"ARLINGTON, Texas — The questions were coming at Olivier Vernon, and eventually, he had to clear things up. “I wasn’t here last year, but I’ve heard,” Vernon said. “I’ve heard.” No, Vernon was not with the Giants in 2015, when they faded away down the stretch on defense of so many games. He was playing for the Dolphins. Yes, he learned how bad the Giants were on defense, which is why they signed him to an $85 million contract in an overhaul to turn the NFL’s worst-ranked defense into something far more competitive and productive. The plan, with a few hiccups, worked as the Giants opened their season with a 20-19 victory over the Cowboys. Vernon, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and defensive tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison — the other two big-ticket free-agent acquisitions — all played a role in fortifying a defense that limited the Cowboys to one touchdown and held together during tense moments in the", nypost.com
"ARLINGTON, Texas — Ben McAdoo, 1-0 as a head coach in the NFL, was asked how it feels. “I’m still replaying the game in my head,’’ McAdoo said not long after Sunday’s 20-19 season-opening victory over the Cowboys. “Sometime in February I’ll enjoy it.’’ If McAdoo was feeling any sort of personal satisfaction, he kept it well-hidden. He was stoic as he matter-of-factly described a taut victory that was not secured until the final seconds. When he was asked his emotions after the game, McAdoo sounded as if he had little use for the question. “My emotions didn’t have much to do with anything,’’ he said. “I was focused on the game.’’ McAdoo did call the plays after playing it coy all spring and throughout training camp and the preseason, not revealing whether he would call the offensive plays or cede that responsibility to his offensive coordinator, Mike Sullivan.

"The Giants don’t have to look far to see the trouble that free time in the summer can produce. It was just last July when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul nearly ruined his career during a fireworks accident that mangled his right hand. With that in mind, several Giants veterans met with the organization’s younger players before everyone departed for the six-week break prior to training camp to emphasize being careful and staying in top condition. The message was simple. “Remind them that they’ve worked their entire life to get to this position and find themselves in one of these buildings, and how it could be taken away so quick,” veteran running back Rashad Jennings said after the final practice of the three-day minicamp on Thursday. “You know, take advantage of it. It goes a long way when you hear it from players more so than coaches, so we have some veteran leadership that [took] the time to make sure we’re preaching it in the", nypost.com
"Ben, make it a vacation. Soon enough, there will not be any time for a moment’s peace. Life as an NFL head coach is like that, all-consuming, and for a novice 38-year-old head coach, every experience is brand new. Every step is a first-timer, every decision a precedent-setting moment, every misstep labeled as born out of inexperience. New Giants coach Ben McAdoo bid his team adieu Thursday, his first offseason as an NFL head coach — though “offseason’’ is a misnomer when there is a conditioning program, 10 organized team activity practices, two veteran minicamps and one rookie camp. He was hired Jan. 15 to replace deposed legend Tom Coughlin, and five months later, McAdoo’s imprint is not yet indelibly on the team, but the fingerprints are starting to show. “I blinked my eyes and it was over,’’ he said of this first stage of the process. “Very fast. Tough to slow things down in this business.’’ The", nypost.com
