‘Stay up!’ Documenting Joe Judge minute by minute during a Giants practice – The Athletic

In the give credit where it’s due department, this is a really cool look at the Giants’ head coach during Tuesday’s practice.

Carl Banks wants Lorenzo Carter to become 'Giants linebacker'

“I’m going to say this — it’s constructive and I would say this to him if I had the opportunity, so this is all coming from a place of love as if he were a brother, a teammate, a son — my message to Lorenzo Carter is that it’s time for him to become a Giants linebacker.

“There are a lot of players who have played linebacker for the Giants, but it’s been a long time since there’s been a Giants linebacker on the team. Lorenzo has the skill set to become what I consider a Giants linebacker in the tradition of Giants linebackers.’’

The Giants are No. 4 on this list at 7.0 percent.

The Giants check a lot of boxes here; they are breaking in a new head coach and a coordinator, and their quarterback is young and coming off an encouraging (while not necessarily good) rookie season. Daniel Jones was in the top five in the NFL a season ago in passes charted as “catchable, but inaccurate,” but he led the league in fumbles.

Andrew Thomas should help things, but the league’s fourth-least valuable defense got only marginally better with the acquisitions of James Bradberry and Xavier McKinney, meaning there will be a lot of pressure on the second-year player from Duke and his new coordinator, Jason Garrett, to score points. I’m skeptical.
