Giants S Landon Collins is excited about the way the Giants are shaping up under new coach Pat Shurmur -- and he senses a difference from last season.
"They don't want no [expletive]," Collins said on Tuesday when asked about the head coach, as well as new general manager Dave Gettleman, according to Tom Rock of Newsday.
The Giants ushered in new leadership after firing head coach Ben McAdoo in December before finishing the season with then-defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo at the helm as interim head coach. Spagnuolo has since left the team as well.
"Honestly, that's the thing," Collins said. "They want people who want to win, they want people who want to play, they want people who are hungry and are going to go on the field and do their thing. It's more positive, it's more get-after-it, and I would say back to the Giants way."
The 24-year-old said he is progressing well in his recovery from a fractured forearm and said he has been able to run throughout the process. Collins said he is hoping to return by minicamp in June.
A two-time Pro Bowler, Collins has led the Giants in tackles in each of his three seasons in the league. Collins had two interceptions, six deflections, and 104 tackles last season for the Giants.
