Too early to lose, you say? Don’t tell that to one of the newest Giants, Deon Grant, who was with the Seahawks last season when new head coach Jim Mora Jr. took over.
According to Grant, Mora pushed the team so hard in the first few weeks of the preseason that by the time the games started for real, some of the players already had checked out. “A lot of guys were fatigued out, a lot of guys were lost mentally because they didn’t expect the camp to be as long as it was as far as how long it went on and the amount of breaks we didn’t receive,” Grant said.
“We didn’t receive any breaks. You have to find something within you to make it fun and enjoy what you do, but a lot of the fun was gone from it because of how hard camp was.”
