T Nate Solder -- September 18, 2019
Q: How did you react initially (to the change at quarterback)?
A: You know what, I just count my blessings. We all have a short time here. We all have an opportunity to play this game and for this wonderful organization. Iím just thankful for my position here. We have a lot of football ahead of us. I focus on the things that we need to keep working on.
Q: How do you think Eli (Manning) has handled himself thus far?
A: Like he always does. Heís an absolute pro. Iím so thankful to get the opportunity to be with him and see how he goes about his business.
Q: Are you encouraged by what Daniel Jones brings to the table?
A: Iím excited. Iím encouraged. We have a great group in this locker room. There are a lot of things to be happy about.
Q: Has this change affected the locker room at all?
A: Not that Iíve noticed, but I think that we have a lot to worry about. We have a great team with Tampa coming up, and we need to be prepared for that. We have to focus on the things that we need to do to win that game.
Q: Is there anything special you guys can do to help the first game for Daniel Jones become an easier task for him?
A: Itís not an easy task, and I think itís going to take all of us. Itís never one guy. Itís always a group effort. Itís always all three phases of the game. Itís all working together. Thatís how you help a guy out like that. We take that very seriously protecting him and running the ball and all of the things that we need to do to be successful as an offense.
Q: Does he show you that heís the type of guy who can handle the responsibility of being the quarterback for the New York Giants in your mind?
A: Oh man, I love Daniel. I think heís doing an excellent job. Heís taking one day at a time. Heís working hard. Like I said, it takes 11 guys. Itís not just one.
