NFL: New York Giants-Minicamp TODAY NETWORK

The New York Giants have wrapped up their offseason program, and players have now scattered for the summer. We’re still here producing daily Giants content, though, and on our latest podcast John Schmeelk of joins us to break down the offseason.

Topics discussed:

  • How critical the development of the defense will be to the success or failure of the 2019 Giants.
  • The impressive play of cornerback DeAndre Baker during the spring.
  • How the Giants are using Dexter Lawrence, and why they are doing it. Also, a little bit on why the Giants’ current 3-4 defense is different schematically from the old Lawrence Taylor-Carl Banks 3-4.
  • Pass rush vs. pass coverage, and a little discourse on analytics in football.
  • Why Evan Engram is so important to the Giants’ passing attack.
  • Why Saquon Barkley might have more value as a receiver than as a runner.
  • Why Giants fans should feel good about Daniel Jones as the team’s future at quarterback.
  • Why Eli Manning can still be successful leading the Giants’ offense.
