Evan Engram: “It’s crazy how much better I’ve gotten at blocking”

Evan Engram: “It’s crazy how much better I’ve gotten at blocking”

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Evan Engram talks about his improvement as a blocker and not being held out of preseason When the New York Giants take the field against the Dallas Cowboys in September, they will be doing so with a player we have hardly seen outside of sideline shots. Neither starting tight end Evan Engram nor superstar running back Saquon Barkley have seen the field yet in preseason, and if they are held out from the third game, they likely won’t see the field until the regular season. Engram and Barkley are secure in their positions on the offense — and will...

DeAndre Baker returns to practice for Giants

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Let’s learn about that and more from coach Pat Shurmur Cornerback DeAndre Baker, who has missed a few days and did not play vs. the Chicago Bears on Friday because of a sprained left knee, returned to practice on Monday for the New York Giants.

Film Study: Checking in on the Giants’ offensive tackle depth

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Taking a closer look at Nick Gates and Chad Slade Much of the focus on the New York Giants offense over the offseason has been on the starting offensive line. After all, the 2018 version of the Giants’ line was one of the worst of Eli Manning’s career and fielding a good line has been one of the points of emphasis for the Giants over the last year and a half. However, the quality of the offensive line isn’t just tied to the starters. Giants fans got spoiled with the line of David Diehl, Rich Seubert, Shaun O’Hara, Chris Snee, and Kareem...

Giants at Bengals: Familiar faces dot Cincinnati roster

Giants at Bengals: Familiar faces dot Cincinnati roster

Bobby Hart | Photo by Patrick McDermott/ Read the names — do they show good news about the state of the Giants? When the New York Giants face the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night, the Bengals will feature a roster filled with players who are familiar to Giants fans. Cincinnati’s 90-man roster contains seven players who formerly played for the Giants. In many ways, looking at those players and considering whether or not they could have roles on the current Giants’ team is an illustration of how much the roster has changed. And, perhaps, depending upon your own judgment,...

Or, to be able to dissect hand placement and proper or improper offensive line technique. Or, to be able to explain each and every concept used on a particular play. I do, however, know a few things. Like good football from bad, and what winning effort looks like. With all of that preamble out of the way, something I like to do occasionally is review games not...

Sterling Shepard | Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Sterling Shepard takes positive step; Golden Tate has concussion The New York Giants had one positive development and one negative one on Sunday when it comes to their wide receiving corps. The bad new is the team announcing that Golden Tate has entered the concussion protocol. The good news is that Sterling Shepard practiced without a yellow non-contact jersey, the first time he has done that since fracturing his thumb during the first practice of training camp. Shepard said the thumb “has actually healed up pretty fast”...

Valentine’s Views: There is no quarterback controversy, and other thoughts

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Let’s offer some thoughts as the preseason rolls on Whether it’s a John Mara decision, a Pat Shurmur/Dave Gettleman decision or a combination of all of the above, Eli Manning is going to be the starting quarterback for the New York Giants to begin the 2019 season. He is going to continue to be the starting quarterback until he either proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he can no longer play at a capable level, which neither I nor the organization believes is currently the case, or the Giants fall hopelessly out of playoff contention. That’s...

I’m a day late after covering Friday night’s preseason game between the New York Giants and Chicago Bears. So, let’s get right to it.

Nick Gates vs. the Jets. | Photo by Elsa/ Nick Gates, Chad Slade, Evan Brown singled out by Pat Shurmur One of the primary questions for the New York Giants throughout the offseason, and the first few weeks of training camp and the preseason, has been who would emerge as the backups to the team’s rebuilt offensive line. Coach Pat Shurmur may have offered a huge hint during his conference call with reporters on Saturday, just slightly more than 12 hours after the Giants finished off the Chicago Bears, 32-13, in preseason action. “I’ve got confidence in everybody that we put out...
