Which Los Angeles Rams player would you want for the New York Giants?

Which Los Angeles Rams player would you want for the New York Giants?

Jalen Ramsey | Photo by Katelyn Mulcahy/ Vote in the poll I forgot to do this earlier in the week, but with time to kill before the New York Giants face the Los Angeles Rams at 4:05 p.m. ET let’s discuss which member of the Rams would be the best player to add to the Giants’ roster. For starters, we are NOT including star defensive tackle Aaron Donald. That’s too easy and, to be fair, I usually exclude Saquon Barkley when I ask rival writers which Giant they would take. So, Donald is off the table. The Giants desperately need playmakers on either side of the ball. With that in...

Giants vs. Rams: Crafting a leftward running plan for Giants’ offense

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports How to run against the Rams The search for the first victory of the 2020 season creeps into Week 4 for the New York Giants. After three-straight losses, and the loss of running back Saquon Barkley, that search has proven to be elusive so far. The task will not get easier, as the Giants face Aaron Donald and the stiff Los Angeles Rams defense, as well as an offense that seems to be getting back on track. As we have each week this season, we look to craft at least part of a game plan for Jason Garrett and Daniel Jones. Although this week there is a...

Rams coach Sean McVay: Saquon Barkley injury “makes you sick”

Sean McVay | Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ Takeaways from McVay’s time with New York media Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay, speaking to New York media on Wednesday, pretty much captured how New York Giants fans felt watching Saquon Barkley crumple to the turf with a season-ending torn ACL. “It makes you sick because he’s such a great kid and such a special talent,” McVay said. “I hate to see injuries like that occur, especially to such a special guy like him which I’m sure you guys all feel the same way I do.” With and without Barkley, the Giants are averaging a...

Saving Daniel Jones — Can the Giants do that without Saquon Barkley?

Saving Daniel Jones — Can the Giants do that without Saquon Barkley?

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Putting the quarterback in position to succeed This was supposed to be the fall of Daniel Jones’ development. Granted, there existed concerns about how the young passer would acclimate to a new offense - his third in three years - given everything that 2020 has put on our collective plates. Those concerns were exacerbated when the New York Giants lost Saquon Barkley for the season with a knee injury in just the second game of the year. That’s the thing about life. Like development, it is not linear. If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that life...

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ What is the Giants’ offense facing in the San Francisco defense? Two weeks ago it looked as though the New York Giants were up against insurmountable odds in their Week 3 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. But after an injury-plagued Week 2, the challenges looks more surmountable. The Giants are still reeling from the loss of Sterling Shepard (toe) and Saquon Barkley (ACL), but the 49ers were absolutely pummeled by injury. San Francisco will be without their top three pass rushers as well as their top cornerback, and some of their most important...

Friday spotlight: Can the Giants get more out of Evan Engram?

Evan Engram | Photo by Sarah Stier/ With Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard down, Giants could use added production from tight end In Week 5 of the 2017 NFL season the New York Giants lost wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris for the season. They also lost Sterling Shepard for a few games with an injury. That thrust rookie tight end Evan Engram to the forefront. Whether he was ready or not, Engram had to become the focal point of the Giants’ passing attack. He responded with 45 catches for 522 yards (11.6 yards per catch) with five of his six touchdown...

Even on Saquon’s carries out of shotgun, they can be “boom or...
