Instant analysis: It’s getting late early for the Giants

Cody Core after making a catch on Sunday. | Photo by Sarah Stier/ Are they really as bad as they have looked the first two weeks? It’s hard to argue otherwise Rinse. Repeat. The same issues we in the New York Giants’ Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys were front and center once again on Sunday as the Giants lost to the Buffalo Bills, 28-14. Bad defense. Check. After the Giants took a 7-0 lead the Bills scored touchdowns the next three times they touched the ball — on drives of 75, 70 and 98 yards. Not to pat myself on the back, but about two plays into it yours truly called the...

Film Room: Why Jake Dolegala made the cut

Film Room: Why Jake Dolegala made the cut

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports The Bengals surprised fans by keeping Jake Dolegala, here is why they did it... Perhaps the biggest surprise on the Bengals 53-man roster was quarterback Jake Dolegala. The rookie has elite size and a live arm, but he went undrafted out of Central Connecticut State. He has impressed ever since rookie camp and could be an excellent developmental prospect. Let’s take a look at how Dolegala made the team. Dolegala shows not only his arm strength but his accuracy on this deep pass to Cody Core. Core releases wide and streaks down the sideline. Dolegala puts...

Cody Core: Let’s get to know the new Giants wide receiver

Evan Engram and Cody Core exchange jerseys during a preseason game. | Bob Meyer-USA TODAY Sports So, what exactly are the Giants getting here? Many New York Giants fans had never heard of Cody Core until the Giants claimed him off waivers to take the 53-man roster spot of preseason fan favorite Alonzo Russell. It’s unfortunate for Russell, but the NFL is a cold, bottom-line business and the Giants like Core, with three years of experience in Cincinnati on offense and as a core special teams player, makes them better. Let’s get to know more about Core. Special teams value You hear...

Giants roster moves: WR Cody Core, OT Eric Smith claimed on waivers

Cody Core was playing against the Giants just a couple of weeks ago. Now, he is one. | Photo by Bobby Ellis/ Giants try to bolster a couple of spots on the roster The New York Giants were awarded two players — wide receiver Cody Core and offensive tackle Eric Smith — on waiver claims Sunday.

Bengals release WR Cody Core

Bengals release WR Cody Core

The Bengals are narrowing their receiving corps. The wide receiver position is going to be the most difficult for the Bengals to sort out this season, but they’ve already made a major decision.

Bengals can’t find the end zone in 13-6 loss to Colts

Bengals can’t find the end zone in 13-6 loss to Colts

Photo by Andy Lyons/ Jake Dolegala was slinging the ball, but a key OPI call proved costly in a one-score defeat to wrap up preseason play. The Colts came into Cincinnati for the annual I-74 Bowl in Preseason Week 4. Jake Dolegala and Rodney Anderson were the starters in the backfield for the Bengals, working with Cody Core, Ventell Bryant and Josh Malone on the offense. Dolegala threw 30 passes, completing 25 of them and compiling 239 yards. He didn’t throw any picks but lost one fumble. While Dolegala was able to move the ball down to the field, he never figured out how to get the...

Film Room: What value does Cody Core provide on special teams?

Film Room: What value does Cody Core provide on special teams?

Photo by Justin Casterline/ Every year when Cody Core makes the Bengals roster, fans are told about how good he is on special teams. Let’s take a closer look. When I was a young coach, I worked for a guy who said: “One in every five plays is a special teams play. It’s a third of the game.” While those numbers don’t add up, the importance of special teams cannot be understated. Just think about how much greater the change of yardage on an average special teams play is vs. the change on an average offensive play. Not only that, but any punt or kickoff can result in a...

Auden Tate suffers knee injury vs. Giants

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ The second-year receiver will not return. Auden Tate got the start at wide receiver tonight against the Giants in place of Cody Core. Unfortunately, his night has ended prematurely. Tate suffered a knee injury and has been declared out, per Jay Morrison of The Athletic. Auden Tate has a left knee injury. He is out. #Bengals— Jay Morrison (@JayMorrisonATH) August 22, 2019 The second-year wide receiver has been having a good preseason, so this setback is a major bummer.
