  Good morning <a title="" href="" COLOR="MEDIUMSLATEBLUE">></a> , a leaderSaquon Barkley is a rookie, but his talent and his personality have already made him a leader in the Giants¡¯ locker room.¡°I spent a few minutes sitting with him on the plane after the game. I really think some of your younger players can be your best leaders,¡± coach Pat Shurmur said. ¡°He displays humility, he says the right thing but when he says it, and you all write about it and report on it, don¡¯t you sense a genuine nature to what he says? You¡¯ve got a genuine, competitive guy that can do really great things on the football field, and so those guys can lead naturally by just being themselves. If Saquon comes in every day and every day becomes the best version of Saquon he can become, and he sticks to those principles and that integrity, then of course, he¡¯ll be a terrific leader, and he already has established himself that way.Barkley said Tuesday he felt as if he was in a position to be a leader and is trying to earn the role.¡°It¡¯s just the way you carry yourself, the way you work. Come to work with your head down, try to do anything you can possible to help the team. That stuff goes a long way,¡± Barkley said. ¡°Obviously your play on the field goes a long way too, but try to be one of the first people in here <a title="" href=""></a> , working your butt off in the weight room, asking questions, try to prepare yourself like a pro, like a vet. Stuff like that is what sits well with your team and that¡¯s how I try to continue to grow into that role.¡±Shepard explains outburstAfter an Eli Manning interception on Sunday, Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard had an uncharacteristic sideline temper tantrum. ¡°I really wanted to win that game. That¡¯s the bottom line. I felt it kind of slipping away right there, and some other stuff going on too,¡± Shepard said. ¡°Everything is OK. I¡¯m getting through it. It¡¯ll be alright.¡±Like many of his teammates, Shepard said Tuesday that he feels like the Giants are heading in the right direction despite being 1-4.¡°I¡¯m so proud of the team. The way that we fought through adversity (vs. Carolina),¡± he said. ¡°That¡¯s the best I¡¯ve seen the team in a while. We¡¯re taking steps in the right direction every week, and guys are doing a great job taking steps in the right direction.¡±¡®Snacks¡¯ on the Eagles¡¯ slow startThe defending champion Eagles might have been expected to run away with the NFC East. So, why a 2-3 start for Philadelphia? Giants¡¯ defensive tackle Damon Harrison isn¡¯t sure.¡°I don¡¯t know. I think they¡¯re just still searching for ¨C it¡¯s tough to put a name to it,¡± Harrison said. ¡°I don¡¯t know, they just haven¡¯t looked the same.¡±Around the Inter-GoogleWelcome to the NFC East where .500 is good enough to be in first placeEven if Washington loses Monday night and falls to .500, it'll be in first place of an NFC East in which nothing is ever simple, predictable or routine.NFL tells Giants they got crucial Landon Collins penalty wrong against PanthersThanks for nothing.That is essentially what the Giants have to say to the NFL office after receiving confirmation about something they already knew: Landon...6 reasons why the Eagles will still win the NFC East over Giants, Cowboys <a title="" href=""></a> , Redskins | NJ.comDespite their 2-3 record, the Eagles are still in control of their own destiny in the NFC East.Sterling Shepard on his sideline implosion: ¡®That¡¯s not me¡¯Sterling Shepard took a look at his actions on the sideline during last Sunday¡¯s 33-31 loss at Charlotte and did not like what he saw. Not at all.¡°That¡¯s...Giants have become butt of joke and it started with Beckham talkThere was a time when the circus supposedly resided in the locker room of the other tenants of MetLife Stadium, but now it seems the Giants can¡¯t escape from...Landon Collins wants to captain Giants¡¯ defense New York Giants safety Landon Collins is ready to take on a leadership role. When asked on Wednesday if being named captain is something he will be seeking out, he responded with, ¡°that¡¯s an easy question, yes,¡± adding, ¡°I definitely want to be a captain of this defense one of these years.¡±Giants head coach Pat Shurmur will be naming team captains for the season following the team¡¯s final preseason game. And it¡¯s a good year for Collins to finally be named defensive captain; the 2015 second-round draft pick has been named to the Pro Bowl for the past two season and has started in all 47 games he¡¯s played. It¡¯s also the final year of his rookie contract, with no guarantee that he¡¯ll remain with the Giants in 2019. ¡°One of these years,¡± may instead be ¡°one of these days.¡±Collins shared his thoughts on leadership in an NFL locker room: ¡°It comes through regardless of the fact, winning or losing. If you¡¯re winning, people get comfortable and you¡¯ve got to continue pressing that... From that point of view, it goes hand in hand. If you¡¯re losing, you definitely need [leadership] and when you¡¯re winning, you especially need it because you need to keep everybody focused.¡±On Week 3 of the preseason and the New York JetsCollins expects the Giants¡¯ starting defense ¡°to play about three quarters¡± against the New York Jets on Friday night. And he¡¯s hoping it will give a chance for his side of the ball¡ªwhich is still adapting to new defensive coordinator James Bettcher¡¯s system¡ªto work out any remaining kinks. Collins is ¡°excited about almost getting a whole game in and making sure we stay on the same page as a defense and making sure we don¡¯t have any mental errors out there... just because it¡¯s a new defense. We want to make sure we get everything correct, be sound <a title="Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey" href="">Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey</a> , be prepared and always playing fast.¡±He¡¯s also ¡°excited¡± about going up against rookie Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, who he believes will ¡°do a great job at the Jets,¡± but nonetheless noted that on Friday Darnold will be ¡°playing against a good defense and we¡¯re going to have fun with it.¡±On pre-snap movementCollins is enjoying that Bettcher is allowing him to move around before the snap this year, particularly that, ¡°guys key on me. Offensive guys, especially coordinators and quarterbacks, I see them eyeing me all the time, saying ¡®21¡¯ or stuff like that.¡± The goal is ¡°to move in and out of the box, trying not to give them a clean read on where we¡¯re coming from and stuff like that, or give them an idea of what kind of defense we are in.¡±This isn¡¯t a decree from Bettcher, however; it¡¯s more that Collins does it, succeeds at it and Bettcher sees no need to tell him otherwise. ¡°They kind of give me the freedom to [move around],¡± said Collins. ¡°They don¡¯t ask me to do it. They know I know I can get to my position wherever I¡¯m at on the field and do a good job at it.¡±
