Giants Coordinator Corner: James Bettcher excited to have Leonard Williams

The New York Giants are preparing for their second meeting of the season with their NFC East rivals, the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night at MetLife Stadium.

The team’s three coordinators — Mike Shula (offense), James Bettcher (defense) and Thomas McGaughey (special teams) — met with the media on Friday to discuss the state of their units heading into this week’s game with the first place Cowboys.

Giants rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton only had two receptions but they both went for touchdowns. Slayton and fellow rookie, quarterback Daniel Jones, have developed a symmetry that has the organization excited.

Slayton seems to have not only world class speed but excellent field sense and a great pair of hands.

“The one thing I’ll say about that, and the first thing I want to say is that he played just like he practiced last week,” Shula said of Slayton. “All week long, he was doing the same thing. He just got into the game and did a really good job. He’s been impressive. He still has a long way to go. He’s a young guy. He’s learning on adjustments, on releases, on making contested catches. But he does a really good job of, like you said, going up and having strong hands. I think he learned from the New England game, where he had, against a really good corner, a very similar opportunity and their corner did a good job and made a play. Like everybody else and everything else, just kind of looking for when he has those opportunities again, be consistent and do those same things.”

Shula is still developing that rookie quarterback and is helping guide him through his first season at the helm of the Giants’ offense.  He doesn’t want to see Jones dwell too much on his mistakes. He needn’t worry.
