Richard Sherman disrupted the twitterverse yet again with some good old social media smack talk with Patrick Peterson. Priceless. Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara has stayed out of the virtual boxing ring. He follows the Tom Coughlin approach by keeping quiet and fighting hard on the field.
While he was responding to a question about the Giants’ noteworthy offseason moves in the secondary of Walter Thurmond and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, it explains why he has and will continue to steer clear of Sherman’s twitter handle.
“At the end of the day Coach Coughlin is still our coach, and his motto is, ‘Talk is cheap, play the game,'” cornerback Prince Amukamara said, via ESPN New York. “So I think if anyone starts to open their mouth a little too much, I think he’ll shut it for us real quick.”
That doesn’t mean they don’t have confidence. They’re comfortable and excitable. The new additions are the perfect infusion of energy.
“I would say during this camp we are starting to tune to our swag,” Amukamara said. “With the addition of Walter and [Rodgers-Cromartie], they definitely bring a different dimension to our defensive backfield, and it’s pretty contagious.”
The Giants’ defensive backfield will attempt the respected and refreshing “leave it on the field” approach. They’re not going to shock people on twitter or even with the comments during in-person interviews. The most you’ll get out of the is the occasional chest thump and, perhaps, a song-and-dance routine led by Charles James, which ESPN New York Kieran Darcy witnessed.
