Giants Coordinator Corner: It's all about weathering the storm

The New York Giants are preparing to face their co-tenants, the New York Jets, this Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The Jets are 1-7 on the season and headed nowhere, while the Giants, who began the year 2-2, have lost five straight games.

The Giants three coordinators briefed the media on their units on Thursday.

Shula answered the weekly questions about rookie Daniel Jones’ turnover issues and discussed what is being done to crest them. Basically nothing new on that front. Jones just has to be smarter and protect the football better, plain and simple.

Left tackle Nate Solder has struggled this season after a strong finish last year. He is no better than the man he replaced, Ereck Flowers, and is costing the Giants a heckuva lot more money.

“He’s been like a lot of us, kind of been up and down,” Shula said of Solder. “I think last week was better. He had the one (sack) late at the end of the game. That was tough. We were in the two-minute mode and trying to get the ball out quicker. I think he and some other guys, all of us, again, as coaches and players, we’re just not quite doing all of the things right consistently. Then when you have one thing go wrong, sometimes it just feels like when you’re losing games, it kind of gets magnified.

“You just have to kind of fight through that. We haven’t put everything together yet. When we do, we feel like he’s going to be a big part of that reason why we do because, as we know, he’s a good football player. He’s talented, he has good experience. He and all of us have to come together a little bit better and more consistently.”

The Giants need Solder to play better, but it remains to be seen if he can. There is no viable Plan B if he doesn’t shape up.
