Two takeaways from the interview: The poor line play is impacting Daniel Jones' decision making and his belief that Evan Neal still has a chance to be "a good football player."

Exploring the Giants’ ‘dysfunctional’ offensive line. How did it get so bad? | The Athletic

Per TruMedia, this year’s Giants have allowed the most pressures per dropback (47.7 percent) than any Giants unit over the past 10 years, eclipsing last year’s rate (43.4 percent). The Giants have already allowed 104 pressures, putting them on a 17-game pace for 354. The previous high over the last decade was 272 pressures in 2022.

The Giants have allowed a league-high 30 sacks this season, including 28 of Jones. They’re on a 17-game pace to surrender 102 sacks this season, which amazingly enough, wouldn’t be an NFL record.

Inside the NFL turf debate: Injuries, safety measures, problems |

Mark Drakos, an orthopedic surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, had a fellowship with the Giants and was on the committee charged with making a recommendation about different synthetic turf surfaces for MetLife Stadium — home of the Giants and Jets — prior to its inaugural season in 2010. Drakos said grass wasn’t an option.

MetLife stuck with synthetic turf because “natural grass did not hold up for the busy fall schedule with two teams, 20 NFL home games, and the Northeast climate,” according to Helen Strus, VP of marketing and communications for MetLife Stadium.

Allen today said Diggs holds himself and his teammates to high standards, and they like that about him — and Allen says too many in the media have the wrong idea about Diggs.

“People are throwing different ideas about what he was mad at on the sideline. He was mad at himself for running the wrong release on a route,” Allen said. “He’s a competitor, he’s a fiery competitor. I’m tired of hearing all this nonsense from people. There’s a lot of guys in the league who have that fire who don’t get talked about."
