bisnowaty

May 12, 2017

Q: How was your first day?

A: It was wonderful. It's great to put the helmet back on, get back out there and it's a lot of fun. It's great to put the Giants helmet on too. Just have a lot of fun out there and keep improving.

Q: You were mostly at right tackle?

A: That's correct.

Q: Is that where they told you could be?

A: The depth chart today said right tackle so that's where I was at. Wherever my name is at, I'll play and I'm excited to be out on the field.

Q: You feel comfortable of both side correct? You played left in college, right?

A: Correct, I also played a little bit of guard in college, so I'm comfortable playing either position, either side. Either way, I'll be out there and play as hard as I can.

Q: Is there much difference in what the Giants do, then what happened in Pitt?

A: When you play football now a days, it's a lot of zone, power. You pass the ball. At the end of the day, it's the same thing. It's the way they call it, that's a little different. I think that's no matter where you go, whatever organization you're at. I think it's just learning the terminology, and the fundamentals are pretty much the same, just learning everything they way that it's supposed to be done and executing it.

Q: Is it hard to be an offensive lineman and not really hit anybody?

A: You'd like to have the pads on, but you're still getting physical out there. It's a lot of fun. You get out and get after it. I had this helmet on for a while, so just get after it, be out there on the field is a great feeling.

Q: You have reputation for being a little nasty and a big heavy hitter, it would be hard to pull up a little bit.

A: I was told to slow it down a little bit through some of the periods. But I just have to go out there and go as hard as you can and keep getting better.

Q: How did Davis Webb handle the huddle?

A: He was great. Met him through this process and once I found out we both got drafted here, that was great. I can't wait to hang out with him. In the huddle, he's a natural, he's a great player, great leader. So, he handled himself very well, just like anything else.

Q: Did you have to lean on the quarterback?

A: The quarterback runs the huddle, and basically everything on the field. So, you need someone to be out there who knows what they are doing. Who can hold themselves to a high standard.

Q: How do you think you fit in this offensive line?

A: I met a few guys the past two days and I think slowly, I'll start meeting them as next week comes. It seems like a great group, I only heard good things about them. I'm excited to step in and continue to building that group and continue to bring my skill set to the table.

Q: Are you enjoying the Penguins these days?

A: We have a big game tomorrow. So hopefully we'll be able to watch that. We got Ottowa this week, so it's a big one. It's going to be a good game, I can't wait to watch that series. The last one was a little hectic there, I thought we would finish a little earlier. But it's playoff hockey.

Q: Are you in intrigued by the transition to the NFL?

A: I just try to be who I am. The reason why they chose me was to come here and try to be that same person. Be the same person that I am on and off the field, just continue that. It has got me here, and I think it's going to continue to make me pretty successful.

Reminiscent of what Jerry Reese once said about Diehl, "You win with guys like Dave Diehl."
p.s.--Just did some googling and found the exact quote from 2012 (although I think he's said it more than once)...
Quote:
You win with guys like Diehl. Hes a lunchpail guy. Drafted him in the fifth round and almost got run out of town when we said he would be our starting left tackle. And we won two Super Bowls with Diehl at left tackle. Selfless. Plays anywhere.
If Bisnowaty can be another David Diehl, that would be a steal. In fact, that's how Gil Brandt described Diehl when the Giants drafted him in the 5th round of the 2003 draft. I wonder what Brandt had to say about Bisnowaty...

I think he ends up playing LT. I think he's more mobile and quicker than Flowers. And I'd like to see Flowers' bulk at RT. Not sure why Reese and McAdoo continue to say that they expect a quantum leap from Flowers at LT this year. They're seeing something that I don't see. But then they know a lot more than I do.
I don't think he's quicker than Flowers. Flowers has

very quick feet. It's just that his technique is awful and never seems to get better consistently. Bisnowaty is said to have very good technique but not quick feet.

I think that Bisnowaty is more likely to play RT or even G before he starts at LT. I think that the Giants got a steal in Chad Wheeler and he is going to develop into a starter down the road. Wheeler is a better fit at LT over Bisnowaty.
