Another high motor...guy

I thought Banks was gonna say it for Alex Wesley, no dice tho
But that was a sick play

no doubt
The difference with the regards to the attitude of this years team  
montanagiant : 8/8/2019 11:59 pm : link
Vs last years is obvious.

Really a fun team you can root for
These are the things

that make preseason so fun. No idea if the kid can find his way onto the team but he's trying to live his dream and until the day he dies he can say he scored a touchdown in the NFL. Feel good stories are like this are great.
This kid grew up a mile away from where

Yeah, and that really means a lot.

I mean, of course I want them to win. And if they can't win a lot of games, I at least want them to look entertaining. And if they can't manage that, I will settle for a likeable group whose future I can be invested in.

No one saw that coming maybe the least likely standout
one could think of he must have been on cloud nine
after that play then the locker room chant reminded
me of Animal House !
thats awesome to see

my buddy and I went to a bunch of LIU games the past couple of years. Carlock obviously stood out as the clear leader of that team. I just can't believe he's in the Giants camp and actually having a shot at making the team

NFL network switched to the Cards game. Kid has wheels. I know he is a bit undersized, but fast for a LB.

Mine too. :)

I have a younger brother who is close with Jake. He was there last night with the family and all his friends. They were really pumped up for him. It was pretty cool.
This is the kind

of player who, at the very least, you would think would be great for special teams. He can also long-snap apparently.
Great locker room  
Jay in Toronto : 8/9/2019 8:51 am : link
I was very impressed with the tone set by the coach. It does look like a nice team culture is being set.

Relatedly, most sideline shots show Jones engaged with Lawrence. I beleive they are roomies. A strong bond between likely leaders of the O and D may be a real blessing.
Great moment for him

I am a big believer in having a positive team attitude. Every team has highs and lows, but a good team attitude can get you through these things. I am not a guy who just wants "the most talented players". Lots of times that leads to trainwrecks if they aren't also good locker room guys (stay tuned for the Browns).
Not quite my home town, but I've lived here since 2005

I don't know him personally, but a lot of my fellow Babylonians are very excited about his success and have nothing but good things to say about him.

I have a local news site that I run, homeinbabylon.com. I've spoken with him over e-mail and I was going to do an interview, but schedules didn't align. I may do it later in the year if things work out.

By the way, if anyone has any pictures of Jake, either from training camp or at a game, that they personally took and would be willing to let me use, I would be most appreciative. E-mail me at my webguy@bigblueinteractive.com address.
Sneaking suspicion that this might be an easy team to root for

Its been awhile since we've had that
Carlock looks like he has some speed. Has anyone seen a 40 yd dash  
Ira : 8/9/2019 10:08 am : link
time for him?
Carlock is undersized - there's a reason  
islander1 : 8/9/2019 1:26 pm : link
He was a strong safety at LIU, if information is accurate.

I can't find any 40 yard dash info, though.
I like Shurmer's tone  
Reale01 : 8/9/2019 1:43 pm : link
Comes across as genuinely happy but business-like. Love the tone in "we got some things to clean up, but that'll happen"

He was a DB at LIU but I don't think strong safety is accurate. I can't find a link but I remember reading articles when he signed with the Giants - he was more of a go-everywhere rover back along the lines of how Brad Van Pelt or Brian Urlacher played in college. (Not saying he's as good as them, just trying to describe his position.)
