#1 We know about what there is to know about the New York Giants at this point. von liny195 31.01.2019 07:42

They are not good — in fact Color Rush Kareem Martin Jersey , it would not be inaccurate to say that they are bad. However, after the Giants traded Damon Harrison to the Detroit Lions and Eli Apple to the New Orleans Saints, there change is afoot for the Giants. Let’s take a look at the effects of some of those changes, which means a concentration on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive front With Damon Harrison on the Detroit Lions, the direct beneficiary was rookie defensive tackle B.J. Hill. As Harrison and Dalvin Tomlinson played virtually the same number of snaps through the first part of the season, so to did Tomlinson and Hill this game. With the Giants once again playing, primarily, a 4-2-5 nickel defense, Tomlinson and Hill each played 42 defensive snaps, or 62 percent of the defensive snaps. All in all, this seems like about the right share of the snap count for the two. Defensive linemen need to be rotated over the course of a game, and that is even more true for the big guys than the edge players. The pair played well together, with Hill making his presence felt early in the game as both a run defender and pass rusher. The rookie finished the game with six total tackles and a pass deflected, while Tomlinson had three tackles of his own. The other beneficiary of Harrison’s departure was Mario Edwards Jr., who was acquired after being waived by the Oakland Raiders. Edwards played 21 snaps (31 percent) on defense, picking up a pair of tackles and generating pressure of his own on Alex Smith. Kerry Wynn continued his strong season, playing 29 snaps (43 percent), and has thrived in his role as the modern Dave Tollefson. He only had a pair of tackles, but Wynn was consistently around the ball or in the backfield when he was on the field. LinebackersWith starting middle linebacker Alec Ogletree out with an injury Authentic Riley Dixon Jersey , the Giants gave third year linebacker B.J. Goodson the mic. Goodson played, by far, the most snaps of his season, playing 59 (87 percent) of the defensive snaps as the starter. He performed well, picking up 8 total tackles and a tackle for loss. As could be expected from more of a “traditional” linebacker, Goodson wasn’t great dropping in coverage, but he did play well going down-hill, playing decisively and fighting through blocks well. With former nickel linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong now on the Cleveland Browns, UDFA rookie Tae Davis (42 snaps) and Nate Stupar (27 snaps) rotated as the weak-inside or weakside linebacker.Olivier Vernon played the second most snaps at 58 (85 percent), and he had the greatest impact of the Giants’ pass rushers, with three of the team’s five QB hits. He also had a 43-yard return on a fumble recovery. This brings us to another rookie third-round pick, Lorenzo Carter. Carter has seen his share of the defensive snap count rise in recent weeks, and the trend continued against Washington with 39 snaps (57 percent), spread between outside linebacker and defensive end. Carter showed up as well, with three tackles and a quarterback hit, as well as pushing his blocker back into the pocket several times. Like Hill, Carter is not yet a finished product, but his upside is tantalizing. All told, the Giants’ front seven wasn’t particularly productive against Alex Smith and a talented Washington offensive line Youth Evan Engram Jersey , but they didn’t play poorly, either.SecondaryAs we should expect, Landon Collins and Janoris Jenkins both played every defensive snap (68). B.W. Webb, starting at outside corner in the spot vacated by the trade of Eli Apple, played 67 snaps and free safety Curtis Riley played 66. With Webb starting outside, undrafted rookie Grant Haley took over the slot corner role, playing 39 snaps (57 percent). All things considered, Haley played reasonably well for a rookie seeing his first significant action as a pro. He finished with four tackles, and had some hiccups in coverage, but otherwise held up about as well as we should expect. It is (far) too early in his career to say whether Haley is an answer as the slot corner, but he showed enough to justify further looks in the second half of the season. Fellow undrafted rookie Sean Chandler, listed as a free safety, saw a bump in snaps as well, playing 18. Safety Michael Thomas played 11 snaps on defense.Things could get interesting for the Giants as the trade deadline approaches. Rumors have pegged both Collins and Jenkins as potential targets for other teams, and their departure could trigger a seismic shift in the Giants’ defense. Losing Jenkins could move Grant Haley from slot to outside — or bring newly acquired corner Tony Lippett on as a starter, if he is healthy enough. If Haley moves to outside corner, Chandler could come on as the slot corner, a position he has some experience with. Or the team could move Riley down from his free safety position to play corner again. If Collins is traded, the team could look at playing either Thomas or Chandler as the second safety. Of course Landon Collins Jersey , that is all speculation right now, but the snap counts for the Giants’ Week 10 game against the San Francisco 49ers could look wildly different from their games in the first half of the season. The co-owner of the New York Giants is embarrassed by the team's second straight 1-5 start and he wants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to make his highlights on the field instead of getting recognition from off-the-field comments.Speaking before the fall meeting of the NFL owners Tuesday, John Mara was clearly miffed by the disappointments of a season he had hoped would make fans forget the 3-13 campaign a year ago that led to the firings of coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese.New general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur turned over more than half the roster, spent almost $80 million rebuilding the offense line, made Beckham the highest-paid receiver in the league with a $95 million deal and had high hopes heading into the season.It hasn't worked out and the biggest disappointment came Thursday when the struggling Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles came to MetLife Stadium and embarrassed the Giants.What made the loss even more disappointing was the Giants felt they were close to turning things around."I'm sick about it, particularly the way we've disappointed our fans," Mara said. "To start out like this is very disappointing. I don't think you ever expect to go 1-5 ... two years in a row. I'm still embarrassed being 1-5. I can't stand up here and make any excuses about that. We suffer as much as our fans, maybe more."Beckham had been on his best behavior this season, but the losing seemed to catch up to him in recent weeks. He did an interview on ESPN more than a week ago where he complained that Eli Manning was not throwing the ball down the field. He also questioned the heart of his teammates.That did not sit well with Mara, who had spoken to Beckham about getting his act together in the offseason."I think he needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking," Mara said. "I wish he would create the headlines by his play on the field, as opposed to what he says and does off the field."Beckham leads the Giants with 45 catches for 506 yards, but he only has one touchdown catch.While the 37-year-old Manning has gotten most of the blame for the woes of the offense, Mara said a lot of players have to share the blame. He added that it would be up to Shurmur to decide if a change was to be made.Mara believes Gettleman and Shurmur will turn things around, and he defended their choice of running back Saquon Barkley with the second pick overall in the draft."We went with the best player in the draft," Mara said. "I still believe he's the best player in the draft. I'm thrilled with what he's accomplished so far, and I think the sky's the limit for him."Barkley has rushed for 438 yards and four touchdowns and caught 40 passes for 373 yards and two TDs.The choice has been criticized by some because the Jets took quarterback Sam Darnold with the third pick and they are 3-3.
