Good morning, New York Giants fans!
In this subscription only piece, The Athletic says of the Giants that “The results may not be immediate, but at least the franchise appears to have a plan to reverse the downward spiral it’s been on since Super Bowl XLVI.”
“I think they did really well,” former Minnesota Vikings general manager and Tennessee Titans president Jeff Diamond told NJ Advance Media. “I think they added talent, and they’re headed in the right direction.”
No doubt the Giants cannot afford to have Thomas turn into Ereck Flowers 2.0. It’s why they drafted him — he was the safest offensive tackle in the class.
Boring is usually the best way to describe the Giants’ uniforms.
25. Giants. Fun fact, the team nicknamed “Big Blue” actually wore red for most of its first 31 years in the NFL. OK, maybe it’s not that fun, but you try digging up something snazzy about one of the league’s enduring, but pedestrian, uniforms. The colors are muted, the design is understated and even the “ny” logo is in lowercase. What is this, the little apple?
Best look: The Giants’ color-rush jersey ranks among the best of that genre, with a white jersey that evokes the feel of the 1976-99 jerseys. It looked fabulous last season during the Week 9 game against the Cowboys on “Monday Night Football.”
“I interviewed 12 teams before the draft and everyone had (McKinney) as their top safety,” Casserly said. “I had him as my top safety. The guy is a natural centerfielder as far as being able to have range and instincts. In college you saw him come down and cover tight ends, press wide receivers. I don’t know about pressing wide receivers in the NFL, but I’ll tell you: He can cover tight ends and they need that guy.”
Hayden Winks shows how and why runs to the outside are better than ones up the middle. The Giants’ constant attempts to blast Saquon Barkley up the middle the past two seasons drove me nuts.
Looks like the 2020 NFL schedule will not include any trips across the pond, which makes way too much sense in the current COVID-19 environment.
