At 1-6, obviously not a lot of things have gone right for the New York Giants during the first half of the 2017 NFL season. coach Ben McAdoo said Monday the Giants have been “humbled.”
Still, some players are worthy of praise. We went through position-by-position reviews last week, and there were several standout players. Damon Harrison, Evan Engram, Landon Collins and Orleans Darkwa among them.
Which player, though, is the Giants’ first-half MVP?
For me, that is offensive lineman Justin Pugh.
The 27-year-old Pugh is not the league’s best left guard. Or, it’s best right tackle. He is, however, really good at guard. And he’s been fine at tackle this season. He has gone from guard to tackle back to guard and then out to tackle again without complaint. All the while doing a good job.
Pugh can be a free agent in the offseason. He has, undoubtedly, earned himself a ton of money.
