Let’s see what’s happening

NFL: New York Giants-OTA Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are a handful of headlines to get your Friday started.

Steve Kerr slams NFL’s ‘fake patriotism’ in response to new national anthem policy -
The Warriors coach was highly critical of the NFL’s new approach.

NFL national anthem policy just makes patriotism cheap as hell -
The NFL’s national anthem policy demands you respect the anthem, which is why that policy deserves no respect.

NFL reportedly adopted its anthem policy without an official vote. How? -
Roger Goodell saying all 32 teams agreed on the national anthem policy seems disingenuous.

Ten NFL streaks that will (or won't) be snapped in 2018 season -

THE STREAK: The New York Giants haven't reached 30 points in 33 games.

Will it live? No.

Why? Odell Beckham Jr. returns. The team drafted Saquon Barkley. And most importantly, they signed Nate Solder and drafted Will Hernandez to revamp the offensive line. So not only will the G-Men break this streak, but I say they top 30 points in half their games. And yes, I do realize Eli Manning is still their quarterback. But it only seems like he's that old. Like when you find out that William H. Macy is really just 48. You think, Wow, I thought that guy was like, way older. But nope, he's 48. So, Eli is going to be great in this offense. (All right, by now, you've gone to Google to find that William H. Macy is 68. But, Eli isn't that old by comparison, so that's something, right?)
