Good morning, New York Giants fans!

While you’re enjoying your weekend and getting ready for a Saturday filled with college football games, here are some Giants headlines for your reading pleasure.

At least this Giants rookie gives Dave Gettleman reason for optimism in another lost season -

This is about Dexter Lawrence, chosen with the 17th overall pick. The more we see of Lawrence the harder it is to argue with the decision to select him.

Bye week silence from Giants' leadership is deafening

What concerns me most about the current state of the Giants has nothing to do with Pat Shurmur, Saquon Barkley’s health, the struggling offensive line, DeAndre Baker or the ball security of Daniel Jones. What troubles me most is the lack of accountability from the general manager’s office about where the Giants stand during this bye week.

We should have heard from Dave Gettleman this week. We should have heard from the leader of this storied NFL franchise about what he thinks about a 2-8 record and a six-game losing streak. We should hear from Gettleman what has gone wrong and what, if anything, he thinks is going right.

Instead we have heard nothing. Nothing from Gettleman. Nothing from co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch. Nothing from any decision makers other than Shurmur, the embattled head coach, who is left on his own to fend off the critics.

How much damage can a helmet to the head do? Ex-Giant weighs in on Myles Garrett-Mason Rudolph brawl -

An NFL helmet weighs six pounds. Think of having someone swing a six-pound sledgehammer at your head. That’s what we’re talking about here.

Of course Pat Shurmur is on this list.

Time for Giants to be seriously concerned about DeAndre Baker

Hard to believe, but 10 games into his career we are already talking about the Giants needing to salvage the rookie cornerback.
