blog / 08.11.2016 Year 3: Let's Go
Crazy how time flies. I've been working hard this off season and during camp and we are all ready to get back out there and show you what we've been working on. Right now, I’m really focused on being really the best teammate that I can be. I've never really been a part of a culture like that where you really feel closely bonded with a team, and we’re all out here working, we’re all out here to struggle together, and that’s not always what it’s felt like, and it feels good. So right now, I’m just trying to help whoever I can help, keep learning and growing myself, and keep trying to elevate and set the standard even higher.
No matter what I do the year before, I always ask myself, what can I do to be better this year.
I've been working a lot with Sterling and some of the other new guys. I just love the feeling of being able to help and sometimes guys will come to me with questions and I give them the advice I would give myself. I hope that they could just take it, use it the same way that whatever technique they use, just do that, and add something into it.
It’s gonna be a lot of fun to get out there with Vic and Sterling and see how everything schemes out. I would love to get man-to-man. I would love to have two people on me, that’s fine, we'll just throw it to somebody else, keep the chains moving, and try and put up as many points as we can.
I’m trying to just work on patience these past few months. I feel like the man above has a lot of things that are ahead of me, and it’s hard to stay patient when you want something so bad. You feel as if it’s right there and you want to go out and get it, but it’s already gonna come to you. I'm learning to sit back and let it come to me, it’s tough.
What I really worked on this off season was running routes. I'm just trying to be crisp at the top. A lot of the times, I could be pushing up two more yards to get depth, instead I’m rolling in at 12-to-14 instead of getting to 14 and breaking in. So just being tighter on everything. Year in and year out there’s going to be something I try and find to improve on and get better on. No matter what I do the year before, it’s always gonna be, ‘What can I do to be better this year?’
This team is working harder, but we have to take it one game at a time. As always our goal is to be playing on February 5th in Houston.
I'm excited to see y'all out there tomorrow, lets go Giants Nation!!
