Giants’ Shurmur Has Some Work To Do In Second Half « CBS New York
At 1-7, the Giants playoff hopes are dead for all intents and purposes. But, head coach Pat Shurmur has some decisions to make in the second half, including a big one at QB.

2018 NFL midseason awards from Bill Barnwell - Picks for MVP, players of year, best rookies, plays

First: Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants

Barkley's numbers are inflated, and he should still win Rookie of the Year. Just 21.6 percent of his carries have turned into first downs, which is just below the running back average of 21.8 percent. Barkley has 152 yards from scrimmage in garbage time, when the Giants start drives with no more than a 1 percent chance of winning the game. The only players with more are Chris Ivory (155) and Odell Beckham Jr.. (165).

And yet, you've seen him play and know what I'm talking about. Barkley has six touches for 30 yards or more when nobody else has more than four. He has 348 more yards from scrimmage than any other rookie and is on pace for 2,032 yards from scrimmage, which only Eric Dickerson and Edgerrin James pulled off as rookies. The Giants haven't done many creative things with Barkley, as he has caught just four passes which traveled longer than six yards in the air. He is the "Get Out of Jail Free" card for an offense that is tethered to the ground by a horrific offensive line and a quarterback who is crumbling into dust.
