Good morning, New York Giants fans!

2020 NFL Trade Deadline: Here's the one trade every team should make, 32 different scenarios that make sense - CBSSports.com

New York Giants
Acquire: 2021 fifth-round draft pick (Colts)
Trade: WR Golden Tate

There's no reason Tate should be on the field for them to finish the year. He's fine, at this point in his career, but for his salary, what's the point, especially with a semi-rebuild inevitable? Shipping him to an inconsistent offense like Indy would be wise.

ESPN analyst on what Daniel Jones' Giants legacy hinges on

The best way for the Giants to determine if they truly have a franchise quarterback in Jones? Give him more weapons and more time.

“If he doesn’t correct it and it becomes a bigger problem, then you go to the next phase of the evaluation: Is this his surroundings or is this who he is now?” Riddick told The Post. “They are not at that point yet — and I don’t think anybody needs to be at that point until you get a more stable supporting cast, and you keep a coaching staff in place for more than one year.”

Time to stop patting Giants on the back for trying

So the question is: Is that better? Is losing week after week, after turning in representative efforts, better than what the Jets do week after week, entering the sausage grinder? It should be, on one level: better to have your heart broken as a fan than to never have your heart in it at all, right?

Still, eventually, these things add up. They multiply. And when the Giants host the Bucs at MetLife Stadium on Monday night, it is awfully easy to see how they might give the Bucs fits, despite the differences in their record and their immediate expectations. The Giants have a long and fun history with Tom Brady and ought to be able to get to him a few times Monday. We know how that’s worked in the end.

The Bucs defense ought to provide a special challenge for Jones, but the fact is that, while he tends to have his weekly dalliances with poor choices and worse execution, he’s already faced substantive defenses in the Steelers and the Rams and played pretty well. It just gets old getting a slap on the back at game’s end, the message: Get ’em next week.

At some point, next week has to actually arrive.
