Quarterback Tommy DeVito
On what his goals coming into today's game were:
"Just to have fun, honestly. Obviously, there are a lot of external things like pressure, first NFL game, it's not official, it's a preseason game right. Now it's just really playing the game of football. I've been playing since I'm five, six years old. I'm enjoying it. Just help lead the team, move the ball, I wasn't really thinking about it. Just enjoy it one play at a time and go from there."
On how today's game went:
"I think it turned out well at times. There were a lot of things to clean up, a couple throws that I missed that will haunt me tonight, that I'll be sitting up thinking about. But I think it's just a step in the right direction and I look forward to getting up tomorrow and watching the film."
On if any teammates on the sideline were giving him feedback:
"Everybody was, especially (Giants QBs) Daniel (Jones) and Tyrod (Taylor), just going back and picking their brains as to what they saw, what can I do here, what can I do better, just small things in that detail just looking at the iPads and they helped me a lot throughout the game."
On if he was able to keep the game ball:
"Yeah, I have it in my locker actually. One of the equipment guys gave it to me. I don't know if he knows I have it, but I assume we'll have that conversation coming up very soon."
On if he had family in attendance tonight:
"I did, yeah. Mom, dad, brother and a couple friends."
On what he wants to accomplish in this training camp:
"I mean, honestly I don't know what the future holds for that, but for me it was just showing improvement day-by-day and week-by-week and obviously game-by-game. It was the first preseason game so when I look at the film tomorrow, the next preseason game, I want to be able to take that leap and really just see what I did wrong and what little things I can clean up, ball placement on some things even if it might've been completions, it could've been better and gotten a couple more yards. At the end of training camp, show the growth that I've made from the time that I walked in the door."
On how different he is from the player he first was when he came in undrafted:
"Very. All mental, really between the ears, learning from (Giants Quarterbacks Coach) Shea Tierney about defenses and the whole offense and (Giants Offensive Coordinator Mike Kafka) Coach Kaf and just playing it like I'm a little kid that learns to swim again, they just throw him in the pool and then all of a sudden they float and they figure it out. That's how it was when I first got out so a lot of information coming all at one time. I really try to segment it then put it together. Being able to have a game atmosphere, it was slower and it calmed down and I'm looking forward to what's to come."
On what Giants QBs Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor told him in the game:
"Really just to enjoy it. D.J. told me he was nervous the first time going out for his first preseason game. Obviously, Tyrod's had a million of them, so he's sort of helped me with certain situations like, 'Be weary in case the headset cuts off.' Because I've never really had a headset on before, it's not something I've really thought about. So little things like that that they've helped me with coming into the game, really just taking a deep breath and enjoy it. That's what I tried to do."
