Here are the key takeaways from Giants head coach Pat Shurmur's Monday press conference...
On the job status of Ereck Flowers, who Shurmur did not contemplate moving on Sunday:
"Like I said, he's like every player. I think I know where you're going with this, he's like every player. He had a lot of really good plays and he had a couple that he'd like to have back. ... He had the tripping penalty and then on the hold, and that happens frequently, the quarterback scrambled, which was good, and unfortunately there's times when those holds occur. That was the gist of it the first drive. ... He's like every player. Again, he had a lot of really good reps and he had a couple he'd like to have back. He's going to work to get better just like every player."
On whether he considered having Odell Beckham Jr. return the game-ending punt:
"Especially in that situation, I mentioned I didn't because we were going for the block. Typically in that situation, the returner knows there's a decent chance you might fair catch it. He (Kaelin Clay) did have a little more space than you normally have, he just misfielded it."
On the only injury the team suffered Sunday:
"Wayne Gallman is the only guy that got hurt yesterday, a knee, so we'll just see where he's at. He's questionable moving forward."
On the mental state of the team:
"I've been involved in a lot of first games of the season - won about half of them, and lost about half of them. You just move forward. That's the important thing is you move forward. You learn from the mistakes you made, you build on the things you did well and you just keep moving. That's the important piece. That may get old as we go through these Mondays with me saying that, but you can win a game and still go through that process. When you lose a game, it hurts more, but you still go through the same process."
