Sights and sounds of Giants’ camp: Ramping up for Jets’ week

0 votes

 The New York Giants held their second consecutive padded practice Tuesday afternoon as they get ready to play the New York Jets on Friday night. That game is always a special one. League-wide that’s because it is the one coaches typically use to most closely simulate a regular season game Youth Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , with game-planning and extensive use of the starting personnel. But for the teams which share Met-Life Stadium, this game has become an annual tradition where the Giants and Jets play out their intra-city rivalry — at least in the years when the NFC East and AFC East don’t play each other in the regular season. As such, this practice was a “carded” practice, and conducted like a practice before a regular season game. But even though this isn’t a practice as we’ve grown accustomed to seeing over the last month, we’re still bringing you the sights and sounds as best we can.On the practice fieldAs the Giants warmed up, it was obvious that Saquon Barkley would continue to slowly work his way back from his hamstring strain. All warmed up, it was time for individual drills:But with real, meaningful, regular season football looming, we’re less concerned with individual drills and more concerned with team work. Meanwhile, Barkley and rookie defensive tackle R.J. McIntosh were doing work on the side as they come back from their respective ailments. While the defense was getting some work in, the Giants’ offensive linemen got work in on their own. As did Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. Back to team drills, the Giants’ were working on their Red Zone play.On the day that Victor Cruz formally announced his retirement from the NFLThere was at least one former Giant in attendance today. Maybe Antrel Rolle was hoping to sneak his way on to the Giants’ depth chart at defensive back.Giants-Cowboys ‘Kudos & Wet Willies’ review You waited all day for Sunday night, then the New York Giants disappointed you with a 20-13 stinker of a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. You have been waiting all morning for “Kudos & Wet Willies,” and while K&WW is a little later than usual it’s here.Let’s get to our traditional day after review.Kudos to ...Saquon Barkley — Well, if you are going to spend the entire night checking the ball down you might as well set a record while doing it. The 14 passes Barkley caught broke Tiki Barber’s franchise record for receptions in a game Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , which had been 13. He’s a really nice option when you can’t get the ball down the field, but Barkley can’t be the whole offense.Riley Dixon — At least the Giants punter had a nice night. He punted six times, surrendered just 14 return yards, had three punts downed inside the 20-yard line and had a 40.0-yards per punt net average.Damon Harrison — Big ‘Snacks’ just keeps going and going. Dallas did a lot of things on offense Sunday — big plays in the passing game, mesmerizing the Giants with the read option among them. The one thing they did not do was have any success running the ball in Harrison’s direction. ‘Snacks’ had four tackles and quarterback hit.Cody Latimer — Had the Giants only really big play of the night, making a contested catch of a Manning pass for a 37-yard gain that set up an Aldrick Rosas field goal that got the Giants on the board in the third quarter. Latimer also averaged 28.5 yards on two kickoff returns.Wet Willies to ...Offensive line — Here is something I wrote last night: “Stunts. Blitzes. Four-man rushes. The Giants offensive line couldn’t handle any of it.”Here is something left tackle Nate Solder said: “They blitzed. They ran stunts. They rushed four. They did a number of things and we didn’t pick up any of it.”I swear, I wrote “Things we learned” before seeing Solder’s quote. Really. Hand on a Bible.It isn’t, though, like it was hard to see. When Dallas blitzed, it seemed like the Giants had no clue where they were coming from or who was supposed to pick up the blitzer. When the defensive linemen ran basic stunts the Giants — mostly Patrick Omameh and Ereck Flowers on the right side — seemed unable to figure out how to pass guys off. Eli Manning got sacked six times times, four in the first half when it seemed like a constant jailbreak to the quarterback. The Giants averaged a pitiful 2.1 yards rushing the ball (17 carries, 35 yards) with Saquon Barkley earning much of what the Giants did get on his own.Maybe it will get better as the revamped offensive line (with a new starting center following the awful injury to Jon Halapio) but the rebuild to this point has been a failure. There really isn’t a single member of that group who should feel good about the way he has played thus far.The Giants will never be able to run a competent offense and take advantage of the play-making talent they have without blocking that gives them a chance.Shane Smith — I really like Smith. The young man is a great kid, personable, accommodating. What good to a team, though, is a fullback who doesn’t block? Smith played four snaps on offense Sunday night. On one Authentic Kerry Wynn Jersey , he had no idea who to block and a blitzer ran right by him on his way to Manning. On another, he knew who to block.
