Giants have built impressive young core, and more things I think as Week 7 dawns

Giants have built impressive young core, and more things I think as Week 7 dawns

Darius Slayton | Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via It’s a Monday edition of ‘Valentine’s Views’ After playing on Thursday night, the New York Giants had a weekend off. They get back to work on Monday to prepare for a home game against the Arizona Cardinals. Here are some thoughts on the Giants as we head toward a very interesting Week 7 matchup. Youth is being served Daniel Jones. Dexter Lawrence. DeAndre Baker. Oshane Ximines. Ryan Connelly. Darius Slayton. All rookies. Saquon Barkley. Will Hernandez. B.J. Hill. Lorenzo Carter.

Giants news, 10/5: DeAndre Baker, Dexter Lawrence showing improvement

Photo by Michael Hickey/ Let’s get to your Saturday headlines Good morning, New York Giants fans! “Tremendous” improvement from DeAndre Baker After two rough games to start his NFL career, rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker has been better the past two weeks. Friday, defensive backs coach Everett Withers spoke about why: “I think he’s really tried to focus and detail himself on the little things, and that means technique, fundamentals and communication. Those are all things … When you’re a college corner, you go stand out there, there’s no huddle and the guy comes to you,”...

Beyond the box score: Young defenders offer Giants reason for optimism

Beyond the box score: Young defenders offer Giants reason for optimism

DeAndre Baker | Photo by Jim McIsaac/ As young players get better, so should the defense The numbers are mostly nothing short of awful for the New York Giants after three weeks. 30th in a 32-team league in points allowed. 31st in the league in yards allowed. Last in passing yards allowed per game (332.3). 31st in passer rating against. 28th in first downs allowed. 31st in yards allowed per play. There are probably more where these came from. You get the point, though. The defense has not been very good. In fact, it’s been downright bad by most any statistical measure. Yet, there are...

Are the Giants using struggling rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker correctly?

Are the Giants using struggling rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker correctly?

DeAndre Baker (27) | Photo by Sarah Stier/ Baker seems to be playing more off coverage than expected — the question is who is responsible for that? DeAndre Baker is struggling. No one who has watched the New York Giants rookie cornerback in his first two games can deny that. It has often looked like Baker, a player drafted not for his athleticism but for his ability to press receivers at the line of scrimmage and mirror them, has not played to his strengths over the first couple of games. Chris addressed this in a film study earlier in the week. The obvious question is why? Are the...

BBV mailbag: Eli Manning, Daniel Jones, DeAndre Baker, more

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The mail’s here! It’s Saturday, and you know what that means. Let’s open up the Big Blue View mailbag and see what is on the minds of New York Giants fans. ctscan asks: First off, I’d like to voice the sentiment that so many of us feel, “thank you so much for everything you’ve done Eli Manning. Your presence on the field and off has made me proud to be a Giants fan these last 15 years.” With that solemn duty having been taken care of, I asked the question that was my initial reaction and that I have since seen raised in the media, “if the...

Film Study: Should Giants fans already be concerned about DeAndre Baker?

Film Study: Should Giants fans already be concerned about DeAndre Baker?

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The rookie CB had a rough outing in his first start, but was it as bad as it looked? The news of the day, and week, is that the New York Giants have decided to move on from Eli Manning and install Daniel Jones as the team’s new starting quarterback. But there are 51 other players on the roster besides Manning and Jones, and their play matters, too. After a bad opening week game that saw the Giants’ defense look less like an obstacle put in place to keep the Dallas Cowboys out of the end zone and barely like a speed bump, the Giants had to make a change....
