The Giants went through their first inter-squad scrimmage Friday after starting to wear pads during practice this week.
After practice, starting QB Daniel Jones spoke to reporters over Zoom.
"There were some things we need to correct, some things we need to work on, but I think that's part of the process and part of the reason we're out there," Jones said.
"As it went on...I thought we got into a rhythm and made some plays, so that was encouraging."
Here's a few takeaways from Jones' call
On the communication with the new coaches
Along with Joe Judge, the Giants have a number of new coaches across the entire staff, including OC Jason Garrett and quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski, so everyone getting to know each other is a part of this offseason's process.
"The communication was fine," Jones said. "I think to be able to kind of simulate what you'd get in a game-like setting as far as coaches being off the field and using radios in the helmet and that process, communicating on the line of scrimmage with everyone, making sure we are on the same page I thought was good to get practice at that."
On working with Jason Garrett
"I've enjoyed it," Jones said. "I'm trying to do my best and learn the system and what he wants and kind of the details of what he wants us to execute, how he wants us to see it as quarterbacks."
On Nick Gates at center
The Giants have long been trying to figure out their offensive line problems, and this year will possibly go with Nick Gates to try and shore things up at the center position.
"Gates is someone we've worked with a lot, I've enjoyed working with (him)," Jones said. "I think he's done a good job with last year's move around position wise and he's moved around this camp so far, playing a lot of center and I think he's done a good job."
On his comfort level seeing NFL defenses in Year 2
"Recognizing things better, having a better idea pre-snap of what's going on..." Jones said on how he's been reading things so far in training camp. "Got to continue to learn, obviously it'll be different once we get into the games every week and the game plan for a new team and system."
