With Giants set to play first preseason game, here's what to look for

Finally we get to see how Shurmur, offensive coordinator Mike Shula, and defensive coordinator James Bettcher and the Giants staff plans to attack the 2018 season, from a new offensive system called by Shurmur to Bettcher’s aggressive 3-4, blitz-heavy D. Shurmur said of his initial goals for the first game: “I think it’s important that we operate as a staff and get in and out of the huddle, making sure we’ve got the right people on the field. And there’s a lot to be learned, especially between the first and the second preseason game, when you’re a new staff working together. We have a blueprint for how we want to do it, and games are uncontrolled settings, and there’s things that happen. So, the more uncontrolled things that happen in the game, the more opportunity you have to learn, and I think that’s what we’re looking for. So, we’re trying to balance getting our team ready to play Jacksonville with doing the final evaluations on the guys that’ll be on our initial 53.”
