Giants desperation, turn to Taylor wk 17

The Giants have killed the Tommy DeVito fairytale of New York and are turning to veteran Tyron Taylor for they week 17 matchup against the Rams.

“I thought Taylor did some good things in the second half of Philly, so he earned the right to start this game,” Giants head coach Brian Daboll said. “Getting ready for the Rams. Really have nothing else to add on it. That’s where we’re at.”

Despite his lack of experience, DeVito seems to have taken the news in stride “Yeah, continue to be a good teammate. Obviously, it’s a coaches’ decision. I have, obviously, no say in that,” DeVito said. “But I’m going to continue to be a good teammate, go out and compete. That’s it.”

GIANTS ALREADY ELIMINATED FROM PLAYOFFS

Tyrod Taylor was understandably pleased with the news, “It means everything to me,” Taylor said. “Obviously the work that you put in week in, week out — been playing this game a long time — anytime you get a chance to lace up the cleats and go out and compete means the world to me. That is when I’m the happiest. It’s what I love to do, to be able to go out and not only show your peers but prove it to yourself what you can do.”

The Giants are already out of the playoffs, and are solely playing for pride.
