Giants wrecking crew getting at it in 2024

The Giants newest acquisition Brian Burns is lighting a fire under fellow edge Kayvon Thobodeaux as the pair look to take the NFC East by storm.

“We’re chasing greatness every day,” said Thibodeaux. “He knows a lot of things. He been in the league a lot longer than I have. He got a lot of game, a lot of gems that’s going to help my game. Continue to get with him on and off the field and continue to grow.”

“Me and Thibodaux have been hanging out a lot,” Burns said. “Trying to build that chemistry, build that bond.”

When asked how Thibodeaux could improve, new Giants Linebackers coach Charlie Bullen said “”Consistency.”

Giants defence could be destructive

“Learning how to be a pro and understanding all that goes with it and what the program entails and how to be a great pass-rusher, that is first and foremost. And I think having someone like Burns in the room working alongside him will help him, be an example that shows him where those next steps can come and how he can become consistent.”

Giants head coach Brian Daboll has been effusive in his praise for Burns already.

“First, I would say he’s a great teammate, practices the way you want a pro to practice. Particularly, a player of his type caliber,” Daboll said. “I think he’s done a good job with the outside linebackers and his room of being a good mentor. He leads by example, but he also will speak up if he needs to speak up.

“He’s been a really good addition to our football team up to this point. Glad we have him. Whether it’s on defense, whether it’s talking to guys on offense, the offensive line about certain things, good person and a good player.”
