Damon Harrison welcomes new NYG regime and defensive system

Posted Feb 2, 2018

Damon "Snacks" Harrison gave his take on the Giants' new GM and Head Coach: 


BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Count Damon Harrison among the Giants who are enthused about the arrival of Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur as the Giants’ general manager and coach, respectively. But he is mindful they are now Giants because the team finished 3-13 in 2017. 

“I don’t like change much, but these are the cards that we have been dealt,” the veteran defensive tackle said during a brief interview today in the Mall of America. “I’ve spoken to the new GM a few times, and I think he will get us back on the right track. I like the way he thinks and his vision.”

Gettleman speaks frequently of his affinity for linemen on both sides of the ball. He believes good lines give teams a chance to win.

Harrison was a first-team All-Pro in the Giants’ 4-3 scheme in 2016. New coordinator James Bettcher ran a predominately 3-4 defense with his previous team, Arizona.

Harrison said he would have no trouble adjusting.

“I’ve done it my whole career,” said Harrison, who just finished his sixth NFL season and second with the Giants. “It wouldn’t be a problem. I just have to watch some film. I don’t know how the new defensive coordinator runs his defense. It’s not always a zero technique, it could be just like a four-three.

“Whatever they need me to do, I’ll do it.”
