How do people feel about the Giant's offensive line this year? I know they made some upgrades this offseason; in the preseason so far does the unit seem to be playing well?

Can't have both tackles whiff like this.

Thanks. That should help Barkeley and the receivers as well.  Last year's OL was one of the worst.

Barkley is going to break some records over the next few seasons ... 

I would not be surprised if he rushes for 2000 yds and/or breaks the record for yards from scrimmage over the next couple of years, ... 1000 rushing 1000 receiving is also possible in a given season

Yeah that was horrendous ... Giants will likely be drafting a LT next season

Nate Solder is being paid a lot of coin on a four year deal he signed last year. For better or worse, I doubt he is replaced next year.

NFL contracts are rarely guaranteed ... Soldier could be released in 2020 with a cap hit of $8m and the following year 2021 with a cap hit of $4M so I doubt he will be on the team in 2021 ... unless he is still performing at a high level

Draft a LT next year and break him in at RT or shift Soldier to right tackle if he is no longer cutting it at LT

What is Eli worth to the Colts right now? 

Seems like a match made in heaven ... Colts QB Manning has a nice ring to it? 

Colts were one of the top teams favored to win the Superbowl just 3 days ago ... this has to drop them to 20-1 or 25-1 

New England Patriots 6-1
Kansas City Chiefs 6-1
Los Angeles Rams 10-1
New Orleans Saints 10-1
Indianapolis Colts 14-1

Absolutely nothing!!!

Brissett while no Luck will do just fine for the Colts. Eli isn’t going into Indy with zero knowledge of their system and giving them a better chance to win than Brissett does right now. There is no need to for them to give the Giants assets.

Plus Eli is 38 years old with a no trade clause in his contract. Why would he want to go play in the house his brother built?

Guaranteed money is over after 2019 and he can be cut for $8M dead money - saving $9M in cap space.  Can do a June 1 cut to split that $8M between 2020 and 2021 if they choose.

Vegas doesn't agree with you ... they went from 14-1 to 30-1 ... I would say Eli would put them in the 20 or 25-1 range

Yeah cause Brissett is better than Eli and more likely to win a Superbowl 

Go look at Brissett's career #'s and compare them to Eli's #'s last year to see just how wrong you

It's not about either QB's numbers. It's about Eli going to a new team, learning a new system, learning to play with new teammates. Plus the Colts aren't going to give up anything to get a quarterback at Eli's age who does not have the capability to lead them to a Super Bowl. If you are under the impression that Eli can lead anyone to a Super Bowl at this point in his career, you are mistaken.

Peyton is whispering in Irsay's ear right now. The Colts would be a better team with Eli replacing Brissett. He'd pick up a new offense quickly. He'd have a better offensive line,better receivers and a better defense. He'd have a better head coach. He'd complete the circle. A Manning is forced out of a franchise he helped build into a contender. The Golden Boy who replaced him is booed off the field. A Manning returns to lead that franchise back to a championship. (Of course he'd be booed when he retires next year) It's a made for Hollywood story.

"The Manning Brothers"...starring Peyton Manning as himself.....Adam Sandler as the goofy kid brother Eli.....Robert Dinero as Archie,The Don of a football family.....Jessica Lange as

Mom Olivia....and  Liam Hemsworth as Cooper,the star who never was but coulda been.   I smell an Oscar.

Wait! You really believe that adding Eli Manning to the Colts roster less than two weeks before the season starts will make the Colts a legitimate Super Bowl contender?

Yes ... without a doubt ... Veteran potential HOFer vs journyman quality QB ... All Day  

Doesn't take a Veteran long to learn a new system ... Eli did it last season and had one of the best seasons of his career

Sure it was Eli’s best season in years but that was only good for about the 20th QB in the league in terms of QB rating.

Also Eli had an entire offseason and training camp to learn Shurmur’s system, he wouldn’t have nearly that much time if he were to be traded to the Colts.

 

Obviously Eli has had a better career than Brissett but I think Brissett gives the Colts a better chance to win this season than Eli would.

Also I’m not so sure we should label a young guy still on his rookie contract a ‘journeyman’.

13 Tds in 23 games 17 starts screams journeyman ... 2 starts for the Pats and 0 TDs is unheard of

LOL a little context might help

He was thrust into a starting role in NE as a rookie because Jimmy G got hurt and Brady was serving a suspension. While he didn’t throw any TD’s he did run for one and he didn’t throw any interceptions. The Patriots went 1-1 in his 2 games as a starter.

So in NE as a rookie probably just getting 3rd string reps in training camp he is called on to start 2 games early in the season and plays good enough to win 1 of 2.

 

He was traded in September of his 2nd season in the league (2017) to the Colts after Luck was injured.

In IND as a 2nd year player he joins the team in September of that season ends up being the starter and throws 13 TD against 7 interceptions and runs for 4 TD’s.

Trades like Eli to IND this late into camp are not unheard of but are rare for a reason: learning the playbook and teammates' tendencies (building chemistry with receivers) takes time.  That being said, Eli is a veteran and is smart and could probably pick up the Colt's playbook in two weeks well enough to be effective.  Is he better at this point in his career than Brissett?  No question.

