Damontre Moore said it has been shocking to see the number of injuries the Giants have suffered this preseason, but he had a philosophy to deal with it.

"At the end of the day, you have to forget about it and drive on," he said. "So what? Now what?"

What what?

So what? Now what? That's one of the mantras that the team has been using this summer, thanks to motivational speaker Dr. Kevin Elko, who has been working with the Giants.

"His big thing was to not let everything affect us," Moore said. "Not outside sources, the drama if it's a post that made you mad, if it's your girlfriend, if it's the stuff at home, a bad play. Anything."

Carl Banks has also had the ear of the Giants in this regard, Moore said, and he reminded them to not allow a bad play to turn into a bad day.

"All this stuff already happened, so control what you can control," Moore said of the piggybacking messages. "There's no point in harping over it, it'll only make it worse. Now that this has happened, what am I going to do now to try to change this around and get on from here? I think that's a good philosophy to apply to football. No matter how much you study or how prepared you are, eventually at some point in the game, some kind of adversity is going to happen. It's about you handling that adversity."
