NY Giants must ‘earn fans’ respect’ with way they play

EAST RUTHERFORD — MetLife Stadium began emptying with just over six minutes to go early Sunday night.

All that was left by the time the Giants trudged off the field was a loud orange-clad Broncos contingent in the stands at the end of another frustrating loss to start their season.

Broncos 27, Giants 13.

For the fifth straight year, with three different head coaches on the sideline and an array of different faces suiting up and enduring the pain and embarrassment, the Giants watched a similar script play out in their home building, and it was hard to stomach.

“Yeah, I mean, it’s tough, man,” Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard said. “Like Coach [Joe] Judge said, these people pay their hard-earned money to come see winning football. That’s what this franchise is all about is winning, that’s what the history’s been all about. So, it’s been frustrating the past few years, I understand the frustration, we’re not happy about it as well. We’ve got to dig our cleats in the ground, we’ve got to get the fans what they want. Yeah, it’s frustrating, I hate seeing them having to leave the game early. That’s something that, like, I honestly really notice. I’m locked into the game, but you can’t help but see people lined up in the tunnel. It’s no fun seeing that.”

The Giants (0-1) reached the end zone for a second time Sunday as time expired when Daniel Jones ran for a touchdown on the game’s final play. The soundtrack that played on the heels of that cosmetic score included cheers from the Denver faithful, who witnessed their team win a September game for the first time in eight tries.

“We have to earn the fans’ respect,” Judge said. “It’s not their job to show up and cheer just to cheer. Their job is to be entertained.”
