A word about the BBV Community Guidelines, and some Giants news

NFL: New York Giants at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, New York Giants fans! We will get to your headlines in a second, but first a word about proper conduct here at Big Big Blue View.

There are Community Guidelines here at Big Blue View. When you choose to comment, you are expected to follow them. Period. I strongly suggest you go back and read them.

You will notice that many of your “friends” won’t be commenting today. Close to 20 former community members were dealt the ban-hammer on Thursday. The kind of garbage that has been spewed in the comments here in recent days simply will not be tolerated.

Let me summarize. Attack the post, not the poster. No name-calling. No politics. No racism. No homophobia. The “N-word” gets you banned. The “F-word” gets you banned. No discussion.

If you can’t express an opinion without doing any of the things mentioned above, keep it to yourself. I don’t care how bad things get for the Giants, the expectation at this website is that you will treat each other with some decency. That includes Giants’ decision-makers. Disagree with their decisions, but this site is not going to tolerate some of the things I have seen GM Dave Gettleman called recently in the comments.

Now, on to more pleasant things.

Corey Coleman glad for fresh start

Since Aug. 5 Corey Coleman has been traded by the Cleveland Browns to the Buffalo Bills, cut by the Bills, picked up and cut twice by the New England Patriots, signed to the Giants practice (last week) and now added to the team’s 53-man roster.

That’s pretty amazing for a guy who was selected 15th overall, the first wide receiver taken, in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Coleman doesn’t like to talk about that vagabond journey.

“The past is the past,” he said. “I left that behind.”

Giants coach Pat Shurmur has indicated the team recognizes that Coleman, who has 56 catches over two season, has talent. They want to find out over the remaining nine games if he can have a future with the Giants.

“It’s all about opportunity,” Coleman said Thursday. “I feel like this organization gives me great opportunity to come here, for me to prove to them that I’m worthy to be here and I’m happy and blessed to be here.”

Saquon Barkley an Adrian Peterson fan

Adrian Peterson is in the 12th season of his Hall of Fame career, averaging 4.3 yards per carry and on pace for nearly 1,200 yards rushing, which would be the eighth 1,000-yard season of his career. Giants fans can only hope rookie Saquon Barkley has a career that approaches Peterson’s.

Barkley is an unabashed Peterson fan.

“Growing up, watching Adrian Peterson, big fan of his game. Even now, he’s still a special talent. He’s been doing it for so long. To be able to watch him play live is definitely going to be something that I’m excited to see,” Barkley said.

Peterson has been complementary toward Barkley’s game.

“That means a lot when you can catch the eye of a guy like that, like Adrian Peterson. He’s one of the best running backs to ever play in this game – a future Hall of Famer,” Barkley said. “I admire his game and how he plays. For him to say that about me, especially being a young guy in the league, definitely means a lot to me.”

Quadree Henderson impresses

The Giants have had a kick return revolving door all season. That may have ended Monday when rookie undrafted free agent Quadree Henderson averaged 20.5 yards on four kickoffs returns and 14.5 yards on two punt returns in his NFL debut.

What did he show special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey?

“Production,” McGaughey said.

“He’s a sure-handed guy, does a good job of catching the ball. He’s a good young player that has a lot of potential as a returner,” McGaughey said. “He did a good job. He did what he does, he did the same thing in college and played with a lot of confidence. He’s a confident kid, so I’m happy for him.”
