One day after the New York Giants lost to the Cleveland Browns Youth Kareem Martin Jersey , 20-10, in their preseason opener, head coach Pat Shurmur assessed the game by telling reporters that he told players “that if each guy cleans up one mistake, then we end up being on the winning end of a game like that.”Here are some of the takeaways from Shurmur’s day-after-game conference call.On the play of rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta ...“He’s very calm, and I think he finds a way to make plays. He had a nice deep ball down the sideline to Amba [Etta-Tawo] that ended up being a [pass interference]. ... I [think] he’s got a calm presence about him. I think he lost control of the clock once, we got the ball snapped, but those are all things you learn when you’re playing. So, it wasn’t a bad performance to start out for him.”On whether the Giants got any clarity at free safety ..“Curtis [Riley] wasn’t out there and then [Darian Thompson] hurt himself on one of the special teams and was out of the game with a hamstring. Probably no. In terms of the clarity, no. There were guys that were out there performing well, but in terms of saying this is the guy, I would say no.”On the sideline operation for a new coaching staff ...“I thought it was much smoother than I had anticipated. Typically, for a staff that’s worked together for years, you would have a communication breakdown or two that you need to work through, but I thought we were able to communicate pretty effectively. We already debriefed it. There are a couple things that we’ll keep private that we’ll do a little bit differently, but for the most part I thought the exchange of information was good. We really didn’t have substitution errors. That usually shows up in preseason games, to speak of. Again, we need to keep building on that. You have to constantly work at communicating, and certainly being able to do that on the sideline can help the players play better.”On the play of Davis Webb ...“He is so prepared and he wants to do well Youth Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , that’s just his personality, and he does get amped up a little bit but that’s not a bad thing. Wanting to do well is a good thing. I think we as coaches can just help him with that.”On the clock mismanagement at the end of the first half ...“There’s nothing other than the fact that we have to get out of bounds on that play. We called a route to get out of bounds and the throw was thrown inside, and it makes it almost impossible for the receiver to continue out of bounds. We knew we had to use the sideline because we didn’t have any timeouts. We had that communicated effectively, it just didn’t get done.”On upcoming joint practices with the Detroit Lions ...“My experience against practicing against one another is both teams need to be smart. Both teams need to understand the tempo of every drill. We’re out there competing, but this certainly isn’t the first time teams have practiced against one another. When Matt [Patricia] was the defensive coordinator at New England, I did it twice when I was with Philadelphia. I’ve worked with Matt before. We’ve got a good feel of the tempo and how we want to do it. We kind of set the ground rules ahead of time, and try to get good work.” Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn isn't expecting moves before Tuesday's NFL trade deadline.More than that, Quinn says he sees no need for the resurgent Falcons to seek help from a trade.The Falcons (3-4) return from their bye week looking to continue momentum from two straight wins as they prepare to play at Washington (5-2) on Sunday."We really feel this team, where we're at and how we can go and attack from here, we have the right men to do that," Quinn said after Monday's practice when asked about the trade deadline.That's a strong vote of confidence from the coach of a team with six starters on injured reserve — including both safeties and both offensive guards.Quinn said he and general manager Thomas Dimitroff have discussed inquiries from other teams but haven't found a trade to pursue. "Not at this point," he said.Quinn and Dimitroff have been kept busy this season adjusting to the growing list of players lost with injuries.The latest challenge comes on the offensive line.Right guard Brandon Fusco suffered a broken right ankle in Atlanta's win over the New York Giants on Oct. 22 and was placed on injured reserve last week. Fusco joined left guard Andy Levitre on IR. Levitre suffered a season-ending triceps injury in a Week 2 win over Carolina.Wes Schweitzer has filled in for Levitre. Another veteran with starting experience, Ben Garland, will move up this week to replace Fusco at right guard.Garland will face an immediate challenge against a Redskins defense that sacked Giants quarterback Eli Manning seven times in Sunday's 20-13 win ."I was very impressed with the stoutness of their inside three guys," Quinn said, naming nose tackle Daron Payne and defensive ends Matt Ioannidis and Jonathan Allen. Ioannidis had 2 陆 sacks against the Giants.Garland, who started three games last season, has experience at both guard spots and even has seen spot duty at defensive tackle."I'm confident playing left (guard) B.J. Hill Jersey ," Garland said. "I'm confident playing right. Center. It doesn't matter. Tight end, fullback. Put me anywhere. I'm ready to go."The Falcons added depth to the line by signing Rees Odhiambo and Austin Pasztor during their bye week. Pasztor, who can play either tackle position, played in seven games with Atlanta in 2017. Odhiambo, who will learn the offense while playing left guard, spent the last four weeks on the Colts practice squad.Fusco is Atlanta's sixth player to be placed on IR this season, joining Levitre, safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen, linebacker Deion Jones and running back Devonta Freeman . Jones, who must sit out at least two more games, and Freeman could return later this season.The bye week provided Quinn the rare opportunity to open a practice week without having to discuss a new injury. Instead, the news was positive.Placekicker Matt Bryant, who missed the Giants game with a hamstring injury, has not been ruled out for this week. More will be known about Bryant's status later in the week. Giorgio Tavecchio was the only placekicker on the field in the portion of Monday's practice open to reporters."He's making a turn for the better," said Quinn of Bryant. "... The thing I was fired up about is he's closer than he was last week by quite a bit."Quinn said the bye week also came at a good time for wide receivers Mohamed Sanu (hip) and Calvin Ridley (ankle). "That's the good news," Quinn said, adding he was "hopeful we'll be at full strength at receiver."
