Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Simms’ view seems to coincide with the one yours truly has consistently expressed:
“I really think it’s set up for Eli to have a good year,” Simms told MSG 150. “If the chance comes up that maybe it’s not going well, they lose games, then Daniel Jones. If they think they can give him a shot somewhere during the year, they’ll take it. But only if the Giants think they are out of the race.” ...
“I really believe that Eli Manning, with his position and his knowledge, they’ve put a really good team around him on the offensive side,” Simms said. “I think he has a chance to have maybe one of the best years of his career statistically.”
Steve Serby summarizes the difference between Barkley and Beckham:
Barkley’s charisma, polish, professionalism and otherworldly gifts will make his transition from rookie to vocal leader a seamless one, and he embraces the role. Beckham, by his own admission, was no natural-born leader and struggled trying to be one, as much as the Giants wished he would grow into one.
As popular as Beckham was with teammates, he had a knack for saying or doing the wrong thing, and John Mara reluctantly signed off on an awful trade that cast Beckham in an addition-by-subtraction light. Barkley has a knack for saying and doing the right thing, and is viewed as a distraction only by the opponent.
Ralph Vacchiano predicts the Giants will be competitive, but will just miss the playoffs.
Carter has added 10-12 pounds.
“I’m just trying to get stronger. It’s a league full of big guys, and I have to get bigger if I want to stay in it.”
Barkley, at No. 21, is the only Giant on the list. Before you get upset that he isn’t ranked higher, he is the top-rated running back.
The Post calls Corey Coleman the “most intriguing” of the veterans being brought back by the Giants.
Some Giants fans won’t like Ralph Vacchiano’s first prediction, even though it would mean the Giants are in contention right to the final week of the season. That prediction? Manning starts all 16 games.