I would say a fourth round pick would be fair value.

Will it happen? Probably not. But it isn't crazy.  Colts will be looking for a veteran backup in any case.

Garoppolo’s 1st start was in 2016. It was his 3rd year in the league. The Patriots scored 23 points against the Cardinals. The Cardinals went 7-8-1 that season and missed the playoffs

Brissett’s 1st start was in 2016. As a rookie. The Patriots scored 27 points against the Texans. The Texans went 9-7 that season and lost to the Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Garoppolo’s 1st TD came in 2014 (27 attempts) when he was a rookies at age 23 ... Brissett was 24 as rookie (55 Attempts) 0 TDs 

Brissett has an extremely low TD % .... I cant even find a comparable QB

I don't know. If I were him I would. The writing is on the wall in NY.  He won't be replaced this year, unless the team struggles. But he will be replaced next year. Why not go somewhere that you can start over with a clean slate and a better team and where your replacement isn'tsitting on the sideline yet?

2014 - Jimmy threw his 1st TD with 7 minutes to go in a game that they were losing 41-7 to Kansas City at the time. AKA garbage time

Whats the matter with you ... the Patriots were shut out for first time ever at Gillette Stadium and the 1st time since 2006 under Brissett ...against the Bills!?

Brissett has a 2.5 TD%  for his career ... he's terrible ! that's worse than Josh Rosen as a rookie with the Cardinals who were the worst team in the NFL last year 

Not sure why you are such a Brissett fan but you'd better hurry out and get his Jersey before they are all gone  ...they are flying off the shelves

For any Giant fans who were disappointed that we let Josh Rosen and Dwayne Haskins pass us by in consecutive drafts ... we can now take solace in knowing that Rosen now with his 2nd team has been beaten out by Fitzmagic despite the Phins using a 2nd and 5th to acquire him and Haskins who we were crazy to pass up has been beaten out by journeyman Case Keenum.

While it is way to early to tell ... I'm feelin pretty good about our disastrous pick of Daniel Jones who has completed a mere 85% of his passes while not throwing an INT and putting up easily the highest avg per pass attempt (12.5) of all 1st rd QBs over the past 2 preseasons. Mayfield (8.1) is the only other to even clear 7.5 yards per pass

I think you are exactly right with the bolded. But would you rather he look good in his 6 preseason drives or bad in his 6 preseason drives? Obviously, you want him to look good and he did.

Kramer is the same person that is Phoebe on Friends, bumbling idiots. this is the NY Jets .

but, at least there not the Lions, or Brownies, or Bungles.when they win a SB in this century , hit me up! it's only been half a century. but they're gettin' close aren't they? I like Darnold.

Giants waived/released DT Chris Slayton, RB Jon Hilliman, WR T.J. Jones, WR Reggie White Jr., TE C.J. Conrad, TE Jake Powell, OL Paul Adams, OL Evan Brown, OL Malcolm Bunche, OL James O’Hagan, DL Freedom Akinmoladun, DL Jake Ceresna, DL John Jenkins, LB Joey Alfieri, LB Jake Carlock, LB Terrence Fede, LB Avery Moss, LB Josiah Tauaefa, DB Tenny Adewusi, DB Terrell Sinkfield, Jr., P Johnny Townsend and LS Taybor Pepper.

Slayton was the No. 245 overall pick of the draft. A workhorse/grinder type, he will likely try to develop on the practice squad.

No Slayton, Reggie White Jr., or T.J. Jones? What?

"They like the vet presence in the QB room". Well hire the dude as a coach already. I don't see any upside to keeping Tanney for abilities on the field at all. I was thinking his horrid play vs the Pats' scrubs was going to be the writing on the wall. In general, I think the team has improved over previous years efforts. Heck, watching to see if they claim anyone this year will be hugely telling. The waiver window blood bath last year was all the signs anyone needed that the team had massive roster problems going into the year. But I don't get why Tanney is able to hang on.

How do NYG fans feel about Sterling Shepard?  Given that OBJ is gone and Tate is sidelined for four weeks, what kind of production do you expect from Sterling?  Is his thumb healed?

It feels like he has not gotten as much buzz as he should but maybe I am missing something.

His thumb is healed and he'll be ready to go  but ... I like Shepard as a #2  and those are the #'s that I think he will produce as a #1 ... Giants are going to spread it out and run a lot

... Yes, because he knows the Giants plays/signals and they can get them. Team do it to division rivals all the time. You think Giants were serious about former Cowboy Rod Smith? Look at the recent cuts/pickup, you'll find a ton of inter-division stuff

I would have preferred them to take the signals from a guy with zero upside vs a guy who might have upside. I didn't like it when they keep Tanney last year, but if I squinted and looked sideways at it, I could see the logic.  I definitely don't see it this year.

Giants placed CB Sam Beal on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

More tough luck for Beal, who missed all of 2018 with a shoulder injury. The former third-round supplemental pick began OTAs as a starter and was expected to play meaningful snaps for the Giants in 2019 if he proved to be healthy. The Giants secondary is going to need a big rookie campaign from Deandre Baker.

Of of course. He is at least designated to return since he was on the active roster.
